Singapore Restaurants: 946 reviews and 1,240 photos


It's not a restaurant only. There are many kopitains in this hawker cantre. And it is said that this hawker cwntre is the best in Singapore. Every weekend, it starts to be crowded since 9am, and remains crowded until late in the evening. You cannot find many tourist here, this place is more for the local,but still attractive.
On the basement, there is a traditional market. You can see vendors selling and customers buying. What's the highlight is there are a lot of fish, frog and some seafood alive awaiting for their destiny.

Favorite Dish: Yun Tao Fu...A local Cantonese cusine, you can have noodles (dry or with suop) and many kinds of fish balls. What's more, there are also a lot of nasi lamak, which is my favorite Malayan dish. Have some cool Milo or tea is also nice, if you don't like heat. Yio-tiao and soy bean milk are traditional Chinese breakfast, but here in Singapore enjoyed by all races. If time allows you, buy yourself a box of deep fried little fish, it is very nice whether you eat solely or with rice.
