Cheap eats are the name of the game. Essentially, choose which type of cuisine you desire and then order up. Most of the hawkers sell Asian and Indian fare, but we did spy an Italian and "Western food" stall. Rest assured that we skipped over those.
Instead of food we could easily get at home, we chose Indonesian chicken satay, Shanghai dumplings, pork buns and beef ball soup. Since the temperature in Singapore is either hot and wet or just hot, we washed it all down with freshly squeezed sugar cane juice, winter melon tea, and iced longan juice. Our total bill of about $15 SGD ($12 USD) didn't break the bank!
Markets like these are all over Singapore and we would recommend to check out as many as you can. Maxwell Road, Newton Circus and East Coast Lagoon Food Village all come highly recommended. Remember the bbq'd stingray? That came from another, more suburban market named Chomp Chomp. Now, where will we eat next with all of these choices? Wish you were here!
