3 Cheap Dining Options at Changi Airport, Singapore

Airports are usually very well known for the high prices of food or drinks. The price of food or drinks at the airport is expensive. Because the price of renting space at the airport is expensive. How come? Because the location inside the airport is a prime location with a high target market. The people at the airport are usually people with business interests. As well as people who are on vacation and ready to use the money. And usually, even though the price is expensive, if you are stuck, you don’t want the customer to pay.

Cheap Alternative Places to Eat

Singapore has a different image. If you say to eat at the Hawker Center, the prices there are quite cheap. But if you want to find quality food or coffee at cafes/coffee shops and especially in restaurants. The price can be higher than cafes in Australia. If so, does that mean that if you want to eat at Changi Airport in Singapore, you will have to pay a high price too? Hey … don’t immediately play assumptions. It turns out that the prices of food and drinks at several spots at Changi Airport are much cheaper. Than Ngurah Rai airport in Bali (especially in the international departure terminal area).

Some time ago we had a long transit at Changi Airport. About 7 hours before we had to go to the gate. Because we were lazy to leave the airport. We ended up spending time crunching the airport to several terminals and had time to eat at 3 places. In our opinion, these three places are arguably very affordable and cheap for the price at the airport. Indeed, not all places to eat at Changi Airport are cheap, so if the price is a consideration. You have to be smart in finding places to eat.

Here we share 3 choices of cheap places to eat at Singapore Changi Airport:

1. Staff Canteen

Location: Terminal 2, land-side

There has been a lot of information circulating that the staff canteen is a “secret place”. Where we can enjoy cheap food at Singapore Changi Airport. There is nothing secret about this place because this place is open to the public. Open daily from 6 a.m to 10 p.m. There is more than one location (possibly in each terminal). Only this time we had time to stop by the Staff Canteen in the parking building of Terminal 2. Lift to Staff Canteen Changi
How to get to Staff Canteen Terminal 2 Changi Airport:

How to get to Staff Canteen Terminal 2 Changi Airport:

  • Benchmarks from the front of McDonald’s inside the arrival Terminal 2 building.
  • from there turn left towards the exit leading to the parking deck
  • Inside the parking building, walk a little to the left until you find an elevator (number 7). On the right, there is a row of elevators. But if you go up, it can only reach the 3rd floor. While the staff canteen is on the 3M floor.
  • take elevator number 7 to get to the 3M floor
  • there is an inscription “Staff Canteen by Kopitiam”

There you will see a row of machines with the words top-up kiosk. Don’t panic. If you don’t have a card, you can still pay using cash. At first, we wanted to buy a card (2 SGD) to top it up. But the person next door said we didn’t need to buy a card, just pay cash. OK.

Is it true that food and drinks are cheap? We had time to eat ‘noodle with chicken meatball’ (HALAL) and a cup of Hainanese milk coffee. Chicken meatball noodles cost S $5.00 while a cup of Hainanese coffee is only S $0.90. For meals, it can be S $3.00 or S $4.00 for a plate of rice with vegetables. You say it’s cheap, it’s pretty cheap, but it’s back again depending on the menu. There are also prices around S $7-9.

2. Food Emporium

Location: Terminal 4, land-side

Because the terminal is still new, the food court also feels new. Clean, bright, modern design and quite a lot of food choices. To go to the Food Emporium. Go from the departure area to the right until you find an escalator that is tilted. As soon as you go up the escalator at the end you will see the words Food Emporium.

Here we ate BBQ beef rice (S $5.50), Hainanese style coffee milk (S $1.30), and ice honey lemon (S $2.00). Pay directly at the respective counters. It is still very cheap compared to prices at other airports.

3. Food Gallery

Location: Terminal 1, water-side

This last spot is inside Terminal 1, after passing through immigration. The food court does look a bit old and not too big. But still not bad, there are several choices of heavy meals at affordable prices. Pay directly to the respective counters.

We ate from the counter of Kedai Kiliney Kopi: iced tea with hot milk coffee. And rich toast and butter-rich toast. The total is S $9.40 for 2 people. It’s pretty filling!

Even so, most restaurants still use the same concept. There are still a few unique restaurant concepts that are present in Jakarta, even though in other parts of the world some people already use it.

Food Adventures

Intrigued by the restaurant concepts that we mean? Find out in the following article!

Floating Restaurant

Eating at a restaurant on the rooftop of a Jakarta skyscraper, such as Altitude, SKYE, or Henshin Restaurant is certainly a unique experience in itself. Seeing the view of the city of Jakarta from a height is one more value than eating on a rooftop.

But, have you ever imagined eating food at a table floating above the ground? Fungroup introduced a concept called Dinner in The Sky Genuine. In fact, more than 65 countries on 5 continents use this concept.

Usually, nearby buildings that are landmarks of a city is the hot location for this restaurant. Of course, it will be a unique experience to eat while relaxing around Monas with this concept.

Ice Restaurant

As Indonesian citizens, of course, living in extremely cold weather is unusual. Let alone living and struggle in cold weather for a long time, even in fairly cold weather, as a result of the rain, many of us immediately fell ill.

Even so, in a desert country like the United Arab Emirates, a frozen room could be a restaurant. This restaurant called Chillout Lounge looks like a typical Inuit house. Of course, it takes a very thick jacket, gloves, and even special shoes designed to withstand the cold of the room.

Don’t worry about freezing in the room, you will get a hot drink as one of the complimentary.

Bird’s Nest Restaurant

Bird’s nest is a place to eat? Of course, we are not referring to small bird nests, but artificial bird nests that can accommodate several adults in it.

This unique restaurant concept was first present in Thailand, to be precise at Soneva Kiri Resort. This concept is very similar to a bird’s nest, where there is wood woven in such a way that it becomes a solid place in a large tree. Usually, a restaurant like this is in the middle of a forest which has a stunning view.

If you have a restaurant with this concept in a Jakarta city park, it will certainly increase the public’s desire to come to visit city parks.

Underwater Restaurant

Eating in the middle of a mall or office is a common thing to find in Jakarta. However, what if you enjoy your meal while looking at the various marine animals passing around you?

A restaurant in the Maldives named Ithaa is so global with this one concept. The sensation of eating at a depth of 5 meters below sea level while accompanied by marine life will certainly be a unique experience that you will not be able to easily forget.

In Bali, a restaurant with this concept already available by November 2019. If this concept can be presented in Ancol, it will certainly be a booster for tourism in the northern area of ​​Jakarta.

Earthquake Restaurant

Have you ever felt an earthquake with a strength of up to 7.8 on the Richter scale? Especially when you are enjoying lunch or dinner at a restaurant. It will certainly cause tremendous panic.

Spain has a restaurant that uses this unique theme. Instead of being abandoned by this strange concept, visitors are willing to queue to feel the sensation of eating in the middle of an earthquake with this sizeable strength.

If it can be present in Indonesia, this unique restaurant concept will certainly be a learning place for people in Indonesia which are known to be prone to earthquakes.

Children’s Restaurant

Have a child who dreams of becoming a great chef in the future? Or want to teach your children to get to know the kitchen and its contents from an early age? This unique restaurant concept is perfect to be presented in Jakarta.

Kinderkookkafe in Amsterdam, the Netherlands is one of the restaurants famous for this concept. In this restaurant, all restaurant operations will be carried out by children aged 5-12 years. Starting from being a Chef, Cashier, to Waiter can be done at this restaurant. Of course, there is supervision from adults so that things that are not desirable happen.

There is nothing wrong with teaching children from an early age to reach their dreams in the future through a restaurant.

Robot Restaurant

In an age where technology is increasingly developing, the presence of robots in our daily lives cannot be avoided anymore. It is not impossible in the next few years human work is already done by robots. One proof that robots are able to replace the role of humans can be seen in restaurants that embrace the concept of a restaurant robot.

Various countries have used this concept. There are robots in charge of greeting and taking orders, some are cooking, some are even in charge of entertaining guests by dancing.

If all of these robots can be put together in one restaurant, it will certainly make humans in the future really lose their jobs. However, of course, it will be a unique experience to enjoy the food served by the robot.

Conflict Restaurant

We certainly know that in past Indonesia was a colony of the Portuguese, Dutch, British and Japanese. What if all the specialties of that country were present in one restaurant?

A tavern in the United States introduced this concept. Conflict Kitchen only serves food originating from countries that have experienced conflicts in the United States, such as Palestine and Iraq.

If a restaurant in Jakarta is able to present sushi, poffertjes, Caldo Verde, and fish and chips in one place, it will certainly make it easier for us to find a restaurant that suits our taste.

Naked Sushi

You can find various types of sushi restaurants in Jakarta, from luxurious to cheap but you can easily get a winning taste in all corners of Jakarta. But, have you ever imagined eating sushi served on the human body?

In Japan, there are several restaurants that serve sushi on a human body, on top of a woman who is not wearing clothes. This naked sushi concept is crazy. Even though the woman’s body has sushi on top, there are several rules that must be obeyed. Speaking, touching, and doing indecently to models is the prohibition. If the quest disobeys the rule, there will be a penalty.

Maybe this concept is quite vulgar and many parties will oppose it. But, of course, it would be unique if there were restaurants in Jakarta that dared to use this concept.

So, among the 9 restaurant concepts above, which one makes you the most curious?

“We are now only defending so that employees can still work,” he added.

The COVID-19 pandemic caused sales to drop dramatically, buyers unmitigatedly decreased by more than 60 percent. However, even though the profits were insignificant they still open their stalls and manage a strategy. About 400 employees in all branches are working in shifts. According to him, this solution is the best rather than having to terminate employment (layoffs).

“For example, in one shop there are 20 employees who work only 10 of them take turns,” he said.

They also have to do it to convince buyers that their stalls are safe from COVID-19. Employees must wear masks and always have their body temperature measured before starting work. Meanwhile, even though there are not many buyers at their stalls. Buyers must keep their distance by sitting on the available spot.

Rely on Gudeg Cans

Eni also faced a dilemma at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. He has to choose two options to keep opening the shop with minimal income. Or closing the shop at the expense of his employees.

“If we close, we will continue to feel sorry for the employees. Even if we open, we have to pay employees while the income drops drastically,” said Eni.

The Beginning of Canned Gudeg

He then took various ways. The canned gudeg product that has been produced so far was intensified again to get income. He has promoted through various media. Also took advantage of the food delivery service. This was quite helpful to keep earning income, he stated. Even though sales were not as busy as before the pandemic.

Eni seemed a little grateful entered mid-June 2020, he said there had been a slight increase. This is none other than the aftermath of government policy. That began to loosen residents to do activities outside the home. But as a consequence, stalls also have to implement strict health protocols.

He must prepare masks and face shields for employees as well as hand sanitizer. “Indeed, we have to spend a lot, but we can’t increase the price of [food],” he said.

3 Tips for Creating Effective Logistics Strategies

Understanding the importance of a good logistics strategy is one thing; putting plans into action is another. To assist in the creation of strategies, here are three ways some manufacturers strengthen their logistics organizations and improve services. Three strategies for creating effective logistics strategies such as:


One way to create an effective logistics strategy is to always connect with suppliers, partners and companies. Digital transformation enables manufacturers to design logistical strategies that connect them with suppliers, partners and companies wherever they are. Whether in cities or around the world. And it makes a difference in several ways:


Forming closer relationships with suppliers and partners helps in the planning process, increasing sourcing, managing supplier risks. And increasing cooperation to support long-term plans for company growth, innovation, and sustainability.


Producers no longer only react to logistical disruptions – they can anticipate them, create network models. Make scenarios of what will happen and make adjustments as conditions change.


With direct access to data, producers get a clear understanding of how well they handle operations. With metrics related to speed, inventory, and finance.

Smart Factory

One way to create effective logistics strategies is to implement smart manufacturing. Smart manufacturing is about using real-time data. And technology anytime and anywhere that people and machines need the most – and in the forms they need. The technology that makes waves in logistics is smart sensors.

Equipped with GPS, smart sensors will track the location of assets, vehicles, inventory, and even workers. Manufacturers now use smart sensor data to see at what point delivery locations, fleet trucking locations, and much more. Data also helps predict and confirm when assets arrive and when they leave warehouses, distribution centers, and retail stores.

Notification that an asset is not in its place should also alert producers to potential problems. Or even theft in the supply chain. This can facilitate the company

Lean Manufacturing

One way to create an effective logistics strategy is to use lean manufacturing. Lean manufacturing is not only profitable because it streamlines production operations. But it is also profitable because it streamlines warehouse and fleet operations. Considering the cost of the product is largely dependent on the factor of transportation and storage costs in the warehouse. If we can make efficiency of these factors, the company’s profits will be increased. For example, a common problem that often occurs in operational processes is the length of time required for shipping goods. The lean manufacturing method will ensure that the storage system of goods in the warehouse becomes easier to track goods. Speed up shipping and build better communication between warehouse employees.

Outside the warehouse, lean manufacturing may involve finding more efficient routes for the factory fleet. Tracking unscheduled stops or rounds from drivers, or simplifying the flow of traffic in and out of company facilities.

The logistics strategy that is successfully implemented becomes very important for companies. That is dedicated to maintaining service levels at the highest level despite changes in the supply chain. Remember, the ultimate goal of any logistics strategy is to deliver the right product to customers. With the right quality, at the right price, at the right time. In the right place by spending as little money as possible.

By reviewing logistics organizations, and creating or reconfiguring logistical strategies. Companies will be able to better meet the demands of customers and end-users of products that are always changing.
