Not far from Chinatown, we can also find Hong Lim Complex. Maybe it is not as famous as Chintown for tourist, but the food option is also vary with competitive price. Please be patient and pick your option slowly as you will find so many food kiosk in 1st level and 2nd level as well. Taste wise is not the... More

The stalls have been operating for more than 20 years and the quality of the food is excellent. I like the fish ball noodle and the Chinese pancake which has... More

This is possibly I daresay the best hawker centre in Singapore. Fantastic array of local food to choose from. Must trys include: Curry Chicken Noodles Both stalls on ground and second floor are good.

This was my first taste of a Singaporean Hawkers market, and when I walked out of the shopping centre into this alleyway I must admit that I was instantly hooked. These places are nothing short of awesome. The juice stalls are particularly enticing, offering fruit drinks that you could never even dream of elsewhere (such as mango and dragon fruit,... More

It's a massive complex and completely packed out during lunchtime. Get there early to avoid the big queues. I ordered the fish balls and meat balls from hong xing and waited approximately 15 mins in line. Well worth it though, fish balls were bouncy and the soup broth had a lot of flavour and seasoned well. The dish came with... More

This is one of 2 main food centres in Chinatown area for local food at reasonable prices. There are few nice good food stalls here; though limited & not as many as Chinatown complex food centre. And this place is so much smaller than Chinatown complex. The Curry chicken noodle on ground floor always have long queues. So is the... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
