This was a bucket list item for me. Seen it on many travelogue shows on TV and always wanted to go experience the street food side of Singapore for myself. I was worried that perhaps I was over hyped on it and would be let down by the reality. Short answer - NO. We even queued for the real deal... More

Tin Tin sells out quickly and has the longest lines. We went at 11:30 to beat the lunch rush. Delicious! Bring your own napkins. Best meal ever for 3.50

This hawker centre has quite a dated feel. A nice place to feel like a local but the food wasn't great and we found much nicer hawker places a short walk away.

a lot is written about this hawker center as its one of the most convenient for tourists. however, although its just a typical hawker center as can be found all over singapore that also means its no slight and thankfully its as authentic as any other. i really have to salute the management on the variety of the food stalls,...

This hawker center had everything we wanted. We had the Hainanese chicken, some great juice, and overall just had a fun Singaporean meal.

For an authentic Singapore experience eat at one of the hawker centers. The Maxwell Hawker Center was excellent even though we went around 10AM. The great thing about these centers is that you get to buy lots of different foods. For our visit, we ordered freshly squeezed dragon fruit and soursop juices, Singaporean carrot cake, and prawn noodles. Everything was... More

After asking around it was clear that if we wanted a sample of genuine Singaporean food we should head to Maxwell Road hawkers market and it didn't disappoint, we arrived at lunch and it was very busy, always a good sign in my opinion, all table were occupied but easy to share with others. the 40+ units selling food offered...

Tian-Tian (you have to trust Tetsuya Wakuda AND Anthony Bourdain don't you?) for perfect Hainanese chicken rice and pretty much any stall for the MOST delicious black carrot cake (turnip pancakes with sweet soy) Add a refreshing, fresh, sweet lime juice and marvel at how little money you've just spent. Food heaven. I still dream about this place...

Be sure if you eat here, try to be early and beat the lunch hour traffic. As this food court serves for working class and tourists, you will expect a big crowd. Don't be shy to ask if you can share a table with strangers, it's quite normal in Singapore. Food are priced at a relatively reasonable range. Try chicken... More

Since Singapore isn't the cheapest city to visit, the Hawker food court was the best place to have a cheap, affordable and at the same time really tasteful dinner. We had fun deciding what we wanted to eat and enjoyed every bit of it. It's also a good place to meet local people. We ended up at a table with... More
