Maxwell Market in Chinatown is now popularly known as Maxwell Food Centre. It is basically a hawker center housing many stalls that sell a varied range of yummy and inexpensive food. Just like other hawker centers Maxwell Market or Maxwell Food Centre in Chinatown is located in the urban region to facilitate the urban community by giving them an opportunity to avoid unhygienic food preparations by unlicensed street hawkers. But nowadays, food markets like Maxwell are losing their popularity as they are getting replaced by air- conditioned food courts either in shopping malls or in other commercial venues.
These food courts are favorites to the affluent section of the society and with the rise in the economic standard of the people in Singapore, hawker centers are gradually losing their significances but Maxwell Food Centre is still in the limelight when it comes to discuss about cheap yet good food outlets.
The Maxwell Food Centre in Chinatown is well connected with Maxwell Road, Tanjong Pagar Road, Kadayanarul Street, Neil road and Spring Street.
This is indeed an impressive location which draws a huge number of food lovers to Maxwell Food Centre in Chinatown. The most popular dishes are dim sum and porridge. The soft filling of the Oyester pancake helps you to chew the rich sea seafood easily and the popular opinion is, you cannot stop after having only one as the skin is too crispy. The Tian Tian Chicken rice is perfectly cooked with chicken fragrance and surprisingly the rice is not oily though it is made smooth by oil.
If you want to avoid the long queue then, visit the Maxwell Food Centre of Chinatown during weekends at around 11am when the stalls are opened. You will definitely get good food like fried tofu with chili sauce or raw fish slices but visitors are not satisfied with the infrastructure as the toilets are filthy and they feel uncomfortable to sit on the high chairs with low tables. Renovation plans have already been sketched out and we are all waiting to get a new Maxwell Food Centre very soon.
