Maxwell Food Centre, Singapore Overview

A city is defined by its exquisite art, rich history, and unique cultural heritage. However, what really sets a city apart is its cuisine. The only thing that is better than delicious food is when you get it at an affordable price and in this respect, Singapore has never disappointed the food connoisseurs. With numerous hawker centres dotted around the city-state, Singapore has always managed to tantalize the taste buds of the tourists and locals alike without making them burn a hole in their pockets.

Serving authentic food to people since 1986, Maxwell Food Centre in Kadayanallur Road is often considered to be one of the best Hawker Centres in the urban jungle of Singapore. This place comes alive with crowds bustling in to grab a bowl of delicious food, starting from just SGD 3. There has been a steady increase in the number of people thronging this place ever since its most popular stall - Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice - received a Michelin star from the Michelin Guide. Apart from the steaming chicken rice, Maxwell Food Centre also specializes in other appetizing Chinese dishes such as the mouthwatering porridge at the Zhen Zhen stall, special wanton noodles at the Huang Ji stall, scrumptuous dim sum at the Special Shanghai stall, and the enticing sliced fish bee hoon at the Jin Hua stall. The appearance of the Maxwell Food Centre is not fancy and has a non-pretentious, simple atmosphere. They let the quality and taste of their food do the talking.

More on Maxwell Food Centre

Formerly, the Maxwell Food Centre used to be a Chinese wet market - the Kim Hua Market - that stood in Chinatown since 1935. In 1986, it was converted into a temporary food centre with over a hundred food stalls for the street hawkers. Owing to its instant popularity and reputation, the temporary hawker centre was transformed into a permanent one and has been standing here ever since.
