    Bustling w business early in the day. Tried three different dishes and all tasty. Lines weren’t bad because it was earlier in the day. The place is kept clean and only about 75 percent open.

    Great Satay Sticks! We were staying nearby and walked down to this street. They kept the beers coming and we enjoyed a mix of satays. 7 & 8 were the busiest, but all were keen to serve. I didn’t like having dirty old menus shoved at me from all directions however kinda felt sorry for the quiet stalls once I settled into the atmosphere.

    Singapore is known for its Hawker Centers and this may be the most famous do to its appearance on Crazy Rich Asians. We spent the morning visiting temples and shopping in Chinatown. While it was a couple of blocks we simply felt we had to visit. I got chicken and rice and my wife got the dumplings. The food was great and we enjoyed the ambiance as well. The architecture is impressive and as a bonus the center is on Robinson Road for all the Robinsons out there like myself.

    We came here to look at the food displays which were a little interesting. I do not recommend this shopping area as your number one destination in town.

    I was interested to try something bit different, so I headed to this market in Geyland not far away from the East Coast park. I haven't tried Malaysian food before and I didn't want to order a particular dish, so I just asked the old lady about each ingredient and decided there and then. I enjoyed the experience very much, the only thing you should remember is the cultural aspect of Malaysians. Most of the visitors were of Muslim religion and it was very awkward to have the eyes of locals on my bare shoulders and legs.

    Good mall with a variety of shops and food venues including Nando's and Starbucks. The Food court downstairs is always busy and fantastic value. Shops include clothes, childrens clothes local household items and House of ANLI.

    I could have spent a couple of hours exploring the fresh food stalls full of fish, fruits, herbs and spices. The warren of shops provide a heady experience of aromas, alas, other family members just found it too smelly.

    This was a fun place to spend time and look, although buying was not an option due to our traveling. It certainly made me wish that it was in my home city, especially for the seafood.

    This used to be where stolen goods were brought to be sold, now just a flea market and soon to be developed. Now only an historical point, unless you want to buy second hand stuff

    My friend brought me here for the chicken rice. There are 2-3 chicken rice stalls, we went to the one at the corner. Good and cheap comfort food

    The interior design is trendy & chic! The vibe is restaurant is fun & vibrant. Great place for friday night out with friends before hitting the clubs! The food hits the right spot and the Pisco Sour is addictive! Most of the starters are really nice like the Quail, halloumi and King fish Collar. For the the main course the beef cheeks is my firm favorite. :D Loved the caramel crème brûlée but the crowd favorite seemed to be the apple crumble.

    Lai Chun Yuen was the main landmark on Smith Street. It was built in 1887 and was a very popular theatre for Cantonese opera. It was designed by Regent Alfred Bidwell from Swan and Maclaren. In fact, the nickname given by the Chinese for this street is "theatre street". However it is probably named after Sir Cecil Clementi Smith who was the Governor of the Straits Settlements. He was very popular with the Chinese community.
    Smith Street was a well-known red-light district in the early 1900s. Lai Chun Yuen was the epitome of vice and there were private cubicles designed for discreet activities and opium smoking was a common sight in the theatre. The most notorious brothel was located at No 65 which has been demolished to build the Chinatown Complex.
    Now Smith Street is popular with tourists due to Chinatown Food Street.
    Yip Yew Chong painted three murals here:
    1) "My Chinatown Home" -It depicts his first home in Sago Lane. His grandmother was portrayed sewing a patchwork blanket. The children playing Ludo were the artist and his siblings. His mother was frying the new year sticky cake in the kitchen. He also painted common things used long ago such as the cassette player, the cane, mosquito coil, door bell, wall gecko and the rat trap.
    2) "Detective Conan in Chinatown"
    3) "Letter writer"-in olden days, letter writers often wrote letters for the migrant workers to their families back in China. They also wrote calligraphy for Chinese New Year couplets. he painted this mural with his two children.
    Many of the Chinese Baroque shophouses here have secondary pilasters, Corinthian capitals. cornices and Regency fanlights
