The concept of Hawker Center is Uniquely Singapore. From the old day of push carts street food, now they are all housed in a nice, clean and hygienic complex.

You can order food from the various different stalls and enjoy them together with your family friends. However, Adam Road Food Center seem to have more Muslim food selection. And the prices are friendly on your wallet too !

Must order are Roti John and the Indian Mee Goreng ! Yummy !

First, the atmosphere. The circular layout of this food place gives it a warm and cozy ambience. It is a breeze to go round to see the local food selections of Malay, Indian, Western and Chinese fare. My personal favourite is the stall selling prawn noodles. The soup stock is rich tasting without being cloying or overly "prawny", the prawns fresh and the pork slivers tender enough. The chilli powder (optional) gives added punch. There seems to be a perennial queue there. Over at the Malay section are a couple of stalls selling nasi lemak (coconut milk-flavoured rice and eaten with various side dishes such as fried chicken, fried fish, omelette etc). There's always queues there, too. If you have space in your stomach there's satay (barbecued meat on skewers), Indian rojak, braised roast meats, fried noodles and grilled seafood, among others. To wash all these down, there's fresh fruit juices and sugar cane juice. Try and avoid lunch and dinner hours. It gets rather crowded, and if you drive, may find it hard to get a car park space. And if you do get one, make sure you place enough parking coupons as the parking wardens frequently come by to issue parking tickets to cars that overstay their parking times.

Expect long queues for one or two of the better-known stalls such as the nasi lemak and the mee soto stalls. But otherwise, the rest of the stalls are just average. Look out for drink touts.

Adam Road Food Court is the place where you can find some of the local staples at reasonable prices at any time of the day and night. Stalls may change their offerings according to the time of the day. It is a great place whether you go there for a local (predominantly Indian muslim or Malay) breakfast (nasi lemak, mee siam, mee rebus, carrot cake, lontong etc.) or whether you go there for supper (mee goreng, bistik, mutton soup with bone marrow etc.). If you are familiar with the dishes, you will see that e.g. Selamat Datang serves among the best Mee Rebus (yellow noodles in a thick spicy gravy) in the whole of Singapore. IMO Siti Nur Liyana further has one of the best Mee Siam (thin noodles in a spicy broth) and Tahu Goreng (fried tofu with spicy sauce). I also prefer its Nasi Lemak to the ones served by the two famous stalls specializing in the dish. Visitors will recognize these stalls from the long queues that form in front of them. Siti Nur's Nasi Lemak will cost you a fraction of the waiting time and - as I said - it is IMO better but made with normal rice rather than the Basmati rice the others use. Adam's Delight serves a good mee goreng - try the one made with bee hoon (thin rice noodles) and tell them to add plenty of chili for taste.

I took my family to Adams Road Food Center after reading the reviews. It was very average for everything. First, selection wise, 40% of the restaurant shops were closed (Wednesday lunch?) What's up with that? Going out of business? Also, compared to variety of food we've been tasting, it seemed slightly below average or at best average. Having said that, we really enjoyed mango juice, sugar cane juice, and lime juice. I think we drank at least 10 fruit juice for family of 4. The juice was good! I would not go out of your way to visit this food court, but if you're in the area, it might be worth your visit at least for once.
