We chose to skip paying for our hotel breakfast, yes tight i know, and ventured across the road and found Tekka, proving to be one of the best decisions of our holiday, seeing as though food is the centre point on which our holidays revolve around! When you're one of the few white people trawling the seemingly endless array of... More

I ate almost everyday at the Tekka Market, I have had breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner, evening night snacks at Tekka Market. Why I love it? Simply because it offers a wide range of food from different ethnic group: chinese chicken rice, malaysian tea and banana crepe, Halal food...etc. Am actually feeling hungry while I am typing this up. :) I...

My boyfriend and I visited in October and the market was so busy and fascinating! It gave you a small taste on India and how they buy and sell fresh products. Def worth a look!!

Recommendation: visit whichever stand has just opened a big pot of biryani, and buy your drinks from one of the stands that sells drinks only (they have the best lassis).

This is a nice contrast to other parts of Singapore. The food stalls sell a variety of items- fruit, meat, fish, etc...Meals are good and cheap. If you have time, I recommend walking beyond the indoor market and exploring the other small shops in Little India. They sell a variety of items- jewelry ( real and costume), flowers, electronics, clothing,... More

Love Little India because its a nice break from the rest of the city's modern feel. Good distance too from Orchard road, and very accessible. Browse around the shops, and little alleys/markets, great fresh produce and loads of interesting little things to see and buy. Always bargain!

Heaps of Indian shops and grocers, plenty of Indian clothes shops and tailors. The ground floor has heaps of stalls selling Indian food on one side and Asian on the other. This place is a must.

Street food seems to have been swept away in Singapore, which I find a shame. But the hawker centres and purpose-built markets seem quite a good next-best-thing. The Tekka Market is one of these centres, this one in Little India. I was the only obvious tourist there when I visited, which is just what I wanted! The food floor was... More
