Delicious traditional hawker food at very reasonable prices. Choose authentic specialties from the many stalls. Each one specialises in a few tasty dishes, cooked fresh to your liking. It is hot (it's Singapore after all) and you have to line up but it's SO worth it.

No trip to Singapore is complete without stopping here for chicken rice and other hawker specialties. Good atmosphere and cheap prices -- so if you don't like something, just order something else. Authentic lunch or dinner for less than $10.

Good food in Singapore doesn't have to be expensive and here we easily had our best dishes of all Hawker Centres. There is a fantastic variety of Asian cuisines from Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese to Singaporean which made it difficult to choose. We settled on a Thai place that cooked the dish in front of us on steaming hot woks, charges... More

After you have taken in the sights of Chinatown drop in for lunch at the Maxwell Food Centre. It is all good, busy with locals, and mighty good value. When you are looking for a change from the Hainanese Chicken Rice, try stall #72 the no (English) name venue for $3/4 wonton noodle (dry noodles, wonton, kai lan, sliced BBQ... More

We wanted to experience the "hawker centre" culture in Singapore and weren't disappointed. The food is gloriously cheap and oh so tasty! We tried the hainanese chicken rice from Tian Tian. The drumstick is the nicest part of the chicken. It's worth shelling out an extra dollar to get the drumstick. We also tried the signature chicken curry noodles from... More

We thought we should try "hawker food".... having heard so much about it. It's true. .. It's cheap. It's generous portions. It's sometimes fresh. However. ... you should know the cons as well. ... It's hot It's crowded. It's long lines. It's disjointed timing. It's not the cleanest. No napkins. Try it at least once. Like me. ..that might be... More

I had the classic Chicken rice at the Haivaneese stand, and it was simple and delicious :) and cost only 5 sgd :) a little crowded, but people generally share the tables, so don't be afraid to ask for a seat.
