Best hawker centre to check out

Retaining the layout of hawker centres from the past, this is the last surviving one where you will get a taste of what it is like to have a meal like a local in the old days. If you do not mind the long wait for a table, it is a great place to sample local street food like fried... read more

Standards have dropped over the years. I would have chosen newton hawker over chomp chomp. Would advice to go there via public transport. Driving is discouraged due to the lack of parking spaces

This place is well known amongst locals and is often the first stop for visitors wanting to taste a variety of good local fare all in one spot. The food here is exceptional, if a little repetitive. The stalls have obviously not been curated as you'll have multiple stalls selling subtle variations of the same thing. Grilled seafood, chicken wings,... More

Used to be really good but not anymore. The reputation covers up lots of the flaws. Food not as good as before but prices are so much more expensive, compared to the same portion which you can get elsewhere. Repetitive stalls selling same dishes as per other food centres. Ventilation wasn't good either

This is the most authentic hawker places in Singapore, extremely busy fast turnover of hundreds of people every night, the smells are fantastic as is the food, the noise of the people and the food being cooked is awsome. Better if you go in a group then once you have grabed a table - no easy task - you can... More

Chomp chomp is one of those places where you thought might be a good place to catch up with friends but upon arriving, you would remember why you haven't met here for a long time. Firstly, the seating is very limited. If your entourage is more than 4 people, good luck on getting seating together. Next, the ventilation is quite... More

We were lucky enough that we were staying in Serangoon Gardens so it was our local! We walked down there a couple of times to eat and everything we tried was fantastic. I'd especially recommend the sambal stingray, it's spicy but delicious! Sugarcane juice is another singaporean staple and they make it fresh in front of you and serve it... More

Been here twice now and have loved each experience. Be adventurous and try everything! Chicken wings and sambal stingray were our favourites from our last visit and can't wait to go back. It always seems really busy so you just need to loiter around and wait for a table. It's quite smoky too from all the cooking but I think... More

A visit to Singapore wouldn't be the same without a meal from Chomp Chomp. Always busy and parking a problem, but we prefer to take away and enjoy. Love the food, everything tastes fantastic and very reasonably priced.
