Newton Hawker Centre Singapore Reviews
Sep 03, 2006
The recently renovated Newton Hawker Centre is a bright, lively, bustling place that provides the variety, quality and good value of other hawker centres without the grime. The food stalls are set in a big square around a plaza fullof tables and chairs; each store is rated for its hygene so you'll know which places to avoid, if any.
You can find anything from oyster omelettes and chilli crab to murtabak, chicken satay and laksa, soft drinks, beer and fresh coconut juice and probably western food and asian desserts (but I didn't look). The food is all good value, and with several stalls selling similar dishes, the competition keeps the prices low. The food will be brought to your table (just remember your table number) and you pay when it arrives. Simple, quick and hassle-free... and I must admit, the cleanliness of the place is a big plus.

In Singapore there are many ethinic varities of food available. There is Indian to French, Italian to Malay food and Chinese. As well as all your normal fast food outlets like Mac Donalds, KFC and Pizza Hut plus more.
For a great cheap option I recommend checking out the Hawker centres which can be found everywhere the meals normally cost around $3 or more. As well as food courts you will normally find these in the Basement of shopping malls and because they are air conditioned the food will be a little more expensive than the hawker centres but still very reasonable.
For a nice cheap meal check out one of the following :
Adam Road Food Center
This hawker center was recently upgraded. With a new facade and more parking space, it is very popular with lunch time crowds. More than 50% of the stalls serve Malay or Indian food.
