Fave Five East Coast Lagoon

Great affordable chow with a breezy seaview, East Coast Lagoon Food Village is easily one of the best representations of local al fresco seaside dining – had our beach not been so peppered with ships that is.

The resort-like hawker centre, renovated with a $4 million makeover and done with Mediterranean-Club-Med-esqued touches is more popularly known for barbecued seafood and satay washed down with sugarcane juice, is a hit with almost all – families thanks to its many communal tables, lovers after a romantic late-night stroll, as well as cyclists, joggers and roller bladders famished from their workout along East Coast Park. We take a look at five main draws here.
