MOS Burger to open at Waterway Point in Aug 2019
Easties rejoice! It seems that a new MOS Burger outlet will soon be opening at Waterway Point in August this year.
The famous fast food chain is still under construction at the mall where pictures were snapped.
The construction signage claimed that this new MOS burger outlet will be opening in August so you’ll be able to get your fix really soon.
The restaurant will be located at B1 next to Breadtalk.
The new MOS burger outlet will not be alone though. Famous Fillipino fast food joint, Jollibee, recently opened a new branch in the mall on the same level to massive queues.
Are you excited for the new eateries coming to Punggol?
Jollibee is finally open at Waterway Point and the queues are insane
It is no secret that Singaporeans love their fried chicken, especially the ones from the famous Filipino fast-food chain, Jollibee.
When people heard that an outlet would be opening at Waterway Point on 18 July (Friday), you can bet that many people were pretty excited about the news.
And to show their enthusiasm, some people started queueing outside the store from as early as 7.30am.
Jollibee snapped some pictures of the insane queues and shared them on Facebook to show everyone how well-loved their fried chicken is.
One reason for the long queues was that the first 100 people in the line were entitled to the very adorable Jollibee pillows. The lucky first 5 customers managed to walk away with the limited edition Jollibee Funko POP! Figurine.
So, if you’re a fried chicken lover and you live near Waterway Point, you definitely need to check Jollibee’s new outlet out (maybe after the queues have died down)!
Address: 83 Punggol Central, Singapore 828763
Opening Hours: 8am – 10pm
Nearest Station: Punggol

Famous Burger Joint Five Guys is opening an outlet in Singapore by end of 2019
Queued 2 hours for Shake Shack but it didn’t quite make the cut? Fret not as you can look forward to sinking your teeth into another popular American burger joints burgers pretty soon.
Five Guys is slated to open an outlet at Plaza Singapura by the end of 2019 and they will most likely be situated near the main atrium at the ground level of the mall.
For those of you who have been living under a rock and do not know what Five Guys are, they essentially are a burger joint that specialises in outrageously juicy and lip-smackingly good burgers that are made from 100% freshly ground beef.
The brand has 8 burgers on their menu which ranges from the classic Cheeseburger to the more sinful Bacon Cheeseburger.
One thing that makes Five Guys so popular is the fact that you are given the freedom to choose as many toppings as you please; from tangy relish to juicy grilled mushrooms, you’ll undoubtedly be spoilt for choice!
We are unsure if the Singapore menu will be the same as their American counterpart but we are sure that either way, it’ll taste amazing!
