They are doing road work at the moment for the new train station, expect noise and dust. Other than that it is still a good place for a cheap eat. Shop around for those stalls with good rating.

Dumpling? Satay? Noodles? Fish? Hainan chicken and rice? All are possible options at the Maxwell Rd. Hawker center. We were not sure what to expect, but it was a lot of fun and our choices of pork satay, and pork and dumpling noodles with veggies were great. We would have tried one of the stalls for Hainan chicken and rice,... More

Bought the pumpkin and carrot cakes from one of the popular stalls there. Quality not so good @$2.50 per portion. Lack the authentic favour, can be better. There are plenty of local food stalls there. Probably I didn't try the good ones yet.

Food here is very delicious, Wu Xiang ingredients are different from others. They are home made and very yummy. This food business has been around for more than a century. If you are around this vicinity, you should give it a try :)

Great meals, great selections, great service, local dishes, fantastic price with local ambiance. Skip the tourist restaurants and eat where the locals eat. This hawker stand is one of the originals along with Newton Square. I ate there 18 years ago and it has not changed. You can get great eats for under $10.00 US.

One of my favorite things about Singapore was the Hawker centers. These are outdoor food courts with a plethora of local food that's ridiculously cheap and seriously delicious. I had the chicken rice and it was amazing. The place is a mix of tourists and locals and you can get lunch there for less than $2 USD.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
