The place is right in business district. If you are there during work day lunch hour, getting a table is a nightmare. The place will be full of people who work around the area.

We love hawker food and attended midday Monday. Very busy with workers given its CBD location. Plenty of choices, relatively clean, great prices.

Singapore is well-known for its street food, and by far this is the best place to enjoy traditional food. Located in the heart of the business district of Telok Ayer, this National monument is a real gem. It's an old market with a nice little...More

Historic food market frequented by office workers and tourists. The building has an interesting history (see Wikipedia), go for Satay street but overall better (and cheaper) food can be found in other Hawkers e.g old airport road.

Not far at all from Raffles MRT station - not the Raffles hotel. There are many "raffles" in Singapore, which can be confusing. I am not familiar with Montelupone (the only one I know is in Italy!).
