When one enters, one is hit by all the aroma of spices and local food fare. All the colors and the melange of cultures together.
In the wet market, vegetables and fishes are all so fresh. Here is the place for a visitor to Singapore to have an insight into the real local life of Singapore. Something not to be missed

being an indian myself, i expected a lot of ethnicity and aroma in this market located in the heart of little India but was totally disappointed as i just could not find anything interesting here. Only clothes stores and hawker stalls around.

Allahuddins.
Always visit when in Singapore. Must be the best hawker centre biryani on the island. I usually arrive before 11.30. After that time the queue is out the centre as locals arrive to order their lunchtime takeaway meal.
You will have no problem finding the stall. Just look for the longest queue.

Couldn't find the entrance for quite a while. The place looks like a shipping warehouse.

busy, bustling noisy and full of local life. We had the Paratha, egg and onion and a garlic one with a little mutton curry and lentil curry. absolutely wonderful as always.
Very friendly stall holders eager to please and help along those who are obviously not locals. We regularly get warned to "watch your wallet around here" by the taxi drivers when in Little India, which is a fair warning anywhere, but having said that I have never experienced or seen any problems. (which doesn't mean they don't exist)
This still one of my favourite parts of Singapore
