What used to be an airport has since transformed into a foodie's paradise
Old Airport Road Food Centre is in a way similar to an airport. Just that here, you take a trip around the world via your taste buds!
Since bidding its previous entity as Singapore's first civil airport Kallang Airport goodbye in 1973, Old Airport Road Food Centre has changed for the better by becoming a food haven for all. Now, the two-storey building likens to a culinary labyrinth, filled with more than 100 hawker stalls that offer an exhaustive array of both local and some international delights at low price points.
And if you're overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choices offered at the food centre, here are seven hawker stalls that you can start with first:
2. Lor Mee ($5), Xin Mei Xiang Zheng Zong Lor Mee
Like Albert Street Prawn Noodle, Xin Mei Xiang Zheng Zong Lor Mee is usually seen with a long queue which means waiting is inevitable. But your patience will be paid in full once you indulge in its kinda mindblowing lor mee. Heavily doused in a smooth, piquant braised gravy, thick yellow noodles weave through ingredients of pork, egg and a fistful of spices and garnishes such as minced garlic for a bowl of lor mee that is big on flavour. But the highlight has to be the snapper fish flakes that are generously sprinkled into the bowl.
