On a recent family visit to Singapore, it was decided of course we would visit the hakwer centres. What they offer is amazing Asian food at very affordable prices. They are simple but impressive. They also have a great atmosphere with tourists and locals mixing....More

The place is right in business district. If you are there during work day lunch hour, getting a table is a nightmare. The place will be full of people who work around the area.

We love hawker food and attended midday Monday. Very busy with workers given its CBD location. Plenty of choices, relatively clean, great prices.

Singapore is well-known for its street food, and by far this is the best place to enjoy traditional food. Located in the heart of the business district of Telok Ayer, this National monument is a real gem. It's an old market with a nice little...More
