I think I would be doing a great service to my readers if I don’t write about Changi Terminal 2’s newest Gourmet Garden. Of course, you can’t expect anything less from the World’s Best Airport. (and so it was — still is — after Qatar’s airport in Doha dethroned it.) Just stay with me, because, if all of the airports in the world would have this much food choices, you don’t really need a lounge to keep yourself and your mouth entertained. (Of course, the Krisflyer Gold Class lounge at Changi is just a whole new level.)

Gourmet Garden looks so much like Hong Kong’s International Airport. I remember the spaciousness and brightness of the airport just gives you the ultimate traveller vibes. I love high ceilings. They’re my ultimate choice when it comes to interiors. No doubt Gourmet Garden is a lounge on its own. No worries with Wi-Fi; the entire airport is equipped with it.

So for those of you whose flights are departing from Changi Terminal 2, here is a list of restaurants located at the new Gourmet Garden.

Hainan Story and their bolo yiu buns. This is plain genius. I don’t need to go to Jewel to grab some buns to go, and come on, bakeries at the airport are always, always welcome. Not to mention, one cup of Kopi-C for the road.

But of course, if you fancy Melbourne’s coffee roasters Hudson’s, nobody’s stopping you from grabbing a cup of flat white.

Just don’t make yourself too comfortable, because Pret a Manger is just beside Gourmet Garden. J’aime Pret. I used to eat there a lot when I lived in New York. Bacon & Eggs brioche, Salmon and Egg croissant, and yogurt granola cups. This is my everyday food. Je prend une tasse de cafe au lait et un croissant a emporter, s’il vous plait!

For the hungry ones, surprisingly there’s a stall selling Soon Tofu sets. Not so much like SBCD, but for $10.90, I’d say this is terrific. Just make sure you don’t overdo the spices before a long haul flight…

I always say the best foods to eat before a flight is dimsum. It’s light, it’s warm and keeps you full. I always go for dimsum (Chicken Char Siew Buns and plump Hargaos) at Krisflyer Gold Class Lounge, but I couldn’t resist grabbing an order of prawn rice rolls ($5.80) at Chef Wei HK Cheong Fun.

Just look at that. Silky and stuffed with plump prawns. Nothing beats freshly steamed chee cheong funs. Yes, they fold them fresh on the spot.

Other stalls include: LIHO Bubble Tea, your reliable Old Chang Kee, GoPizza, Ippudo Express and Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice (a brand I haven’t seen in ages).

And if you’re still not convinced that this is the best airport in the world when it comes to food, these guys are open 24/7.
