What’s For Lunch? The Foodie’s Guide To Guoco Midtown

SPECTRUM’s location in Bugis situates it squarely in the heart of Singapore’s Civic and Cultural District. Beyond that, the wide range of cafés and eateries in Bugis Junction and its vicinity means that you’ll never be at a loss for lunch options.

With the completion and launch of Guoco Midtown in January this year (sister building to the tallest skyscraper in Singapore – Guoco Tower), you now have even more options to consider for your next lunchtime meal. To make your decision process a little easier, here’s a quick guide to your lunchtime options in Guoco Midtown.
