  • Sheng Siong – The wallet-friendly and guilt- freestyle 


With over 60 stores located in different districts in Singapore, Sheng Siong provides both wet and dry food at affordable prices. The usual fresh, chilled seafood and well-priced vegetables enable you to keep a healthy diet whilst also enjoying the chocolate and candies at equally affordable prices.
