Yishun step aside, Jurong West has gotten its own ‘smart’ hawker centre.
Located at Jurong West Street 61, next to Pioneer Mall, this 500-seater ‘smart’ hawker centre has 34 food stalls and a 14-stall wet market.
This is Singapore’s 2nd “smart” hawker centre after Yishun Park Hawker Centre.
A Smarter Hawker Centre
Jurong Hawker Centre has self-payment kiosks that accept cash. It also offers 8 other cashless payment options such as Apple Pay, Paywave and EZ Link Payment.
Diners also get to enjoy free wi-fi.
The food centre also has 3 tray-collecting robots to increase the efficiency of clearing tables and also to help diners who might not be able to carry their tray to the Tray Return Area.
Keeping Hawker-Fare At Hawker Prices
Aside from being a ‘smart’ hawker, this hawker centre is managed on a not-for-profit basis.
As such, each cooked food stall in this complex sells 2 regular-portion dishes at $2.80, ensuring there is a cheap option at every stall.
With 34 different hawker stalls, there is no shortage of variety and cuisines for diners to choose from.
The hawker centre will also be used to host community activities such as fairs, flea markets and music performances, in an effort to make it a natural gathering place for residents to dine and bond.
