This is an iconic hawker centre. There are not a lot of tourists here, seems to be locals. Sure, their is the famous chicken rice stall but there are a lot of other excellent places also. This is a good place for breakfast - try...More

A must visit. An easy walk from our hotel, we were pleasantly surprised when we got there at around 8/8.30pm. Plenty of stalls still open although some of the more popular ones had run out of food and closed before we arrived. We got hainese...More

This is another good hawcker centre in the downtown area of S'pore. Very clean and lots of different and reasonably priced food from across the region. Definately go there if in the Chinatown area.

Try their butty $5 and $10 beef stew! Superb and tasty! ❤️❤️ Maybe salty for some on the butty because of bacon as well. Just tell them less salt will do. 👍

Anthony Bourdain. RIP. Fans try to roust the heat and humidity. Bathroom is acceptable. Not luxe. B y o napkins! Prices basically 3 dollars US ( 4 Singapore ) delicious stir fries. Share a table. The more people, the more you can taste.

The advantage of working so close to Maxwell Food Centre is that I get to save a lot on my lunch budget during the week. My only complaints - and they're not really complaints, TBH - would be that because you are literally faced with...More

This is an open air hawker center about the same distance from the Chinatown MRT station, the Outram Park MRT station, theTelok Ayer MRT station, and the Tanjong Payar MRT station. In other words, unless you are in the neighborhood, it is not as convenient...More

MRT stop very close and walk to street market styled food hall . Very popular and night stalls even busier. Wide selection of food and even get a beer or wine from separate venders. Recommend Dumplings and chicken rice.

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.

Some stalls Start to close up around 9.30, however plenty are open until 10.30 or after depends on level of trade, really slows down after 11.00.

Best to walk around and look at each store. I just walked until I saw a place that I liked the look at.

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.
