Find the Best Cheap Food in Singapore with City Nomads – Your Guide to Singapore’s Hawker Centres and Street Food with Our Full Listing of Reviews and Deals

Without a shadow of a doubt, the backbone of Singapore’s culinary industry comes from the numerous hawker centres and coffee shops dotting the various neighbourhoods in our city.

Amoy Street Food Centre, Old Airport Road Food Centre, Chinatown Complex Food Centre and Tiong Bahru Market – this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to naming great places to finding cheap but awesome food, and we’re not exaggerating when we say that we can go on forever!

Also, places like Maxwell Centre have caught the attention of household names such as Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsey, while our remaining local food stalls have been dutifully filling the stomachs of Singaporeans for years, some even for decades!

If not for these humble establishments and their hardworking vendors, we wouldn’t be the foodie paradise that we are today. The very cultural essence of our country is dependant on these purveyors of local cuisine, which makes the astonishingly cheap prices something we’re truly proud of.

As well-travelled people and nomads ourselves, we can safely say that there is hardly anywhere else on earth where you can get a full-sized meal at similar costs, and this section will highlight the best cost-effective places to eat at in Singapore.
