The shopping centre is located above Sengkang MRT and lies next to Sengkang Bus Interchange. It boasts 4 levels of retail, F&B outlets and amenities together with a basement that has several food options.

With my pair of short legs, I explored the mall and curated a food guide featuring the 10 best dining spots at Compass One to makan at with your family and friends. Don’t worry… there aren’t any flying insects on brushes involved!

1. Chicken Pot (#B1-34)

compass one - chicken pot front

Indulge in an authentic hotpot experience at Chicken Pot, a renowned franchise concept that hails from Shanghai, China. You’ll be given a choice of 5 flavours: chicken, beef, prawn, fish and chicken pork tripe.

What sets them apart from other hotpot establishments is that you’ll get to enjoy it as a claypot-style dish at the start. When you’re ready, watch the magic happen right in front of you as the service staff adds broth to transform the dish into a mini steamboat— how cool is that?

Order the Chicken Pork Tripe Hotpot (S$15.80 for small, S$23.80 for large) which comes with a double-boiled pepper soup with generous servings of tender chicken and pork tripe.

If you’re not a big fan of meat, you can also give the Fish In A Pot (S$18.80 for small) a go. You’ll get either snapper or grouper fillet strips depending on the catch of the day, simmered with a broth of preserved pickled vegetables.

Many years ago, I came across D’Laksa for the very first time at the basement of KSL Mall in Johor Bahru. I tried their Asam laksa and I was blown away! Boy, am I glad to see them emerging onto our shores, and one of them happens to be at Compass One! 

Those who haven’t tried this dish should do so. It has a multi-dimensional flavour consisting of sour, spicy, sweet and umami notes all in one. The Asam Laksa (S$5) comes with bits of fish, sliced red onions, cucumbers, and lettuce served with noodles.
