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:¬†
