However, those who frequent the food haven to satisfy their supper cravings may have to put their regular visits on hold soon.

From 15 Aug to 14 Nov, the hawker centre will close for repair and redecoration, according to a banner outside their premises.

Changi Village Hawker Centre will close till 14 Nov

The news of the hawker centre’s closure has been going around hiking and cycling enthusiast groups for days.

Apparently, many of them designate the hawker centre as the finishing point for their trips and would often end the day with supper there.

On Saturday (16 Jul), a member of the Singapore Hikers Facebook group snapped a picture of the banner hanging on the façade of the hawker centre.

According to the notice, blocks two and three of Changi Village Road will be closed temporarily from 15 Aug.

A check on the map reveals that these blocks are the locations of the Changi Village Hawker Centre.

Affected stalls will thus close for three whole months till 14 Nov.

The East Coast Town Council, who apparently put up the banner, expects businesses to resume as normal on 15 Nov.

Doused in savoury brown gravy and topped off with succulent slices of chicken, the hearty dish leaves folks pining for more.

These are just glimpses of what the hawker centre has in store, so one can imagine the dilemma customers often have about settling for one dish.

The closure of the venue, albeit temporarily, will thus be a huge change for many regular cusotmers.

Try other eateries in the area

Although three months may not seem long, the familiar hustle and bustle of the hawker centre will certainly be missed.

But those who frequent the area would know that there are other food options that open till late.

So if you don’t want much of your schedule to change, do consider trying out the other eateries in the area in the meantime.
