Singapore's Chinatown Complex has unfortunately been closed due to a Covid-19 cluster on 12 September, leading to Chinatown Complex being closed for disinfection and cleaning for every one's safety till 15th of September. And unfortunately, this means that a lot of Chinatown's food businesses have been put on hold. Hawkers said they saw much of business falling once the news broke out - so while those affected rest and recuperate, many who work within the area or just enjoy the food there cannot get access to their favourite meals.
But worry not, there are plenty of other halal Chinatown food options
that were not affected by the Covid-19 clusters and closure. So if you're in the area and in need of something filling, this is your guide to getting access to meals away from the complex's hawker centre.
