There are many many different stalls here. Hence, the quality varies. When you get a table, stalls selling seafood will pass you their menus. Ignore if you are not interested. Choose what food you would like and remember to give the stall your table number. Some of the food is top quality stuff, so choose wisely! Furthermore, the food centre looks much better after the recent renovation.

At first glance, it's a nice place to get a variety of local fares in one location, with nice open air seating.
But it's a bit of a tourist trap, with some of the food being too expensive for local standards. I do have some friends who come from overseas and hear from word of mouth to come here, but for the same variety of food, I'd prob take them somewhere else to get cheaper food, such as Chomp Chomp or even East Coast.

But if you do choose to eat there, some of the local delicacies to order include: BBQ Sambal Stingray, BBQ Chicken Wings, Hokkien Mee, Carrot Cake and sugarcane to wash it down.

What a selection - food in Singapore is very safe to eat as very strict guidelines apply. Great selection of food in Hawkers markets. Find a table and note the number on table. Order and pay for food from the many different little food stalls providing table number - When food or drinks are ready stall worker brings to table.

took a few Aussies for dinner to sample the array of local and regional fare available.
A bit of a disappointment unfortunately.
