The Old Airport Road Food Centre is famed for its size and sheer variety of local food offerings. Locals flock to the area during lunch and dinner hours, making it one of the most packed food centres in Singapore. Is it worth the wait?

My personal favourite is the Lao Fu Zi char kuay teow. This dish brings diners back in time to the 1970's when char kway teow was made by fishermen and farmers who doubled up as hawkers at night to supplement their day income. This char kway teow is flavourful and well-seasoned with dark soy sauce. If you are like me and you like extra cockles with your kway teow, the Lao Fu Zi cockles are decent and fresh. It is often named as one of the top few char kway teow stalls in Singapore.

Other famous food stalls include Freshly Made Chee Cheong Fun, Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee, and Holy Grill. Expect a long queue for these stalls during peak hours thanks to word of their tastiness spreading high and low throughout Singapore.

At the end of the day, the Old Airport Road food centre offers tremendous value for money, trading off ambience and comfort. Every Singaporean should visit it at least once in their lifetime.
