Singapore--Maxwell Road Food Station closed?

Today my husband and I went by the Maxwell Road Food Station, and it was very closed. Is this just for a few days or is it permanent?

    What time were you there? Although Maxwell Road Food Centre's opening hours were 8am-10pm daily, many of its stalls close after lunch-time.

    Also, Tian Tian Chicken Rice - the best-known stall there - is closed on Mondays.

      We were there about 5 pm. It looked closed and dark, and absolutely no one was inside. We actually were looking for the chicken and rice place, but got some at the hawker market across the street. Loved it, and will have to get more!

        Coincidentally, I went there on the same day as you to be greeted by rows of closed stalls - it’s not permanently closed, just closed for spring cleaning (9 & 10 Jan 2012). :) This happens periodically at the Singapore hawker centres and dates will be announced beforehand by banners put up around the hawker centre. For overseas visitors, you can try checking this website:
