WestGate has recently just opened a new restaurant called Brotzeit. If my memory doesn't fail me, there are two other branches at 313 Somerset and Vivocity. I think that WestGate is a really nice shopping area many of the people who reside in the West side of Singapore. There's a whole range of shops from eateries to clothing stores and many more.

Although I would highlight that most of the shops are catered more to families, rather than younger teens or young adults. The restaurants there are mostly casual or casual-fine dining style, perfect for family outings for gatherings with friends.

WestGate is also connected to JEM and Jcube, so it's an accessible and delightful place to be. You can easily explore all three malls in a day, at your convenience. I think that the concept is really good, especially with the Orchard gateway coming to Singapore later this year.

While some may see Westgate as just another mall that seems to have been popping up one by one in the Jurong area over the recent years (We started with IMM, and aong came JCube, followed shortly by JEM), I find it an innovative touch.

This mall is very creatively designed, with different sections that are either in an open area with merely an overhead shelter, or enclosed in air-conditioned areas. While it may be confusing and hard to navigate around at first, it certainly brings a mini-adventure.

Some shops fall towards the more high-end range, with brands such as Kate Spade and Benefit, but others still cater to the general population.

The 4th mall to pop-up in the vicinity, which also has been publicised widely with town-brands. I was definitely intrigued.

The mall goes au natural with the open concept, with half the mall literally un-air-conditioned, and trees and plants and water works along the way. It definitely is a refreshing feeling. Although it really ain't gonna be my choice when the weather gets humid and hotter in the year. The stores here are considerably higher-end. With the likes of Kate Spade Saturday, Sembonia, and even features the much-missed Borders, brought back to yours truly by Popular. And truth be told, I have never heard of the latter brand, and that Borders is now handled by Popular doesn't exactly excite me.

The mall is closely joint to JEM by the J walkway, and in all honesty, I'd much prefer JEM to WestGate. Probably because up till now, Westgate still feels rather under the bridge and the stores really don't appeal as much as the ones in JEM. And in JEM, at least I battle the crowds in aircon. HAHA.

Some say Jurong East is slowly becoming the second 'Orchard', and I am inclined to believe this is true. If you have visited JEM, Westgate is similar, but perhaps slightly more upscale.

It hosts some of the usual suspects - Typo, Bata, Food Republic etc, but there are also several shops that are slated to open (or are already open) that can usually only be found in town. Some of the ones that I am most excited about are COS, Tim Ho Wan, PAUL Bakery and a Samsung outlet. No need to trudge down to Plaza Singapura to have my phone fixed anymore!

I highly recommend for you to make your way down to Westgate, but perhaps give it about a month more so that all the shops would be open. This mall, as well as JEM and the many other ongoing developments are going to make Jurong East the next place to be in no time.
