Glutton’s Bay, an outdoor hawker area just adjacent to the Esplanade buildings, is an award-winning hawker centre. The prices might be steeper than your average neighbourhood hawker centre, but the food is generally good. In fact, each hawker is handpicked by Makansutra (a hawker food rating “bible”). The stalls resemble old Chinese pushcarts, lined up in a single row. Though the place might seem slightly “touristy”, the ambience feels like that of a hawker centre, albeit with a nicer bay view!
Take a train to City Hall MRT station. The Esplanade is a short 10 minute walk through the underground City-Link mall.
