New Hawker Centre to Serve Up Creative Meals

The newest hawker centre in the country might just be the first to have both traditional and hipster cuisine served in the same place.
Besides food for traditional tastebuds, the new Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre will have one floor of "creative cuisine" for the adventurous palate, served in a space designed to look like a hipster cafe.
To add to the "hipster food market vibe", NTUC Foodfare, which will run the centre, said events, such as art markets, craft fairs and music gigs, may be held in the space to enhance the dining experience. 

The hipster menu, which typically tends to refer to cafe food, fusion fare or local food with a twist, could include offerings such as beef stroganoff and stew, or Japanese donburi in which diners can mix and match the ingredients.
The final list of food offerings, however, will be unveiled after Sep 22, the closing date for Singaporeans and permanent residents to apply for the stalls. They can start applying from next Monday.
NTUC Foodfare said every stall on both levels will offer at least two budget meals, in line with its aim to offer residents affordable and quality cooked food. The hipster cuisine will also be comparatively cheaper than similar dishes at cafes.
