Craving for Thai food? Can’t decide between having Mookata or a-la-carte mains? At Charcoal Thai, they serve both steamboats and authentic Thai dishes, both at a really affordable price. What we really loved at Charcoal Thai was their Tom Yum soup, it was a perfect blend of spicy and sour, leaving you thirsty for more! For Mookata lovers, their buffet menu offers a wide range of meat, seafood and drinks at a really decent price. Hurry down now to satisfy your Thai food cravings!
Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee
Originating from Kuala Lumpur, Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee made its way to sunny Singapore over a year ago and has since taken Singapore by storm. Best known for its “Pan Mee Chilli” and poached eggs, the Signature Dry Chilli Pan Mee definitely packs a punch when mixed with both the chilli paste and the egg. The chilli, while not being too spicy, brings out the flavour of the Pan Mee after mixing the minced meat, anchovies, poached egg, deep fried shallots and meatballs all together.
Kim's Fried Hokkien Mee
Having been in the business since the 1960s, Kim’s Fried Hokkien Mee is arguably one of the best, if not the best, in Singapore. Portion served is huge, with loads of seafood and crispy lard. Those who love thick bee hoon, wet-styled Hokkien Mee would definitely enjoy this dish. Noodles were really fragrant and tasty and were well complemented by the belachan chilli.
Jin Hua Sliced Fish Bee Hoon
Jin Hua Fish Head Bee Hoon specialises in serving Cantonese style fish soup. Milk is added into the soup and then topped off with sesame oil, to further enhance the broth hence giving it its flavourful taste. Be prepared to wait during peak hours, however we, FoodHunters assure you that this bowl of goodness is definitely worth the wait!
Pro tip: Leave the chunks of fried fish for the last; it tastes really yummy when it absorbs all the thick soup.
Jew Kit Hainanese Chicken Rice
When asked for the best chicken rice in Singapore, Jew Kit Hainanese Chicken Rice wouldn’t come to mind. However, after paying them a visit, we believe they deserve a spot on the list.
Portion was large, and the chicken was succulent. The chicken was completely tender and cooked perfectly, with a hint of sweetness on the skin and within the meat. The rice was very tasty and not too oily while the broth was full of flavour. All in all, it was a perfect meal.
Located at ABC Brickworks Food Centre, Fatty Cheong can be easily identified by the long line of customers who are eagerly waiting to order. The place is well-known for its Char Siew and Roast Pork. The Char Siew is very juicy and tender and full of flavor while the Roast Pork, having a very ‘crispy’ layer of skin, crackles when you chew on it.
Now, with a newly opened outlet located at Toa Payoh, Char Siew and Roasted Pork lovers will be able to enjoy the benefit of a second outlet to enjoy thi
Have a sweet tooth? Fret not! The first ever offshore outlet of Japan’s Delicius Pasticceria has found its way from Osaka to Singapore.
Try their signature Pomme Fromage which uses Brie de Meaux from France. Further complemented by the addition of apricot jam, Delicius’s version is lighter in texture and not too rich, leaving us craving for more. And not to mention, the presentation of their cakes are picture-perfect, totally instagram worthy!
When trying out food at famous food centres, Chicken Chop is definitely not top of the list for many. However, when it comes to eating at Old Airport Road Food Centre, Western Barbeque is a must-try. We were blown away by the generous portion served, that was bigger than any other chicken chop we have ever had. Our option was the chicken chop without gravy. Despite the absence of gravy, the chicken tasted moist, juicy and full of flavour.
Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh
In Singapore, Bak Kut Teh is served in two styles – Teochew style and Klang Style. While the Teochew style features clear soup and a peppery taste, the Klang style adopts a herbal taste with a thick and cloudy soup. Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh is one of the very few stalls in Singapore to serve Klang style Bak Kut Teh.
If you’re a Bak Kut Teh fan and want to try something less peppery, drop by Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh and you wouldn’t be disappointed!
Meat n' Chill
At Meat N Chill, they pride themselves in serving the MEANEST ribs in town. Having tried the Signature BBQ Pork Ribs, we couldn’t argue with that. The pork ribs were tender, well marinated and savoury at every bite. The meat was satisfyingly juicy and flavoured. Oh, don’t get us started on the Siracha dip with the spam fries, it was simply heavenly!
Walking along the corner of the hawker centre, you just can’t simply miss Kovan Rojak! It has a decent line of people queuing and if you are alert enough, you will notice that almost every single customer in the hawker centre has a plate of rojak on their table! The ingredients - tau pok and you tiao are tasty, fresh and has a satisfying crunch to it. But what we loved most about the rojak was the generous portion of sauce. It is thick and has the right amount of sweetness and sourness to it.
Tucked within a small coffeshop in Dover, Wah Chee is a hidden gem waiting to be found. Despite operating in such a small establishment, Wah Chee is well-known among residents within the area for their Salted Egg Squid and Butter Chicken.
Our team tried both dishes and was immediately blown with our first bite. The salted egg came in liquid form, allowing each piece of squid to be drenched in the creamy golden sauce. The squid was done perfect - neither too rubbery but still soft.
The Udder Pancake
Greeted by playful designs that adorn the walls of the ambient store, we were in a for a treat as we browsed the list of new items that The Udder Pancake recently introduced, expanding from their already successful ice cream business. We decided to try the salted egg fries as it’s description in the menu was very unique and engaging. Nonetheless, we were greeted with a plate of crispy thick cut fries topped with decadent salted egg yolk sauce, crispy curry leaves, chilli flakes & toasted butter
War has been waging over at Alexandra Food Village for years now. With over five stalls serving avocado juice as their signature drink, it’s hard to argue who’s the best. Having patronised a couple of stalls, we’ve all agreed on one stall - King Avocado.
Unlike some of the others, King Avocado’s version is less diluted, but instead thicker and creamier, with a very distinct taste of avocado. The texture is perfect, and the drink is further enhanced with a hint of gula melaka.
Calling all salted egg yolk lovers, the Salted Egg Calamari at Old House is to die for! Naturally, the texture of a squid would not go well with the creamy sauce. Instead of clinging on, it will glide off the squid’s surface. However, at Old House, the dish is done right. With perfect timing and heat, the batter remains crispy even long after the sauce has been infused into it. The result? A pleasingly sweet, buttery and savoury dish with a perfect balance between creamy and gritty.
The Daily Scoop
Besides being really generous with their servings, the Daily Scoop offers a wide range of interesting home-made ice cream flavours. Some of the popular flavours include Salted Mr Brown (sweet-salty chocolate concoction), Mao Shan Wang (durian), Kookie Monster, Lychee Martini and more! We tasted a couple of flavours but the ones that stuck out to us the most were the lychee martini and stout ice cream. The ice cream texture was a perfect mix of ice cream and smoothie - soft and velvety in texture
