A visit to Tiong Bahru Food Centre is like a visit to a 40 ring circus…absolute choas, but should not be missed. There really is something for everyone….excellent food, great stalls for shopping, wonderfully displayed new foods, fruits and vegetables. The prepared foods are wonderfully...fresh and with so many hawkers, there is bound to be some type of food that you’ll enjoy. Definitely work the visit.More

Always comfortable with so much seating and aired nicely by those massive ceiling fans. Just love so much variety of quality food at such a cheap price. Been away for a while but always visit first when back. Check out the murals on the outside.

This immaculate market provides a taste of old and new Singapore. More than just a market, this is a place where young and old catch up and eat with their friends/family.

Had a great time here when I went as part of a lunch break on a Hidden Gems Sightseeing Tour. Highly recommend trying the Hong Heng Fried Sotong Prawn Mee (Michelin rated 4 years in a row) as well as some rojak, steamed pork buns...and some soft Cheee Kueh (rice water cakes with Chai Ph or Radish / Turnips). Chicken rice also looked good but I didn't get to try it this time around. Cheap prices, clean facility and manageable lines. Seems to be more local-serving compared to Hawker centers closer to the city center. Highly recommend.More

Of all the food centres I’ve been to so far, this one has the biggest ceiling fans I’ve ever seen. A huge selection of food in a huge area. Many notables including soton noodles and hainan chicken rice. Just follow the queues.

This Hawker was great. It’s really comfortable and well spaced out and there is great cooling. The food is also super delish l. We went for dinner at around 6PM and there wasn’t a lot open so if you want heaps of choice go earlier....That being said we still managed to get a whole bunch of delicious variety happening. Highly recommended.More

After all the hype, found the hawker centre crowded, tables dirty, queues very long for the most popular stalls like char kway teow, boneless chicken rice, pig organ soup. Even the vegetarian stall had a queue, it moved fast though so ok, got myself the...white beehoon with cabbage, fried stuff and a yam roll, came up to $4, not really cheap and not too tasty either. Probably people had nowhere to go in Covid times with the school holidays, but the place has lost its world charm so no reason to go there as other hawker centres have better food and fewer queues eg Bedok Interchange where you can get the same brand chee kueh. Chicken rice in Singapore is good almost everywhere too.More

It is a very pleasant experience to dine here as it is very well ventilated and there are many stalls selling a wide variety of local food at reasonable price. After dining here, can walk around to enjoy the unique architecture of the flats in...Tiong Bahru by following the self guided heritage tour with its ten markers. The Food Centre is on level 2 while the very clean market is situated on level one. The market is also a great place to browse for the sheer variety of stuffs (both edible and non- edible) sold here.More

I was here on a weekday last week for lunch, my first visit in a while. We had burgers for lunch at Skirt and Dirt and then followed up with local dessert at Tian Tian Yuan. All quite tasty and inexpensive. Not too busy on...a weekday lunchtime.More

My hotel was a block away from the market. I went there pretty much every other day to grab a bite or a full meal. Cheep beer! It is one of the cleanest and most spacious food centers I went to while in Singapore. Totally...recommend it.More

Head out of central Singapore and into the 'burbs and you'll find the Tiong Bahru district, or more specifically the Tiong Bahru Hawker/Food Centre. The question is not what to have, as there is all sorts of Asian 'goodies' to be had here, it is...how much and knowing when to say 'enough'. Food stalls galore here, all clean, as is the centre, and for the quality and quantity of the food the price is good too. Enjoy :)More

Ting Bahru market and hawker center has been around for more than fifty years. If you would like to sample true Singapore lifestyle come here for breakfast. Prices here have remained the same for the last decade.

Take bus service 175 from Clementi Interchange to Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre. This famous food centre has been around for half a century. Level 1 is the wet market and L2 has about 50 food stalls selling hawker food. Here you get the...best noodle, chicken rice, tow kuah pok, char siew pau and a big variety of local food. The price is cheap and the quality is good. On Saturday morning there is usually a basker singing songs on L2. This is one hawker centre where the tourists come in droves.More

The one I mentioned is simply called Tiong Bahru Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice. If you google this phrase exactly, you'll see the michelin guide article about it.

Most stalls aren’t open, however, the seafood restaurant near the bus stop, just down from the bakery, is good and open Sunday night.
