Reviews of good food at Food Republic (Wisma Atria)

Expect new stalls such as Aher Soup, Guan Chee Roast, Ali Shan Curry Rice and The Original Katong Laksa to delight your tastebuds and be spoilt for choice with the wide selection of food, notwithstanding the many other new and existing tenants nestled in the food court.

One such stall that absolutely stole the show and hit a home run was Aher Soup, who also operates at ABC Brickworks Market and that particular stall was a recipient of the Michelin Bib Gourmand 2017. No matter the time of the day, a bowl of double-boiled Chinese herbal soup works wonder and this does not disappoint at all. The signature soup is the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall, which contains premium ingredients such as abalone, scallop, dried oyster, fish maw, mushroom and an entire chicken leg, simmered for over three to four hours resulting in a rich collagen broth bursting with textures and flavours. If you are here for a meal, never leave this place without having a bowl of comforting soup.

The prawn paste and the fish dumplings are made by hand so you know it's gonna be very good. Fish dumplings were so juicy and bouncy, and the fish skin particularly stood out with its excellent texture. The prawn paste did not disappoint as well, similarly having an excellent bouncy and chunky texture and the prawn taste jumps out immediately. Unfortunately you can't mix them so you have to order them separately

An average vinegar base but the toppings were decent. Toothsome fish maw cooked perfectly, egg with molten yolk and the dumpling was filled with pure meat, making it hefty and plump

Doesn't seem very value for money actually. Soups pretty good with a distinct prawn taste and mee Kia was cooked to al dente perfection as well. Quite like the sweet soy sauce but the wantons themselves were, while good with nice chunks of prawn, not spectacular.

Paper thin skin and so much flavour, this might not be super juicy but the char and the smoky aroma more than makes up for it

Presenting the recipient of the Michelin Bib Gourmand 2017, Ah Er Soup makes its way from Jurong Leisure Complex and ABC Brickworks Food Centre into Food Republic at Wisma Atria with their tasty and nutritious soups.

The hot favourite during the #burppleeatup was certainly this bowl of Buddha Jumps Over The Wall (S$9.00). With premium ingredients such as scallop, dried oyster, fish maw, abalone, chicken and mushrooms simmered in a rich collagen broth with traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, this bowl is evidently rich and delicious.

If you are as much of a Cantonese as I am, then this is something you shouldn’t miss. Other types of double-boiled soups are also available from S$5.00 onwards, which is considered affordable in the downtown district.

Heard it's very traditional and they brought it over from HK but I personally am not a fan of these kinds of herbal and sweet broths lol the beef and tendon were rather tender though

Like mixed veg rice so the price would depend on what you choose but I really enjoyed the curry and found it very flavourful and thick

Apparently pineapple is the only drinkable fruit tea with 0% sugar since it isn't bitter or overly acidic like the others. It's more like a fruit infused water but with tea since the fruit taste isn't very strong

Skin was a little dried up here so try to get the drumstick which has an amazingly thin and crunchy skin. Probably my first time trying it and I loved it to bits. Also the price point is rather affordable considering the amount of effort that went into this dish. The danggui duck was spectacular as well and it's basically Dian xiao er's version at like half the price?

Perfect solution to midweek blues! Thanks to @burpple and @foodrepublicsg , Burpplers got to do a food tasting at the newly revamped @wismaatria Food Republic.

Some familiar and many new stalls, Food Republic Wisma is here to change your view on foodcourts. A nanyang 70-80s feel, many local and overseas highlights are available!

Totally a steal and so tasty for orchard dining. Highlights include Aher double boiled soup ($5.50-9), Ayam Penyet ($5.90 promo, $6.80 otherwise), and fruitea (juice bar, $4.60-5.80). I’m excited to have some cheap and amazing food at orchard! Will be back to try the other stalls too. More details on highlighted dishes in later posts 😉

... and “penyet” means smash in Malay.

The Ayam Penyet that was prepared by Penyet & BBQ stall in Food Republic deserves a special mention for their crispy coat of batter on the outside, yet tender chicken meat on the inside. The smashing process also helped the meat to be more tenderised, so fried chicken lovers will give their two thumbs up for it.

While the rice may cake up sometimes like a Ketupat, I felt that the chilli sauce that accompanies the fried chicken enhances the taste quite a fair bit, because the sauces and chilli sambal are all homemade. The conservative can order an Ayam Penyet Set, while those who loves a spicy kick to the meal can take on the Ayam Balado Set (Fried Chicken with Red Chilli) or Ayam Hijau Set (Fried Chicken with Green Chilli), all three priced at S$6.80 and comes with a portion of rice and a bowl of soup.


Janggut Laksa (S$7.50 for Large) was said to be the real Original Katong Laksa that had made its name in the 1940s, and that was also where the short hand-cut noodles came about. So, the right way to enjoy this yummilicious noodles is to eat with the spoon only.

Not only that, they still insist on using fresh coconut milk instead of the common packeted coconut cream, so the gravy becomes a little more watery, but the “umami” from the seafood soup base stands out. I found myself slurping the whole bowl of gravy shamelessly, but that’s how flavourful the dish was anyway.

The Janggut Laksa comes from The Original Katong Laksa kiosk in Food Republic.


BBQ Pork Ribs are seldom found in the hawker centre scene, for the sheer reason that it usually takes a lot of effort to slow-cook the ribs and prepare the dish. However, in the newly-renovated Food Republic at Wisma Atria, 1 Feast Western stall sells the BBQ Pork Ribs at an affordable price of S$5.90. The meat is tender and not chewy (thanks to slow-cooking), and the BBQ sauce that is glazed over the meat is not strong, so it does not blanket over the original taste of the meat.

There is also a choice of side orders to be included, as the price above only covers the ribs. Give it an additional S$2.70 for 2 side dishes. I thought the coleslaw was quite nice actually.


Everyone in Singapore knows all about Katong laksa and all their imitators (the original is on the ground floor in Queensway Shopping Centre), but not many realize that Food Republic has made a determined drive to bring that laksa from the western side of Singapore to the more civilized side of the sunny nation state. As such, you can now enjoy the one and only original Katong laksa in the heart of Orchard Road.

There is virtually no difference in the quality and sumptuousness of the laksa despite the difference in location. The milky, velvety and simply sapid gravy that the small shrimps, thick bee hoon, cockles and fishcake are bathed in is luscious and lip-smackingly delicious. The only issue I had was with the less than fresh shrimp, but I simply disregarded the shrimp and devoured the rest of the laksa.

Lipsmacking, luscious laksa in the heart of atas ol’ Orchard Road. Only at Wisma Atria Food Republic.
