Tips for you

  • There are hundreds options for you to choose. Don't miss the duck noodle and dumpling.
  • Don't go before 11am as most stalls will be still setting up for lunch, but try to beat the lunch crowd.. this is a local fave for nearby workers.
  • There are some hawkers still open in the evening.
  • Don't be disheartened if you cant find an available table to sit at, you can sit at a table with others if the seats aren't taken. This is normal practice!
  • You may wait for a long time to get a seat.

“U.S. mall food courts wish they could be like this!” Anthony Bourdain ate here in the Singapore episode of "No Reservations", and he sampled Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, as did I, and I enjoyed it immensely. It is a flavorful combination of boiled spring chicken and white rice, with various dipping sauces available. There are many other stalls here serving Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, and other Southeast Asian cuisines, plus I had the chance to drink a kiwi/ dragonfruit juice combo, which was a great thirst quencher given the tropical climate! U.S. mall food courts pale in comparison to the Singaporean hawker centres, they are too bland and one-dimensional. There's not many places in this world where you can get a satisfying meal for under $10 USD, and even the food courts in Stateside malls charge more than that and don't give you the variety that a hawker centre does. Hawker centres are a must visit when you come to Singapore!

The place is spacious. Very crowded everyday. Not easy to find an unoccupied seat although hundreds are available here.
