Jurong West Hawker Centre Reopens After 3 Years, Has S$3 Meals Like Fried Rice & Spaghetti

Jurong West Hawker Centre Reopens With 39 Stalls & Budget Meals

Jurong West Hawker Centre finally reopened with a soft launch on 28 Sep. The popular hawker centre previously closed three years ago due to a management change.

In a Facebook post announcing the opening, Member of Parliament (MP) Desmond Lee promised a wide variety of 39 food stalls in the two-storey building. The new layout features 580 seats for families to enjoy meals.

Several stores also feature S$3 ‘Budget Meals’, certainly a nice welcome given the slew of rising prices lately.

The official opening will occur sometime this month.

Jurong West Hawker Centre reopens with soft launch

It was three long years ago when the National Environment Agency (NEA) announced Jurong West Hawker Centre would close in Aug 2020.

During the long absence, NEA appointed JW 50 Hawker Heritage as the new operator. With feedback from 2,000 residents, extensive renovations were done.

Finally, MP Desmond Lee announced on Facebook that the brand new Jurong West Hawker Centre opened for a soft launch on 28 Sep.
