Curry chicken noodles on 2nd flr is good. Fish soup bee hoon on ground floor is better. Fish ball (handmake) on ground floor second lane is best!

I had made this trip just to try out Curry Chicken Noodles, Heng Kee and Ah Heng. I tried both the stalls' curry noodles and each had their own flavors. Heng Kee's chilli and curry has a heavier tone while Ah Heng is lighter on the taste buds. Both stalls are catered for different taste preference and there is no... More

There are numerous stalls selling authentic hawker food as well as a wet market in Hong Lim Complex. The nearest MRT station is Chinatown, accessible via the NEL and the Downtown lines.

Crayfish & Prawn Hor Fun. It's the only reason I come to this hawker center, and I've been enjoying it for 6 years, even when it moved temporarily during complex renovations. By the way, it's now $8, and usually barely enough to satiate, so not your cheapest hawker meal. Fresh seafood, peeled/cut for ease of eating. The noodles in gravy... More

This food court is under a residential housing area. There is a wet market on the ground floor and cooked food stalls on the ground and first floors. Many of the local food venues have been penetrated by mainland Chinese migrants. Here there are older local stall owners who prepare and cooked the food and u are able to taste... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
