While the upper floors sell everything from saris to CDs, the ground level is largely a hawker centre with stalls turning out curries, briyani rice, roti murtabak (flatbread stuffed with minced meat and onion), dosai (lentil pancakes with curry), and Indian-style fried noodles — bright red from the added chilli. Wash it down with some chai tea, freshly squeezde lime juice, or even a beer.

The hawker centre was completely renovated in 2010 and the fans are a thoughtful touch.
