Cheap as chips - very like street food

This is a really interesting place to go to, dirt cheap and just great to observe. We had satays and drinks and the food was very good. A lot of the shops close by 8pm, but you can still get lots of types of food and beverages.

I bet this the only chicken rice stall that is not in blue signboard. Indeed the special one, chilli is spicy and rice is fragrance enough to have additional portion. Soya sauce in the tender chicken is what we called perfection. A Must Try in this food centre

A more tourist friendly and thus expensive HC. No reason to go to Maxwell if you're not looking to pose next to Anthony Bourdaine. It's not bad, just very average in food and maybe 10-20% more expensive than less known places in the neighbourhood. More drunk Australians than in any other HC I've visited.

There is a restuarant inside this Hawker Centre famous for Chicken rice. The queue was long, I ordered a whole chicken, vegetable and few portion of rice.

My office building is located in front of this hawker centre here is an everyday affair. There are a number of well known stalls here offering great selection of food. However, the lunch time crowds and long queues are a put-off.

Located in the city, this centre is great during the day but also very convenient for late-night suppers. Try the chicken porridge where each order is cooked individually. Other stalls offer a range of snacks, noodles, hot/cold drinks -- enough choice for supper although not all stalls are open.

Have been there some times, have a lot of kinds of street food. Always crowdy. Quite clean. Not expensive. Last year Gordon Ramsey was here to compete with the best noodle maker of Chinatown. Worth a visit. .

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.
