Maxwell Food Centre is a few meters from our hotel. The place is clean and the ventilation is just alright. Almost all Asian cuisines are being offered. Chicken rice is very popular. The prices are reasonable and affordable.

We actually want to try their famous Hainan Chicken Rice but it was sold out so we tried the alternative stall. The price was a bit higher than other hawker food complex and the taste was average.

I’ve been coming to Singapore for many years and never leave this island without enjoying food at this hawker center. Especially the Hainanese Chicken Rice really deserves this honor. Many others are all-in-one here. A real Asian experience.

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.

Best to walk around and look at each store. I just walked until I saw a place that I liked the look at.

Definitely chicken & rice! Or pork with rice :) I love rice so... We were always there at non-peak times so we didn’t encounter any really busy times so can’t really say which times are best.

If you come out of the m hotel main door turn and go right and walk about 2/3 blocks you will need to cross the road to the left and you will see it in front of you .
