5 Best Hawker Centres in the East
Hawker centres are an important part of Singapore's identity and the majority of locals, like us, dine at hawker centres at least once a week, perhaps even more. If you're visiting Singapore for the first time and staying at our luxury urban resort, Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore, you should check out the 5 best hawker centres in the Eastern precinct for affordable and good local food.
#1 - Changi Village Hawker Centre
Changi Village Hawker Centre is widely known for its nasi lemak, either from the International Muslim Food Stall or Mizzy Corner. Well, this food heaven doesn't just serve up delicious nasi lemak. There is a huge variety of other tasty local fare too. The chicken chop hor fun from Weng Kee Ipoh Hor Fun is very comforting. Hearty diners can go for the seafood white beehoon from Woon Woon Pek Beehoon. If you’re having a cheat day, go for the sinful char kway teow from 大众美食. Don’t forget to end your meal with refreshing desserts from Mei Lin Leng Re Yin Pin.
#2 - East Coast Lagoon Food Village
Located within East Coast Park, you can participate in recreational activities in the day before indulging in a feast at the East Coast Lagoon Food Village at night. Head here with your family and friends if you’re planning to try as many dishes as possible. You can expect local favourites such as satay, popiah, BBQ chicken wings, hokkien mee and bak kut teh, just to name a few.
#3 - Tampines Round Market & Food Centre
This hawker centre caters to the morning market-goers and early birds. The mouthwatering dishes will totally make sacrificing your sleep worthwhile. For a solid breakfast, try the Sarawak Kolo Mee, Joo Chiat Kim Choo Traditional Rice Dumplings and Song Han Carrot Cake. For something that's lighter on the palate, we recommend the Chai Chee Pork Porridge and the Min Jiang Kueh from 137 Market Pancake.
#4 - Bedok 85 Fengshan Food Centre
While Tampines Round Market & Food Centre caters to the morning crowd, Bedok 85 Fengshan Food Centre is a popular supper spot for night owls. This place is famous for bak chor mee that comes in a rich pork broth. It's a comforting bowl of noodles on rainy nights. Apart from bak chor mee, you can also get BBQ stingray, other BBQ seafood, oyster omelette, satay beehoon, and more.
#5 - Old Airport Road Food Centre
Out of all the hawker centres in Singapore, the Old Airport Road Food Centre is our most well liked. One visit will not suffice because there is too much food to try. If you cannot decide what to eat, just look for the stalls with snaking queues. The dishes will not disappoint.
You cannot leave Singapore without trying our local food, especially when there are so many options available for you when you stay at our resort.
