The look of these halal foodcourts, all run by Kopitiam, ranges from no-frills coffee shop to classy contemporary. Generally, Cantine foodcourts are the best-looking, Bagus ones are utilitarian, and the sole Sedap foodcourt is scheduled for a makeover.

Like other Kopitiam foodcourts, the selection of stalls is canny. There is a wide array of food - Korean, Japanese, Italian with a local spin, mala xiang guo and vegan, among others. All the local favourites, such as ban mian, chicken rice, nasi padang and carrot cake, are represented.
