Well, a location called "Food Street" in Singapore seems to deliver on exactly what it promises. If it has been cooked in the Far East, chances are you can probably find it on this road. From Peking Duck to Dim Sum; from Malaysian Curry to Korean Barbecue to Vietnamese Pho, you are spoiled for options when traversing Chinatown in Singapore.... More

The main reason I went there is to look and try the famous Hainanese Chicken Rice. The food experience was great, the prices were reasonable and the place was... More

Centralized street-style food vendors. Basically Chinese culinary spectrum. It is clean and neat. However the food is pretty much standard and still behind the famous Jalan Semarang food street in Medan, Northern Sumatra, Indonesia.

We were visiting Chinatown and walked into Chinatown Food Street. It is clean and lots of tables and chairs to cater for large crowds. Food is delicious but could be pricey being tourist attraction.

This place is really cool. Its outdoors but has really high roof in case it rains. Its a hawker centre but with a bit more panache than some of the others. Quality of food is always good and the choice is awesome, plus the Tiger ladies keep you topped up with cheap (for Singapore) beer.

Watch the pricing at Stall 18! It's a rip off. Same food further up. Just as fresh but significantly cheaper!!!!! Wish we'd looked around a bit more.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
