The roast meats here are far from being the best in Singapore, so the almost-cult status enjoyed by this stall is a bit mysterious. However, the food is good - in fact better than that at restaurants charging several times the price here. Fantastic value !

Following a renovation a few years back, this is easily the cleanest hawker centre in Singapore. Not as large as some others (like Maxwell, Chinatown Complex), but still includes some countrywide famous stalls, for shui kueh, Hainan chicken rice, roast meats, pig organ soup, hokkien mee, kway teow, etc.

Tekka (aka Zhujiao or KK market) is a Singapore institution. It is a wet market where you can buy meat, vegs and fresh fruit at a fraction of prices at Huber’s Butcher or Cold Storage. In fact, there are wives of billionaires who still shop here. It is also a huge and diverse hawker centre, with the highest number of South Asian stalls in Singapore - North Indian, South Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and probably SriLankan too if you look hard. You will also find many Chinese (chicken rice, bak chor mee, etc) and Malay stalls. In the old days, there was a slaughterhouse here (hence the name of the Buffalo Road). Maybe Tekka should have a stall selling buffalo Bistecca?

Fragrant and good bak kut teh. Other dishes are simple but pretty good too, like sesame chicken, tofu, ngo hiang. Unless you live in the neighbourhood or in eastern Singapore, it’s not worth busing or driving all the way out here. There are plenty of equally good or even better BKT joints all over Singapore.

Nice view from Level 25, but the atmosphere would not be one typically associated with an auntie’s dining room. Limited menu of local dishes. OK, but really nothing to write home about. So, it’s a place that is overpriced without being expensive. Even for tourists, there are better places to taste local food in a nice environment.

Michelin guides are dead wrong about Asian food (even in Europe - their ratings in Singapore are pathetic!). So, it’s a surprise they found this stall and gave it a Bib a Gourmand. For us, this is one of the best Claypot Rice eateries in town, especially if you like the rice a bit charred. The chicken, salted fish and lap chong are already plentiful, but you can add more protein, for instance the scrumptious liver lap chong. Several soup choices to lower the heat of the main dish. Make sure you call 30-60 minutes in advance, for the wait can be testing.

I prefer the rice at New Lucky Claypot Rice at Holland Drive (fragrant and intensely flavourful), but the one here is also delish. Aircon is a major plus. More food choices too. The tofu skin roll and the chilli lala are pretty good. Portions are generous, and prices are reasonable.

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
