If you head straight to level 2 of the Chinatown Complex you will find the best and cheapest food. We had steamed pork & leak dumplings which were to die for. Followed by chicken and rice and Japanese katsu udon. Washed down with freshly squeezed mango and pineapple juices. The food here is amazing and everything costs between $3-10. Definitely... More

Market, food market, hawker center... Shop and eat here, at your own peril!!!! So much to choose. Their pot sticker dumplings are awesome, so is the yutiao, 50s coffee shop, and the hong kong chicken stall too. This isn't a place you want to miss out on. There is so much to do, so much to buy and so much... More

We went to the wet market after Take Po for dim sum. We always buy the ytf stall which is very cheap. Also veg n fresh fishes here are cheap too. Fresh flowers are reasonably fresh n lasting. Not crowded on a Good Friday morning

Although it took us a few walks around the complex to decide what to eat we had an enjoyable lunch with lots of variety. We sampled fresh stir-fried noodles, duck, chicken, and of course some cookies and filled mini-cakes for dessert. Delicious and so reasonable! Downstairs the wet market was fascinating - can't wait to try the crab spice and... More

The popiah skin is made at the shop and it is very nice and fresh. The fillings are also delicious where they are crispy and nice. There is always a queue at the shop and I will recommend this shop. The shop is located to the right just after the staircase.

I would like to recommend this hawker centre to all tourists. They have almost all the local food from Singapore. Cheap and very good. They have very good Claypot rice, chicken rice and many others. Place can be a little dirty during peak hours.

If you want a taste of local food and know what the local eats for their three meals this is one of the place in Singapore you have to visit. There are food stalls on the second floor. In the basement there is a wet market which will be very interesting if you visit in the morning to see what... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
