Our first meal was at Whampoa Food Center ...a few blocks from the hotel and a good 20 minutes walk.
The place is clean. Food is prepared by the stall owners. The price is a fraction (S$5/pax) compared to the Mall
Food Court (S$10/pax) and the fine dining (S$40/pax).

Good variety and very cheap eats, almost like 12 dollars for two including beverage (non-alcoholic). Yet, most of the stuff tastes the same and not spicy at all. Can be crowded, cleanliness is average.

Been there several times and can get the typical hawkers centre experience. Value for money and different varieties of dmfood selection from Chinese, Malay, Indian, Thai, Korean to almost every kind of south east Asian cuisine. For much cheaper rounds you around 5-10$.

This place has a good variety of cheap local food. While some stalls close soon after lunch, there are many serving the dinner crowd which probably account for why it's mostly more crowded for dinner than lunch. There are many favorites. I like a corner stall that serves fish soup and fish head steamboat. The nasi lemak stall often serving a long queue. Hoover rojak has a long history. Middle row has a good oyster omelette.

I had prawn noodle from shop named 545. I saw long line which pulled my attention to try. Noodle is so so, but the terrible thing is surrounding there. I had dinner nearby an old Chinese man who spit up mucus every 5 min!!!! So dirty and I didn't expect this rude and dirty manner in Singapore. I definitely won't return to this place and I warn you if you pick this in yr list!!!
