If you have kids definitely come here, if you don't still give it a try. The snow ice is delicious and it has the basic flavours such as chocolate and strawberry as well as some Asian flavours for the adventurous. At $5 a dish it easily serves two people, on our first visit we shared between 2 adults and 2... More

Eating here is a must and it's worth coming to China town especially. It's only a short walk from the MRT. The food is wonderful, the staff are friendly and its well air conditioned. Their shave ice is very different from the common ais kacang. It's also very cheap!

I was in the mood for something local. The place packed with mainly locals so I wanted to try it. I have had shaved ice before but until now I never understood how anyone considered it yummy. Now I know! Loved it. Will come back every time I am in Singapore.

I had a craving for good Cantonese desserts, specifically Almond Paste and Walnut Paste. I promptly headed to Temple Street in Chinatown for this shop. It has expanded over the years to occupy three ground floor units of 3 adjoining shop houses, due to good business. Dining here is good, as its air-conditioned and it’s a good respite from the...

I will always have desserts here whenever I'm at Chinatown. It's always crowded but you don't have to wait very long for a seat. You'll have to order/ make payment at the cashier first. May not be the cheapest but they serve really good desserts. However I feel there's room for improvement for their black sesame paste.

I am a huge fan of this dessert place. Their standard is always the same. I always finished a bowl of warm sesame dessert. We also love their ice sesame and almond dessert. A very acquired taste for non-locals but worth to try. It just melts in your mouth as the ice is as fine as snow. 😋

They have a lot of hot and cold dessert choices, but the staff (as they are Aunties) and the cashier should be more patient and polite to us as some of people going there are tourists and we don't know the rules when order.

If you plan to have a Chinese dessert, then you have come to the right place. One visit is not enough as there are a lot of desserts (hot and cold) to choose from. The taste is OK and the ambience is good. Prices are a little higher compared to hawker centres, but it doesn't matter once you get to... More

What a place to have amazing desserts.. The ice towers with mango, chocolate and all sorts of tastes. Mango and pomelo sago pudding has to be the best you can get anywhere. Cool and fresh especially on a hot day in Singapore...that's every day.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful 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.
