We visited three times there during the stay. Easy access from MRT Chinatown. This place is perfect for easy, low price yummy food to feel full. When you go for lunch I would like to recommend to avoid lunchtime as it is full of office workers... They put their pocket tissues onto the tables to secure! 出張期間中3回行きました。チャイナタウンの駅からも近く、オフィスからも徒歩で行ける好アクセス。安くて美味しくてお腹いっぱいになるには最高の場所。どの店行ってもあたりでした。 ただ、お昼時間中は周辺のオフィスビルで働いてる人でほぼ埋まっているので、時間帯をずらすことをおすすめします。大抵ポケットティッシュでテーブルが先取りされてること多し。

The first thing that stands out about Maxwell food centre is the variety. Great food reflective of the Singapore culture and history at equally excellent prices. Don't expect fancy service but it's efficient, prompt and matches what you'd expect to pay for. Maxwell is located in a central location for work and for sightseeing.

After a short walk through various street vendors and down by the temple we were there. Its not... More

Many stalls inside a big building, very cheap and, usually, good Asian food. The locals recommend mainly chicken rice. I liked specially freshly pressed fruit juices for 2-3 S$.

My fiancé grew up eating from this establishment, so I was very keen to check it out. So much in fact that we raced here during our 3 hour layover in Singapore... Let me say first up that we went there on New Year's Day, so not all stalls were open and we missed out of the world famous Chicken... More

We arrived around 20:00 and found already most establishments closed. The ones that were open provided great quality food at very reasonable prices. The thing with hawker food is that the taste is usually excellent with all the fresh ingredients and sauces, however it's mainly based on "simple" ingredients meaning that it will mainly be the cheaper cuts of meats...

If you want a good hawker experience then this is the place. There are just rows and rows of eateries to choose from, it's hard to decide what to eat. It can get very crowded and hot but there is good seating. The food is cheap, tasty and satisfying. Not far from Chinatown (easy walk).

The food was amazing ... had a superb green curry... Everything looked pretty good and appeared to be cooked fresh/to order... The only problem is that the fans are not even vaguely able to keep the centre cool... it is REALLY hot and sweaty... Definitely worth a visit though - but don't expect to be able to go back to...

Tons of options, the chicken rice, as expected , is exceptional. But there are more options, which are not only Chinese on the closer row to Maxwell. Nice Juice selection and fruit stands. And most important from all for 10 SGD you can eat a full meal with desert, and it will be one of teh best you had in... More
