Being one MRT stop away from Orchard Road, the Newton Food Centre is popular with foreigners and locals alike. Most will go there for barbequed seafood, barbequed chicken wings and other hawker fare.

What we thought of it: Nice, relaxed ambience to have a meal in an outdoor setting. We like the common practice of ordering a variety of dishes to share amongst family or friends.

Tell Us what you think
Take time to decide on the type of food. The better the food, the more popular the stall is. Don’t be intimidated by any touting stall-holders – you can either turn them down politely or patronise their stalls if you think they have something you like. If they do become too overwhelming, note the stall they are from and you can report them to the Singapore Tourism Board.
