In Singapore, there are many food court chains. But none really does it like Food Republic. So any food court can bring in the tastiest of vendors but Food Republic incorporated the element of ambience to give their patrons a better dining experience.
Their Wisma Atria compound had a old school kampong style decor, with all the wooden fixtures to the individual stalls and wooden tables and benches instead of your normal plastic ones. The ION@Orchard outlet called Food Opera had commissioned art installations, chandeliers and acrylic chairs.
Food Republic Beer Garden @ St James Powerstation is their newest installation. The decor this time is rustic and nostalgic. Everything from the lorry-turn-stalls to the flowery print sam-fu the staff puts on exudes an element of nostalgia.
Food Republic Beer Garden brings together a comprehensive mix of hawker fare. There are your usually suspects like Fried Hokkien Noodles, Bah Ku Teh, Murtabak, Bak Chor Mee and Barbeque Chicken Wings to name a few. Knowing Food Republic, the food they sell there is of standard and quality. There’s also a stall that sells a range of beer and liquor too! Some of the stalls are well known names among the hawker circle – There’s Balestier Bah Ku Teh, Lorong 9 Geylang Frog Leg Porridge and Boon Tat Street BBQ Seafood to name a few.
The place operates only after the sky darkens and closes after the 6, perfect place for those weird midnight cravings for Tu Tu Kuehs or Bak Chor Mee. There’s also a live band that plays there on the stage as well. But because the place only offers Alfresco sittings, you’ll run into a problem if the weather turns ugly. Nevertheless, the ambient and the novelty of eating here would definitely warrant a try if you are around the vicinity.
Food Republic Beer Garden is located at

3 Sentosa Gateway.
