Fretting over where to have your lunch on a workday? Here are some places that are not only in the vicinity of good food, but also offer free parking!

12 Feb 2019


For each free parking place, I've provided budget makan options and the more pricey ones too for variety. All timings are from Monday to Friday (unless otherwise stated).

Do note that not all these makan places are located directly at the parking spots, some are located at a relatively short distance away. I've grouped all the places according to their North, South, East and West locations for convenience.

Unless you're fortunate enough to have more than the usual 60 minute lunch hour as in ONE hour, singular, Uno, Eins, Ichi, Yi. Utilise this one hour to the max!
