While there are hawker centres all over Singapore, this particular one has plenty of history and heritage that makes it a worthwhile visit.

Opened in the early 1970s, many Singaporeans have fond memories of getting their breakfast, lunch, and dinner all in this hawker centre. The centre’s nearly two hundred stalls offer visitors a large variety of food, giving you the choice of eating something different with each visit. Foodies praise the Hokkien Mee, Curry Puff, and Briyani stalls, but there’s plenty more worth trying. It’s also a short walk away from the National Stadium, meaning that you could grab a bite before and even after your concert.

Address: 51 Old Airport Rd

Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday, 6:00 am to 10:30 pm. Opening hours for each stall may vary.

Parking: Old Airport Road Open Car Park and Multi-Storey Carpark. HDB Parking rates apply.
