Singapore is a food paradise
One thing everyone knows about even if someone has never been to the Lion City is their delicious cuisine. Equally famous is where you get this amazing food. Hawker Centres rule as the place to have local fare. They are outdoor, side-by-side stalls around picnic tables which have probably been there for decades making the same amazing dishes for Singaporeans and tourists, adult and children alike. There are over a hundred hawkers but JAM was lucky enough to visit one of the best - Newton Circus.
A feast of the best Singaporean hawker food (chosen by local friends of JAM): hainanese chicken rice, chili crab, pepper crab, spicy sting ray, garlic chinese broccoli, satay with peanut sauce, chicken wings, rice and fried mantou buns to dip in the full-of-ridiculous-flavor chili crab sauce. They offered utensils and gloves, no napkins, for the neatniks in us but we found the best way is to just dig in (there's a sink nearby to wash hands post delicious and messy meal). Some open for breakfast, most for lunch and dinner. Newton Food Centre is open seven days a week, 12pm-2am. Remember cash (dishes are priced very reasonably if not cheap) and a hungry appetite for the full gastronomic experience. We sure did!
