Neighbourhood place with everything you need
A variety of coffee shops, supermarkets and bakeries are situated in khatib central. The coffee shops have a variety of Singaporean food like Roti prata, chicken rice, nasi lemak, all the Singaporean delicacies we like.
Although the ambience was not that great as most coffee shops have no air condition and the place is usually noisy with people chatting, the food there was appetizing. I like the roti prata stall there as the uncle usually offered plenty of curry for me.
The supermarkets like NTUC, sheng siong offered a wide variety of good quality groceries which also come quite cheap.
Khatib Central has also recently opened a new bakery which had many people queuing for their mouthwatering bread which comes straight from the oven.
They also build bicycle stands for people who cycle there so its convenient for cyclist to park their bikes there.
Spoilt for choices!
I used to go there once with my friends and I didn't know there were so many places to eat and we did spend some time deciding where to eat. We went to a place where it sells prata and Malay food. There were many different kind of prata like the cheese prata, banana prata and more. The food were served in rather big portions and really worth the money. The staff there were friendly and helpful as well.
We later went to a shop where it sells a little of western food like fries and mushroom soup, they also sell ice cream and waffle. It is a good place to have dessert. However, the place is a little small, as they have about 12 seats. There were 4 seats in the shop and 2 small tables outside the shop. The place feels really cozy and the staff is really friendly as well.
When we Singaporeans talk about "heartlands", Khatib Central certainly typifies that. With numerous shops of many kinds, supermarkets, fast-food outlets and good ol' hawker centres, Khatib Central is a haven to those who have lived in the area for many years. I would like to draw particular attention to the hawker centre at Blk 848. Situated in between the wet market and ABC Supermarket, this hawker centre has a rare attribute... Every single one of it's is a heavyweight in serving really popular good food!!!
Over here one can find great Mee Goreng at the Indian stall, or feel free to try a bowl of delicious prawn noodle. A plate of Chinese rojak to start off your meal is highly recommended, with a huge glass of freshly-squeezed sugar cane juice. I've eaten here many times, and I will definitely visit this heartland gem many more times!
Homely estate with everything
The small but homely Khatib central is filled with all things you could want, from groceries to hardware to good food.
Firstly, apart from the small but well-stocked sundries shops, there are two big supermarkets, NTUC and Sheng Shiong, and even Shop and Save if you cross the bridge over to Khatib MRT station. Here you can find all the daily groceries you need, although I find Sheng Shiong to be more economical, and NTUC to be better stocked with more variety. There is also a CK shop which has cheaper toiletries and household products, and even shoes and clothes, so do check it out before the supermarkets for what you need. For fresh produce like vegetables and meat, there is a “wet market” stall also selling fruits.
Khatib central is also well equipped with amenities like ATMs, AXS machines, and postboxes. I also like how there are many haircut shops, from prices as low as $2 per haircut. Those shops have many customers every day so I suppose there’s no need to worry about quality! There are also a dentistry, clinic, and tuition centres.
Of course, I must mention the great amount of food available here as well. Apart from the Macdonalds, there are 5 different coffeeshops and good food abound, from Muslim to really good Korean food to good zichar stalls. There is simply too much to list but some of my favourite stalls are the Yong Tau Foo, fish soup and handmade noodles stalls, for their great quality and affordable prices. The quality and taste are comparable to whatever famous food place names out there. Never a day without great food choices if you live around here.
