I visited 4 Hawker centres. Tekka centre China town Maxwell and this one. This was by far the best. Much cleaner a lot more choice and much better quality than the others.

We love hawker food and attended midday Monday. Very busy with workers given its CBD location. Plenty of choices, relatively clean, great prices.

Singapore is well-known for its street food, and by far this is the best place to enjoy traditional food. Located in the heart of the business district of Telok Ayer, this National monument is a real gem. It's an old market with a nice little...More

Historic food market frequented by office workers and tourists. The building has an interesting history (see Wikipedia), go for Satay street but overall better (and cheaper) food can be found in other Hawkers e.g old airport road.

I am a huge satay fan and of the many places I’ve tried it in Singapore, Satay Stall 7&8 at Lau Pa Sat is by far my favorite. The marinade is great, the meat is well cooked and not too fatty and the peanut sauce...More
