Once you have spend enough time in Singapore, it is a given that you are going to be looking for places where you can eat well, eat hearty, and it is cheap. I’ve witnesses transformations of the most sophisticated food gourmets into wild Hawker Center monsters. To be prepared, here are some of my best tips, which you might want to implement, if you are looking for something to fill up that wide empty space above your solar plexus in Singapore.
Are you ready for a gent’s day out after a Hard Days Night? Singapore is one place, where you do not have to bother much about not finding a place where you can drown your sorrows in drink, sobbing juicily into a beer. Whether you are in such an enviable state or not, you would want to look for places where you can get the cheapest drinks in Singapore… and that might be a difficult task!
Singapore is well known for its fantastic range of food so whoever is looking for the sweeter side of life wont be disappointed either. Although more and more European places for Ice Cream, Waffles, Crepes or imported chocolate are popping up, the local deserts have a class on their own and are definitely worth trying!
I am not joking when I tell you that I already threw up just by sitting next to someone that enjoyed his Durian fruit.

Four pairs of widely opened, surprised eyes stare at me this early hot evening somewhere about 3 years ago.

My standard reply has been “Three days should be enough” so far, without ever really thinking about it. However, most of them usually decide for the “1-Day-Quickly-Leave-Again-I-am-not-even-allowed-to-chew-Bubble-Gum-here” option.
About one month ago I moved out of my fancy East side Studio Apartment with whirlpool and Infinity Pool on the Rooftop, right into the Singaporean heart, an HDB flat on the 16th floor in Downtown Singapore. I miss the pool, I miss the Ocean but I have to say, I like it here anyway!
There Are Actually Hawker Center In Singapore Where You Get A Regular Dinner For Less Then 500 Dollar
And following the heated debate about the recent “Newton Circus Hawker Center Scandal“, I decided to give you a list of wonderful places to go for much cheaper and probably much better food as well. (A hawker center is similar to a food court, just outside, cheaper, busier and more original)
THE verdict is in: Stall No 43 at Newton Hawker Center overcharged a band of American tourists who ate there last Saturday night.
Now, Tanglin Best BBQ Seafood will pay the price: It must shut down for three months from April 1, and the worker who served the Americans cannot work there for one year. (Continue Reading)
