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:
6. Rojak ($4), Toa Payoh Rojak
Wired up with an e-numbering system, Toa Payoh Rojak does its name justice by offering possibly the best rojak we had so far. The two deciding factors that had us lay that claim are the deliciously crispy you tiao chunks and the thick, sweet-savoury sauce that is said to be made from concentrated prawn paste. Other components such as the tao pok and pineapple slices are all charcoal-grilled before added into the mix. Tao Payoh Rojak is unique as spinach is included as well – something we actually kind of liked!
