bad experience, some stall owner services totally dissatisfied, due to listen wrongly the price, I'm getting scolded by the stall owner, so disappointed to give 1 star. strongly and recommend my friends not come to this place cause your day will spoiled if you are unlucky choosing the "angry" stall.

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 two stalls in particular that are excellent. The char kuey teow at the Outram Park stall is excellent quite possibly the best in all of Singapore. There's another stall... More

No later than 3 pm or when everything is sold out before that. There's another that operate till late at around 8 pm which is just... More

The stall owner as well as the chef is a friendly gentleman. His motto in cooking is "must use your passion and courage". This is very a... More

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
