The Crave Nasi Lemak outlet at Plaza Singapura has been suspended for two weeks for rodent infestation, the second such case in four months at the mall.

In May, the Toast Box outlet was suspended for rodent and cockroach infestation by the National Environment Agency (NEA). A suspension notice on NEA's website said Crave's stall was suspended from last Friday for two weeks until Aug 23.

Plaza Singapura centre manager June Ang said it is working with Crave to improve hygiene standards and has stepped up checks on other tenants.

"Cleanliness is of paramount importance to our mall and we have instituted tenant guidelines on proper housekeeping and pest control," she added.

The Crave outlet was fined $900, NEA said.

It said it took a serious view of offences and reminded food operators to observe good food and personal hygiene practices at all times, and to engage only registered food handlers.

Anyone who comes across poor hygiene practices at food outlets may call NEA's 24-hour contact centre on 1800-2255-632 with details.
