Why locals love it

It's very simple. Singaporeans love food, and are willing to queue up and wait for food that is worth waiting for. Food centers are where you can find a melting pot of Singaporean local cuisine, which in itself is very varied, due to our multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society. The location of the market is also near the city.

Why you should visit it

Even though it is starting to become a well-know destination for travellers, you should not miss it as the food is truly good. Also, below the food centre is a "wet market", where all sorts of fresh produce from meat, fish and vegetables are sold. In fact my Australian friend who's a chef was so fascinated by this place that he refused to leave.

Special tip

Monday is a bad day to visit, as most stalls will be closed and resting, because there is no meat delivery on Mondays.
