This is my favourite stall in Bukit Timah Food Centre. There is always a queue, but it is definitely worth the wait. Love the fried shrimp crackers and that spicy peanut sauce!

They have some pretty good prawn rolls and prawn wrapped in beancurd skin. And of cos the crispy fried prawn cracker. Chili was good too.

Break the shrimp cracker and dip the light crisps in the old school, gooey pink sauce of sugary sweet. Crisp cuttlefish, browned and stuffed, effuses a sinfully addictive fried fragrance. The orange cake rendition tasting lighter, is a soft, bouncy contrast. Dip a piece in zesty chilli, topped with the crunch of chopped onions and toasted ground peanuts to richen with spicy-sweetness. Pick up a slice of fish patty. Fried batter coats small fish chunks with mushy flour, delectably seasoned. Biting into a piece of ngoh hiang (meat roll), the crisp tofu skin flakes apart as you sink into densely packed juicy spiced and seasoned pork, subtly sweet. Soft fried tofu comes as a pleasantly light-flavoured contrast.
.
Consider the savoury compliment of fried beehoon (Small $1; Large $1.50) tossed with beansprouts for a heavier meal.

The fresh Teochew selection from Zhong Zhong Fried Spice #02-149 ($0.70-$2/piece) is refried upon order but surprisingly, doesn't leave you greasy. Not the healthiest but an understandable choice for the many having this early breakfast. Weekends demand you to ignite those tastebuds.

Zhong Zhong Fine Spice is a self-service stall that serves ngoh hiang (wu xiang). You'll find the usual ingredients like you tiao (dough fritters), pink sausages, and ngoh hiang (from $0.80), alongside more unique offerings like a Whole Stuffed Squid ($10). Tastemaker Vanessa Kou loves the less commonly seen battered fish, as well as the chilli sauce that comes with a splash of crunchy ground toasted peanuts. She also recommends getting a side of Bee Hoon (from $1) that is "expertly fried and nicely seasoned". All the ingredients are refried to order, and according to Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang, are "done well without being greasy", making this stall her favourite haunt (and her father's too!).

One of the most popular stalls in the food centre, it's not an uncommon sight to see people ordering and taking away packets and packets of bee hoon with a whole big bag of chosen ingredients. This stall is probably one of my dad's favorite (and then mine), often found on our dining table even more so as we live close by! Some of my fav picks are the orange squid, prawn cracker and fish patty. The nicely seasoned offerings are all refried upon order and that's done well without being greasy!

Just add on plates of their fried bee hoon ($1/small, $1.50/large) and you are all set to go. This may not be the cheapest nor the healthier option around but has always been consistently good and satisfying. #BurppleBTFC

It has been quite some time since I had Ngoh Hiang and even longer since I had a good, decent plate. Hence, offering a good variety of ngoh hiang ingredients, Zhong Zhong Fine Spice was exactly that - well-executed and not overtly oily or jelat. Having the usual and classic go-tos like you tiao (dough fritters), fried ngoh hiang (meat roll), sausage, fishball, tau kwa (beancurd), and crispy prawn fritter; my favourite was actually the battered fish which I thought was quite uncommon. And of course, dipping into their chilli sauce which made everything better, especially with a splash of crunchy ground toasted peanuts. The side of beehoon ($1/ $1.50) was also expertly fried and nicely seasoned.

[Do expect a long but fast moving queue during lunch. For prices, they start from $0.70 (fishballs) to $10 (fried sotong).]
