    This is a hawker centre representing well the diverse Singapore hawker fare that is frequented by both locals & tourists who want to experience the UNESCO hawker food culture of Singapore. Comparing to Lao Pa Sat that is too touristy & pricey, Maxwell Food centre houses many well known stalls amongst them is Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken rice which has been listed in the Michelin guide & recommended by the late celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain. There are several chicken rice stalls competing head to head with Tian Tian, eg Ah Tai Hainanese Chicken rice operated by a previous employee of Tian Tian; the chain stall 东风发 Tong Fong Fatt & Heng Heng. There are many other things to go for besides chicken rice, 石年pig trotter rice; fried oyster cake; Hum Jin Pan; beers etc.

    As soon as you arrive you have the big decision. What will I eat tonight? It’s busy at night but you can find a table if you keep looking. It’s warm inside but there are fans on the ceiling. We ate here twice. Good value and very tasty meals. Worth a visit for sure.

    Great low key atmosphere. Get in and get a table and try all the foods whilst having a beer. We tried Satay 7 & 8, the one that everyone reviews about. It was good. The line is long, but it’s efficient. We waited 40mins for it (we were warned prior). However we also tried satay 6 for comparison, and I have to say that we both agreed we preferred 6’s offerings more. We had chicken and prawn at both. Beef from 7&8 too (which we really liked). But the prawns were more tender and juicier, and overall better char on both meats from 6. They also had a nice spicy chilli dip in addition to the satay sauce.

    We enjoyed shopping for local and native ingredients, such as serunding and dates and chillies and spices and kropek. I also love the food and drinks stalls. Some of the locals are also helpful, an auntie helped us talk to the vendor that we need a box. Also the market is fairly clean, and is also crowded probably because it’s noon time. Overall experience: very good, and will comeback there on next visit.

    Used to go to Lucky Plaza every visit to Singapore, but that was before Covid. Now it’s a shell of its former self. Tired looking and half stores closed, only good if you like Filipino food. Plenty of options there.

    We found numerous shops, money changers with good rates and massage places to explore in the People's park complex. The food court down the bottom offers value for money and we ate there a couple of times trying different foods each time. A great place to explore right near Chinatown.

    Despite having stayed several times at adjacent Hotel Jen Tanglin, we had never explored this relatively small ( for Singapore) shopping mall. We were pleasantly surprised. There are a number of restaurants, fast food eateries and coffee shops offering a wide selection of meals, drinks and some deliciously looking bakery items. The Mall is far more than that with a number of specialist shops and a supermarket. Recommended is a shop called Scoop, selling all manner of dried groceries including a superb selection of pasta, seeds, teas, chocolate and many other items. For children, there were several toy shops. Clothes, books and gifts are all available here.
    Highly recommended.

    I could have spent a couple of hours exploring the fresh food stalls full of fish, fruits, herbs and spices. The warren of shops provide a heady experience of aromas, alas, other family members just found it too smelly.

    This was a fun place to spend time and look, although buying was not an option due to our traveling. It certainly made me wish that it was in my home city, especially for the seafood.

    Charity thrift shop that is well lighted, clean and air-conditioned. Items start from $1, good selection of clothings (women, men and kids), knickknacks and well stocked kitchen and homewares. They carry branded items, vintage and cute stuff too. Always a treasure hunt.

    I have sent my boys to the shop when they needed to pick jackets for their grad nights. 100% success rate! Ask the volunteers on duty and they will help you pick items that suit you too.

    They have their IG and FB page that highlight latest interesting items but always best to visit in person. I have picked out cute stuff that are not showcased on their socials. My regular haunt for sure.

    Good to know that shop is mostly helmed by volunteers and proceeds goes towards helping the disadvantaged.

    We enjoyed a walk along Smith Street, still the shops and eateries but on this occasion, there were no stalls. A shop owner told us that the Government will be upgrading the area and in particular the row of shophouses and adjacent pedestrian mall. On past visits we have enjoyed a variety of snacks from the hawker stalls and apparently the Government's object is to " inject a vibrancy and have an array of food and beverage offerings and new dining concepts reflecting Singapore’s multicultural identity."

    The interior design is trendy & chic! The vibe is restaurant is fun & vibrant. Great place for friday night out with friends before hitting the clubs! The food hits the right spot and the Pisco Sour is addictive! Most of the starters are really nice like the Quail, halloumi and King fish Collar. For the the main course the beef cheeks is my firm favorite. :D Loved the caramel crème brûlée but the crowd favorite seemed to be the apple crumble.

    The largest vintage and lifestyle market in Singapore, held on the first weekend of the month, Friday to Sunday. Should have about 100 vendors, sheltered and airconditioned. It has vintage items, vinyl, clothings (vintage, new, batiks and more), local makers and crafters. Great place to interact with locals and vendors do change monthly. Hence, never the same experience everytime.

    Vendors are friendly and not pushy. There are more collectors or makers sharing their passion. If you are looking for an authentic vintage and craft market in Singapore with variety, this is the place to plan around your visit.

    The market is in the middle of the Katong / Joo Chiat district. Short walk to many local food (Katong Laksa, KimChoo dumplings), Peranakan shophouses as well as many cool cafes.

    My friend brought me here for the chicken rice. There are 2-3 chicken rice stalls, we went to the one at the corner. Good and cheap comfort food
