A visit to Chinatown is never complete without dropping by Maxwell Food Centre. Rated as one of the best hawker centres in Singapore, you have to try all the local delights on the cheap right here. One of the most nostalgic treats is Maxwell’s Fuzhou’s deep fried Oyster cake. The crunchy snack is always served piping hot, and it is packed with a hearty portion of juicy pork mince, prawns, oysters and Chinese celery.
You can also easily get your dessert fixed at Woong Kee Traditional Dessert which is also one of the highlights. Every bowl of beancurd is scooped to order, so rest assured that you will get a freshly prepared beancurd. Made with black soybeans, Black Bean Curd with White Syrup is their signature beancurd and it is widely known to be smoother and softer than the original. No matter which beancurd you set your eyes on, you can always choose your preferred syrups and toppings from a variety of options to make it even more flavourful.
Indonesian delicacy served up at Aspirasi Chicken Stall is a must-try as well. Here, you get thickly battered fried chicken that comes with various sauces such as sambal, sweet & sour, lemon, and black pepper. Topped with crispy crumbs, every bite of this fried chicken is packed with flavour. What’s more, you can always top up your fried crumbs for free so there’s no need to scrimp and save the crumbs till the last bite. Other popular local delicacies that you should not miss would include Dim Sum and Prata!
