Yong Hua's fried dough stick is suitable for vegetarians (no pork no lard), freshly rolled, light & crispy. The perfect addition to your Kopi-O or soya bean drink.

Taste: 4.7/5
Verdict: must try or you'll regret it
Tip: make sure you get there before 1pm

This Singaporean breakfast & lunch staple at Noi's has more ingredients than noodles (most of the time) and has been my favourite for more than 20 years. For me, Noi's Bak Chor Mee has the right balance of vinegar, noodles, ingredients that I like, and tasty soup.

Price: $ ($4, $5, $6)
Taste: 4.6/5
Verdict: must try
Availability: Tue-Sun: 7am to 1pm | closed on Mon
Tip: go early cos they often sell out before 1pm

An all-time favourite of mine, I once had their Yong Tau Foo thrice in a week. Every piece is handmade and extra bee hoon is on the house.

Price: $ ($4.50 / $5.50)
Taste: 4.8/5
Verdict: must try or you'll regret it
Availability: Mon-Sat: 9am to 9pm | closed Sun (open on Public Holidays)
