We came here to eat local Congee at one of the stalls in Hawker market. Among the many stalls, one stood out because it has people lining up for their congee. Other stalls did not get as much attention. The congee tastes really good and the place is bustling with travellers and locals.

I was here on the first day when it opened on 6 Aug 2016. It is almost 4 years that I came here for the 2nd visit. This time I came during the Covid 19 period at a time when the Phase 2 opening kicked in. Under Phase 2, patrons can have their meals at the hawker center with strict compliance to safe distancing measures. No patron is allowed to sit at the marked seats.

As I stepped into the hawker center, I noticed there was a handful of Safe Distancing ambassadors (SDAs) attired in SG Clean t-shirts taking observation positions at four corners of the hawker center. They would intervene the moment they observed that safe distancing measures were not observed. I was queuing at the vegetarian stall when one ambassador advised me to keep to the red tape spacing on the floor.

This is one of the best hawker centers located in the west of Singapore. It is also the first hawker center to be managed by the National Trade Union Congress Foodfare Co-operative with an objective to provide low cost food options for the locals.

The hawker center has a total 28 food stalls. Among them, you can find about 7 stalls with food price marked below $3/-. With such economical options, the hawker center attracted quite a big crowd during weekend and as such, the SDAs were present to ensure that safe distancing measures are strictly complied.

My observation also tells me that this is one of the cleanest hawker center I ever come across. I noticed that the cleaning contract workers were very fast in removing the utensils left on the tables. As such, there is hardly a pigeon or bird that flew into the hawker center to feed on the leftover food. You feel safe eating at such a sparkling clean place.

The food here are also of a diversified varieties. I noticed there is a Korean Japanese cuisine stall that sold Korean Ramen, Korean Ginseng chicken soup and Japanese Saba Fish set and a Saigon Food Street that sells Vietnamese Spring Rolls.

The rest of the stalls are the yummy delicious local delicacies. The seafood stall is famous for her Nonya Fish Head. The Father & Son stall is famous for her fried carrot cake and Char Kway Teow. There is also the Tong Fong Fatt Hainanese Chicken Rice which is rather cheap at $2.50 or $3.50 per plate. The Beauty World Handmade Yong Tau Fu is superb.

I understand from some glutton `news' that this hawker center is famous for her glutinous `Lor Mee' and is sold at below $3/- with rich ingredients. There is also the Pork Belly Ban Mian which attracted quite a number of customers. The handmade Bee Hwa Pau (buns) is also not to be missed. I remember buying them for my children when the hawker center first opened.

Those who like fast food can visit the Western & Grill for chicken/lamb/beef burger or mutton chop or french fries. There are also halal stalls that cater to the Muslims like the Habib Sahra stall that sold mee goreng and Indian rojak or the Bukit Panjang Nasi Padang stall that sold rice dishes.

It is rather refreshing during this Covid period to visit such a clean hawker center with so many varieties of delicacies. I was, however, rather shocked and disheartening to see the `dilapidated' state of the market at the 2nd level. Most of the stalls are now closed and only one poultry and one pork stall are operating. Feedback from residents showed that the nearby shops are selling at more competitive prices that at this market. If business cannot be sustained, the authority may wish to convert this into an extended hawker center instead of a market.

For back packers, this neighborhood hawker center is a great place to savor local delicacies at cheap rates. This is the best place to understand the local food culture.

We were told to eat at the Hawkers market by an Aussie we briefly met. He said the food was out of this world and it was great value for money still.
He wasn't wrong!
The choice of foods is awesome with fish, chicken and pork being the favourite choices from what we witnessed but there's food for everyone including veggies! The spices used are both colourful and taste great but be warned you will have to be patient in finding somewhere to sit if you go there in the evening as it is popular with locals and tourists alike. Still there is plenty of venders selling Tiger beer so so I was more than happy to wait. Your food is cooked to order once your seated and so the food is both fresh and hot.
I strongly recommend you visit to get a true flavour of Singapore cuisine.

This is a new Hawker Centre & Market in one of Singapore oldest suburb. It was officially open early this year. It is a modern Hawker centre that serve the local dishes to the residents. There are heaps of choice to choose from non halal & halal foods. One thing special about this hawker centre is the price is GOOOOD & the foods are yummy. Portion is smaller than normal shopping food court ( which way too much ). I will recommend the Char kway teow , Lor Mee & the Minced Pork & mushroom noodle Ohhh My Goood so yummy. There are also other yummy foods there too. As Singapore is always Summer, the design of the Hawker Centre try to make use of high ceiling & "giant helicopter" fan to cool the customers. I like the design of the whole structure too. Very GREEN . Access to the Hawker Centre is EZ , from city there is BUS 190 or 972 if not the Downtown Line will bring you to the Bukit Panjang LRT where you can alight at PENDING station and a short walk to the Hawker Centre.

This hawker market is about 15 minutes walk from where I was staying in Upper Bukit Timah Road. After a hot humid day I decided to stay local and it was a good decision.
Rustic is a good description, but with a good range of menu choices including Mookata the BBQ steamboat do it yourself which seemed very popular, great for 3+. I chose Gorang Mee from Old Times, noodles, squid and prawns in a lovely sauce S$5. The place was a bit messy, tables needed clearing and only about 75% of the stalls were open. But did me fine.

The Bukit Panjang Chicken Rice is good, has a big serving and I think is only worth $2.50‐3.00. Nasi lemak at the Indonesian stall is good also but sometimes the size of the chicken wing can be good or bad. Sometimes big more times small. Satay also nice. Ban Mian also was good and cheap at only $2.50 but of course smaller serving. The chinese stall selling nasi lemak though will overcharge you if you buy something that is not in a set.

The aunties at the drinks stall do not speak much English and will show grumpiness if they don't understand your order. But all in all this is a good hawker center. Plus the toilet is clean.

Good food in a good environment but it is a bit small. What is there is worth trying.

Handy, just off the light rail, pop in for dinner after work.
