Welcome to Cosford Container Park, Changi’s buzzing new food and beverage destination tucked right beside the airport runway.

Comprising 15 unique dining concepts housed in retrofitted shipping containers, this vibrant new fixture promises a laidback, spacious atmosphere to wine and dine without downtown crowds. Visitors can not only soak in unrivalled views of planes taking off mere metres away but also savour an array of drool-worthy fare spanning comforting local favourites to artisanal sweet treats.

A mere 10-minute scenic stroll from Changi Village and a stone’s throw away from Changi Beach, the bustling container enclave brings together homegrown names like Old Chang Kee and Eat The Chicken alongside gourmet ice cream purveyors and artisanal bakeries. Plans for stage performances and live busking are also underway to enhance the lively atmosphere on weekends.

For something sweet, Fluff Bakery serves up ethereal light-as-air Japanese souffle pancakes in creative flavours like matcha and oreo to satisfy any cravings. Or sample small-batch artisanal ice cream from Passion Culinaire, whose interesting flavours include aromatic pulut hitam, Thai milk tea, and yuzu.

Wash it all down with fruit-infused teas, smoothies, and milkshakes like Bandung, honey lime soda, and even creamy, delicate brown sugar pearl milk drinks from Hi Tea. Or opt for something more refreshing like craft ales, ciders, and cocktails from the rooftop bar overhead.

Perched on a mezzanine on the second floor atop shipping containers, School of Cambridge‘s laidback open-air watering hole provides a tipsy perch to take in unrivalled views of aircrafts gliding across cotton-candy skies upon descent into Changi Airport merely meters away. Visitors can sip on refreshing ciders, Brooklyn lager or local craft beers like Lion City Meadery’s “Noise” Brown Ale, fruity cocktails, or even boozy milkshakes against this unbeatable aviation backdrop from 5 pm to 1 am nightly.
