What You Can Expect

Singapore's Chinatown Food Tour

Chwee Kueh

With your informative guide, head to the Chinatown Complex Food Center, where you’ll be introduced to the typical dishes that many  Singaporeans enjoy for breakfast. Stop by several vendor stalls to try items like toast with kaya (coconut egg jam), kopi (Singapore coffee with condensed milk) or chwee kueh (light cake made from rice flour and water). Check out a few other stands to try some local dessert, and listen to recommendations from your guide on the best food stalls in the center, whose maze of vendors can be a little overwhelming on your own.

Then walk through the streets of Chinatown to enjoy the lively atmosphere while hearing from your guide about the origins of Singapore’s Chinese immigrant community. You can experience a bit of daily life in Chinatown for yourself as you observe locals going about their regular activities like shopping for groceries and doing tai chi in the park.

Loved this tour, my husband and myself were the only two on this day, so a private tour! Marcia was lovely and very knowledgable, and described the history in a interesting way, that bought the area really into perspective. The food samples were lovely and the coffee was very different, but nice. Highly recommend this tour.

FANTASTIC. My friend and I were the only two on the tour when we went, so it was like our personal guide to Amsterdam. The guide was excellent. She blended in the history, culture and the food and, as time was not an issue, took us to a supermarket and went over some of the food choices there. Had "real" samples of food- fries with mayo, herring, syrup waffles, cheese and croket. Would recommend it to anyone

Even though only two people were booked on the tour it still went head. The guide was very interesting and provided a good insight into the Chinatown area.

This was one of the best tours I have been on. We had a single guide for my wife and I. He was very informative and used his experience to cater to our needs. The wet market is fascinating and we enjoyed talking to Anthony Leow the "Spicemaker". Highly recommended

If you get a chance to do this tour, take it. My son and I were the only people on this tour so we got a very personal tour. We discovered the food and history of China Town, This was so interesting and very well presented by our tour guide. We had a taste of different breakfast foods eaten by the local Chinese community. These were so tasty. Our guide introduced us to a few of his friends along the tour, so we really had a very personal touch to our tour. As there was only the 2 of us on this tour, we were able to spend a little longer talking to the locals with our tour guide. Our guide showed us so much history from Chinatown it was fantastic.This was a short tour of an hour and a half or so but we learnt so much.

Marcia was an excellent tour guide. We were in a small group which meant we could talk to her individually. Food samples were tasty. There was a good blend of history, modern day life in Singapore and food. I recommend this tour.
