food court


An air-conditioned area where food is sold, usually located in shopping malls.


  • Originated fron the english term food court.
  • In 1985, Singapore’s first food court, “Picnic Food Court” opened at Scotts Shopping Centre. It provided shoppers with affordable cooked food in a pleasant environment and was very popular. Subsequently, more food courts opened in other areas.
  • Most food courts are situated within larger shopping centres or commercial buildings and are mainly self-service.


The food court injected a hint of Nanyang nostalgia in its decor by using traditional chairs and tables, antique furnishings, old posters and old toys and games from the period, so patrons can relive the good old days. (Lianhe Zaobao, 25/11/2017)
