I was at Chinatown Food Complex last year and there weren't many long queues although quite a number of stalls have been there for decades.  I could be wrong but I feel that the hawker culture in Singapore is slowly dying.

I think it depends on the timing of when u visit. For sure, the chicken rice always long queue. It tastes nice but I think the queue is long becos it's cheap. S$7 for 1/2 chicken.

I went at around 1pm+ on a weekday.  I think there is more than 1 stall selling soya chicken and definitely a few more selling roast/steamed chicken.  If I remember correctly, the longest queue I saw was at a coffee stall with ah pek regulars sitting nearby for their TCSS sessions.

The Michelin Guide has renamed carrot cake as turnip pudding.  ;D

I remember watching an episode of 美食大三通 showing Singaporean food some time ago and the host ranked a soya chicken stall in Chinatown among the top 3 dishes he ever had on 美食大三通.  I did a search and it was the same stall that got the Michelin star.  Looks like that host/chef knows his stuff.

The chinatown market is divided into a few sections. Some of the sections will concentrate more on the breakfast and lunch crowd and others for the dinner crowd. The dinner crowd stalls are mostly zichar with steam fishhead and lots of beer around.

There are several repeat stalls, the famous soya sauce chicken is further away from the escalator. The "chop carrot" stalls are more concentrated near the escalator...

I feel that people nowadays tend to queue up for stalls with the best reputation.  There may be stalls in the same market with shorter queues but deliver good quality food too.

Yes I think so, the guy with specs.  I've seen him cooking on the show for the locals a few times.

Yup, 詹姆士.  The soya chicken stall owner was very humble and asked him for tips to improve his chicken but 詹姆士 exclaimed "What can he suggest when their business is already so good?!"

Has anyone eaten at Wang Da Ye before? It's at Mosque St. I always see a long queue whenever I pass by. Any reviews?
