I have been eating at this hawker centre since I was in primary school, and till today, the popular stalls like char kway teow, wan ton noodle, otak, BBQ chicken wings, kway chap, oyster omelette etc are all still there.

These days the draw is probably the popular Lao Ban Dou Hua which has various stalls all over the food centre. You just can't miss it! I have ever been tasked by friends just to go there to take away more than 20 boxes of dou hua for a friend's house party!

Parking can be a headache on weekends even with the multistorey and open carparks behind so I prefer going there on weekdays.

This hawker centre is huge and it is filled with tons of local delicacies such as chicken rice, laksa and nasi lemak, You name it you got it. My favourite dish is definitely the fish slice noodle soup! I will normally order fried fish with milk and end my meal with a bowl of Lao Ban Tau Huay.

The place can get quite crowded around dinner time so either go earlier or later to get a seat.

Located at Dakota, Old Airport Road Food Centre is well known for their exceptional hawker food in Singapore where you can find all your local delicacies like Hokkien Mee, Laksa, Carrot Cake etc. The variety of food is wide enough for anyone and everyone, making it a perfect place to go with your family and friends.

My personal favorite has to be the Blanco Court kway chap. There is always a long queue so be prepared to wait at least 20-30 minutes. Trust me, it’s worth the wait. Nam Xing hokkien mee, Lao Fu Zhi char kway teow and Albert Street’s prawn mee are the few dishes I always order with my friends to share, because they’re just that good.

Overall, you will never get disappointed at Old Airport Road because there are so many stalls you can choose from. Every Singaporean should definitely visit at least once in their lifetime.

Old Airport Road Hawker Centre has always been held dear to my family's heart as it is always a place for us to have simple local foodfare. 

However, prices have risen and some stores do not offer that affordable food anymore compared to other hawker stores. In addition, it's getting increasingly crowded on weekends compared to two years back so I would advise you to go early perhaps 5pm.

Some stores I would recommend you to try:

1. Lao Fuzi Char Kway Teow

Always always a long queue here so be prepared!

2. Holy Grill

If I'm not wrong I read online that this store originates from the TKGS canteen, before owners decided to shift it to Old Airport Road!

3. Whitley Road Big Prawn Noodles

Extremely love the soup as it's quite flavourful, portion wise it's not exactly huge so if you have a big appetite, this isn't what you should crave for. 


4. Tong Kee BBQ Chicken Wing

I remember the price rose by around $0.20 per chicken wing and portions became much smaller :( but if you're going for quality, this is the right place to go! Quality assured, I've been patronizing the store since forever. 

What I wouldn't recommend is the Toa Payoh Rojak. For ages many have been telling me to go try it, and it was a huge disappointment. (This was two years back, never tried it ever again. The store opening hours are inconvenient too.) There was only a lady serving and she was incredibly slow. Rojak quality wasn't amazingly good, just average. And portion was selfishly little.

Absolutely love heading to this massive food centre for dinner.
There's so many local delights to choose from, perfect for locals as well as tourists who wants a taste of the local cruisine.

My favourite picks has to be the delicious Xiao Long Bao, one tray has about 7 and cost only $3.50. Infact I like them more than those at Ding Tai Feng.
There is also satay, chee cheong fan, oyster omelette, and Ngor hiang.

I'll have to admit that Old Airport Road consists of the best foods in Singapore, and one of the biggest as well. The queues at the stalls of this hawker is always so long at dinner times, but everyone still queues up anyway because the food is worth the wait.

Even though it was years ago when I first went to airport road, I still remember the fried oyster with egg and the hokkien mee that I ate in that hawker centre. Under the sweltering heat, a huge cup of sugar cane juice coming at only $1(at that time), and a plate of hokkien mee priced at $2-$3, I sat along the first row of the hawker, wondering when's the next time I'll get to eat it again.

However, the hawker has seats inbetween the rows of stalls, that are not sheltered. These seats are often either very hot, or are wet with the rain. That is something that I find seemingly disturbing.

LAO BAN!!!
Overall Score 
 
4.0
Honestly when I think of Old Airport Road the first thing that comes to my mind is Lao Ban soybean curd, the best soybean curd I've ever tasted in Singapore. It is a must to buy this whenever I visit Old Airport Road, and sometimes I would go there just to buy Lao Ban!

Other than that, I have tried a few of the dishes there like ba kut teh and meepok etc. To me they taste the same as any other hawker centre in Singapore. I think Singapore hawker centres are pretty good in their consistency. There is no one hawker centre that pales greatly in comparison to the others dotted around the island.

For first timers to Old Airport Road, you can miss any stall but Lao Ban! (Unless you are allergic to soybean curd hahaha) but seriously, go for it.

Great variety of local delights

Besides having a wide variety of local delights at affordable prices, another plus point of Old Airport Road Food Centre is how conveniently it is located. Just under a 10 minutes walk away is Dakota Circle Line and that is also one factor that will bring me back to the place again and again.

Lots of famous food stalls can be found here and you will be spoilt for choice once you step in. It is usually very crowded and getting a table can be quite difficult. They have outdoor seating areas too but it can be quite warm sitting outside under the scorching sun during the day.

The more famous stalls would be Lao Ban bean curd, which is a current fad. You will often see people buying 10 bowls at a go. Other stalls worth trying are the prawn noodles, wanton mee (this is stall facing the entrance; there is usually a queue for this), lor mee, kuay chap and a whole lot of other famous local dishes. I recently patronized a Western stall called "London Grill" and liked the food quite a lot. The chicken chop that I ordered was tender and succulent and came in a big portion.

Considering how conveniently located this hawker is and how much good food it houses, this is a definite must go for food lovers.

The truth is, you could pay me in Lao Ban and I would be a very very happy girl. Just the thought of that silky, cold, sweet beancurd sliding down my throat is giving me goosebumps, I need my fix now!

Other than Lao Ban of course, this hawker centre has plenty more to offer. Like any other hawker centre, you get your usual stuff like noodles, fried rice yada yada. But there's something about Old Airport Road that is different from other hawker centres. I feel like there's almost an infectious energy in the air and I love walking around and counting the number of containers of Lao Ban people have bought.

Needless to say, the prices here are super affordable, being a hawker centre and its a great place to bring friends and family, especially if they're new to Singapore!

This hawker at old airport road is considered one of the best hawkers in Singapore. Last year was a good year for its popularity gained a new level after the outburst of “lao ban tao huay” trend. Adding on to that, Dakota MRT was finally completed last year, making the hawker MUCH more accessible than before. For the benefit of those who doesn’t drive, to get to the hawker, simply take the circle line to Dakota Mrt. The hawker is just a 5 minutes’ walk away from the MRT station.

Though many people have told me to go in the afternoons if I want to avoid the massive crowd in the evenings, I prefer not to do so. Reason being, you risk having most of the popular stalls closed! I don’t remember the names of most stalls however; usually the long queues and certificates will suggest that they are pretty popular. The must orders in this hawker: Rojak, Carrot Cake, Hokkien Mee, Lao Ban, prawn noodles. Avoid the zi char stalls there as they are usually half past six.
