Eat, pray, love: Inside the hidden food court underneath a Chinatown temple, Lifestyle News

It is hard to miss the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple when in Chinatown.
While many are aware that the five-storey temple houses relics and a theatre, it is also home to a hidden gem.
Unbeknown to most, there is an air-conditioned food court that serves vegetarian food at this place of worship.
In a post to the Facebook group Hawkers United – Dabao 2020 on Oct 24, Don Leow shared how he too was unaware of the food court’s existence until recently.
Without being introduced to it by a friend, Don wouldn’t have even known about the food court.
Right off the bat, he was impressed with the cleanliness and serene vibes. He loved the interior and recommended it to those who are looking “to be served a decent meal”.
Visitors would have a decent selection of food from four vegetarian stalls – the mixed rice stall, the wanton noodles stall, a western food stall and a drink station.
A TikTok clip posted on Oct 25 by Chinatownsingapore includes directions to the food court, should you be interested.
Do take note of this food court’s operating hours and plan your breakfast or lunch visits accordingly.
Address: 288 South Bridge Road, Buddha Tooth Relic Temple
Opening hours: Daily, 9am to 2.30pm
