“Great local food!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

I love the food centres in Singapore! The Chinatown food centre is no exception. A great variety of dishes to choose from. So cheap. The most I ever paid for a meal is $4.00.
Find the stall with the longest line of locals and get in the queue....just order whatever they're having and you can't go wrong. A great way to broaden your food horizons.
I wish I could remember the stall no. for the dumpling lady I visited one morning. They were fabulous!
Even more interesting to me than the food court is the wet market downstairs. Do yourself a favour and explore the stalls of fresh local produce and spices etc.

“Good place to eat”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

The place is big and very lively. Great variety and great food. At some point I did't know what I was eating exactly. All the dishes I tried were great though. Strongly recommend the place. It is a great experience

“Cheap and interesting”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

As it was Chinese New Year Day a lot of the stalls were not open however the evidence of the previous night partying was very clear. Having cleared ourselves a table we then had dinner and drinks for three for about $12 AUD. Not exactly sure what we were eating but it tasted great. A 'must do' on a list of things to do in Chinatown.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Night markets in Asia can be chaotic and this is no different! Eating is great, the prices cant be beaten and a bargain by Singapore standards. I love ice kachang and it's about the only place to go, and for $S1.50 you cant complain! Small custard tarts are available for the same price. Communal seating and you can eat with the locals.

“Teeming with life”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

I've been to a number of "Chinatowns" and the one in Singapore is probably the most interesting, so far. Great food, all sorts of stuff to buy, and lots of decent places to stay. And for an area that's so crowded, it is surprisingly safe and clean. I was also in Singapore back in October 2013, and now I realize how incomplete that trip was because I never made a stop there that time.
