I visited Old Airport Food Centre once and since then, I have returned many more times to enjoy the goodness of the food. There are simply too many different stalls(western food, dim sum, tauhuey and many more) and i don't know where to start! Each time i visit the hawker centre, i look forward to trying new food, and it is hard to be disappointed by the food!

Newcomers take note! You may be taken aback by this. One thing that caught me about this place was that although there were many different stores, most of them sold the same food. For example, there are many stalls selling your local favourites such as char kway tiao and hokkien mee.

Although i have not tried all of the food there, i believe that they are of satisfactory standard considering that the food centre is always packed whenever i visit it. That, however, tends to make navigating and browsing through hawker stalls a more time-consuming process. All in all, i like this place very much and have brought many friends here who shared the same sentiments with me after their visits.

When reviewing eating places most of us tend to look out for the quality of the food only. But for hawker centres, I think one other important factor, often overlooked, is that of the number of stalls open at a given time. On this note, I must say that Old Airport seems to always have a large number of stalls open, even if the crowd is thin. As a result you can find good food even when it isn't lunch or dinner time.

Old Airport hawker centre is also fairly large, and thankfully its variety matches up to its size. You can get turtle soup, prawn noodles, goreng pisang, and rojak, to name but a few. And there are a good handful of famous stalls too! Most of these popular hawkers are located in the front row, facing the road.

Expect huge crowds at dinner times and on weekends. The lunch crowd is still manageable, probably due to the absence of office buildings in the immediate vicinity.

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.

I sometimes walk down to the Old Airport Road Food Centre to get lunch after climbing training at Guillemard road, and there are a few stalls I patronise. One such stall is Lao Fuzi Char Kway Teow. I’ve heard that the queue here can get really long, but have been really lucky so far.

On days that I feel like an after-lunch dessert, Old Airport Road does the trick too. Believe it or not, there is a stall selling gelato at the hawker centre. It is called Gelato Paradiso, and the pistachio flavour not only tastes really flavourful, but is also very smooth.

These two stalls I’ve mentioned are a testament to the eclectic mix of stalls that Old Airport Road Food Centre offers, and are why this food centre remains popular amongst the young and old alike.
