When it debuted with a 24/7 outlet at Orchard Central in 2017, followed by another at 100AM in Tanjong Pagar last year, Japanese grocery and housewares chain Don Don Donki is now claiming a big chunk of the basement level in City Square Mall for its third and largest store in Singapore.

Just as it did with the first two outlets, this new shop is likely to cause quite a splash on our shores. Officially opening to the public today, the store houses a bigger perishables and delicatessen section, an entire food court, and a bargain section (we do love a good buy).

Rival to the already-existing food court on the top floor of the mall, Don Don Donki’s version is, naturally, Japanese, with vendors like donburi store Bonta Bonta, Hokkaido ice cream makers Naganuma Ice Co, fried chicken joint Rang Mang Shokudo, ramen restaurant Santouka, and barbecue stall Yakiniku Heijoen. If you reckon these names sound familiar, that’s because they’ve all set up shop elsewhere in Singapore as well.

For a quick grab-and-go, head to the delicatessen for one-pack meals or swing by the takeaway food counter for more grub. The more extensive selection of Japanese cuisine includes dishes like croquettes, omu soba and, of course, sweet potato.

And, if you’re up for a rummage through the bargain corner, the trinkets in these boxes start from the lower-than-Daiso price of $1. Most of ’em probably won’t be on a need-to-buy basis, but you never know what gems you may surface from the pile.


Don Don Donki is at B2, City Square Mall, 180 Kitchener Rd.
Daily 9am-midnight.
