Kitchen Island Waterfall and Electrical Outlets

last month

I'm an avid cook and am looking forward to having outlets on our island. Our current ancient one doesn't have them. I imagine I'll use them frequently for my mixer, immersion blender, rice maker, etc. I want to get a waterfall countertop because I love the look and have young kids. Unfortunately our cabinets don't have any space for an outlet due to how the drawers occupy nearly 100% of the front, and we don't have space for filler. So I think I'm left with putting outlets on top or on the sides. The island is only 10 sf, but I think the code revisions require me to have 2. I've tried to leave no stone unturned, but am I missing something in terms of outlet placement? Thanks.
