Japanese discount store Don Don Donki’s second outlet in Singapore will have a new “mobile foods” concept to cater to busy workers in the CBD area – and don’t worry, the baked sweet potato, one of the store’s most popular items, is still on the menu. It will have a Japan Mobile Foods section, which offers takeaway items such as yakitomorokoshi (Japanese-style grilled sweet corn), takosen (octopus takoyaki sandwiched between Japanese crackers), watagashi (fruity and colourful cotton candy), and gelato. Unlike the store’s flagship Orchard Central store, which is open 24-hours, the new outlet will operate daily from 8am to midnight, although it will open at 10am on its first day of operation.
