Eastpoint Mall is right next to the Simei MRT Station and there is a bus-stop right in front of the mall. There is a shuttle bus service to Changi General Hospital and St Andrew’s Community Hospital. The well connected suburban mall has varied food & beverage options for the ordinary patrons – from bubble tea and artisanal coffee to cuisines from Thailand, Pakistan and Korea. Now that the public is advised to take safe distancing seriously, and visit malls only for essential goods such as food, you may not want to wander around a mall looking for what to eat or buy. Our 2020 list of Eastpoint Mall food outlets may help you make your choice earlier and just zoom in to the restaurants and cafes where you can eat or buy for takeaway.

Soy Sauce Chicken has become popular in Singapore recently because of a little book published by a tyre manufacturer. We do not know the history of soy sauce chicken but we reckon Hai Kee or 海记 must be one of the early purveyors of soy sauce chicken rice in Singapore. Hai Kee 海记 traces its heritage to a stall in Upper Cross Street started in the 1950s. Today Hai Kee has a flagship restaurant in Chinatown Point and several chicken rice stalls. There is a new outlet in the Bai Nian Foodcourt at Viva Business Park.
