Don't expect anything but a good local dish for a reasonable price. Actually is better then average but not very good so what do I chose? Well, very good, as the local cooks, mostly husband and wife I guess, do there best and fast.

Albert Food Center is a great breakfast joint. Come early when it's more relaxed & grab a seat on the sunny leafy side by Queen St. Rice Garden, 'great meals for a good cause,' is awesome.

Loved the Albert Centre, which was very close to where we were staying. The variety and extremely low prices was fabulous. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. It's a must! We tried a really wide variety of food. My kids loved seeing the roti being made. Be prepared for a queue for the fried carrot cake (btw, it's not made... More

Follow the lines and you won't be disappointed. Locals come here and it starts getting crowded around 11:45 for lunch hour. There's so many options, there must be something for everyone. The place is clean, but if you're asking yourself too many questions about how they clean then just stay away. I have yet to be sick from any of... More

This outdoor eating place is where the locals would go for them quick meals. Every stall cooks fresh ala minute and price is reasonable local price with so many choice!! It can be difficult to find a seat, avoid lunch time 12-2pm and 6-8pm. All stalls are self-service, so it's best to go with a Friend, one gets the food... More

Had to came here after thinking to try some local dishes and considering how near it is to our hotel (and how starving we were). Quite a lot of food stalls to choose and it was also quite crowded. It looks like this place is popular among locals since it was not easy to get an empty table to sit... More

If you find a long queue of people at any food stall, the food must be good. Place your order and they will cook on the spot and immediately serve you piping hot. Therefore food from the food centre are equivalent good, tasty and the price is reasonable.

Like so many of Singapore's hawker centers, some of the best food we had can be found here. And the cheapest, as you can buy a dish for $3-6 singaporean dollars, and drinks are $1-3.50. Hard to pick a favorite stall. All kinds of Asian food, many of it comfort food - Indonesian dishes, cantonese, chicken and rice, fishball soups,... More

I have my meals at albert centre quite often as it has a good selection of local delights. Fried carrot cake will always be in my order list. With Uncle's smiley face, though the queue and waiting time is kinda long, you will not feel any surge of anger at all. You get the best chwee kueh from the stall... More
