The Maxwell Food Centre is one of Singapore’s most famous hawker food courts.
You know that the quality of food is good here because it’s not only frequented by tourists, but locals regularly come to dine.

It’s always buzzing with activity all day long as people from near and far come to get their fill of Singaporean street food and regional delicacies.
The hawker centre features two long lines of kiosks that sell mostly Chinese food: dim sum, porridge, noodles, fish balls, and rice dishes.
Of course, you’ll also easily find Singapore’s famous dishes, including chicken rice. The best stall for chicken rice at the Maxwell Food Centre is none other than Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, which was even awarded a Michelin Star, making them the first street stall ever to receive such a coveted food award.
Other favourites include Ah Tai (chicken rice), Zhen Zhen Porridge, Huang Ji (noodles), Special Shanghai Tim Sum, Jin Hua Sliced Fish Bee Hoon, and the Maxwell Fuzhou Oyster Cake.
Maxwell Food Centre is also located near many of the best attractions in Chinatown so that you can add this to your itinerary for the day. The nearest subway stations are the Chinatown and Telok Ayer stations.
You can find it at 1 Kadayanallur Street in Singapore. Opening hours are from 8am to 2am daily. If you’re in a hurry or want to avoid the queues, don’t go between 12pm and 2pm, as this is when the food court tends to fill up with workers from nearby offices on their lunch break.
