Holy smokes, this is the THE place to get cheap, tasty eats! We had the Hainan chicken and rice because we were told it is just something you need to have if you are in Singapore. Are we glad we did. There are lots of food choices at this place and what makes it nice is that it is sort... More

The hawker center offers many food choices. Some were amazing, others okay. The center is crowded and loud. The prices are much cheaper than in the Chinatown food Street. But it did become an touristic place. If you walk away from the touristic places, you can find restaurants with better/equal prices. If a lot of locals eat there, you can... More

Tian Tian is the top name when it comes to Singapore chicken rice, but Ah Tai, which was set up by Tian Tian's ex-cook, has the better version, in my opinion. You get better tasting chicken, and for the same price you get a bigger serving, soup, and all 3 sauces. Admittedly, the rice offered by Tian Tian is better,... More

Having read the reviews, we decided this was the best hawker market (food center) to try. Maybe, were a little early, I don't know, but many of the stalls were closed. We immediately noticed the famed Tian Tian Chicken Rice stall. This was the only stall with a que. Thinking we should try the local delicacy we ordered. While the... More

We wanted to try local food while in Singapore, we visited China tow in the afternoon and had planned to eat at Maxwell Hawker stalls. Due to roadworks it was not as straightforward to find as expected but clearly signed so no problem. Lots of choice and prices very cheap , unlike everything else in Singapore. We had noodles and...

Found this hawker center by chance on google maps. When we took a cab the driver said it's a good choice because it's frequented by locals which want good food for a good price. And yes food was very good, fresh and prices low @ 3-5 S$ per plate. To top it off there is a booth that has 11... More

Everyone says Singapore is expensive but if you are willing to experience local food and daily life this is a fantastic place. Lunch time with the local workers descending on it are really busy but you get to see an unusual sight-mobiles left on tables while owners go and get there food from one of many stalls! Stalls include traditional... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
