Maxwell Food Centre

A typical hawker centre or food centre where many locals and tourists who patronise for their meals.

Maxwell Food Centre is located near Maxwell Road; near Tanjong Pagar Road. It has a long history and it was formerly a wet market during the 1950s for the residents in chinatown. It was then converted to a hawker centre to house hawkers. For more info:click here

I like to eat at this food centre when I am in the chinatown area. There are many nice stalls that sell my favourite food and at a very reasonable price.

The difference between a hawker centre and a food court is that most hawker centre are non air conditioned but with huge fans while food court are found mostly in shopping malls and are air conditioned. But most good food are found in hawker centre and they are reasonably priced.
