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).

Tried this rather famous stall in the middle row! The bee hoon was well flavoured and silky, though the bean sprouts were a little bitter. Especially liked the tau gua (crispy on the outside and perfectly smooth on the inside) and the prawn cracker (densely flavoured!!) ($10.60 including ngoh hiang, fish ball and youtiao).

Located at #01-15 whampoa makan place (the night hawker centre), I've been ordering for at least the last 25 years from this stall run by a father-mother-son team. Pure unadulterated sugar cane goodness at just $1.80 for this huge cup. You can also choose to add lemon.


This western stall at Whampoa Makan Place caught our attention as it looked really old-school. We ordered the mixed grill to have a taste test on the different types of meat, but sadly turned out to be a huge disappointment. There were beef, pork, hotdog, french fries, baked beans, coleslaw and a bun. All the meat on this plate were well done, in fact, over cooked and thus tough to chew as well as dry. The fries were soggy and the supposed mushroom sauce paired with the meats was too diluted. Pretty sure we can get better mixed grills hawker version at the same price elsewhere.


Although technically, it cannot really be considered as the healthiest thing. Especially not when the dishes picked include braised sesame oil chicken, “giam chye buay” (stewed preserved mustard greens) and “chai por nng” (fried egg with preserved radish).
I guess it is the simplicity of the hot, plain porridge (sometimes with sweet potato making a cameo) that has always given me the impression I am eating clean and light, and therefore, healthy.
Oh, the lies we tell ourselves 😂😂

While there are reviews on Hokkien Mee, Rojak, Fried Carrot Cake, Nasi Lemak etc easily found when you are searching for recommendations at Whampoa Makan Place, I am actually still drooling over this traditional waffles that I chanced upon there.

The bright green pandan flavouring and coconut milk brought back so much childhood memories and it’s still something I would prefer to the common brown ones nowadays. As oppose to the soft fluffy ones, I like the thickness and crispiness here that probably explains why it’s slightly pricier even for the plain one. It also has good brown slightly charred portions. Flavours include butter, Kaya, chocolate, peanut butter. I wished they had blueberry though. But still, it’s equally delicious as I got the Nutella sauce smeared all over my mouth. 😂 The stall owner was friendly and told me to take a seat while the waffles needed 5 minutes to be prepared. Other popular items from the stall include egg tart.
