People who know me knows that I’m a huge wanton mee lover, and Hock Kee Wanton Noodle is one of the stalls that i’d definitely recommend you to try!

With a history of over 40 years, the current owner Mr Ong has been using the same recipe passed down from his father in cooking the wanton noodles! It has that old school taste that i really like, with super springy noodles, and drenched with a mixture of savoury seasoning and spicy homemade chilli sauce!

Do you like mee siam? If you a fan of this particular dish like i am, be sure to check out Hup Hup that’s located at Blk 80 Circuit Road Market & Food Centre!

I had high hopes for their mee siam as they were awarded TOP 10 in Singapore, and they totally deserve that accolade! The main highlight for me was the gravy which had fresh coconut milk in it, and tasted really appetising with a well-balanced combination of sweet, tangy and spicy! If you’re not a fan of mee siam, fret not as they also sell lor mee and laksa, which were both yummy as well! In addition, all their dishes are priced at $3/$3.50, really cheap and good! 👍

Throwback to happier makan-OUT days with the claypot rice from New Lucky Claypot Rice, a Michelin Bib Gourmand awarded stall located at Holland Drive Market & Food Centre.

The rice is cooked over charcoal stoves, so do expect a long waiting time during peak hours (Pro Tip: call them and order in advance to save on waiting time). Love the slightly charred and crispy rice crust topped with tender and juicy chicken! Elevate the taste further by mixing in sesame oil and dark sauce! Generous serving includes ingredients like Chinese sausages and salted fish too!

That said, they are currently only available for takeaway because of the circuit breaker rule, so do continue to support them and other local F&B businesses during this trying period through takeaway or food delivery services.

For something heavier on the palate, you can go for the Signature Fresh Lala Pasta which is very al dente or Fresh Lala in Homemade Garlic Butter Sauce (which comes with garlic bread). Both are drenched in a garlic butter sauce that’s so creamy and rich, with an addictive umami flavour!

Do you love lala (clams)? WaWa has got you covered with their variety of affordable (all priced under $10) lala specialties. Live clams are stored in display tanks at the store, scooped up and cooked upon order, so freshness is guaranteed!

For something lighter on the palate, you can go for the Signature Fresh Lala Soup (M-$5.90, L-$7.90) which was light yet flavourful, with choice of either tang hoon or bee tai Mak. Alternatively, the Fresh Lala Tasty Porridge is also a good choice with the subtle flavour of the porridge allowing the natural sweetness of the clams to shine!

Tried the prawn mee from this popular stall in Toa Payoh area recently, and it was pretty good! You get a pretty substantial portion for $5, and the noodles tasted really good after mixing it up with the savoury concocted sauce! Prawns were fresh too and the soup by the side was rich and flavourful! Will definitely be back again if i’m in the area and need a good prawn mee fix for dinner / supper!

I had raved about their Mac & Cheese in my previous post, and you’ll definitely love the Monterey Jack Chicken too it you’re a cheese lover! The cheese used here is made using cow’s milk, with a taste that is mild and slightly sweet. Coat all of that on a tender and juicy chicken and you’ll get a delicious combo that is one of their best sellers and a dish i’d highly recommend!

Like its stall name ‘BBW’ (which means big beautiful women in slang term), the grilled chicken chop here is certainly huge in portion and also very tasty as well. Char grilled till crispy on the outside, while remaining juicy internally and coated with a aromatic mushroom sauce, i can see why this is one of their best sellers! So tasty and value for money!

BBW Western Food is located at 7 Eunos Crescent (Hong Lee Coffeeshop) and serves restaurant quality western food at very affordable prices.

If there was a standout dish here, i would say probably the Mac & Cheese! Generously coated with 4 types of secret cheese, this is a dream for cheese lovers! So rich and creamy, every bite was very enjoyable!

First time visiting this stall, and although they are famous for their Tau Kwa Pau we opted for their braised duck rice instead.

The braised duck is not the most tender but its still really nice with a good firm bite. The lor bak though, is very tender with a melt in the mouth texture, highly recommend to add on! The savoury chilli that comes together with it is apparently what they use for the Tau Kwa Pau, and it went really well with duck rice too! Overall, a very good plate of braised duck rice plus add ons!

There is another famous duck rice stall in the same level, i’ll check out that stall next time and compare which is better.

Are you team black or white? I’m usually more partial towards the former but for this stall i felt both were equally good!

Carrot Cubes is run by a Gen-Y hawker lady and the carrot cake here are freshly handmade daily. The black carrot cake had a good balance of sweet and savoury while the white version was fragrant and well fried. For the more adventurous, they also offer Thai Style and Bacon versions.

Do drop by to show your support for our young hawker and help preserve our hawker culture!
