Where are the cheapest hawkers, foodcourts or restaurants in the CBD area?

I'm starting work tomorrow at Raffles Place, and the few times I was there I spent more than $12 for meals there. Is there any place that can offer cheaper food? Or should I start bringing in my own meals?

      I vote 100% Amoy food center haha.

      We worked there for around 6 months? And we were lucky to be in between Maxwell and Amoy. But overtime, if you really think of both value for money and delicious food, there is no better place than amoy!

      Maxwell was more touristy largely due to the chicken rice shop (but it's pretty legit) but overall prices there abit more expensive.

    MARKET STREET is my fav hahaha...

    Half a chicken with 2 plates of rice is just S$10 bucks. Comfortable meal for 2 guys hahaha.

    If not, the chicken rice starts from S$2.50 per plate
