    Just like any other food Court you will find standard offerings like bak chor mee, chicken rice, nasi lemak etc but nothing stands out. If you happen to be there and are hungry just go for what appeal to you at that moment.

    This is an old small HDB hawker and wet market along Farrer Road. There are about 20 food and drinks stalls with limited variety but very reasonable prices. Flanked by a few shops and even a Singapore Pools outlet at one end.

    Wet market has the usual meat and vegetables stalls. One of the first that sold salmon fish due to large expatriate families living around there in past but more locals and helpers now doing the marketing.

    This fresh market basically has got all the things that you need of a fresh market. No exotic fancy stuff but freshest regular foods. My family come here basically every weekend to shop for the week’s supply and supplement those things that are not as fresh from the supermarket. There are few hawkers stalls that are my favourite and I will da pao them for my weekly fix. The bak choi mee, wanton noodles, prata, soybean drink, they are all good stuff.

    One of the oldest food centres in Singapore. It is not very big so not many food stalls. There are however, a few stalls selling very good food which make it worth the effort to come to this food centre. There are chinese, malay n indian food. Because it is small, it is crowded during lunch period fr 1130am to 1.30pm. May b difficult to find seats at times. Many food stalls close around 4pm, therefore don’t go after 4pm as there would b very few stalls operating by then. Recommended to visit b4 11am anyday.

    Self sustained market and food center located within private estates and landed properties.
    You would think all would be expensive, but not.
    The food center is pretty decent, from Chinese food to Malay cuisine, Indian cuisine, western etc.
    I found a stall that sells pastry which are all self hand made. Pastry like Pau, curry puff, sponge cakes, kueh.
    There’s also a special stall selling herbal fish soup, not bad.

    Not to be confused with Empress Place, which is in town. Empress Road is off Farrer Road. I call it the “Royalty area”, as the roads there include such names as King’s Road, and Duchess Road…
    The Empress Market is an average size market and hawker centre serving average food. It sports several nice murals on some walls. The good thing about the place is that it’s got very high ceilings so it’s airy and cool; and it’s not too crowded, even when I was there on Sunday morning.
    Food wise, nothing stands out, although the wanton noodles did have a rather long queue. My personal favourite is the Kopi tarik which is one of the nicest ones I’ve had.

    Although surrounded by a few blocks of public housing, it is located where the very wealthy lives. It is perhaps one of the few wet and dry markets and hawker centres where you can shop and eat alongside local and foreign wealthy and ordinary folks.

    Clean and rather quiet place. Not crowded at all.
    But the reason is a low number of stalls opened. Specifically after 1-2pm, the number of opened stalls drops dramatically. At 6-7pm there is barely anything opened, and almost nothing to eat.
    However the food is tasty here and quite cheap.

    Been quite awhile since I did visited Empress Market and here for a simple quick bite.

    Chance noticing this stall suggesting Traditional Chicken Rice at mere $2/= (which fits my desire for a “simple” meal).

    So I was wrong where both plates served to be rather decent in portion on meat, rice and the beansprouts.

    Really old school taste and by no mean shortchanged.

    The stall owner been soft spoken and courteous with a smile throughout.

    The food centre has a nice wide selection of food. I like that it has more Malay halal food here than in some other food centres. However the toilets are horrible. They could be vastly improved. Wet and smelly , a typical public toilet from the 70’s; they can take as a good example of what a public toilet in a food centre should be from Commonwealth Food Centre. Its pretty clean and decent there, and using it is reasonably pleasant.

    A small marketplace with delicious food. I am a Cantonese and the Wanton Mee in Empress market is the best I have ever eaten in Singapore. It might even be better than the local Cantonese food in Canton. It is affordable and the quantity is worth the price. The texture of noodle and Taste of the Wanton make it a perfect dish! The queue is always very Long! Also the sugar cane juice had went up price from $1 to $1.10! I believe that it’s sugar cane juice is one of the best in town as well!
    Do visit this place if you are nearby. The food here will never make your trip regrettable.
    Maybe the “Best chicken chop”, 5-star Wanton mee, cheap and nice Sugar cane, local taste of Hokkien Noodle.

    There is nothing much in this market past lunchtime so those hoping for a quick late lunch would be wiser to skip this place. Otherwise, it has a decent hawker fare.

    This is a morning and lunch centre. Few stalls are good like the mix rice stall beside the chicken chop/fish and chips stall is very good. The ayam penyet beside the prata stall is good too. The morning breakfast bee hoon (opens 6am) not too bad, it directly opposite from the chicken rice stall. The zi char (hor fun) stall beside the rojak stall is quite good too. Only problem, they all close around 2pm.

    The wet market has a good selection of vegetables and meat at standard market prices. The hawker food side is a little lacking but there are a few good options in the morning to early afternoon. Nothing much past 5pm so go earlier.

    A medium size hawker with wet market in the same location.

    Loved the variety of food stalls in this compact hawker – muslim, bbq, noodle/rice, drink stalls, pastries, etc. My favorite includes the pork rib soups, ice cendol, you tiao, and the Indonesian food stalls – and still need to try other stalls. Prices seems to be reasonable.

    Also checked out nearby bakery, frozen meat/seafood, fruit stalls, and recently open coffee shop – Croco.

    Not the best nor the most fresh hawker stall, but has good food variety. Crowded on Sundays. Most stalls close before dinner. There’s small shops with general products, a 7-Eleven, two bakeries, a veterinary clinic, a shop full of fruits and more.

    The roti pratha place has already run out of pratha by ~12:30, so I had mutton biryani instead – very nice. It’s a medium-sized food centre that’s not too crowded at lunch. Don’t come too late because most places seem to be closing up by ~1:30.

I love the Indian snack stall serving vades and onions coated in batter. There’s generous amount of dal adding to the crunch of the vade. My 81 year old mom couldn’t stop munching on it. Best part is… It costs less than a dollar.

    Wet market is comparatively more expensive, probably catering to the rich staying in this area.

    Loved the variety of food stalls in this compact hawker – muslim, bbq, noodle/rice, drink stalls, pastries, etc. My favorite includes the pork rib soups, ice cendol, you tiao, and the Indonesian food stalls – and still need to try other stalls. Prices seems to be reasonable.

    Also checked out nearby bakery, frozen meat/seafood, fruit stalls, and recently open coffee shop – Croco.

    It’s close by from Farrer Rd MRT and right next door to the D’Leedon complex.

    Visited Empress Market for the first time. Prata was nice. There are interesting stalls here. We also bought 肉干, made from minced meat so it’s not too hard for kids and old folks. Oh! And the freshly made doughnuts, simply coated with icing sugar.

    I’ll have to come again to try the others. The 药材鱼汤 caught my attention. And it says fried fish is 现炸现卖.

    Here are some photos of stalls available here at 9am. Noticed many stalls not opened yet. Probably they would open later.

    At the hawker centre, these are noteworthy:
    Roti Prata, Nasi Biryani
    Various thosai & vadai
    Shredded chicken & wanton noodles
    Freshly baked buns & muffins
    Nasi Ayam Penyet
    Chicken Chop (night only)
    Chinese rojak
    Chicken & Char Siew rice/noodles
    Bak kwa (barbecued spiced pork)
    Average per person spend per meal S$6

    At the wet market:
    Good varieties of fresh local & imported vegetables
    Various red meat, poultry & seafood
    Prices are reasonable & the quality can be inspected as opposed to buying from a supermarket.

    To be fair, am only there in the early mornings most times, so not all the stalls are open at those hours. Still, they do have some decent offerings.

    They have lots of noodle stalls. Particular favourites usually have long queues waiting for them to begin operations. One noodle stall sells a rather large variety and they are located in an outward facing stall along the perimeter and are either a corner stall or one in from there. Still, if you are in a rush, the others provide decent options, too.

    If you are in the mood for porridge, they offer a small variety but the food brings some sense of comfort. The porridge-and-noodle stall is located next to a Chinese stall that sells a range of meat floss. The floss stall seems is often abuzz during the festive season.

    The Chinese carrot cake, when you can get it, is quite yummy. It has a nice crust and just the right amount of saltiness and chilli.

    I usually breeze past the many economical food stalls admiring their huge piles of noodles, kway teow, meats and veggies. Truly huges piles of food and that’s just how they do it there… all three of them.

    They have 2 small bakeries among the hawker stalls. Between them, you may get pandan cakes, paus and curry puffs, pies and other pastries.

    The marketplace itself is quiet during weekdays. However, those in need of stockings or some simple items of clothing might be able to find items of interest there. I believe they also have an aquarium, so you can get your supplies or pet fish there.

    This was the 2nd time I went back that in less than a month. Wanted to have the prawn noodles soup cos it was a cold and rainy day. Unfortunately it was closed. Decided to queue for the so called highly recommended wanton noodles. It was a very big disappointment because it’s not the old school type. There was black sauce in it and noodles wasn’t that al dente and springy. Ordered the salted duck soup and this time, find it lacks the saltishness. I only find it sour. Both were a let down

    The teh halia from Star cafe is the bomb, as is the chicken rice from Farrer Road Chicken Rice.

    For produce, I recommend the veg store in the third aisle with a team of uncles and aunties (closed on Sundays) … DO NOT BUY FROM this guy called Ah Chai in the fourth aisle who is the rudest most unaccommodating vendor I have ever encountered.

    My favourite
    – chicken seller is the couple whose stall is the nearest to the bus stop in the first aisle,
    – seafood seller (second aisle) with the large display,
    – pork seller (third aisle) old uncle
    – beef seller (only one but really good quality)
