Food gems in Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre Ask me for the most famous food stalls in Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre and the first few names that come to mind include the famed Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle and Garden Street Kway Chap. However, if you’re a Serangoon-er like me who tried every stall there, you will know that the food centre offers way more than those names. Here are 10 food stalls at Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre that are lesser known but serve food that will not lose out to the big names! 1. Hokee Wo Lai Ye Image credit: @ivanity07 Hokkee Wo Lai Ye is one of the latest additions to Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre, but definitely not a new name in the hawker trade. Started in 1970 by Madam Sau, the stall was popular for offering generous portions of rice and free soup to workers who were struggling to pay for meals. Today, the stall is run by Madam Sau’s son and they continue to serve their affordable Soy Sauce Chicken Rice ($3). If you are hooked on their tender and well-marinated Soy Sauce Chicken, you can order the […]

Stalls to check out at Hong Lim Food Centre As compared to the nearby Chinatown Complex and Maxwell Food Centre, Hong Lim Food Centre is quieter, with shorter queues and empty tables when it’s not lunch hour. However, that doesn’t mean this two-storey hawker centre is not filled with good food. In fact, it’s home to a Michelin Bib Gourmand stall! From curry chicken noodles to fruit juice crayfish mee siam, here are 10 dishes at Hong Lim Food Centre I would eat on repeat. 1. Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee   Image credit: @joewee72 Boasting a 90-minute queue at certain hours, Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee fries up a plate of wok hei goodness. Peppered with cockles, crunchy tau gay, and pork lard, the smokey noodles will only set you back $3. It’s uber addictive, as the heat from the chilli balances out the flavours, cutting through the grease and sweetness of the black sauce. Unit number: #02-18 Opening hours: Mon-Sat 6am to 3:30pm 2.  Tai Wah Pork Noodle Image credit: @tzyychinnloh    Many confuse this hawker stall with the famous Michelin-starred Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle. After all, they are very similar in presentation, name, […]

Dumplings Cafe is a quaint eatery with vintage feels As someone who is a sucker for pretty packaging, Dumplings Cafe lured me in with their aesthetically pleasing food and cool vibes. They are located at Thomson Plaza, a place for respite from the usual hustle and bustle in town. Adding to the list of eateries and good food at the Upper Thomson area, this cafe has set itself apart from the rest. They boast a menu of delicious food that is relatively healthy and nourishing, with a good experience to boot. Food at Dumplings Cafe Dumplings Cafe’s Dumplings Platter ($13) was what really caught our attention. It features a plate of dumplings that come in pairs of the following colours: white, yellow, orange, purple, and green. The dumpling skins are naturally dyed and made fresh daily with vegetables, and each dumpling pockets different kinds of fillings. My colleagues and I have only heard of colourful xiao long bao, and colourful dumplings are definitely a first. The violet dumplings were my favourite out of the five. Made purple with sweet potatoes, these dumplings burst with the distinct taste of beef. The fillings are sweetened with cabbage, which also added a slight […]

Zion Riverside Food Centre offers plenty of good food River Valley Road is a snaking road of private properties and popular eating spots such as Boon Tong Kee and Spize. Despite being an atas area, you can still find cheap grub at Zion Riverside Food Centre. Located right in front of Singapore River, it is a haven of good food albeit being one of the smallest food centres. Here are our picks of food you should try when you’re at Zion Riverside Food Centre. 1. No. 18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow Image credit: @xtranize When talking about the food at Zion Riverside Food Centre, No. 18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow tops the list without fail. Ladened with pork lard and wok hei, many customers fall head over heels for their popular Char Kway Teow ($4/$5/$6). Not only is the portion substantial, the dish doesn’t lack in the taste department. Every mouthful is a blessing; the matrimony of savoury soya sauce, crispy lard, and a breath of the wok packs a flavoursome mouthful which hits all the right spots. Unit number: #01-17 Opening hours: Daily 12:30pm to 10pm (closed on alternate Mondays) 2. Boon Tong Kee Kway Chap Braised Duck Image credit: […]

SimpleBurger Inc at Maju Avenue Although I write about food for a living, my brother has always been the food enthusiast in our family. So it was not out of nature when he came gushing about a new burger joint, SimpleBurger Inc, located in the basement of myVillage shopping mall. When I asked him why he felt the stall is worth a visit, he emphasised on the joint’s unique customisable burger concept and free, unlimited vegetable toppings. Feeling convinced, I headed down to SimpleBurger Inc to sample the burgers myself. Food at SimpleBurger Inc Out of the three different burgers we got, I was most eager to try the Natural Beef Patty Burger ($11). What makes this special and unlike their regular beef burger, which costs $9, is the Natural Beef Patty that is not seasoned and contains a mix of two cuts – ribeye and striploin. I enjoyed the smokey, grilled beef patty immensely, as it was tender and not at all tough. The burger buns holding it were warm and delectably crisp too, from being toasted. There was also a dollop of bacon jam included beneath the patty for an extra sweet punch; I came to find out that this […]

Black and white fried carrot cake Fried Carrot Cake, or more commonly known as Chai Tow Kway to the Chinese, is a dish that screams “Singapore!”. Coming in both black and white versions, there are certain criteria for a plate of fried carrot cake to be deemed shiok. Moist and laced with a wok hei aroma for the black, sweet version, and a crispy exterior with soft interior for the white version. And of course, the serving and balance of the eggs and chye poh have a part to play too. Here are 10 carrot cake stalls I believe are well worth travelling around our Little Red Dot for! 1. Fu Ming Cooked Food Image credit: @tame_bunny If I had to choose my favourite carrot cake stall of all time, it would be Fu Ming Cooked Food. Both their Black and White Carrot Cake ($2 each) are equally outstanding. The size of the radish cakes in the white version are inconsistent; the bigger pieces are mushy, while the smaller pieces are fried till crispy and slightly charred. The stall owner adds dark sweet sauce twice to the black version, giving the dish a shiny glaze and honeyed tang. Address: 85 Redhill […]

Sing HK Cafe is a hidden gem in the West Sing HK Cafe used to be located at Everton Park. They offered “cha chan teng” delights like slow-cooked pork belly rice and Hong Kong Maggie noodles. Before I could find time to make my way down, it closed its doors for relocation. But thankfully for me, Sing HK Cafe resumed its operations in Jurong. As a Westie, I couldn’t be happier! However, the menu has been scaled down, and they only kept their signature dishes like their salt baked chicken, braised pork belly, and dry noodles. Food at Sing HK Cafe When I first laid eyes on their Signature Salt Baked Chicken Noodle ($6.50), I was intrigued; it reminded me of paper-wrapped chicken I used to love when I was a kid. The chef-owner peeled open the crisp, sauce-stained waxed paper, revealing not only the deliciously browned chicken thigh, but its aromatic essences as well. The size of the salt baked chicken was as wide as my fist and I could barely lift it up with just my chopsticks. Placing it gingerly back down, we decided to give it the ultimate tender test. With my chopsticks, I poked through the […]

Jue Dai Lor Mee Image credit:@beef_nuggets Jue Dai Lor Mee is located at Ci Yuan Hawker Centre in Hougang. At only $2.80,  their Yam Roll Lor Mee is one of the cheapest in Singapore. The yam roll is crispy and aromatic, adding a nice, crunchy texture to the otherwise gelatinous spoonful of noodles and sauce. They also offer a Cod Fish Lor Mee for $4; an interesting version to try when you’re feeling richer. Address: 51 Hougang Avenue 9, #01-13, Ci Yuan Hawker Centre, Singapore 530917 Opening hours: Daily 8am to 9:45pm 2.
