Don Don Donki is opening its full-fledged store in Downtown East. It will be beside McDonald's E!Hub of the mall.
Downtown East is a one-stop leisure, lifestyle and dining destination located in Pasir Ris between Pasir Ris Drive 3 and Pasir Ris Park.
There are currently 8 Don Don Donki stores in Singapore.
2. Orchard Central
3. Central @ Clarke Quay
4. City Square Mall
5. Harbourfront Centre
8. Square 2
The newest Don Don Donki store at Harbourfront Centre opened on 30 Oct 2020. Their outlet at Changi Airport Terminal 3 closed earlier this year.
Don Don Donki previously revealed they plan to open 10 outlets in Singapore. It seems like they are not far away from their target.
Canberra Plaza is having its soft opening today.
A queue to enter the mall has been forming since 10am. The estimated waiting time to enter the mall at noon is 1 hour.
Fast Food outlets
How can malls be without fast food restaurants?
A&W, McDonald's and KFC are available in the mall.
Quick Bites and Eateries
There are a number of food choices in the mall, considering the fact it will be catering to its neighbourhood crowd.
Halal food court, Cantine, is open on level 1. There is a vegetarian eatery and just several other eateries here.
Mr Bean, Dough Culture and Nam Kee Pau are available on level 1.
Quick bites are available at Sedap Goreng in B1.
For cafes, there are surprisingly on Starbucks and Ya Kun here. You can consider the only bubble tea store, Yi Fang, a cafe if you wish. Breadtalk is not open yet, but there might be Toast Box since the space seem rather big for this mall.
Daiso and Fairprice
In Basement 1, Daiso and Fairprice are open. Daiso comes with Threeppy here and the store isn't very big but it should provide some shopping relief with its $2 buys. Items at Threeppy start from $5.80.
Gym and Education Centres
There are many shops still empty on level 2 and 3. Gym Boxx and about 4 education centres are open.
Crowd during the opening period
Besides SKP, 7 Eleven and a rather big Guardian store, there really isn't anything worth beating the queue for at the moment. Canberra Mall is positioned as a Heartland Mall, catering to the basic needs of the resident nearby.
Perhaps, you can visit it when the crowd dies down.

Located just beside Canberra MRT station
Sukiya is opening its first outlet in Singapore in Suntec City.
This was spotted by me while making field reports this morning. It is near Harvey Norman and nearer to Promenade MRT Station.
Sukiya is Japan's leading Gyudon restaurant chain with about 2,000 outlets in Japan alone.
Gyudon is a Japanese dish consisting of a bowl of rice topped with thinly sliced beef and onions simmered in a mildly sweet soy based sauce. In Japan, Gyudon is a very popular quick lunch option.
In Sukiya Japan, a regular-sized Gyudon costs S$4.50 (350 yen). The price of set menu of Gyudon with side dishes such as Miso soup and green salad ranges from S$6.43 (500 yen) to S$9 (700 yen).
Besides Gyudon, Sukiya is also famous for its Yokohama Curry Rice. Prices of their curry rice starts from S$7.80 (550 yen).
In September 2019, Sukiya opened its first outlet in Hong Kong. A regular beef bowl cost about HK$25, which is equivalent to about S$4.30. The opening of their Hong Kong outlet allowed it to have its presence in nine countries and regions outside Japan after setting up its first overseas outlet in Shanghai in 2005.
There is no details about the opening date of this outlet and Sukiya's pricing for its items in Singapore at the moment. More will surely be made known in due course.
Suntec City Mall is located in town between Promenade and Esplanade MRT stations.
Like most malls in Singapore, there are Christmas decorations in the mall to welcome Christmas shoppers.
