Don Don Donki SG: Build More Muscles With These 7 Interesting Supplements

    1 / 8 DON, DON, DON, DONKI

    Don Quijote, the largest discount store in Japan, has finally arrived at our shores with a 2-storey outlet at Orchard Central, marking its first Southeast Asian branch. However, because there is already a Spanish restaurant with the name ‘Don Quijote’ at Dempsey hill, the discount store is known as ‘Don Don Donki’ here, after its trademark tune.

    Packed with food, snacks, beauty items, drinks and household products, it is essentially, a Japanese version of Mustafa.

    And since the Japanese are known to have interesting, crazy, and some say, wild flavours in their foods (chili Kit-kat, anyone?), here are 7 fitness supplements that we’ve found there which you can try if you get tired with your boring vanilla flavoured whey protein shake.
