6 Best Stalls at Maxwell Food Centre 
Maxwell Food Centre is one of Singapore’s best hawker stalls. Is one of the best not just for the locals working in CBD but also for tourists and for me to satisfy both sides is not something many could do. Visit any day of the week, you will find long-standing queues at most of the stalls here. I would avoid coming here during peak hours as it will be tough for you to find a table unless you ask people if you could share a table with them.
An interesting fact according to The National Environment Agency was that Maxwell Food Centre was one of the sites for the former Singapore Social Welfare Department’s initiative to provide cheap meals for the poor and the displaced after World War II.
So is the food still cheap? Well, compared to any other restaurant in CBD, it is still relatively affordable and most importantly, tastes good. Here are the 6 Best Stalls at Maxwell Food Centre.
