“Not for tourists - If you want to experience local food, go to stall that has marked price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

This is a local Hawker food hall. Lots of local food choices. We didn't see any tourists there. We ventured there because of a recommendation from a Hong Kong magazine. This stall - "Mattar Road Seafood Barbecue" - is famous for Chilli crab, White/black pepper crab. The food is very good, but we got charged tourists price. There is no menu. You tell them what you want and they tell you the price. They charged us $6 for fry vege, $18 for 4 King prawns; while the average dish price in the hawker centre was $5 (which we found out later. We should have looked around first). The live crab is $35/kg, but they don't measure it in front of you.
The food is good (tasty and no stomach problem), but we feel like being ripe off. We ordered a Black pepper crab, king prawns, fry vege and some rice, it costed us about SGD$70. This costs about the same as the Japanese dinner we had the next day at Clark Quay !
If you are adventurous, do go and try the food. Make sure you go to a stall with a marked price menu.

“A good place to try out local food at cheap prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

The variety here is recommended to visitors who want to try a good variety of food. THere are some very good food here and some average. As a guide, most of those with queues are usually pretty good. I don't have any favourite stalls but in general I try to have chicken rice, fried carrot cake, rojak, chicken wings, seafood, nasi lemak. THe variety is endless. However do note that the centre is closed for cleaning about once a month for a few days. In such case, just hope on bus 16 or 33 to DUnman FOod court or Joo CHiat road for more eats!
