Newton Food Centre
Getting there:Nearest MRT Station: Newton (NS21)
Operating Hours:Daily, 12pm - 2am
Description: Actively promoted by the Singapore Tourism Board as a place to sample Singaporean cuisine, Newton Food Centre has undergone a major revamp which mimics the style of nearby colonial houses. Interestingly, not only does it have 83 hawker stalls vying for your attention, there are spaces around for buskers to entertain and even designated areas for a mini flea market.
Some of the hawkers at Newton Food Centre might be seen touting tourists. This is illegal and largely frowned upon by the locals. Do not be intimidated by them or allow them to spoil your experience. Just smile and firmly reject them. The food here is worth the trouble :)
