Famously owned by a deaf couple, this store serves up carrot cake with dangerous levels of wok hei. The outer layer of the dish is mouthwateringly charred while the inside is still soft.

🌠Tip: it might look like there's no queue here because they go by a counter system. So order this FIRST before queueing for the other stalls!🌠

I'm not a fan of intestines but the slivers of melt-in-your-mouth pork and tofu were good stuff. I don't know what they did to the kuay chap sauce they were marinating in, but it's something that brings this store's offerings to another level.

A must try here because it's queues are not AS LONG as the rest of the stores here.

This famous char kuay teow boasts a picture of PM Lee visiting it. When I visited, the queue snaked all the way out of the hawker centre to the main road. The cooks weren't perturbed by the long queue though and really took their own sweet time for each dish. Not sure if it's a good or bad thing!

I waited 45 minutes for this and wasn't that impressed in the end. There wasn't some amazing level of wok hei nor flavour and the worst thing is that they severely undersalted the dish. Oh well there are other stalls much more worth queueing for in this hawker centre!

Silky soya + syrup which has the right amount of sweetness (less sweeter than PH’s taho). Perfect to warm up our tummies before having the rest of our lunch πŸ˜‹

Heard about this Char Kway Teow from Zion Riverside Food Centre and decided to give it a try. I got the biggest portion at $8, which is definitely enough to feed 2. They are known for the wet version of the dish and true enough, the noodles were drenched in the sweet soy sauce. However, I do find that this version is too sweet for me! The cockles were very fresh and huge as well. It is a good plate of Char Kway Teow, but perhaps not worth a long journey just for it.

We got the Oyster Omelette ($6) at the Riverside Good Food stall and it was pretty tasty! The omelette sides were crispy and there were doughy bits within. The oyster pieces were so huge and plump! 😍😍

We also got satay and chicken wings from Chong Pang Huat BBQ Chicken and they were so good 😍 you can really taste the char and the chicken wings we're still juicy within. A great addition!

Of course, the char kway teow is a must-try if you are paying a visit to Zion Riverside Food Centre! It is probably the only stall with a snaking long queue at the hawker centre and the queue may get even longer during mealtimes on weekends! 😰 The char kway teow comes with the standard kway teow, Mee, beansprouts, eggs, Chinese sausage and cockles! This is the $6 serving so it will probably be a little too heavy for one person and it might be better to share a dish of this size between two pax instead!

This char kway teow dish is a little on the sweeter side and they probably added more of the sweeter dark soy sauce. It is natural to compare the dish with our favourite stall at Hong Lim Food Complex and we think the stall at Hong Lim serves char kway teow with more wok hey. Hence, you may not like the Zion Road version as much if wok hey is a very important factor for you!

Nonetheless, the dish is still above average and we would advise you to give it a shot if you have yet to try it once in your life. We visited the hawker centre on a rainy day and queues were generally shorter, probably because there are no sheltered walkways and no MRT stations in the area yet!
