Opted to try the mala here cause it always has patrons!! Unfortunately we were quite put off by the price - it cost close to $20 for two people (who normally average $15 for mala) even when we had made sure to order mostly vegetables. It was a good mix of spiciness & numbness but I wouldn’t patronise again!

My go-to store for grilled chicken wings!! I always make a beeline for these, even before finding a seat or deciding what else to order. Each piece comes with a wing and a drum ($1.40 each), charred to crisp and yet still moist inside. Love the smoky savoury flavours and the tangy heat of the chilli!

Bought a small plate to share! Their red sauce packs a real punch. Loved how the ngoh hiang was generously packed with meat, and the light crispness of the crackers ($5 total)!

Took me surprisingly long to try this stall! It recently relocated from another part of the hawker centre. Loved how fragrant the water cress soup ($3.50) was - it came with many pieces of pork ribs, and plenty of wolf berries! The soup was flavourful and not overtly salty. The steamed pork patty with mushroom ($3.80) was also a really good buy and great for sharing!

Picked this Thai stall as it seemed to have a shorter waiting time! The basil chicken rice ($5) was relatively standard - the sauce tasty, and of sufficient spiciness. Enjoyed the addition of beans!

Tried their yong tau foo previously and had written the stall off. But this spinach soup ($3.50 + $0.50 for rice) impressed me so much!! First of all, the portion is huuuge. And secondly, the soup was so fragrant! It was filled with the requisite spinach, mushrooms and wolf berries. The prawns were sweet and succulent. Was also surprised to find chunks of minced meat inside, all seasoned well! This might become my go-to meal at the hawker centre πŸ₯³

Definitely spoilt for choice here! Chose something out of my norm with their Honey Oolong Tea ($2.50) - the first sip was really sweet, but the bitter depth of oolong comes through after.

When did the queue here get so long?! This is a store that has withstood the test of time. It seems a little less popular than the neighbouring Original Avocado, but I like that this one ($3 / $4) is thick and creamy. It has less gula melaka, allowing the avocado to shine through!

Here’s the mixed hor fun ($4.50)! The wok hei flavour is distinct, and the noodles chewy. The gravy is thick and flavourful yum. The store is generous with ingredients - this had pork, fish, squid and prawns. One of my favourites!!

Always face decision paralysis at Ghim Moh because there is so much to choose from, but this is a family favourite :-) firmer than most other places, the chwee kueh ($0.50/pc, min $2) gives a good bite! Aunty is not very generous with with her cai poh but what she lacks in quantity, she more than makes up for with quality. The pickled vegetables pack a punch, and is complemented by the chilli.

One of my favourites!! The menu underwent a revamp recently, and is now very extensive. My favourite chicken panini is now served as a set meal ($5) with fries and spiced soup. Highlight of this store is definitely the juicy grilled meat chock full of flavour!!

This is from the less famous stall (further down the middle row, not next to the ngoh hiang stall), but I prefer this one! The egg is super crispy and the starch is not too dense. The oysters were also pretty fresh, albeit pricey ($8 for.. 8 pieces of oyster).
