Ananas Cafe @ Sembawang MRT

Stopped at Sembawang MRT today and I chance upon an eatery named “ANANAS” (I think it’s pineapple in arabic) Anyway, there is a HALAL certificate being displayed. Did not came close to look at the place and food. (Insya-Allah will one day..)

But it looked interesting. I think they specialised in nasi lemak. I read reviews from other blogs that the sambal sotong is nice. Hmm…

So do drop down to Sembawang MRT station for a look/ a bite!

  1. There's two branches at Pasir Ris MRT, and one more along Choa Chu Kang MRT Exchange. At least one of the Pasir Ris branch as well as the CCK one are halal!

    The food is fairly alright and very cheap, esp the one at CCK where I find the staff friendlier too. It seems they sometimes charge according to their mood though!

  2. Yup, the food is quite good, it cost only $2 for nasi lemak with chicken wing and egg..and great sambal too.. Mee goreng taste good for $2 too…

  3. I patronize Ananas at Chua Chu Kang Mrt. Its Halal Certified. They sell Nasi Lemak and many deep-fried sides, Mee Siam, Laksa, Fried Noodles, Coffee etc.
    They have outlets at Bukit Gombak MRT and Jurong East MRT too, but w/o Halal certs. The shops are Muslim-owned I think and all the workers are Malay-makciks, thus the invisible Halal Logo?
    The BG & JE outlets sells Malay kuihs and usual Malay dishes such as pre-packed nasi lemak, fried macaroni, fried lontong, rice and many dishes. I once bought kuih from the BG outlet at 7am and to my dissapointment found that the vadais that are sold to me are cold and tasteless, the kuihs ($0.40 or $0.50 each,i forgot) not worth the cents. When I ate the vadai, it was as though I just bite into a vadai from the following day. =(

    However, their nasi lemak at CCK is good. The sambal comes in huge packets, mass produced in factories I guess. My favourite is Nasi Lemak Set A, only $2 it comes with warm, green fluffy rice, a sunny-side up egg, one crispy fried chicken and MOST importantly sambal. If you're a sambal lover like me, do ask for more sambal cause they can be quite stingy with it at times(hehe). The set is worth your $2. The mee siam is so-so. For $3, I think you can get something much worthy of your $. And their deep fried sides, there's many varieties such as fried tofu, fish cake, otah, fishballs, seaweed chicken one warning though, the sides can get VERY expensive. I bought from them twice, and at both times bought the same kinf of breaded imitation fish cake with my nasi lemak. Once they charged me $1 for a piece of fish cake and the other time they actually charged me $1.30. So yeah..I agree with harris chai, they do sometimes charge according to their mood.

  4. I stayed in Sembawang so i quite frequent to this place.. some of my Muslim neighbour are working there.. the shop owned by Chinese man.. but fully cooked and served by Muslim makcik2 or kakak2.. they have halal cert too.. they're many varieties, mostly chinese style foods.. the chix wing not bad ahh.. the nasi lemak rice is green in color.. my fmly members said not bad but i've yet to try it.. the kueh2 used to be very expensive but now they have lowered the prices down..

  5. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  6. The staff at sembawang sucks! Especially the butch. She scolds the customers and corrects our English. I ordered a sausage together with my noodles and she scolded me saying that it was known as a "hot dog". Doesn't she know that hot dogs come with bread?
