My wife and decided to stop by the Downtown East mall on our walk around Pasir Ris. It was sort of on the way, and we hadn’t been there yet, so, why not?
It looks like a great place. As we came through the door we noticed a girl handing out free samples for premium yogurt. I didn’t catch the name of the place, but the yogurt was nice. It had toppings added onto it too that went along with the flavor. It looked a bit pricey, but one of these days when I have money to burn I’ll probably get a cup to share with my wife.
The mall as a whole seems to be tailored to young kids and teenagers. I guess you could say it has a theme, including the types of stores in the mall. It’s really not that big a place, as far as how many stores are inside it, but it does have quite a few restaurants and drink shops, plus an arcade, a type of paid playground for kids, an indoor Ferris wheel, some anime shops, and a movie theater.
I suppose the best part of it all is that the mall is only a 15 minute walk from where we live.
