Known for its late night occupancy, Newton Food Centre at 500 Clemenceau Avenue North is one of the most favourite hawker centers in Singapore. Famous among the tourists, this colonial style structure promotes an open atmosphere with a nice breeze cross ventilating to give a cooling effect. Interestingly, many food stalls are serving different types of cuisines which make it difficult for the visitors to decide which one to go for. Historically, over priced and known for touting, this place became unpopular especially among the locals. Even at present, you can see â€œNo Toutingâ€ sign board for the stall owners indicating how enthusiastic stall owners were (are). Nonetheless, stall after stall and items like Satay, Popiah, Oyster Omelette, Fish Soup, Fried Rice, Murtabak and BBQ Seafood add to its significance. To tingle our taste buds, we stopped at No. 27 Alliance Seafood â€“ Makanan Laut Alliance run by an old Chinese Aunty. After ordering simple fried rice, one of Singaporeâ€™s favorites, I waited for almost 20 minutes to get the food served, which was comparatively slower than other competitor stalls. Besides, I also ordered a fresh sugar cane juice with lime which was unexpectedly high priced at almost S$2.5. Although with an empty stomach and hunger on its peak, I did not enjoy the food. Having served, I wished I could have ordered Popiah or Satay which looked succulent on other tables as Fried Rice was disappointedly expensive at $5 for a small portion. Just across was a stall with a long queue for a titled â€œlocal cuisineâ€ at much lower prices. This was probably the most crowded stall among all. Despite it being overpriced for the quality of food, I thoroughly enjoyed sitting outdoor. This is surely one of the cleanest and airy hawker centers in Singapore. Look and feel of the overall area gives a much modern and touristy impression unlike other hawker places in town. If you want to enjoy the uncongested and open environment with a plethora of eatables, you must visit this place. Although the best time to enjoy its buzz would be after 7pm but for calmer atmosphere, lunch time is ideal but at the cost of fewer stalls opened around that time.
