TripleOne Somerset, which the taxi uncles still like to call PUB or Singapore Power Building, is just across the Somerset MRT and offers some different dining experiences.

I go there often to grab my groceries from FairPrice Finest, some bread from Imperial Treasure Bakery, or meet up with friends over a meal at its restaurants. If you want to need somewhere relatively quieter from the buzz of town, or restaurants which can hold up large groups of people, TripleOne is just minutes’ walk away from Orchard.

What I like about it is that it offers some eating places that are not exactly the same cookie-cutters available elsewhere, such as Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar, Brill, Fukuichi Japanese Dining, Windows of Hong Kong, and Coffee & Toast, Daruma Ramen House, Imperial Treasure Steamboat Restaurant and Togi Korean Restaurant.

Here are 5 Restaurants to check out when you are at TripleOne Somerset.

Togi Korean Restaurant #02-15, Tel: +65 6737 7397
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 3:00pm, 6:00pm-9:30pm Daily

Quite surprised to find a modern-looking Korean restaurant on the 2nd storey of TripleOme. I didn’t know! It is the same Togi that is available at Mosque Street, though this is a bigger place with both indoor and outdoor sittings. Plus really high ceilings, so you won’t exactly smell. Opened by Koreans, you can be assured of some form of authenticity in its cuisine. My recommendation is the Maeoon Samgyupsal ($18), 200 grams of fiery and well-marinated Spicy Pork Belly.

Imperial Treasure Steamboat Restaurant #01-21 TO 23 Tel: +65 6732 8231
Opening hours: 11am to 3pm, 6.00pm to 3am Daily

Imperial Treasure has always been satisfaction-guarantee with its chain of restaurants. The Steamboat Restaurant specialises in serving Chinese steamboat, offering both ala carte and set menus, and dim sum during lunch. This is quite a classy steamboat restaurant compared to those you have seen elsewhere, and do expect to pay a premium for it. There is really a wide range of soups you can choose from. Other than the usual Sichuan spicy and healthy chicken soup, the other specialties include satay flavour, seaweeds & kelp, century egg & parsley, drunken chicken with ginseng soups. Its 16 additional condiments should also excite you. (Read: Imperial Treasure Steamboat Restaurant)

Fukuichi Japanese Dining #02-11/12 Tel: +65 6271 5586 / 6472 8269
Opening hours: 11.30am-3pm, 5.30pm-12am Daily

This is perhaps another hidden find, a 4000 square feet Japanese dining restaurant with an indoor sushi bar and outdoor sake wine bar. Fukuichi’s lunch sets at an affordable $16-$20 are pretty popular with the corporate crowd. Some of the more popular offerings include an assorted raw fish set of Sashimi Teishoku ($20), Sushi Teishoku, Grilled Chicken with Teriyaki Sauce Kijiyaki set ($16) and Grilled Mackerel Set ($18). The chef will also whip up an occasional creative dish such as almond tempura prawns, so check with the staff for recommendations.

Imperial Treasure Windows of Hong Kong #01-K1/24/25 Tel: +65 6732 8798
Opening Hours: 8am-9pm (Mon-Thurs), 8am-9.15pm (Fri), 10am-9.15pm (Sat & PH), 10am-9pm (Sun)

Windows of Hong Kong would be what I call a corporate canteen, a huge space with a very strange ordering system. There was a big board with specific set menus from A1-A6, with varied combinations for soup/drink changes and upgrades. With all that said, the food was all worth it. It felt real, unlike some cafes which tried hard to pass off local food as Hong Kong. The wanton and beef brisket noodles spelled authenticity, with springy waxy yellow noodles, matched with an ‘I could eat it on its own’ chilli sauce. The brisket was tenderising soft, and broth bursting with flavours of bones and shrimps.(Read: Imperial Treasures Windows of Hong Kong)

Daruma Ramen House #02-15 Tel: +65 6235 6079
Opening Hours: 12pm-3pm (last order 2.30pm), 6pm-10pm (last order 9:30pm)

New ramen shop Daruma Ramen House is actually not from Japan, but first set up in Hong Kong, re-created and updated by proprietor Charlie Chan. Before you feel too suspicious about its quality, Daruma is named one of the top 5 ramen restaurants in Hong Kong by Tatler. There is no fuss to Daruma’s menu: just three choices of Shoyu, Spicy and Tonkotsu. If in doubt, go for the Tonkotsu with braised pork belly, barbecued pork and mentaiko combination ($18). The broth is said to be cooked by boiling over 90 kilograms of premium pork bones imported from Holland for 8-10 hours every day. (Read: Daruma Ramen House)
