Get To Know The Food Center Featured in Crazy Rich Asians
It was the perfect backdrop for Rachel Chu's first meal in Singapore!
In the much-anticipated film Crazy Rich Asians, Rachel Chu and Nick Young are welcomed to Singapore by the soon-to-be-wed couple, Araminta Lee and Colin Khoo. They all go out on a food trip at Singapore's Newton Food Centre, dubbed as a place where you can sample all the best local eats. With close to 100 stalls, it's no wonder that it was chosen as one of the film's shoot locations. A mouthwatering montage of the food market's different offerings like the curry laksa, chili crabs, ice kachang (Singapore's version of halo-halo) and sticks of satays (skewered turmeric-marinated meat) was just one of the many food moments to watch for in the film.
Afternoons at the Newton Food Center are perfect for people who like a more laid-back ambiance.
These are all delicious staples in every food fan's Singapore itinerary but there's just so much more to be discovered at the Newton Food Centre. To get your food itinerary started, we rounded up some food finds at Newton Food Centre:
