Conveniently located just next to Chinatown, this hawker (food court) offers a variety of Asian foods on a very low budget. Generally you can eat here (well) for a budget of 2-4 USD per person.

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
