There are generic roasts and there are the cream of the crops, and Roast Paradise falls at the top of the food chain. I cannot rave enough on how good their char siew is; strong roast aroma, sticky sweet caramelised meat and the perfect meat to fat ratio. Their roast pork is the benchmark that what all roast pork stalls should envision to be, any lower standard and we should not waste our calories on it. Paired with Roast Paradise’s garlic rice and tangy chilli, it’s really a perfect combination that one could ask for.

This stall serves the dry version of hokkien mee, with a good serving of thin white bee hoon and yellow noodles, and topped with two prawns. This dish comes with really little gravy, most of which was absorbed by the noodles, although this makes the dish pretty suitable for takeaways. The highlight of the dish is really the fiery chilli, which is really spicy and awesome when eaten with the noodles. Do try it before mixing it into your noodles because it may be too spicy for some.

This stall has quite a few outlets, so it isn't a must-try if you are at Old Airport Road. However, if you are craving for spicy hokkien mee, do go for it!

Oysters with fried egg and cornstarch! In particular, the cornstarch was fried well, being crispy on the outside, but fluffy on the inside! This stall also serves some of the biggest oysters (in orh luak) I have seen, and they were really fresh! Mix everything with the stall's chilli paste and you are good to go!

However, I must say that I thought the serving was pretty small for the $6 serving, and a large part of the price must really be for the oysters. This is not a bad thing, though, if you are planning to order many dishes to try at the hawker centre!

Despite being one of the more famous stalls at Old Airport Road, there wasn't much of a queue and I only had to wait around 10 minutes for my order to be ready.

There are a few renowned kway chap stalls locally and one of them happens to be in a popular hawker centre in Singapore. They go by either To-Ricos or Blanco Court Kway Chap to many, and you have to queue in line especially during peak hours. The kway chap here is not the medicinal or herbal kind as the braise is sightly on the lighter side. What gives them the edge over others is how thoroughly cleaned the innards are and they come without the funky smell, and in a generous portion as well, considering that the 1 pax set costs $5 and my plate has an addition add-on of $0.80 for the pig skin. The winning factor for me has got to that chilli dipping sauce as it is tangy with the perfect spicy kick. However, in terms of overall, still not my favourite kway chap.

Intricate hand made puffs, but filling was a little watery and curry too mild

It is great to see so many people came here to support the hawker, even though we still can’t dine in for now.

Lot of people here on Saturday lunch time for takeaway. And among so many stalls here, there’s this Thai food stall called the Cool Cool Thai; that got my attention for their crispy fried pork belly rice.

Topped with lots of fried garlic and fried egg on their super juicy fried pork belly. It could get pretty dry, so I would recommend you to get some soup as well. $5

A Blasta best seller. Masses of stone fruit and tropical aromas - particularly passionfruit that is supported by potent grapefruit and candied orange flavours, balanced by some sweet caramel malts before wrapping up with a reasonably biting bitterness 》$13 / Pint

There are several famous stalls selling Braised Noodles in Old Airport Food Center. Prices start from $3 (no fish meat) to $5 (additional ingredients). Ordered the $5 version and I have to say the serving is huge. Lots of braised pork belly, ngoh hiang, large chunks of mackerel fish meat and a whole braised egg cut into two. Above average as the “Lor” was not as flavourful as others. The fish meat did compensate somewhat as they were huge pieces cut and scrapped off a large piece of fried mackerel.

But the queue and waiting time was a bummer. 35 mins in a moderate queue. And mine was the last bowl with braised pork belly at 12.30pm.

Saw a few recommendations of this stall in Old Airport Food Center. Stall owner fries each order one by one. For 4 dollars you get a small plate of Kway Teow with lots of fish cakes, Chinese sausages and two large prawns. The Kway Teow is drier than normal, for wok heat, the prawns are very fresh. But overall nothing to shout about. For those who like their CKT less sweet, more savoury and drier.

💸 Lor Mee: $5
Woke up super early to try this highly raved lor mee at old airport road hawker centre which always has long, snaking queues.😵 To us, having deep fried items like ngoh hiang or yam roll in lor mee are a must so this bowl of lor mee which includes mainly flakes fish and braised meat was something really different.😬 The flaked fish added a really nice savoury touch, and the gravy really blew us away. Flavourful but not too starchy and just the right consistency, which made the gravy super palatable.🤤 Also, definitely get the bigger bowl of lor mee as it's more worth it with the humongous pile of flaked fish on the noodles!🐟 Overall, a good bowl of lor mee and especially if you haven't had this variation with the flaked fish, definitely worth a try!👍

You will definitely go holy when you see the size of the meat given. Definitely a huge portion that you would enjoy much for only $7.

It also comes with 2 side dishes that you can choose.
