Sure, you can tuck into lunch at the perennially popular and always-crowded Maxwell Food Centre or Amoy Street Food Centre. But the offerings you’ll find at the nearby, lesser-known Tanjong Pagar Food Centre – located within the vibrant Tanjong Pagar Plaza housing estate on the other side of the MRT station – are nothing to scoff at.
Crispy and piquant Michelin-recommended curry puffs? You’ll get that here. Springy wanton noodles served with moreish char siew and generously stuffed fried dumplings? Check. Colourful, traditional kueh to take home for afternoon tea? This place has you covered. Here’s a round-up of what to try.
