The hype is real: Northshore Plaza, our first seafront heartland mall, has made its debut.
“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 eateries with myriad cuisines and a number of exciting things to do. It’s split into two buildings, so look out for Plaza II coming in 2022. Meanwhile, here’s the lowdown on Plaza I…

Looking for a meat-free paradise? Grove is a Japanese-Western cafe with a cosy, nature-influenced ambience. Try plant-based dishes like chicken rendang with blue pea nasi lemak, truffle la mian and local classics like chwee kueh. It’s also perfect for delish puffs and baos if you’re into light bites.

2. Nom Nom
Korea meets Mexico at this newly-opened cafe. Try flavourful burritos and rice bowls or go for the cilantro lime rice with jerk chicken. If you’re watching what you eat, there are healthier options like salad bowls with toppings such as pickled carrots, guacamole, corn and seaweed so you don’t have to worry about going overboard.
