Not everywhere is cheap to eat in Singapore but you certainly can't complain about the prices at the Maxwell Road Hawker Centre. We enjoyed sharing some Hainanese chicken (best I've had), dumplings and craft beer. A perfect dinner! But there's plenty of choice and it's...More

It remains my favorite for local food. Everything freshly coocked and far from becoming a touristic spot like Lau pa sat is doing. Not far from Chinatown and close to the nice old building district of duxton rd area.

Having been born in Singapore, food has always been one of the themes that would emerge even before each meal began. It was always "What are we eating today?", or "What do you think we should have today?" an hour before a time remotely appropriate...More

We visited Maxwell Hawkers Centre on our Chinatown walking tour and were told that this was the place to go for Hainanese Chicken Rice and that since we were early we would beat the rush before it all sold out. It was also interesting to...More

There's a wide variety of local dishes. It's known for chicken rice: loads of tourists are lined up at Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice. Apparently, they beat Gordon Ramsay in a cook-off. TIP: If you don’t wanna line up for Tian Tian, AH TAI CHICKEN...More

You have the chance to try different local dishes for a rather reasonable price (2-5$). We had a chicken curry, seafood fried rice and some satay skewrs. All was good. Not as crowded as other hawkers. There is no outside dining! It might get a...More

This is one of the best places in Singapore that houses almost all the local flavours that Singapore has got to offer. Some of the stalls here have a long history. Gordon Ramsay even came here to steal some tricks. Definitely a great place to...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.

Easy way to get there is to take the East West line to Tanjong Pajar station and take the Maxwell Road exit (which should have directions to the market). Also worth trying, and it is a lot closer, is the Amoy Street Food... More
