“Definitely on the To Do List”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Yes some say that this place is Touristic and that others are slightly cheaper but this place is a must to go and see and of course eat. It's an outside food court with every conceivable local dish to be found. Find a seat, order loads of fun dishes. New ones for me were Stingray and also Curried Fish Head. Cold beers, what else does one need. Make sure you allocate one evening for there.

“Try the Porridge stall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Tried the porridge stall today located in the middle column of the food centre. Can't remember the name of the stall but it has a red signage. The porridge was excellent for the price - had the pork and century egg one. Very clear and they are generous with the ingredients. Give it a try!

“Local Food Delights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Good variety of food available.
Good to come after the lunch crowd from the offices in the vicinity.In the evening, there a are lot of stalls that serves good local food.
Great claypot rice/chicken rice and congee.
I like the idea of this hawker center in the cross junction of old Chinatown and in the middle of the modern skyscrapers in the vicinity.
