The famous hawker centre will reopen on 31 Jan 2023 after the renovation works.

If Newton Food Centre is your go-to place for local seafood dishes, be sure to head down soon before its impending closure.

Newton Food Centre will undergo repairs and redecoration works

According to NEA’s website, Newton Food Centre will close from 1 Nov to 31 Jan 2023. This means the popular food centre will be closed throughout the year-end holiday period.

Although three months may be too long for some Singaporeans, the closure duration seems to be ‘standard’ for any Repairs and Redecoration (R&R) works by the National Environment Agency (NEA).

On the flip side, we can look forward to better amenities in the hawker centre once it reopens.

Crispy omelette coats a generous serving of oysters served with homemade chilli; there is no wonder the stall has remained popular since its inception in the 1960s.
