I named this “Punggol East Container Park”, because none of the eatery owners know exactly what it is called. Perhaps they will come out with some fancy name soon.
There are 7 eateries found there, which include Pump Station 1965, Big Fish Small Fish, Seoul Good, L’Chaim Bistro, D’Grill, Leung Kee Healthy Dessert, and Boost @ Banks.
The good: Singapore is no longer as boring. We have new food places to venture to, with wonderful scenery and cycling lanes just a walk away.
The not-so-good: The area can get VERY hot during the noon. The sitting areas both inside some containers and outside (especially those without tentage) can get warm.
For those intending to descend for some #OOTD shots, a gentle note to wear more casual clothes. The blazing sun is merciless.
So what happens is that you order via self-service machines, get your food from the containers, and find somewhere to sit. (Some eateries are still in the soft-launch phase, without the entire menu. Also, going in the evening will ensure you more food, as they haven’t exactly decided what opening hours would be like.)
Here are the 7 NEW Container Eateries you can expect at Punggol East:
Big Fish Small Fish
A fish and chips specialty eatery. Choose a main such as Dory ($16.90), Yellow Fin ($7.90), Red Tilapia ($7.90), Sea Bass ($9.90), Salmon ($12.90) or Fresh Red Snapper ($15.90), include some add-ones such as home-made chips ($4.90), topped with a sauce.
Fresh fish (I had the sea bass), not too oily batter, with tasty sauces. The calamari was unfortunately soggy. Some of the chips in the same bag were crisp, some were not.
I was given the choice both the Salted Egg and XO sauce, though I would actually recommend the later which had mayo added for the creaminess with slight spiciness. The Salted Egg in the former sauce seemed kind of faint.
Pump Station Bar & Bistro
Pump Station Bar & Bistro, with more than 100 types of beverage include Featured beer, martinis, specialty drinks and wine.
Mains include Beef Pasta ($14.90), Smoked Duck Pasta ($14.90), Seafood pasta ($14.90), Gyoza Soup ($12.90) along with sides of Truffle Fries ($6.90), Satay ($5.90), Pump Chicken Wings ($12.90) and Potato Mochi ($10.90) and Hiroshima Oysters ($12.90).
Boost @ Banks
Leung Kee Healthy Dessert
Serves up Hong Kong style desserts.
Probably the most instagrammable café here, specializing in Korean style fried chicken and bingsu.
For fried chicken, there are 4 styles available – Seoul Good signature, Seoul Good Asian, Sesame Gochujiang, and Spicy Bulgogi. ($9.90 for 6 pieces, $12.90 for 8 pieces, $16.90 for 12 pieces).
The bingsu variety is somewhat more predictable with Injeolmi, Oreo Cookies, Patbingsu, Mixberry and Strawberry flavours ($14.90 – $18.90).
L’Chaim would refer to ”a toast used in drinking to a person’s health or well-being” in Hebrew. Hebrew? That is why I noted a ‘cross’ used in place of a ‘T’ in their signboard.
The menu is not quite the ordinary – home-style Peranakan food with a selection of craft beers. Hmm… when I asked for a menu, the co-owner commented that food would change from time to time.
Items offered at D’gill include Pasta on Hot Plate such as Spaghetti with Salmon Fish in Crab Meat Sauce ($12.90), Fish and Chips ($16.90), Deep Fried Chicken Wings ($9.90 for 6 pieces), and Deep Fried Cheese Fries ($6.90).
