Take a culinary tour of one of Singapore’s most iconic hawker centres with this list of the top food stalls. From Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice to China Street Fritters, enjoy the best tastes that Maxwell has to offer!


Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice

This famous stall is known for its tender, juicy chicken and flavorful rice cooked in chicken broth. It has been praised by renowned chefs like Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay reported that “Chicken rice is so fragrant and delicious that it can be eaten on its own”.  The fragrant and tasty rice sounds simple but is the cornerstone of Tian Tian. The rice is cooked in the chicken stock to perfection – full of flavour and oily as the way Hainanese chicken rice should be. Reasonable prices. A decent portion of chicken and rice plus a bowl of chicken broth costs 5.00 Singapore dollars. Basically, it is the usual price for any hawker foods in Singapore. But we can say that it’s price is a steal for its good quality and taste.


Zhen Zhen Porridge

A popular stall serving Cantonese-style rice porridge (congee). Their signature dishes include the fish porridge and century egg with lean meat porridge, both known for their smooth texture and rich flavors. ou can usually tell which stalls are the best by the number of people waiting in line. The better the food, the more people in line. It may not be science, but in my experience, it is true. And, this is true at Zhen Zhen Porridge. While I have been fortunate on my visits, not waiting more than five minutes in line, I have heard some visitors to the stall have waited up to an hour in line. So, it is best to come during off hours.


China Street Fritters

This stall specializes in traditional Hokkien-style ngoh hiang (fried meat rolls) and other deep-fried snacks, such as prawn fritters and beancurd skin rolls. The crispiness and flavorful fillings make these snacks a crowd favorite. It was well-known that the Ngs, who intended to retire, were sourcing for buyers for their recipes which they priced at S$1 million. In a media interview, Kok Hua revealed that his family planned to close their stall in March 2022 should they fail to find a buyer, as none of the hawkers’ kids were willing to take over the business.


Marina South Delicious Food

Known for their char kway teow (stir-fried rice noodles), this stall offers a delicious, smoky version of the dish, with a generous mix of ingredients like prawns, cockles, Chinese sausage, and bean sprouts. The taste is very similar to that of an oyster omelet. It is very delicious and I am finished eating it all at once. You can also try the surrounding foods, many of them are cheap and good. There is a klook label on the door of the store, which is reassuring.


Special Shanghai Tim Sum

This stall serves a variety of Chinese dim sum, including xiao long bao (soup dumplings), pan-fried dumplings, and steamed pork ribs. The xiao long bao, in particular, is well-loved for its delicate skin and flavorful broth. They are well known for our delicious steamed and fried dumplings, Beijing noodles, Shanghai rice cakes and Sour and Spicy soup. They have more than 40 years of experiences and the secret recipes we used in cooking were passed down to us from our forefathers – originally from China!


These are just a few of the many delicious options available at Maxwell Food Centre. Be sure to explore other stalls as well, as there are many hidden gems offering a diverse range of cuisines.
