This humble stall has been serving up good quality old school western food in the quiet neighbourhood of Jalan Selaseh for years now. They may be located in a ‘ulu’ area, but they have their fair share of regular customers and waiting time can get very long during peak hours.

I like their chicken cutlet, so delicious and comes in a huge portion. It is also served with my favourite fried bun. Sinful but shiok and most importantly value for money!

Ranked as one of the best char kway teows in Singapore, this stall always has a long queue at Zion Food Centre. The portion is definitely generous; with a good amount of fishcake, beansprouts, chinese sausage, pork lard and fresh cockles! Overall the taste is really yummy; it has a right balance of sweet and savoury filled with a strong wok hei flavour. Definitely a must try if you’re in the area and have time to spare (cos of the long waiting time).

I have visited this dessert stall many times and amazingly i only tried their Power Chendol for the first time recently (always went for their Gangster Ice).

The chendol was so good! What hit me was the thick and decadent gula melaka atop finely shaved ice, all in its gooey and sticky glory. Complementing that shiokness were fresh coconut milk, red beans, green jelly and attap chee. Oh god, craving for a bowl of Power Chendol now as i’m writing this review, especially in hot weather days like these...

Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle certainly needs no introduction. Wok hei infused fried noodles swimming in a flavourful and slurpy prawn stock, served with spicy sambal belacan chilli. Every mouthful was a delight!

When you talk about the best prawn noodles in Singapore, this place is certainly amongst them. The soup is the main star with all its robustness and umami, followed by the fresh prawns and tender pig’s tail. At the same coffeeshop, do get the wu xiang / ngoh hiang to go with your prawn noodles. It is one of the better ones we’ve tried too!

The ever so popular Yan Ji Seafood Soup began as a humble hawker stall that has now expanded with 3 branches located in Marsiling Mall, Far East Plaza and Funan.

Every bowl is prepared to order; ensuring each ingredient is cooked perfectly. The robust broth was swimming with fresh prawns, fish, clams, and well-seasoned handmade minced meat. All in all, a hearty seafood soup that i'll definitely be back for.

Whenever we’re near Kovan and craving for some good kway chap, this is our go-to stall. The handmade kway always has a silky smooth texture, while the ingredients like the pig’s innards taste fresh without any ‘porky’ smell (if you know what i mean). Another good thing is they also sell duck meat too. We'd usually add some duck meat to complete our meal.

This stall is probably the most famous roast meats stall in the Bugis area and taste wise it certainly did not disappoint. Generous portions of tantalising roast meats drenched in a sweet dark sauce, so yummy and value for money!

The wanton mee from this stall has been on my makan list for the longest time and i finally checked it off yesterday. Overall, it was a very good plate of wanton mee; noodles were the rubbery kind with a very springy texture, char siew slices were lean and tasty but the wantons were the one that impressed me the most as each of them were so plump with generous amount of filling.

Was recommended to try the fried hokkien prawn mee here by a few foodie friends, and it sure did not disappoint. I love my hokkien mee wet, and this stall serves them slurpy wet with a good flavourful stock. Special mention to the belachan chilli too; solidly pungent and packs a punch. Mix everything up and you get a winning combination!

You Kee is a famous roast meat chain from Johor Bahru that has opened their first outlet in Singapore, and located at Joo Chiat. Their signature item is undoubtedly the crystal bbq pork belly char siew; with all that melt in the mouth goodness leaving you wanting more. The roast pork was not bad too; with the crispy crackling skin and tender meat, but star of the show was definitely the char siew. I’ve heard very good reviews of their boiled soup too, and i’ll be sure to try that when i’m back next time.

We ‘accidentally’ stumbled upon this chicken rice stall located at Mayflower Market & Food Centre when the wanton mee stall we wanted to try was closed for the day and we were surprised by how good the chicken rice tasted.

The rice was very fragrant and not clumpy while the chicken (we asked for chicken thigh) was smooth, tender and juicy. This was certainly an enjoyable meal and is definitely a hidden gem in the Ang Mo Kio area.

Stall Name: Mandarin Hainan Chicken Rice
Address: #01-11, Mayflower Market & Food Centre (162 Ang Mo Kio Ave 4)
