Newton Food Centre (GPS: 1.31156, 103.83941; Simplified/Traditional Chinese: 纽顿熟食中心, Pinyin: Niǔdùn Shúshí Zhōngxīn) is one of the most popular hawker centres in Singapore. It is located to the immediate south of the Newton Circus, in Newton, Singapore.

Although Newton Food Centre dates back to 1971, the present incarnation dates to 9 July, 2006, when it was officially reopened by Ms Indranee Thurai Rajah, the Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC. This hawker centre was one of the early ones created by the Singapore government to move hawkers from the streets into permanent locations, for sanitary and hygiene concerns.

The Newton Food Centre closed for a complete makeover in 2005. During that time, the hawkers were relocated to a temporary site off Bukit Timah Road, which was not the most ideal, as it lacked parking space.

My visit to Newton Food Centre

I visited the Newton Food Centre on 27 July, 207. I was brought there by Singapore's food oracle, KF Seetoh, who wanted to introduce me to the food available at the hawker centre.

Hup Kee Fried Oyster Omelette

The first stall we visited was Hup Kee Fried Oyster Omelette. The stall has passed from father to son, so now it is the son who does the stir frying, while the mother helps out. Seetoh ordered a dish of oyster omelette. The oysters are big, fresh and succulent. Unlike in Penang, they are fried separately from the egg, so they do not mix together. This is how it looks like.

Soon Wah Fishball Kway Teow Mee Stall

The second stall we patronised was Soon Wah Fishball Kway Teow Mee stall. The stall has big pails filled with fishballs. Seetoh ordered a bowl of "Fishball Mee Dry" for mee. It has noodles that looked like thick wanton noodles. The fishballs were big and bouncy. Next to them are the wanton, which are translucent. Everything was delicious and I wanted to finish the whole bowl, but Seetoh cautioned me not to finish everything, because he was going to take me to yet another stall.

Kwang Kee Teochew Fish Porridge 光记潮洲鱼粥

The third and final stall we visited at Newton Food Centre was this one, Kwang Kee Teochew Fish Porridge, located on a different side of the hawker centre. It sells Teochew porridge, a watery porridge with greens and chunks of fish meat. I enjoyed the succulent pieces of fish meat as well as the soup itself. I ate mostly the meat, and not much of the rice porridge, as I was getting quite full.
