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 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!
