“Newton is one of the most famous hawker centres in Singapore from a tourist point of view, owing to its many write ups in tourism guides and its proximity to Orchard Road, however the only reason it’s been included in this list is as an avoid. Overzealous touts, stalls that overcharge and no real examples of the best of anything mean you’re better off going elsewhere. You won’t eat badly here as such but given everything else that’s available elsewhere, why would you bother?”

“All local food are found here. Satay club not to be missed. You have to order also the BBQ Stingray, seashells, and do look for the stall that sells Thunder Tea Rice!”

“The baked goods taste delicious as it smells, Tiong Bahru Bakery is a hipster-cool bourgeoisie in the quaint Tiong Bahru neighborhood. This bake shop is constantly raved about for its high quality pain au Chocolat, Brioche, Croissants, and Kouign-amann. Some customers even went as far as saying Tiong Bahru Bakery has the best croissants in Singapore. Located in Tiong Bahru, this bakery sports a modern café style but the Chinese influence is strong on its signage and cutleries. ”

“A household name for savoury cafe classics, the Ann Siang outlet offers a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding areas. Its food is reliable European fusion fare – which has since earned the chain a rep as a go-to place for long brunches, romantic dates and group celebrations. Desserts here have a cult following – grab a friend or two and dig into the enormous Double Chocolate blackout cake or the Sticky Date Pudding.”
