Best of Street Food in Maxwell Road Hawker Centre, Singapore
Maxwell Road Hawker Centre has been featured on many television channels for offering excellent authentic local food at reasonable prices.
Strategically located at Chinatown and opposite the beautiful Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum, this hawker centre is an ideal place for visitors to have a rest and enjoy tasty local food while exploring Chinatown.
The two long lines of stalls offer mainly Chinese inspired dishes ( think dim sum, rice porridge, fish balls and noodles ) but there is always a selection of regional cuisines to choose from.
At lunchtimes between 12:00-14:00 the whole building is swamped with nearby office workers.
Maxwell Road Hawker Centre is one of the best places to try genuine Singaporean dishes that are cheap and very tasty..
There are many famous food stalls : Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice stall (#01-10), Zhen Zhen Porridge (#01-54), China Street Fritters (#01-64), Marina South Delicious Food (#01-35), and Hoe Kee Porridge (#01-45).
Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice stall is the most popular food stall in Maxwell Hawker Centre, if not the most popular in all of Singapore! Snaking queues are a common sight close to meal times – especially after The Michelin Guide gave Tian Tian a Michelin Star (the first ever given to a street stall anywhere in the world).
If you are in the mood for steamed chicken on rice but don’t have the time to wait in line, you can check out Ah Tai Hainanese Chicken Rice just a few stalls down, who himself is a former staff member at his more famous neighbour.
Another enduring favourite at Maxwell Hawker Centre is Rojak, Popiah & Cockle, which serves the Malay style mix of crispy bread, fruit and vegetable and egg mix all smothered in a bold, biting sauce
