These food centres (previously called Hawker centres, but they don't actually "hawk" anymore) are a great way to experience local flavor without having to spend a fortune! There are food centres located all over Singapore, but this one has the famous chicken rice stall with...More

This was rated one of the best hawker centres, unfortunately I was not impressed. Not much choice and the quality of the food was very mediocre.

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
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.

Definitely chicken & rice! Or pork with rice :) I love rice so... We were always there at non-peak times so we didn’t encounter any really busy times so can’t really say which times are best.
