One of the famous/touristy foodcourts in Spore. Plenty of choices of nice quality food at cheap prices. This hawker center hosts Spore's oldest Western Food & Steaks Stall (est. 1976 or something like that) for almost half an year now there is also a craft beer stall - very good beers, must try! :)

We found this by accident as we stayed nearby. Then we found out it is one of the best in Singapore. Something for everyone's taste, but do try the carrot cake - nothing to do with what we call carrots, but it's delicious, especially for breakfast. Great prices, too.

Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay have eaten at this food court so it must be good. Maybe 10 minutes from the Chinatown Food Market.

This place is always very crowded with locals which can only be a good sign. It's crowded and vibrant and the food is varied and tasty.

If you like excellent, cheap local food on your travel adventures then make sure to visit the Maxwell Road Hawker Centre. A couple of the stalls have a bit of a rivalry with regard to their Hainanese Chicken Rice.... I think both are excellent.

When I need my hit of chicken rice, then Maxwell Food centre is the place for me. Fresh, tasty and oh so cheap. We always get here a bit before the lunchtime rush and always get a seat and quick service. Our favourite chicken rice shop is Hong Kong Hainese❤❤❤

We initially was going to go for lunch in Lau Pa Sat but the taxi driver took us here instead and told us this more local and authentic Singaporean. The famous Tian Tian chicken rice is located in this food centre. We unfortunately missed it as they happen to be close on the day we visited. If they are the... 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.
