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.

A nice & clean environment with a massive selection of food choices. Prices are affordable but queues may be long for some of the popular stalls. List of recommendations include Lor mee (#02-23) , wanton noodles (#02-30), tiong bahru pau (#02-18), chwee kueh (#02-05) &...wang wang sugancane (#02-27).More

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

Until this visit, we’ve only used the food centre in the daytime, but this time we’ve visited in the evening and enjoyed delicious food. It closes at 10pm so it's wise to order food by 8.45pm as the limited number of stalls open in the...evening start to close by 9pm The stall we use in the evening is the Thai Kitchen #02-04. We also highly recommend the sugar cane juice from the drinks stalls. It’s a spacious area, and we can relax in pleasant conditions. Because it’s built around a courtyard it’s very quiet, with no traffic noise. Toilets are excellent and are cleaner and better equipped than many more expensive restaurants. The disabled receive good care. There are ramps when needed to bypass stairs, and 2 lifts. Disabled toilets are available as always in Singapore. There are seats with backs for those who find stools uncomfortable. Daytime or evening, give it a try for tasty food.More

From wet market of fruits,vegetables and poultry. U named it, they have it. You can feel the nostalgic look of a singapore. 2nd floor you can find good eating stall that sell authentic food during the 80s. You can taste the sincerity of each seller...how they prepared the food for you. Most importantly it come with a good price. When you are in singapore, you must come to tiong bahru market place. You can feel the difference from the place and the people. Cheers Adam SingaporeMore

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.
