Came here on 1 March 2017 eagerly looking forward to having the chee kueh but was surprised with signboards and construction boards. Place is closed till May 2017 for renovation/upgrading works.

We wanted to eat at a food center, typical of Singapore. We had references of some bibs gourmand and we ended up choosing this one because it seems the least touristy. We ate the mee and the chicken that were recommended, are reasonable. What I really liked was the sugar cane juice squeezed to order.

Wanting to visit a typical Hawker Market while in Singapore and didn't know where to begin . . . . I read a lot of articles and asked a lot of people, but in the end, we had a guide who took us along to the Tiong Bahru Market - away from the tourist fray. We entrusted him with $20... More

This is one place that I will always visit with my family for wide variety of food choices available in there. Wanton Mee, chicken rice, oyster omelette, etc. You name it, all the Singapore heritage Hawkers food are found here. But of course you must k now which stall serve the best, it takes time to hunt and trial

We took advice and went to the stall with the longest queue. The fish ball noodles were delicious and well worth the wait. Followed it with a cup of Kopi. This market is an easy 10 minute walk or one stop bus ride from the local MRT station.

I like to come here for breakfast and buy flowers on Saturday. There are many famous hawker food in Tiong Bahru market like the wonton mee, Lor mee , Chwee kueh and fish ball noodles. There's an Uncle performing on sat too and that provide some kind of entertainment whilst dining.

The place is loaded with aisles of restaurants , all local food . Lots of CHIU chow authentic food , such as oyster omelette , the dim sum stuff with sticky rice or green bean . You can easily spend a couple of hours and leave without feeling hungry

Staying in Tiong Bahru

Neighbourhood Profile
Tiong Bahru
Home to both local families and transient expats, Tiong Bahru is a fascinating mix of tradition and youthful creativity. Its status as a conservation area ensures that this little hub has charm and heritage on display at every corner, while the 1930s art deco architecture provides a glimpse of days gone by. Stock up on fresh tropical fruits at the wet market, browse high quality literature and children’s books, shop for interesting gifts and local fashion, or munch on bargain-priced hawker food as the aroma of frying noodles and fresh-brewed coffee wafts through the air. Cap your day with a massage and a latte, a glass of wine, or a pain au chocolat from one of the many busy bakeries. An afternoon in this vibrant and beautiful neighbourhood is not to be missed.
