Since its opening in mid-January 2016, the latest mall in the North-East region of Singapore, Punggol Waterway Point has attracted droves of people to the mall, currently the only mall in Punggol – no, we don’t consider Punggol Plaza as a legit shopping mall. With a strategic location beside Punggol MRT station, we simply have to make our way to the mall given that we reside in the North-East region as well. Other than the usual fashion brands to be opened soon like H&M and Uniqlo, we were more keen to suss out some of the restaurants/eateries we spotted during our tour.
Fancy burgers? How about one made in Singapore brand? With another outlet in Yishun, Burger Up is Singapore’s first fast food burger chain with ambitious growth plans. Choose to go along with the set meals, or you can always customise your own burger including the sauces you want.
Din Tai Fung
Almost every new mall has a Din Tai Fung these days, so it was no surprise when we spotted it alongside London Fat Duck. We can foresee some fierce competition between the two restaurants when they both open.
We thought the Froyo craze is over, but apparently not for LlaoIlao. As its first outlet at the tip of the North-East region of Singapore (fine, there is one at Hougang Mall too), we were not surprised to spot a long queue over the weekend while we walked past. Residents in the further North-East, you know where to get your froyo craving fix now.
London Fat Duck
London Fat Duck took the dining scene by storm when it debuted at Scotts Square, specialises in serving the ultra tender Irish ducks known as the Wagyu of ducks. Since then, the human traffic at the Scotts Square outlet hasn’t seem to stop and we can only imagine the soon-to-be-opened second outlet at Punggol Waterway Point to be as well-received, if not crazier.
Menya Musashi Kinko
For lovers of Japanese ramen, you can’t go very wrong with the Menya Musashi brand. We didn’t spot any other Japanese ramen restaurants in the mall, so this may well be your best bet for your ramen fix.
Rong Cheng Bak Kut Teh
This old brand name with its flagship stall in Sin Ming drive has opened at the basement of Waterway Point. Definitely a worthy option to satisfy your Bak Kut Teh craving.
The Rosti Farm
By the same guys behind Once Upon A Milkshake, we didn’t take much notice of The Rosti Farm on the basement of the mall, until we learnt about The Salted Eggnosaur. Yes, you heard it right. It’s salted-egg-anything these days, do not miss out trying this Waterway Point only exclusive item on the Rosti Farm menu if you profess to be a salted-egg fanatic! Swiss provolone cheeses, black angus beef patty, sauteed mushroom, egg overeasy and salted egg sauce.
Vietnamese cuisine has become popular in the past few years, with So Pho being one of the restaurants where you can have a taste of Vietnam. Priding itself as an authentic Vietnamese restaurant, we are also glad that it is a Halal-certified restaurant.
Uncle Leong Seafood
First started as a Neighbour seafood brand, Uncle Leong Seafood has branches in Ang Mo Kio, Toa Payoh, Jurong, Punggol, and lovers of this local seafood chain will be pleased to know that it has opened its latest outlet at the basement of the mall.
