Pasir Panjang Food Centre dates back to the 1970s and in the early days it was a small food center with only a handful of stalls, serving dishes to workers and residents in the area. As it gained popularity, it underwent a major renovation in 1980 to expand its facilities and accommodate more food stalls. Today it is home to rows of interesting food, offering a wide variety of local cuisine. We’ve rounded up 15 stalls from Pasir Panjang Food Centre that will leave you with a satisfied tummy!
Ivy’s Hainanese Herbal Mutton Soup comes with a Michelin recommendation so it’s no surprise why they have a snaking queue daily. The mutton is marinated with fermented red yeast and seared in oil to remove any gaminess, then stewed for hours with more than 20 kinds of herbs. As a result, the Herbal Mutton Soup is deeply flavourful. You can also add on tendon, tulang, or have it with mee sua.
