You're sure to encounter a lot of hipsters taking pictures of their coffee at Instagrammable cafés if you go to Tiong Bahru on the weekends. TBM's local food is one of the best things to do in Singapore, even if you're not a hipster, and it's a lot less expensive than $5 coffee. See my Tiong Bahru guide for a full list of activities.
Although Tiong Bahru Food Centre has been there since 1955, it has just been rebuilt. In my opinion, it's Singapore's cleanest and most inviting hawker center.
Compared to other shopping malls, Tiong Bahru Market's design stands out. An open-air space and a ventilated covered market are included in the design. An advantage for foodies compared to other crowded areas of the city is the spaciousness of this location.
The Tiong Bahru Market, a well-known landmark, is another notable feature. The first level of the complex houses it. It's a must-see after you've had some delectable Singaporean delicacies at one of the second floor's finest food booths. Fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and seafood may be found in plenty in the wet market. You'll be able to locate a wide range of different products here, just as in other shopping malls.
Even while Tiong Bahru has gained a reputation as a hipster haven, it is also known for its abundance of Singaporean hawker fare. A well-known hawker area in Singapore, Tiong Bahru Market, is located in the neighborhood's core and is popular with both Singaporeans and foreigners.
The popular food centre is located on the second level of the new triplex, which also contains a market and a parking garage. Some of the Bib Gourmands in the Michelin Guide, notably Hong Heng Fried Sotong Prawn Noodles, may be found in the large food hall, along with long-standing favorites.
This isn't your run-of-the-mill café list. Tiong Bahru Market is a monument that most young people are unaware of, despite its prominence in a neighborhood brimming with both ancient and contemporary attractions.
Tiong Bahru Market has been a go-to lunch haunt and culinary sanctuary for local families since coming into the neighborhood five years ago, through untold bowls of noodles, recurrent lunchtime jokes, and lengthy silences caused by food coma (or just our simple discomfort).
As a token of gratitude to the building and sellers of the food center, this guide provides a glimpse into the history and culture of the area to anyone who are inquisitive, lost, or hungry.
Some users have contacted us letting us know about suspicious phone calls they have received from supposed representatives of the Tiong Bahru Market. Please be aware that no such representatives exist. We believe this to be some kind of phone scam. They seem to be targeting small businesses in and around the area.
The person calling is asking for money under the guise of giveaways and competitions. They ask you for money upfront and then claim that you will be entered into a competition held by the market. We were able to identify one such phone number after one of our readers emailed us. After researching on bye.fyi, we were able to find a report left by someone on the phone number 64620654. As you can see, this seems somewhat widespread. If you get a similar phone call, please contact the consumer association. We will update you when we get more information.
All the opening times for the shops are highlighted next to the store names. The times may change depending on the day. If you feel like going to shopping centers around the market area, you can find various websites that will tell you what stores are available in the different shopping centers. You can also grab some food if you need a break. Food stores have their opening times available on their respective sites. For example, if you fancy a McDonalds, you can use Mcdonalds stores locator to find the nearest restaurant and their opening times. If you want more options, you can use a more comprehensive website like Store Opening Times to see the opening times and addresses of thousands of stores. Plan head and you can have a great day out with the family.
