It’s Food Friday here at YQ Travelling. Today, I will share where you can find the staff canteen at Changi Airport Terminal 1.
Usually, food at airport is expensive. However, among all the airports that I have been, Singapore’s Changi Airport has the relatively cheapest food.
If you don’t fancy fast food or restaurants at Changi Airport, I suggest visiting the staff canteen. Today, I will introduce the staff canteen at Terminal 1 because this is where I usually leave when I take AirAsia.
I find that the canteen can only be accessed from the second floor’s lift. Somehow, I could not find the elevator on the first floor.
Look for the toilet nearest to the AirAsia counter. Around the corner, there is a set of elevators to the basement. Head to Basement 1.
You will reach a large staff canteen such as this.
I find it surprising that many Indonesian tourists know of this relatively secret hideout for cheap eats. Every time I go, I see a table of tourists from Indonesians with their large luggage.
The food in the canteen is very similar to what you can find at normal hawker centers.
For example, this bowl of duck porridge is S$4. The same price as at the food court.

Have you been to the staff canteen at Changi Airport? Which is your favorite stall?
Do you want to quit your job to travel?
I did that in 2013 and I wrote a career break guidebook to help you do the same.
