Hong Lim is located just behind the Chinatown Point Shopping Mall and can be reached, oddly enough, by getting off the NorthEast (purple) MRT line and following the signs.

There are several hawker stalls in Hong Lim that are famous, and can be easily identified by the long queues of people patronising those stalls. Some of my favorite stalls are the Outram Park Fried Kway Teow stall, the 168 traditional Lor Mee (noodles with braised meat sauce) stall.

This place housed some of the famous local gawker fare like the curry chicken noodles, fried Kway teow, fish ball noodles and bah cho mee, and many many more. However during lunch hour on weekdays, this place is filled with people from offices located nearby and can be difficult to find seats. I would advise to come early like maybe... More

There are so many stalls here and price is very reasonable. Don't miss the curry chicken noodles on ground floor and the fish soup on 2nd floor. Of course, many many more...almost a 5 star rating!
