Singapore: Which Hawker Center?

Thanks FourSeasons. Sounds great! Looks like they're right on the MRT line too.

Singapore: Which Hawker Center?

Hi All.
I've read a whole bunch of very informative posts on where/what to eat in Singapore, and it all sounds good, thank you! I'm a little overwhelmed though and need help narrowing it down.

I'm from Los Angeles, single and female. I just have one afternoon/evening - plane gets in at noonish, then have to head back to the airport for bedtime (staying at the ridiculously priced Crowne Plaza in Changi Airport).

From what everybody has said, sounds like I should find a Hawker Center and just stay there and eat all afternoon/evening, since I'm alone and to get the most variety. I've been to Newton Hawker Center a few years ago and liked it, although the heat/humidity kind of got to me.

I don't speak Mandarin, don't really know the proper names for most dishes, and will be there alone, but love trying new things and like most everything. I don't mind hanging out alone, but a place with either (a) a/c and stores to go shopping (mall?) or (b) fresh outdoor ambiance (?) would be good, so I can sit with my book in between eating.

So which one would you recommend for me?
Thanks in advance!

ISO Restaurant w/ meeting room on West Side

My professional group is looking for restaurants on the west side (Santa Monica, Westwood, Olympic/405 area) with a private room to hold monthly dinner meetings. Our group size varies from about 20 to about 35.

I searched and found a few threads on here, and already know about Kula (aka Aphrodesiac aka Lunaria) and Olympic Collection, but didn't see any other appropriate places in the area.

We're trying to stay on a budget ($35-40pp).

Anybody know of any other places with private rooms I should talk to?

I'd rather not go to Beverly Hills or the Valley or further south than say Pico due to traffic issues.

Thanks in advance!
