One of the best place to eat at

Lagoon is one of the best place to eat hands down. Who doesn't like eating nearing the sea and the food there is great. I have been there with groups of friends and we ordered stingrays, chicken wings, satay and carrot cake. I especially like the stingray and chicken wing, I don't know why but maybe it is because of the chili the stingray had and the well cooked chicken wings, yummy.

Finding a seat for a group of friends can be hard but patience is a virtue, it is worth waiting for a long time. Usually my friends and I can find seats pretty fast so it is not really a problem for us.

I recommend lagoon for friends, family or couples as the food there is great. It is also good for those who are in the area of east coast park, whether you are cycling or jogging, to grab a bite there as it is also more affordable than eating at those seafood restaurants and better than eating fast food.

Seat finding can be a chore, but the food more than makes up for it

When visiting a popular place such as East Coast Lagoon Food Centre, you'd do well to avoid the seemingly never-ending crowd on weekends. Once you are able to get past that however, you're in store for some really tasty treats. And tasty is just an understatement.

On my visit there 3 days ago, seat finding posed a huge problem when my friend and I took more than 20 minutes jostling for space, before eventually having to share a table with an older couple. Where it lacks in terms of space, East Coast Lagoon more than makes up for it with delectable seafood dishes such as the Stingray and Lala, with a chili paste and sauce to literally die for. Satay is a prominent feature there as well and we love how the meat remains succulent and tender with the peanut paste having just the right amount of sweetness and spiciness. Of course, there are many different stalls serving the same kind of food so doing some online research beforehand would help in determining which stalls you want to try.

All in all, a really good place with a wide variety of food choices to fill your rumbling tummy after an intensive day of workout by the beach! Do go earlier on a weekend though, if you want to avoid staring people down for a table and thereafter being stared down by others. Not the best of experiences.

Newton of the East

Forget about Newton and Chomp Chomp, East Coast Lagoon has it all and with much better ventilation and a gorgeous view. East Coast Lagoon houses 63 stalls serving all your hawker favourites including sambal stingray, satay and BBQ chicken wings in a resort-like setting. Other famous dishes you must try are, rojak from kampong rojak, roxy laksa and beef kway teow.

East Coast Lagoon provides excellent variety but if you plan on coming during the wekend, be prepared to either come early or face having to fight for a table with aunties. Most of the time you'll probably have to share the table anyway. Definitely worth the effort and the trip though.

Best Hawker Centre At ECP

When you visit the East Coast Park, give the other food places a miss. This is much better than any of the restaurants in ECP, and those are very much overpriced. This hawker centre is a very nice place to visit, and has excellent choices of food coupled with an excellent atmosphere.

The prices are very good compared to the other food places in the area. They sell a wide variety of local food items, and my best memory was the satay they sold here. It tasted very delicious, with succulent meat and it gave a very good experience.

Another bonus is that the toilets, amazingly, are very clean for a hawker centre, and even for the entire ECP. This is the place to eat in ECP.

A must visit when you're at ECP

Bustling with life especially on weekend nights, this vibrant food centre houses many local delights (including satay beehoon, oyster omelette and the like) that are savoured by both locals and foreigners.

As many stalls retail more or less the same dishes, competition is stiff and more often than not you’d be swamped by over-enthusiastic stall vendors vying for your attention. My personal advice is to look out for any awards/media recognition that the stalls would proudly showcase at their stall front, or the number of people queuing for their food. What better way to enjoy some Singaporean cuisine than under the stars? East Coast Lagoon Centre is the place to eat when you’re in the vicinity.

What's not to love with a view like that?

One thing that I look forward to when going to East Coast Park is the inevitable patronizing of the hawker centre, be it getting a drink after sweating it out or having a full scrumptious meal there.

The ambience of the place is every beach junkie’s dream, with the slightest tilt of your head showing you the sun sea and sand. I also like how varied the food stalls are, and how when its dinner time I will always be sure to see people eating a mountain pile of cockles, whetting my appetite.

It can get very crowded, so be sure to go a little earlier. I would also recommend going in large groups so as to try more things!

Great location

I was tired of the same old food in Singapore and decided to find something within my budget and not overpriced. After asking locals and searching on the web, I finally set foot on this place and right there immediately, I knew this is the right place for me.

Their open air concept and scattered tables with stalls everywhere selling a variety of food is a nice breather from all those fancy restaurants I've been to before. I had fun walking from one stall to another and picked my meals of the day.

However, the food aren't all that great. It's more like a hit and miss somewhere. But some stalls do sell good and tasty food and my favorite is the oyster omelette.

Location-wise, very laidback as it's situated by the beach. It gives you the most relaxing feeling ever. Just ignore the sights of the ships and you'll get a better feeling.

What's better than seafood by the sea

Seafood by the sea, what can be better than that? Cheap seafood by the sea of course! This food centre provides a wide variety of seafood at very affordable prices, of which you can get stringray and barbequed sotongs at a rather large portions at $8-$10 each. Matched with a cooling coconut, and the seabreeze blowing across your face, doesn't this sound awesome?

This has been a great place for dinner for my friends and I when we go to East Coast. After a full day of cycling and kite-flying at the beach, we definitely would want to end the day with a meal by the beach as well. We would order a large variety of seafood and a bowl of rice each to share, and it only adds up to only less than $10 each.

This place is also very accessible, being next to the Cable-Ski Park, and pretty near several bus stops. This is a definitely must-go if you are at East Coast!

Refreshing

Similar to some of the other reviewers, I will only eat here when I am at East Coast Park. However, it is without a doubt that the food here is good.

I especially love the curry beehoon and the sugarcane juice. After a day in the hot sun it is nice to come to such a warm and sheltered place to eat and relax and cool down.

I love the layout of the hawker centre as well, where every table has an umbrella over it as a shade, or you can choose to sit in little huts. It really gives the feel of a resort. I think East Coast Lagoon Food Centre is a great place to hang out with your family or have gatherings with family friends.

Watering hole

I liked to travel light, that meant that I would not carry a lot stuff when I went out. I would even be too lazy to carry water bottle when I went cycling at East Coast Park.

So this food centre became like an oasis in a desert when I was cycling there. This food centre was located near the mid point of the whole stretch of cycling track so if you were ambitious like me and liked to cycle the full length of East Coast Park, you would pass by this food centre two times.

You could go for traditional thirst quencher like sugar cane drinks or coconut drinks or the modern thirst quencher like 100 Plus or H2O. Normally when I was cycling, I would prefer not to do it on a full stomach so I had never tasted the food there but from the smell alone, I can imagine the food must be tasty.
