When we first started our SE Asia trip we landed an in Singapore and the first with we did was it the hawker center with our Singaporean friends!
Unfortunately I didn’t take as many photos as I wanted because it was so crowded. But a MUST buy there is the soya bean curd! You can’t miss it. There’s a long que for it. Don’t worry! They have fast service!
I find the hawker centers in Singapore they mostly speak Chinese. I only speak Cantonese and basic Mandarin, majority in Singapore speaks Mandarin. You can say I did struggle to order food.. I was so surprised some could not speak English at all. Singapore official language is English after all..
Tables get filled up very quick so you know this hawker center is a must-go-to in Singapore. The only thing is it might be overwhelming how many food stores there are. I had trouble just finding what to eat!
But here’s a tip: Look for long queues! You’ll know for sure it’s good and what the locals are getting!!
Anyway enjoy 🙂
