The best food is cooked with heart, passion and integrity. It's time to bring back the glory days of Singapore's local hawkers. Preserve the heritage, carry on the legacy.

Comes in 3 level of spiciness, you can instantly feel the spice hitting your taste-buds from the very first bite and the brave souls can definitely opt for the highest level, which gives you the maximum (and potent) mala experience. Even though the heat can be unbearable at times, the tasty mala sauce is so addictive that you will want to dip the crab meat with it. For this dish, Sri Lankan crabs were chosen which proves to be the ideal choice as the natural sweetness of the meat balances well with the mala gravy. In addition, you will get bang for your buck as Sri Lankan crabs are known to be huge and meaty which you can thoroughly have a crabby feast.

I am going to giveaway a set of this signature Mala Crab and to participate, all you have to do is to
1. Follow Tian Wei Seafood @tianweiseafoodsg on IG
2. Like this post and
3. Comment below by tagging 3 of your friends

A winner will be selected on 22 November and collection/delivery will be advised thereafter.

One of the more established brands, Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice was founded in 1989 and I remember eating it at its original Novena outlet when I was much younger and the brand has since grown to a few outlets across the country. Served with rice that’s cooked in a chicken stock and an aromatic mix of ginger and garlic, the fragrant rice alone is enough to tingle your senses. The best partner for it is of course the steamed or roasted chicken that is tender to the bite but with a different flavour profile. Personally, I prefer the steamed chicken for its silky smooth texture of the skin and the soya sauce and sesame oil mix that is poured onto it.

For the current GrabFood Deal Matcher promotion that lasts till 24 November, there is a Buy One Get One Free deal where you can enjoy 2 x Half Chicken (Steamed or Roasted) from Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice for just $17.12 (U.P. $32.24) when you enter the promo code WEENAMKEE before checkout. For the rest of the promo codes of the other participating merchants, do check out @grabfoodsg Instagram Story highlights.

Packed with tandoori chicken, mozzarella cheese and portobello mushrooms, this invention by Springleaf Prata Place is no ordinary murtabak and something that you definitely cannot find elsewhere. Each section promises a different texture with the edges having a slightly crispier crust while the middle is denser with all the ingredients around it. Best to go with the chicken curry and once you have finished devouring this masterpiece, you can wash it down with a cup of teh tarik for the ultimate comfort meal.

Beneath this rojak of ingredients lies a bed of steamed rice cooked in the claypot which results in one of the most aromatic rice that you’ve ever eaten. Definitely not the most instagrammable dish that you will see but trust me, the flavours and taste triumphs over that. The chock full of ingredients that comes with it such as braised chicken chunks, Chinese sausages, salted fish and pork belly is more than enough to satisfy any cravings.

The handmade dumplings are as plump as ever with a meat mixture wrapped beneath the dumpling skin. Freshly wrapped and steamed, the dumplings are joined by a chilli oil concoction with additional chilli flakes joining the party for an explosion of flavours in your mouth. Trust me, join the queue for this and you will not regret.

Besides the long queues for the nasi lemak and lor mee, the pan-fried carrot cake shaped in a square form or the fast-selling carrot cake sticks, there is actually a stall that sells a damn solid plate of fried hokkien prawn noodles. Priced from $4 to $6, an elderly couple helms behind the wok and the hokkien noodles from this stall is the wetter version but still has that smoky wok hei aroma. What’s truly amazing about this plate is the generous bits of pork lard that is hidden within each spoonful that goes so well with the noodle and the x-factor is when you mix in the sambal belacan which transforms and elevates this dish to the next level.

An egg is cracked into it before serving and this is totally a comfort food that you get instant gratification from the first bite.

To make it even better, if the curry gravy is served with steamed chicken and noodles in it, it’s a winning formula.

Hock Hai (Hong Lim) Curry Chicken Noodle is located inside the Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre and surprisingly this stall was recently awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand. The perfect combination is to get it with bee hoon and yellow egg noodles as it is able to latch onto the curry gravy better while eating it with the tofu puff which would have already soaked up all the goodness.

Using a soup base that’s cooked for many hours, the broth is joined by seafood such as prawns, clams and fish that result in a natural sweetness to the overall flavour. Pictured is their signature Emperor Trio Seafood Thick Soup ($5.50), that at such an affordable price is almost a steal for the quality and quantity of ingredients that you’re getting.

It’s even better when it involves lots of curry, braised sauce and sambal. Famed for their namesake, they will literally use a pair of scissors to cut whatever ingredients you choose from the window of food. The rice is then drenched with three kinds of gravy; two types of thick viscous curry and a braised gravy. My usual picks that I get to go with my rice include the chicken cutlet, braised cabbage and ngor hiang which is a pork filling with water chestnuts that’s rolled into a beancurd skin and deep fried.

Overall, a decent plate of stir-fried rice noodles but it is somewhat lacking in wok-hei and the other essential pad thai ingredients such as tofu, dried shrimp and red chilli pepper. Will I order this again? Probably not.

The lure of the 100% basmati rice, turmeric marinated fried chicken wings and sambal chilli is just too inviting to give it a miss. The nasi lemak at Mizzy Corner never fails and being a legend in her own rights, it rightly deserves a place in the nasi lemak hall of fame. On this day, the Chicken Wings Set ($3.50) is joined by a fish otah ($1) that’s wrapped in banana leaf and grilled. As compared to previous experiences, today’s basmati rice is lacking the lemak-ness which might be due to the coconut milk while the sambal is slightly too sweet for my liking. Nonetheless, it is still a very solid plate of nasi lemak that I would return many times over.
