We couldn't get out of here fast enough. There is an overpowering aoma of fish and the cooking area looked fairly flithy.

It is an excellent collection of sights, sounds and smells (maybe some of the smells are less than excellent :) You can buy everything from fruit (mangoes are outstanding), various meats, seafood and spices (they will make a blend of...

I know if quite a few people who come to this market to buy their fish for their weekly marketing. The fish are fresh.... More

During our 2 week holiday in Singapore, we ate here a couple of times, all the food that we have was excellent, try and get a seat outside so that you can get some fresh air as its very hot there.

We went to this hawker centre looking for the typical flavors and smells of India, only to realise that in Singapore, one can find all Asian cuisines under the same roof. We had naan, roti prata, vadai, chendol and teh tarik. There was so much more to try but our stomachs were already full. Prices are reasonable and the stall... More

A visit to Singapore would not be complete without a visit to the awesome TEKKA Wet Market It's called Wet Market because in the past they slaughtered beasts and fowl on the spot which they no longer do. Stalls are loaded with fresh produce, meat, fowl and an impressive array of fresh seafood all chilled or on ice. There's another... More

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
