    Tekka Centre (Hawkers): Tekka Centre (Hawkers) Little India

    One of Singapore's best Hawker Centres is in Tekka Centre, in the heart of Little India. Not only can you find some of the best Indian Cuisine in the city, but all of other Singapore's favorite dishes.

    For some of the best Roti Prata in Singapore, go to Dean's Super Crispy Prata, stand #01-324. The Chicken Curry is to die for and you can stuff your faces til you wanna pop, for just a few dollars.

    Don't be intimidated if you are the only tourist in the whole place. I always take that as a good sign. It means the locals eat there. And if the locals eat there, it means it's not to expensive!

    Tekka Market Food Court: The best Roasted Duck in Singapore

    by knerten Written Aug 14, 2005

    The food court at the Tekka Market may not be the most invïting, looking at it from the outside, but the food is delicious. This booth is on the very southeastern corner of the food court. Mind you, they run out of supplies early, so don't sleep in if you plan on eating a late breakfast here.

    Favorite Dish: Roasted Duck, no skin not fat, just meat, and lots of it.

    various centers in Singapore: Gotta try the local food

    Singapore has great local food and affordable. A good meal will cost a few bucks. You will find the local goods at open aired hawker centers. Depending on the area-various hawker centers will have different items. They aren't all the same. There will be stalls of different types of Chinese, Malay, Muslim Indian and other goodies.

    Also you should try a curry puff. A small turnover filled with potato and spices. Sort of like a samosa.

    Here are some of the popular foods.

    Chinese:
    Char Kway Teow
    Ban Mian
    Chicken Rice

    Malay:
    Laksa
    Nasi Lemak
    Mee Rebus

    Indian Muslim:
    Roti Prata (meat or some come with fruit-mango, banana)For this go to Teka Market Hawker Center in Little India.
    Murtabak
    Biryani (chicken, lamb or mutton)
