Nothing beats dining by the beach. After a dip in the sea and sand, show off your brand new tan at the East Coast Lagoon Food Village for piping hot street nosh. The food centre is big on barbecued seafood and local fare such as chili crab, satay, mee goreng and popiah. With plenty of stalls serving up a variety of dishes, as well as seats catered for larger groups, stuffing yourself silly with food and beer at East Coast Park with fellow beach bums is sorted. Just watch out for the strong winds come night time.
TRY One word – satay. The barbecued classic is unbeatable here. Haron Satay has been around for a long time, and there's a reason why. Its generous servings of chicken, beef and lamb satay, paired with rice cakes and tasty peanut sauce, is an absolute favourite amongst beachgoers here. If you're brave enough, Stringray Forever BBQ Seafood's barbecued sambal stingray ranks high on the heat-o-meter, and its serving-size is great for sharing. Craving for fried carrot cake and popiah? Lagoon Carrot Cake's seafood take on the dishes is one to try.
BEST TIME TO VISIT In the evenings after a day cycling through the park or out on the beach.
