Don't worry, this next eatery isn't located that far away ? Just like the rest of the surrounding medieval inspired buildings, Goldilocks adopts the castle theme that's synonymous with the highly popular movie, Shrek. Even the interior of the building has been designed to faithfully replicate what must have been the communal dining space back then.
Munch on their homemade seven-spice fried chicken, served with a side of criss-cut fries or tater tots. Don't forget to complete your meal with a tub of mashed potatoes or soft bun!
There's even a Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream section in the corner, which basically counts as dessert, right? ?

Located a stone's throw away from Goldilocks, Friar's Good Food is housed in a similar medieval themed building. Friar's is also one of the most reasonably priced halal eateries in the park (meals start at around SGD9), so you can spend the extra cash on character merchandise instead!
Serving up a variety of fusion and Western cuisine, Friar's perfectly battered fish and chips is definitely worth a try! This value for money meal also comes with a generous helping of fries ?

Booking our tickets in advance on Klook helped us to save time as we didn’t have to join the crazy queues. This gave us more time to enjoy attractions like Universal Studios Singapore (USS), which was really crowded when we visited. Best of all, we managed to save as our USS ticket included meal and retail vouchers worth SGD5 each too!
Oh, and if you would like to have a unique breakfast experience alongside adorable Orangutans, get your Jungle Breakfast with Wildlife tickets on Klook to save SGD12! If you’re visiting Singapore Zoo, River Safari and/or Night Safari, we highly recommend that you get your tickets on Klook to avoid long ticketing queues as these wildlife parks are among the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore.
Do remember to read the description of your bookings carefully as we didn’t know that we had to redeem the physical tickets for our Jungle Breakfast at the Ticketing Counters 1 and 2 or the self-printing kiosks (beside Membership Services). Thankfully, the staff at the restaurant was able to help us out!
