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.
