What to explore at Singapore Hawker Center Food Tour in Chinatown?

Meet your guide at Chinatown’s MRT Station, and set off on foot to the Chinatown Complex, Singapore’s largest hawker center, a type of open-air food market popular in Asia. The complex overflows with more than 220 stalls, but don’t be fazed — your knowledgeable local guide will introduce you to Singapore’s tastiest selections.

As you explore, try mouth-watering goodies such as Singaporean chicken rice and poh piah accompanied by ice-cold, freshly squeezed sugar cane juice. Hear about the origins of hawker centers in Singapore from your guide and while you chow down, feel free to ask any questions you have about what you’re tasting or how it’s prepared and cooked.

After your first fix of Singaporean cuisine, stroll through Chinatown and hear about the diverse mix of early migrants who settled here, bringing with them the religions celebrated in the temples you pass, including Hindu temples and mosques.

Take a break from the Singaporean heat and sample something cold and sweet in the shape of ice kacang: shaved ice and red beans laced with syrups, jellies and nuts.

Next, continue along Ann Siang Hill and, after viewing the last remaining water wells of Singapore, once used by residents for washing, cooking and drinking, walk to Telok Ayer — where the first Chinese immigrants landed — and visit the city's oldest Chinese temple.

Finish your Singapore food tour with some delicious teh tarik or kopi tarik; ‘pulled’ tea or coffee made with condensed milk and poured between two cups until it’s ultra-frothy. Team it with a tasty roti prate (pancake-like bread) and while you eat, glean some final insider tips from your guide on what else to sample during your stay in Singapore.

Afterward, walk back to MRT station, where your food tour comes to an end.

Nice time with Singapore Hawker Center Food Tour in Chinatown. I booked this walking tour online and I was quite satisfied . we ate some dishes in the food center and I have to say that the food was amazing. Chinatown was quite crowded at that time. But the tour guide did great job. He was very careful, attentive and friendly. Overall, that was nice tour.
