Amazing shops, stalls and street food that is tasty, spicy and unique to Chinatown.
Just walk out of Chinatown MRT down Pagoda Street and you will be met with a choice of Chinese food to take your breath away. Sit out any of the stalls, grab a beer and watch the world go by, as you wait for whatever delicacy you have ordered. Or if it’s evening time sample some of the live music on the street corners.
Take a walk to New Bridge Road and find more of the same, everywhere you go, food is on the menu and with so much choice it’s hard to find to choose somewhere, so my advice, take a walk down Smith Street and sample something from Chinatown Food Street, where you can try Satay skewers, Stingray or roast duck among others.
Well worth it in terms of price, which although you will pay more than your usual Hawker centre located in each area in Singapore, it’s well worth it for the atmosphere, smells and traditional flavours, not to mention the quick efficient service.
If you find the heat and busy street too much, (it can get very busy, as it attracts a lot of tourists every day) then opt for one of the Air-conditioned restaurants around the stalls, you will pay a bit more, but the quiet comfort and cool air is certainly worthwhile.
