I think mainly locals frequent this food place. Find the longest line and you have found the best food. The chili crab was delicious and very messy. Have a sense of adventure and on't let the chaos of the place discourage you

This is a little out of the city centre but still easily accessible by 2 MRT stations (Mountbatten or Dakota), so is a worthwhile venture out even for non-locals. If you are game to rough it a little to try eating Singapore-style, then head to Old Airport Road Food Centre. Be adventurous and just order a whole bunch of dishes... More

We usually frequent Maxwell Road food centre, but Old airport road offers more variety in my opinion. Try the braised beef noodles. Located close to Dakota MRT. Next time we will try some further from the city centre.

This food centre is mostly visited by locals as it is not conveniently located near any tourist spot. Having said that, the quality is good and isn't overpriced. There are a few good ones, but I forget the names. Just join any long queues, and you are likely getting good food.

We met some Singaporean college students at our hostel in Jakarta and they recommended this place along with some dishes to try. We went on New Year's Day around 1 PM. Easy busy from our hostel in Chinatown (Google Maps works very well, just like the locals said it would). We also took the #7 bus from there right to... More

Singaporean friends took us here for some good quality seafood. Great chilli crab and more. Great value, packed with locals, not touristy.

Best place to eat in Singapore. This hawker centre has everything you want to eat in this country and it's located near Dakota MRT station. Chicken rice, chilli crabs, satay and more......

a gd place to go for local food as variety is expansive. But food can sometimes be inconsistent in some stalls especially during peak hours. N ventilation needs major improving.
