Don Don Donki at Harbourfront

Don Don Donki’s goal of opening 10 outlets by 2020 is well within reach. Six months after opening its eighth outlet at Jem, the Japanese supermarket chain will have a new store at Harbourfront Centre—its first in the south side of Singapore.
Currently, the outlet is being renovated and its exact opening date has yet to be confirmed. However, we can expect it to start operating by the end of 2020. The store itself will be located on Harbourfront Centre’s third floor, where True Fitness used to be.
As most of you would know by now, Don Don Donki specialises in affordable Japanese snacks, meats, and lifestyle products—great news for those who wanna keep the Land of the Rising Sun close to your heart.
Some of the must-try items you should get here include their range of sashimi, nigiri, and bento—all of which will go at discounted prices as the stall approaches closing time. For a savoury meal, get their Salmon Nigiri Aburi ($9.90 for 10 pieces) which comprises blow-torched salmon slabs on soft mounds of Japanese rice.
Those planning for hotpot parties can also choose from a wide selection of fresh meats such as their Angus Beef Shabu Shabu ($10) that’s flown in from Australia.
Besides food, you can also get legit Japanese cosmetics at Don Don Donki such as this Suisai Beauty Clear Powder exfoliator ($27). Since COVID-19 has put a damper on everyone’s travelling plans, a trip to Donki is the best way to score these Japanese beauty products in Singapore.
Personally, I hope the Harbourfront Centre outlet takes a page out of Don Don Donki’s Clarke Quay outlet by having a bar that sells delicious booze from the likes of Suntory, Choya, and Maker’s Mark.
So if you’re dying to know more about the Don Don Donki outlet at Harbourfront Centre, keep an eye out for this page as we’ll update it with more information when it comes along. Who knows? The chain might even get inspo from their Novena opening and have giveaways and discounts!
