Since the good old days, the Singapore River has been a place for foodies. In 1970, the Singapore River was already a gathering place for food hawkers and their customers. Three years later in 1973, the Boat Quay Food Centre was built to cater to the working class people in the area. To make way for MRT construction and redevelopment plans, this hawker centre was eventually demolished. Today fortunately, the riverside area remains a food haven for locals and tourists alike. With dozens of pubs, restaurants and cafés serving a delectable range of food from all around the world, visitors are often spoilt for choice.
