People tend to check in during these times:
Outram Park Roasted Meat #02-13/14 is as good as our 4SQ friends described. Pork & duck meat skillfully roasted, w a wonderful smoky fragrant & flavour. Chilli sauce thick & not so spicy.
Chicken rice. Finally sampled Heng Ji #02-131 since he opens only 3pm-9pm. Chicken meat is good but since Tian Tian @ Maxwell is just a stone's throw away, I'd rather eat there
Hungry at 5am? Jia Ji Mei Shi #02-166 sells local breakfast fare: rice porridge, yusheng (sliced raw fish), yam cake, chee cheong fun, soon kueh, glutinous rice, fried noodles/bee hoon, rice dumplings
Nutritious Soft Liquid Food: Black Sesame Paste. Wholesome dessert good for bone-strengthening and darker hair, but its 'heaty food'. Need to drink cooling stuff after that.
Rice porridge. Find diners deep in thought in betw mouthfuls of porridge @ 6am. Tucked in a corner, Tian Tian #02-185 serves the quintessential pork porridge. I like its honest blandness. Fish availab

I think that this is the main Hawker Center in Chinatown. Go here for clay pot rice (which is great) or dessert soups. This is also where I've seen juiced sugar cane.

Hawker center directly behind the Chinatown temple. Good choice.. Can get quite busy so be prepared to take away.
An Ji fish head is delicious!
Closed once a month for thorough washing. All the food stalls will close so they can clean the place. Plenty of nice food here. Beware the pigeons stalking you from above ready to poop on you.
Cheap and tasty. Try O-tea and O-coffee
DIY popiah: Fortune Food #02-004 sells handmade (actually central kitchen) popiah skin ($15/kg), ground peanuts, crispy bits, chilli sauce, etc to host ur own popiah party @ home. Convenient!
Best place to find great bargains and then head out for best and cheapest food. Steamed pork buns for me pls :)
Amazing selection of food here. Remember to check out the secluded corner (turn right and go all the way past the bridge) for more good food.
Duck noodles.Must try! Jin Ji #02-156
Malagi oil chicken 👍
Braised duck rice (or porridge). Run Ji #02-140.Simple serving of traditional staple. Duck meat slices were thick. Operated by friendly elderly lady. So expect old school cuts which incl bone bits :-)
Too many great stalls to choose from. Some favorites - clay pot rice, yong tau fu, xiao long bao, sesame paste dessert, beer company...
Stall 02-103, Fried Carrot Cake. Don't think I'll ever get used to Singapore's sweet version. It's just... wrong.
Ignore overload of tips abt Yue Ping fried pumpkin cakes. It doesn't exist. It's now Chai Chee Cuttlefish (yummy snack!) Examine the phantom contributors in 2011, that's all they spam abt. Fishy :-(
