Due to the low ceiling of this hawker centre, ventilation is not fantastic but they have put in lots of fans to keep the place cool. Don't go the next day after they have their usual spring cleaning (probably once every 2 ~ 3 months)...More

We went here mainly for Tanglin Crispy Curry Puffs - found it eventually. This food centre was a bit difficult to find our way around in, but if you are just wandering around sampling the dishes that is not a problem. Cheap food, cheap beer.

Hawker centers are the place to go when in Singapore if one does not mind Dai Pai Dong style (borrowing analogy from Hong Kong) food stalls. Most hawker centers are semi-open air, meaning they have roofs on top of the complex but the whole structure...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
