18 Halal Things To Makan At Compass One

image from Compass One

On 1st September, a brand spanking new mall officially opened in Sengkang!
Yes – we are talking about Compass One!

Boasting a whole plethora of stores ranging from… well… they have everything lah! LOL
Serious! Just check out their Store Directory and you’ll see what we mean! They even have special features like the Ninja Trail for the kids!

Well, as always, the #1 priority for us is – what’s there to makan at Compass One?
Lo and behold! They have no less than 18 Halal makan options for us (and hopefully more to come in future!)

But it’s important to keep in mind that because the mall (and the makan places) have just started operations, a lot of them do not have the Halal certificates in-store at this point of time. What we can tell you is that – we have checked and the makan places listed here in the the midst of certification.

As usual, it will take awhile before the whole process is completed (including a certain period of running time for the outlets). Head down if you’re comfortable but if not, there’s no harm taking note now and then making plans to head down when the certificate is confirmed!

Location: #01-34
Operating Hours: 11.30am til 10.00pm

We usually go to the original outlet located at Lucky Plaza but Ayam Penyet Ria now has 6 outlets spread out across the island with the latest now at Compass One. Get your fix of Ayam Penyet (I personally prefer the Empal Penyet!) and don’t forget to ask for extra kremes (crumbs) okay! Oh, and just a word of warning – that sambal is the real deal so expect that spicy kick to the max! Shoik!

  • This is my first time posting a comment or review, but this time I think management of “My Briyani House” should do something. We have eaten there around 2-3 times already since it’s opening. And we always order Nasi Goreng Ikan Bilis with some prata. And 1st time is OK, 2nd time I found hair on my Nasi Goreng (still acceptable). Then, the 3rd time, last night (Sept 22) was the last straw. I found 2 hairs (small hairs, beard hair) in my Nasi Goreng that I end up not eating the rest of it. I didn’t dare to find more hairs. I hope management will do something and ask their cook/chef to at least use mask and head covers for hygiene purposes.
