Ignore the touts

What we say: 3 stars

Just one MRT stop from Orchard Road, Newton is as famous for overcharging tourists as it is for seafood.

Ignore the touts who try to direct you to a table near their stall — you're free to sit anywhere — and browse the catch of the day displayed on ice in front of each stall. While chilli crab is the obvious choice, black pepper crab, crispy cereal prawns, grilled fish, and spicy sambal stingray are just as delicious — always ask the price (usually quoted per 100 grams) before ordering fresh seafood. If seafood's not your thing there's also chicken satay, fried carrot cake, chicken rice and noodles.
