The hype is real: Northshore Plaza, our first seafront heartland mall, has debuted with plenty of good food and cool shops.
“Northshore” where to go? Punggol’s newest mall might just be it. Northshore Plaza, perfectly situated in the heart of the family-friendly ‘hood, boasts unique food spots with myriad cuisines, all kinds of shops, and a number of exciting things to do. It’s split into two buildings, and with the completion of Northshore Plaza II, this behemoth of a mall is finally open to the public. Here’s our breakdown of what to do…

2. Slappy Cakes
We love a good all-day breakfast, so imagine our excitement when we found out Slappy Cakes was opening an outlet right here in sunny Singapore. Tuck into hearty mains like the classic breakfast that basically has everything but the kitchen sink – bacon, scrambled eggs, sausages, and more. Of course, we can’t forget its signature DIY pancakes. Think of it like breakfast Korean BBQ. Pick your batter flavour and toppings, and you can start creating your pancake masterpieces. Perfect for families looking for something special to do with the kids. And big plus, you won’t need to clean up!
