Back at my all time favourite wanton noodle joint again. Taste is consistently excellent with the al-dente noodles & fatty char siew. Yums!


Yummy nasi ayam goreng can be found at the 6th floor of Lucky Plaza. The chicken is fried till super crispy and the meat is juicy & tender. The rice is fragrant and the sambal chilli is solid. You can ask for more crumbs too! Do check out this hidden gem in town.


This Hokkien mee brand has been around since the 1970s from a pushcart stall till now (helmed by the 3rd generation) having different branches across a number of food courts in Singapore.

The hokkien mee style here is the very wet version, with noodles coated in an umami-laden gravy. Overall it is fragrant (with the noodles served in opeh leaves), and features a generous amount of prawns & squid complemented by a nice sambal chilli with the right heat.


Cheap & good nasi lemak found here at Whampoa Food Centre! This stall always has a queue, and i can see why.

The rice & sambal chilli (2 components which makes or breaks a nasi lemak for me) were both excellent, and there were a variety of ingredients to choose from too! I would recommend getting the chicken wings as they were very crispy & nice.


This is the branch of the popular handmade noodles outlet over at Geylang Lorong 32.

I used to come here often for the noodles back when I was still studying nearby at Temasek Poly; and the taste is still good after all these years.

My preference is for the Ban-Mian, with good clean flavourful soup mixed together with the runny egg. The meatballs were not bad, quite firm & chewy. I like their chilli sauce too, fiery with a good kick.

A plate of mouth watering fried Hokkien prawn noodles that you should not miss. It is delicious and one plate is never enough! The ingredients are fresh and the chilli is good. A good find in Newton Food Centre!

Stall 24, Newton Food Centre


Springy noodles paired with sweet caramelised char siew & flavourful sauce. And to make things better, it's located no more than a stone's throw away from my house!


Opened by a former Crystal Jade director, this stall located in the coffeeshop above Bishan bus Interchange specialises in Shanxi cuisine.

The Hot & Spicy Intestine La Mian (you can opt for shaved noodles too) in particular was very enjoyable. Just imagine those fat & juicy intestines paired with handmade noodles that were so springy & supple; while the mala broth was spicy and had that extra oomph to it.


Not the best char kway teow (not in my top 5 at least) but certainly one of the better ones i’ve tried.

It was a joy watching the elderly couple in action, with the friendly aunty taking orders and the uncle frying each plate of char kway teow with gusto. Come support them before they are gone for good eventually.


There are two famous soya sauce chicken joints in this stretch of road and this is the one that has ‘2nd floor’ with aircon.

I personally feel the soya sauce chicken here tastes better than their competitor down the road with a more herbal flavour, while the noodles are the qq springy type. Yummy!


This is one of the more popular stalls at Newton Food Centre and the carrot cake here sure did not disappoint.

The carrot cake was fried to the point of crispy yummy, making each bite a delight. An overall dish I’d definitely order again.


This popular zi char spot has been around for as long as i can remember, and besides their zi char dishes which are good for sharing, they do individual set meals too.

I would recommend going for their sambal stingray or sambal sotong sets; each set comes with rice and egg. Yummy & value for money!
