Everything We Ate at Maxwell Food Centre in Singapore

Today, we’re showing you everything we ate at Maxwell Food Centre. Let’s eat!

It is my mother’s first time in Singapore and our first order of business is to have her try some authentic local dishes. Maxwell showcases the country’s culinary heritage, filled with hawkers that have become legendary in their own right. Its chaotic ambiance, fragrant aroma, and banging of sizzling woks make this food hub a feast for the senses.

It’s just proper that my mother’s first meal in Singapore is Hainanese Chicken Rice, one of the dishes that symbolize the city-state. Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice still has a long line of tourists and locals just like the last time we were here. The perfectly poached chicken is succulent and almost melts in your mouth. The aroma of ginger and garlic comes through with every spoonful of rice. While it is satisfying, it tastes a little bit different from the first time I tried it 4 years ago. I can’t say that I liked it better this time. Nonetheless, my mother enjoyed it.

I ordered a large serving of Yang Chow Fried Rice from Somerset Delicacies after uncle’s violent clanking of his Wok caught my attention. Each bite is filled with a smoky charred flavor followed up by the sweetness of the eggs, crabs, and spring onions. This dish is so flavorful and can be enjoyed as it is without an entrée.

The dish I miss the most in Singapore is Curry Laksa that’s why I was so happy to see a stall serving one in Maxwell. We ordered a bowl of Old Nyonya’s Signature Laksa, their bestseller. The spice was not too overpowering and you can still appreciate the sweetness from the coconut milk. Toppings include shrimp, tofu, bean sprouts, and a hard-boiled egg. While this bowl was not as intense as Sungei Road Laksa flavor-wise, it still satisfied my Laksa cravings.

Finally, we bought some deep-fried dumplings from this stall. They were filled with ground pork and chives and came with a dipping sauce made of soy sauce and ginger. It was very tasty, had generous amounts of filling, and was affordable.
