Great selection and variety

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... read more

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

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

Only the locals know about this place and it is the real deal hawker stall and is not a restaurant. The other stalls are also great. Hint for tourists is... More

Which is pretty cheap for Singapore. they have 2 levels of hawker goodness. and right in front are small shops where you can purchase dried goods, stationary and... More

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.

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.
