Tiong Bahru Estate, Singapore

3.8
#48 of 200 in Shopping in Singapore
Tiong Bahru is very famous for the quality and range of the local food fare. In particular, Tiong Bahru market boasts some of the best hawker stalls in Singapore that tops the country’s eatery charts regularly. It is not uncommon for people living in other parts of Singapore to come all the way to Tiong Bahru to enjoy a simple meal of Char siew rice, stir-fried prawn noodles, and other local culinary delights. In a city-state abound with food courts, hawker centers and other eateries, this bears testament to the delectability and popularity of the food in Tiong Bahru.

Tiong Bahru Market, under the charge of the National Environment Agency, was, in fact, the first modern market to be built in a housing area, in 1955, by the SIT. Prior to the building of the Market, also known as Seng Poh Market, the hawkers were all street-hawkers, who were under constant threat of being chased off as street-trading was illegal. Tired of their uncertain lifestyle, the hawkers organised themselves and petitioned successfully to the Governor of Singapore, for a market to be built. The SIT thus, built an experimental modern market on the same spot as today's market.

  • Very nice n clean CC... and it's our very 1st Community Centre in SG. Presently, they have lotsa courses one may like to join. The CC staff here are also very friendly, kind, courteous and helpful. I joined and love the Taekwon-Do courses here... is on every Monday, 7.30pm. There are many Instructors here which I can learn a lot from. They are also very friendly, kind and helpful. If you interested in Taekwon-Do, I would recommend here. 👍👍👍
  • Sufficient activities to keep the community engage. there is a learning center within the compound. I really enjoy the older building structure and glad is part of the heritage trail.
  • Tiong Bahru Community Centre was Singapore's earliest community centre, with its history traced all the way back to 1948. Played basketball here at their newly renovated court. Great court. Good flood lights. Clean toilets. Convenient vending machine.
