“Tasty Cheap and Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Nestled between towering apartment buildings the Food Centre has the feel for 'real' Singapore and so close to the Financial centre. The food is hawker style, fresh and delicious. You can also buy good ipad covers there.

“Excellent Fried Kway Teow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

The fried kway teow is not too oily here. Others can be heavy with oil and thus reduce the experience of this fine dish.

“Reasonable price in CBD area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

Good choice of hawker stalls within this market. Price of food is even cheaper than outskirt hawker price.
You can get S$2.50 for a package of nasi lemak with chicken drumstick plus few other dishes added, and there are at least 3 stalls selling them.
Yong tau foo here is pretty good and many choices to select, with good chilli sauce. Peanut ice-kachang dessert is worth trying, difference from others.
However, to avoid lunch time crowd and the heat, better to be there before noon.
They are closed on Sunday. So better be there during weekdays. Also don't expect this place to be air-con hawker centre standard cleanliness.
