Container Bistros: 7 New Places To Chill at Tebing Lane Punggol

The popular and always packed Tebing Lane at Punggol is going to be even more happening with the opening of seven new eateries housed in these hip and cool containers. There’s Korean desserts, craft beer, good fish dishes, booze and even healthy desserts.

We went to take a look at these container bistros this afternoon and here’s what we saw. It was posted on Punggol 21 Facebook page that these will be opening tomorrow, 1 Feb, but from the looks of things, not all of the 7 bistros are ready for business. Anyone planning to check them out?

DGrill

Here’s a menu we found outside DGrill. Serving pasta on hot plates, fried finger food, some desserts and drinks. Price looks reasonable. There is no indoor seating, all tables and chairs are alfresco. Huge cooler fans were spotted around the seating area outdoor.

L’Chaim Bistro

This is where you can find craft beer and probably finger food as well. Spotted a couple of tables and a bar counter with bar stools inside. Probably can house 6 to 8 pax in the air-conditioned container. Outdoor seatings available.

Seoul Good dessert and coffee

About seven tables available indoor and the decorations are quite cute too. Wonder if they’ll be selling Instagram-worthy and yummy bingsu.

Big Fish Small Fish

Indoor and outdoor seatings sighted and this is their menu :


I would say the food is reasonably priced. We waited for approximately 20mins for our food but we were served free chips while waiting. Better yet, their friendly service crew went round checking if we would like the chips to be refilled.

Pump Station 1965 Bar & Bistro

One of the most elaborated setup amongst the new container bistros at Tebing Lane. The have got 3 section with very nice tables and chairs.

If anyone is going to tell us Punggol is so ulu, we’re so going to show these to them! These new container bistros are located at Tebing Lane, right next to Riveria LRT. There will also be a new open-air carpark right behind these bitros for those driving.

Fun Activities at Waterway Point this March School Holiday!

You know right? We Punggol Babies have been visiting Waterway Point (WWP in short ok) almost every day since it’s opening! Just because it’s so easy and near to our homes. But come the March school holidays, we are going to be there EVERY DAY (if we can) because there’s this super fun thing happening at our favourite neighbourhood mall!

This is the new edition of Play It Forward (With a Twist!). Children will have the opportunity to prolong their Play it Forward experience with a fun five-station obstacle course before diving into the ball pool which spans 8m by 8m and is filled with 100,00 colourful balls. The obstacle course includes fun elements like Walk a Plank, Tunnel Crawl, Foam Stick Curtain Trail and Float Run.

Frasers Centrepoint Malls will match all proceeds dollar-for-dollar up to S$30,000.

Punggol is Getting Better with SAFRA Clubhouse Opening 24 April 2016!

When you think that life in Punggol is finally getting way more exciting with the opening of Waterway Point this month, then you’ll be screaming for more more more when you get to finally visit SAFRA Clubhouse at Punggol come 24 April 2016!

Previously I shared about the first mega indoor water playground, Splash! @ Kids Amaze at Punggol SAFRA and got many of you excited. Now here’s what you can look out for at Punggol SAFRA.

Activities at Punggol SAFRA Clubhouse

Makan Time!

There’ll be fast food outlets, Chinese restaurant, and I’m guessing some established F&B brands too.

Sing… Sing a song, sing out loud, sing out strong!

I’m guessing Kbox or Party World will be the tenant over at SAFRA Punggol. Though I wish it was Teo Heng but they’ve already got one outlet at Ci Yuan Community Centre which is pretty nearby.

Rent a bike or rollerblade

For the first time at SAFRA, you can look at renting bicycles and rollerblades. Wonder if they’ll be bringing in those family cycle that sits four pax. What are these bikes known as, anyone know?

Bowling at Punggol!

Get your bowling balls ready for a rolling good time right within 1 minute walk from Sam Kee LRT station. Much more convenient I feel as compared to the other SAFRA clubhouses I’ve been to.

Preschool by NurtureStars and Enrichment Classes

For parents who swore by good enrichment classes for your little ones, this is the place to go check out when they open. With so many young families living around Punggol, I’m expecting classes to be filled up fast.

Biggest Gym in Punggol

Drop your kids off to class and head into the gym to get some fats burned and heart pumping. Perhaps this is the time to sign-up for their gym membership for everyone at home, all of us need some (actually a lot) of toning and trimming.

Water Sports 

This is yet to be confirmed, but the folks at SAFRA is exploring it for sure. Would be nice if we can send our kids for some water sports fun when they’re older. Punggol Babies still young for these right now.

For now, we’re happy with SPLASH! @ Kids Amaze. The 3-storey high indoor water playground. Waterplay is now possible rain or shine and we don’t have to worry about getting sun burnt!

My next big question is will there be a SAFRA swimming pool in the clubhouse? With SPLASH! and the Sengkang Swimming Complex nearby, will we have a pool at SAFRA Punggol? So far I can’t find any clue from their website nor media news. Anyone know?
