Eating Singapore’s street food is one of the experiences featured in “the book.” I went to two well-known places – Maxwell Food Centre and Newton Circus.
Newton Circus is the most famous and most expensive, and is just down the street from my hotel. It is known as a “hawker” place. I found the best Indian food there, but only after pushing away the aggressive hawkers trying to trick me into eating their over-priced seafood. We did try one of those stalls, and were ripped off when they weighed a shrimp on a scale that did not go down to zero.
I really like the atmosphere of the Maxwell Food Centre. I arrived late, so many stalls were already closed or were out of specialty foods like soup dumplings. But the prices were better and the food was good.
These are great places for quick and delicious meals. Service was good. Do a little price shopping if you have time.
