Situated in northeastern Singapore, Punggol is famous for its seafood. If you want to try freshly landed prawns, steamed fish or seaweed soups, it's easily one of the best destinations in the Lion City. The area has long had a reputation for great food and for decades the local scene was centred around boat-based seafood restaurants, but that's all changed. Nowadays, there are comfortable air-conditioned restaurants in Punggol Central and out at the Point as well, all offering a superb and diverse selection.
Although the old-style seafood shacks and boats have been swept away by the tide of progress, some of the very best Punggol restaurants are still based around freshly caught seafood. You can try Peranakan dishes like nyonya fish wrapped in banana leaf, pick a fish head curry from one of the area's Indian eateries, or head to Punggol restaurants for Chinese-style Teochew steamed fish. Few places in Southeast Asia are as creative with how they use the sea's bounty, making Punggol a seafood lover's heaven.
The area isn't just a place to gorge yourself on fish and shellfish though. It's also a magnet for active Singaporeans. Places like the Waterway Park are popular with cyclists, runners and skateboarders, while the area around the Point is a hub for sailors and kayakers. If you love getting out of the city centre to enjoy the area's fresh air and scenery, why not combine exercise with fine cuisine by booking a table at a Punggol restaurant where you relax after your adventure and fill up on delicious fare in stylish surroundings.
Punggol's restaurants are also fabulous places to celebrate with the people you love. Many of them feature spacious outdoor terraces with views of the estuary, making them some of the most enjoyable places to eat out in Singapore. When you bundle in the wide range of different cuisines available, everyone should be catered for. Whether they love massive steaks, exquisite seafood, Peranakan dishes or healthy grilled food, restaurants in Punggol offer pretty much everything, and with everything casual bars, street food spots and fine dining restaurants to choose from, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect restaurant for any occasion.
