A good restaurant name has the ability to tantalize your taste buds before you even enter the restaurant. The name The French Table may conjure up images of delicious French cuisine and special dates or expense-account meals. However, The French Table at Waterway Point is a casual diner serving affordable Japanese European dishes. There are, in fact, only few French dishes on its menu. We think of it as sort of the equivalent of Jack’s Place – a nice place for a good meal at reasonable prices.
(Updated 3 June 2016) Punggol has been transformed from a rural kampong into a modern waterfront town with lush greenery, resort style facilities and recreational amenities. The residents of Punggol now have a brand new Waterway Point shopping mall right next to the Punggol MRT Station. Waterway Point food options are targeted mainly at families and casual diners. There is a good variety and diverse cuisines are represented. Many familiar names are there but a few interesting eateries and less accustomed brands can also be found in the new mall.

Here are our suggestions for what things to do for free in Singapore and where to eat after that.

We hope you find this list of Things to do for free in Singapore & Where to Eat useful.
The places are listed in no particular order. We will add new ones from time to time.
We remember traveling by bus through the tree-lined narrow Punggol Road to the seafood restaurants at Punggol Point. Getting there was an adventure by itself. Punggul has been transformed beyond recognition but we are glad to find out that the last stretch of Punggol Road has remained largely unchanged. Going down that road was like going back to Singapore in the late seventies. The Ponggol Seafood (Old Hock Kee) Restaurant was one of the two restaurants next to the jetty at Punggol Point. Ponggol Seafood Restaurant, famous for their Ponggol Mee Goreng, is now located in the new food and beverage complex at Punggol Point known as Punggol Settlement.
