1. East Coast Lagoon Food Village At East Coast Park
My personal favorite is the open air Seafood Hawker Center at the East Coast Park, situated directly next to the sandy beach and below the palm trees shading you during a hot day.
The place is open air, yet offers shelters letting you enjoy your food even if its raining, which is not an uncommon thing in Singapore to happen.
The seafood is fresh and cheap, and there is another huge variety of food available. Take a stroll along the beach after you finished your food or take a bicycle ride over to just lay back and relax at this wonderful place.

This Hawker Center is rather an historical place then a Hawker Center. Opened as Singapore’s first market in 1825 it was back then situated directly to the sea allowing easy and convenient trading. (The 7 Best Singaporean Dishes You Really Must Try (With Pics)
Today in the middle of the business district I frequent the place almost every day for my quick lunch bite. A huge range of different food, reasonable prices and a vibrating atmosphere make this not only a tourist attraction but also a nice place to get a good meal.

3. Raffles City Food Court

I put this Food Court in my list because of its nice dishes, the convenient location and overall impression. Situated in a shopping mall, this Food Court is different to the usual busy, easy places you get your supper next to the uncles with the 10 empty Tiger Beer bottles on the next table.
Clean, well organized but still with competitive prices and good food this food court is my favorite when it comes to “indoor” dining. And located at the City Hall hub its always an easy to reach place for a quick bite.

4. Golden Mile Food Center

I go here to get the best Thai food in Singapore. A place where you wont see many tourists, besides those leaving at the big Bus station to Malaysia or any other nearby country.
The Golden Mile Complex is like a hang out place for the Thai community, with bars, shops and of course food stalls as well. Come here for the cheapest and most original Thai food in Singapore.
- Name: Golden Mile Food Center
- Address:Golden Mile Complex – 505 Beach Road / Near Lavender MRT
5. Geylang Serai Market
Yet another Hawker Center you wont find many other tourists, is this place at Singapore’s not so famous Geylang district.
Situated on the second floor of a market house with the bustling trading going on on the first floor, this is the place to go for original, good, and very cheap Malay food.
I usually get my Ramly Burger here, which you will find hardly anywhere else in Singapore. A nice place to watch the Malay and local world and enjoy a fantastic and cheap meal.
- Name: Geylang Serai Market
- Address: Beside Blk 1,3,4,5 Jalan Pasar Bahru, Directly at Exit of Paya Leba MRT
