Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre Finally Opens!

WHAT & WHERE:

Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre has finally opened!!
Okay lah, so it’s just a soft launch for now but that still means you can already head down to enjoy some of the makan that’s being offered at this new spot in the heart of Pasir Ris!

It’s located just next to Pasir Ris Sports Centre and also pretty much just behind the big Pasir Ris Pond. It’s pretty much just across the street from Pasir Ris Bus Interchange and Pasir Ris MRT so it’s really convenient and easy to get to.

The original opening was supposed to be almost half a year ago but after much work and waiting, it’s finally open to the public as of yesterday (I think we might have been the first to report about it 😛 LOL)

NTUC Foodfare runs this place and it’s actually really big! 2 levels with a total seating capacity of over 700 (if I am no wrong). And it’s even got state of the art design and cashless payment (using NTUC Foodfare card or something like that). The first level has 20 hawker stalls while the 2nd level, known as the ‘Fareground’ has slightly more. The Fareground also has space for pop-ups and other stuff in the future so let’s wait and see about that.

By my count, out of the 20 hawker stalls at Level 1, only 4 were Halal / Muslim-owned. Level 2 has more stalls (although some were not open or occupied yet) and has about 4-5 which will settle down as Halal / Muslim-owned. I’m not sure if that’s the usual ratio but that equates to about 1-4 of the stalls on each level as being Halal / Muslim-owned.

Well, here’s what we gathered when we dropped by (again) today so hope the information is useful!

PLEASE NOTE — as hawker centre is newly opened, stalls are still undergoing Halal certification (both 1st and 2nd level). They are gerenally grouped together (Halal stall together) but if in doubt, please ask the stall directly about their Halal status.

  • Ayam penyet stall #01-02 is not halal certified. They are only using the muis logo. Very rude operator when asked about halal certificate , he replied come back after 3 months and our Central kitchen is halal. So please check for halal certification if stall is not owned by muslim before you guys tell everyone that they are halal when actually they aren’t halal certified.

    • Salam Shaikh. My friend, calm down… 🙂

      I think maybe you’re feeling angry or upset about how the person responded to you.. quite rudely I agree and totally uncalled for.
      But do not let that cloud your judgement or your own politeness when responding.

      As you may well know, it takes a few months of operation for any eating establishment to get their Halal certification finalized. Same goes hawker stall (even here) whether it’s Muslim-owned or not. But what I can assure you is that the Ayam Penyet stall is currently undergoing Halal certification. How do we know this?

      1. We asked the stall (like you did). Luckily for me, they were a bit more polite to me, probably because it was the 1st day of operations.
      2. I also reconfirmed the details with NTUC Foodfare (which operates the entire hawker centre). They confirmed that Halal certification is pending for the stalls including the Ayam Penyet stall.
      3. NTUC Foodfare also confirms that – if you noticed – the Halal stalls are all grouped together (for both 1st level and 2nd level).

      So, I’d say to you know, the same thing the person at the stall said – if you are uncomfortable eating at the stall now, perhaps go back after about 3 months (which is the average time it takes to process a Halal certification). Insya Allah then the cert will be hanging on the wall and Insya Allah the staff will be more polite to you as well. 🙂

      Thanks!
