Satay bee hoon is usually not the most common local dish in one’s mind when it comes to hawker food. It’s in fact one of the dishes that is slowly fading away and not many stalls serve it as the preparation involved is laborious.

I seldom have this dish and it’s not something that I would usually order. For Westies, Sin Chew is the to-go place to enjoy this dish where queues are commonplace.

So what’s satay bee hoon? Bee hoon cooked al dente, squid, prawn, cockles, cuttlefish, pork slices and kangkung, satay sauce. It’s origins are pretty unknown but Teochews are commonly associated with this dish.

I like how the dish is drowned in heaps of satay sauce. The satay sauce is rather sweet, not oily and spicy. So for those who can’t handle chilli well, this shouldn’t be an issue.

The servings are rather generous for the price points ($4. $5, $6). They also serve cuttlefish kangkung which I haven’t tried.

The four-day work week they enjoy is a testament to their popularity. A privilege that many individuals would wish to have.

New stall are bukit timah food centre! Selling various types of bowls with peach gum including longan red dates, goji, almond milk.


My FAVOURITE kaya toast and eggs in Singapore! The bread is thicker than that used by popular chain Ya Kun, and I prefer it this way because it allows me to enjoy the fluffiness of the bread. The butter is sliced and slapped on the bread as a cold, thick square and the kaya is very fragrant. The eggs are also extremely delicious -- not sure what kind of eggs the owner uses, but they are very much bigger than normal eggs! Special mention must go to the drinks as well, though it has been less consistent lately -- possibly as the owner gets on in age. Nevertheless, this stall is by far one of my favourite local breakfasts in Singapore.

Hands down my favourite Penang char kway teow ($4)!! It deserves a much better photo but just look at the generous portion of noodles and ingredients. Each plate is cooked fresh and has the best wok hei flavour! I always ask for extra chilli :-) the prawn noodles / lor mee here is also really popular! #oldisgold

Mutton / Chicken / Pork satay: $0.60 per stick
Min. Order 10 sticks
Ketupat: $0.60 per piece

Stall closes around 9pm (come by 8.30pm to be safe).

The business is brisk and the stall owners have a clear system (1 person cooks the satay, 1 plates, 1 takes order and delivers the completed order).

I ordered some for a Christmas gathering.

This is a relatively new stall compared to the other heavy weights at this food centre, but this far surpasses Xie Kee Hokkien Mee! With noodles perfectly cooked, a flavourful broth, plenty of ingredients and chilli that packs a punch, this is definitely the Hokkien mee ($3) I’ll queue for every time 🥳🌟
