Foodies in the west of Singapore can look forward to more options to satisfy their hunger pangs. Senja Hawker Centre — at Senja Close, near the Jelapang LRT station — opened to much fanfare on Sunday (Dec 11).

Operated by Kopitiam, Senja Hawker Centre is a two-storey food haven featuring 28 stalls selling a variety of local cuisine such as duck rice, ban mian and nasi ayam penyet. Its dining area is made up of 664 seats and 159 tables.

There’s also a rooftop garden slated to open in early 2023.

Despite the accoutrements, Kopitiam said in a statement that “affordability is the cornerstone” of the new hawker centre.

For instance, Senja Hawker Centre has two stalls — Rice Garden and its halal-certified version Warong Rice Garden — that offer meals at prices as low as S$1.50 and S$2 respectively. 

Rice Garden offers budget-friendly meals in the form of an economic mixed rice stall, allowing customers who are ComCare cardholders to enjoy two selected vegetables and one meat item from as low as S$1.50. Chas Blue, Merdeka Generation, Pioneer Generation and NTUC cardholders can get this at S$2.50, and the public at S$3. 

A similar value-for-money concept is also available at the new Kopitiam Corner in Bedok South.

Wallet-friendly meals can also be had at Senja Hawker Centre’s Warong Rice Garden. It dishes up the Warong Set, comprising nasi kuning (yellow rice) with chicken or fish patin, at the concessionary price of S$2 for ComCare cardholders. Chas Blue, Merdeka Generation, Pioneer Generation and NTUC cardholders can get the set at S$3, and the public at S$3.50.

Well-known F&B brands are part of the hawker mix at Senja Hawker Centre.

Michelin Bib Gourmand award winner Shi Hui Yuan is selling its famed hor fun in a collagen-rich gravy and nutrient-loaded braised herbal sauce. Each plate of hor fun is packed with more than 1,500mg of collagen.

Another famous brand that can be found at Senja Hawker Centre is Pin Wei Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun, which is listed in the Michelin Guide

It’s known for its Hong Kong-style handmade chee cheong fun (rice rolls) drenched in light soya sauce. The dish is made fresh at the stall using the traditional method, bu la chang, which refers to having the rice-flour batter poured on a cloth over a steamer.

There are four types of chee cheong fun available — plain, prawn, char siew and scallops.
