The Geylang Serai Market lies in the heart of the Singapore Malay community and has been recently remodelled to embrace the rustic quality of the old Malay kampong houses. This famous market has two levels, with a wet market selling all sorts of fresh produce on the ground floor, from live fish to spices, and a food centre on the second.
Fantastic food awaits at the food stalls, featuring predominately Malay and Indian cuisine. Hajjah Mona Nasi Padang and Geylang Briyani Hall are some of the well-known stalls to check out, dishing out mouth-watering dishes including Asam Pedas stingray (spicy stingray) and chicken Briyani (Indian-style chicken rice). If you happen to be there during breakfast, GS Oli Thosei & Food Stall is a great place to enjoy Appom (Indian rice dish), Thosai (Indian pancake) and Masala chicken (spiced chicken). Be sure to go early for these dishes often sell out before noon.
This iconic landmark subtly blends rustic Malay charm with pleasurable dining, and is a must visit for culture vultures and foodies alike.
