We were staying a few blocks from here so I set out for my fix of tropical fruit- I was pleasantly surprised to find a few organic stalls that had good quality fruit and vegetable. There is a huge variety of food to buy- I didn't explore the dry are of the markets- but from walking past it looks well... More

Geylang serai market is the focal point for halal food, muslim's garb and apparels in Singapore. Nothing fancy, as some of you might think twice before eating in the wet market. However, i can assure you that taste, food variety and cleaniness is very well observed here. One particular food that i love most while visiting here is putu piring.... More

Having spent my youth working and living in Singapore I became very fond of Malay dishes, and one of those I particularly enjoy, is named 'Mee Rebus' which is a delightful meal consisting mostly of boiled pasta served with a gravy in which a few tiny prawns and bamboo shoots, and nuts are mixed -I think! there are so many...

Most of the stalls in the food centre on the upper level closed in the evening. While there are many other food options around the area I always miss some of my favourites at the food centre such as the Alhambra Satay. With the opening of the Mr. Teh Tarik outlet which is suppose to open 24hrs, I would be... More

This market is not really worth the effort of a special trip, but it's interesting enough to wander through if you happen to be in the area. Surprisingly busy on a Sunday morning, with long queues of people at the various food outlets on the upper level. Unless you have a particular fascination with local markets, or if you actually...

My wife and I like to get the whole cultural experience while in Singapore, so I wanted to see places outside the typical tourist places. Unfortunately, the marketplace is typical of what we would see in the Philippines--where my wife is from. Except the people are largely Malay. I suppose I would have enjoyed it more if I had never...

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
Geylang
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city center, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colorful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
