Hawker Centres Directory

The hawker centre is the genuine Singaporean foodie experience - a large, sheltered but fairly open venue with ceiling or wall fans for ventilation. Food here is cheap and good - if it isn't, stalls go out of business very quickly. Be prepared to be spoilt for choice - a wide variety of local cuisines are offered at any of the hawker centres situated around the island.

The atmosphere at hawker centres is casual and generally raucous - find a place to sit, choose which stall(s) you want to patronise, order your food (from as many stalls as you like), and indicate your table number. For stalls with a self-service policy, you will have to wait for your dishes to be prepared before picking them up yourself. Payment is done when the food is served. Either way, you will end up with a feast before you to tantalise your tastebuds.
