Stopped in for a quick lunch, pork and rice. Not as cheap as the traditional hawkers markets (in Chinatown Complex down the road) but entirely edible and plenty of room to sit and soak up the atmosphere.

As a Singaporean myself, I love dining at street food outlets! The Chinatown Food Street is one of the most popular in Singapore at a very central location, easily accessible by the MRT. You find everything about Singapore's signature food here: fried oyster, fried prawn mee, BBQ seafood, satay & more! My favourite store is the BBQ stall which serves... More

Delightful food market with tastes and smells that may tempt most of us. Highly recommend trying a little different from other stalls, then it is difficult to single out a singel one. Reasonable prices and much good to choose from. You need that privilidge one to two visits.

This is not your jumbo or no signboard chains, but it has the same dishes at less size and price. Just fetch a seat and order your food there.

If you want to try some decent Chinese food as well as soak up some atmosphere, then definitely go here one evening. You can get a decent meal for 10-15 dollars per person and cold drinks are available too. There are places to sit and eat, but they can fill up.

The mith of street food not being good quality and very bad hygiene practices, is blown out the water here. Because as far as I know, and can see, they all have to have a certificate up to be able to trade. Excellent, because of that the food is really good and none to pricy. Just walk about get a...

We came here for a walk, and stumble upon a nice dessert: Durian Snow Flake. The price is SGD9.90, but it's a tasty one. Great!

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.
