Just as we’re getting back into the groove of heading back to the office, Amoy Street Food Centre will close for three months, from October 11, 2021 all the way till January 10, 2022 for repairs and redecoration.

The last renovation work took place some six years ago.

Amoy Street Food Centre is best known for its affordable grub, including fish soup stalls Han Kee and Piao Ji Fish Porridge, and four Bib Gourmand-listed shops: A Noodle Story, Hong Kee Beef Noodle, Hoo Kee Bak Chang, and J2 Famous Crispy Curry Puff. It is also home to a handful of young hawkerpreneurs that bring a modern touch to traditional local grub, such as flavoured kopi and teh from Coffee Break and salmon-topped meals from Big Bowls Project. You’ll have one month to satisfy your cravings before the these hardworking hawkers go on a hiatus.

Sadly, those working in the CBD will have to start looking for alternative spots for cheap eats during lunchtime. Some popular haunts around the vicinity: the Market Street Interim Hawker Centre (home to another Ah Liang Ipoh Hor Fun outlet) and Maxwell Food Centre for Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, lesser-seen Eurasian cuisine from Popo & Nana's Delights, and many more. Otherwise, check out Time Out Singapore’s ultimate guide to Amoy Street for all the alternative eats in the vicinity, including Avenue 87, which reimagines local flavours; Dumpling Darlings for meaty parcels; and award-winning bar Native
