Lunch in Singapore

I have an 11 hour layover in Singapore (land at 6:30am, depart for HCMC at 5:40pm) and I'd like to go into the city for lunch and a stroll. Where would be a good place to eat, preferably a Hawker Center? I'm thinking chili crab and chicken rice. I'd like to get a Singapore Sling at Raffles before returning to the airport - touristy, I know, but at least I can cross it off my bucket list.

Insider advice would be appreciated.

Thanks to its long history as a trade crossroads, and to its current prosperity and multicultural population, Singapore offers a rich variety of dining experiences. The islanders take restaurants very seriously, both for the food itself and for competitive status symbols. Here is a lively blog to whet your appetite Google will turn up plenty of hawker food courts and opinions of what dishes to seek while at the other end of the budget you can spend a mint and it will be worth it. Raffles' Sling is pricey too but quite tasty and the hotel is worth a quick look-around.

I would either go to Jumbo @ Dempsey Hill OR Lau Pa sat which is a hawker centre close to china town and the financial district ( which would also work if you plan to go to Raffles.)

Singapore Sling at Raffles--we did it for posterity and enjoyed!

The Long Beach (also near Dempsey) is also a good option for trying crab dishes, especially the black pepper crab.
