plenty of singaporean and other asian dishes at really cheap prices. if there's a line then it's generally worth waiting for. if you're vegetarian it's a little harder as even if it's vegetables it may be cooked in oyster sauce or pork lard. make sure to have cash as they are small stalls and don't take card.

Opposite the tooth relic temple we visited here for a quick bite. Nothing quick about it though as there was so much to choose from! A meal will set you back only $3-5, with blended ice drinks about $3. There are local dishes (dried carrot cake, Peranakin dishes etc), as well as other Asian cuisines. For the money, I'd recommend... More

A bustling & clean hawker centre with a huge range of local food to choose from. Grab a seat as soon as you can find one & take it in turns to go & explore the food options - or leave a packet of tissues or hat on the seat to indicate it's being used. The stalls with the longest... More

Good honest food for a fraction of the price you'd pay in a restaurant. Singapore has as many food courts as much people from different backgrounds live there but i found this one particulary european friendly. p.s. don't fall for the carrot cake... :)

I came here to eat for lunch. They have delicious hainanese chicken rice in this hawker centre. All the food and drinks in this hawker centre is cheap. So it's a good place to eat and drink.

The Maxwell Food Centre provides a wide variety of Asian food and refreshments at an affordable price. It is a hawker centre. Food is purchased at stalls and eaten at common tables. The food is great, but the serving portions can be small. The tables and eating areas are clean and well maintained. The toilet facilities are typical of public... More

It might not be the biggest, but it has all the essential stands with quality street food and amazing prices: Tian Tian Chicken, crispy duck, soybean pudding, and fruit juices galore.

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.
