Thomson Plaza Food for your enjoyment

Thomson Plaza Food, 5 places to chose from

Thomson Plaza is one of the oldest malls in Singapore and looks much less glamorous from the outside than some other shopping centres in the Lion City’s downtown and suburbia. However, an interesting feature about this mall is the fact that it is very disability-friendly. This also gives people in wheelchairs access to all four floors via ramps. Also there are door levers, which is in favour of people who do not have proper control over their hands. There are plenty of retail outlets in the mall, dedicated to various themes. Of the 150 shops, restaurants and cafes we have picked 5 Thomson Plaza food venues which have international flavour and are worth visiting.

  1. Subway
  2. Gelare
  3. Peach Garden
  4. Sushi Tei
  5. Paradise Inn


No doubt, you have heard of Subway, not once and twice. This American fast food chain has outlets in almost every corner of the world and the Thomson Plaza food map is not an exclusion. In Subway, you can design your bespoke sandwich just the way you want it. Pick everything yourself from the type of bread, to the fillings inside. As most fast food restaurants, Subway offers meal deals. Which means you get a sandwich, a drink and a side for a set price. Ideal option for the times you just want something quick and unpretentious to eat.

The gallery of ice cream, where you can have countless masterpieces of this fine icy sweetness. This is not just your ordinary ice cream house. It’s a place serving gourmet desserts, featuring out-of-this-world ice cream. We guarantee your little ones will be over the moon, and so will be your sweet tooth also if you have one.

Paradise Inn

Seemingly Chinese cuisine is popular in Singapore, so naturally, many of the Thomson Plaza restaurants are dedicated to it. Paradise Inn is a restaurant, part of the Paradise group, serving traditional Chinese dishes with homemade taste. If you haven’t already, you must try their double boiled soup. Mmm, yum!

Sp as we said in the beginning of this post, Boulevard Emirates Towers is all about exclusivity and that royalty feeling. Our next pick of a restaurant, Mundo, which is a description that fits it very well.

From international cuisine featuring Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Indian and other Asian dishes.

La Cantine du Faubourg

It is also a well-known fact that the French cuisine is one of the most artistic and finest worldwide. So we wouldn’t be able to talk about luxury in the Boulevard Plaza Dubai at Emirates Towers if there wasn’t at least one extremely classy French restaurant. La Cantine du Faubourg is not just that. Perhaps one of the best French restaurants in Dubai and is truly the lovechild of two artists who also had passion for food. No superlatives will do enough justice to the place so the best thing to do would be to book a table and experience it yourself.
