Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre reopens

About 3 months ago, I have written a post on my visit to the temporary Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre which has become 'notorious' due to the mass food poisoning incident caused by customers eating poisoned Rojak from the "Rojak Geylang' stall. The mass poisoning caused the death of an old woman and a pregnant woman to lose her baby, it was such a sad case.

Fast forward 3 months ago, the new Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre was finally opened! Confidence is definitely restored as my Dear and I visited the new spacious and swanky premise which looks like one large elegant giant Malay heritage cultural centre last Saturday. This new market and food centre is located near Paya Lebar MRT station in the hub of the Malay Village.

There is a galore of food and new shops selling Malay costumes and accessories and I must tell you that hygience is defintely of the highest standards as there is a plethora of wash basins and restrooms which are really clean!

The revamped Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre has accentuated the Malay culture and heritage with the thematic design of the 2-storey market and food centre characteristic of an ancient Malay cultural building. I have not really tasted the food and so I cannot give my comments here yet. If the food is nice, and coupled with the nice environment of the food centre and market as well as the cultural architecture, I have no doubt that Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre will soon become one of the many iconic food centres in Singapore!
