Neighbourhood shopping malls are like white bread. They get the job done in a pinch, but they’re not exactly the most interesting thing in the world. When you think of interesting, you think of thrilling theme parks, loud arcades, and restaurants with food that keeps you coming back. You want to experience this every day, and you want to live there.

While you can’t really be in all of these places at once, KINEX may just be the next best thing.

There is also a food hall in the basement, with some of the more popular stalls being Two Wings’ chilli crab wings, MFC’s fried snacks and waffles, and R&B bubble tea.
