All I want for Christmas is FOOOOD~ How is everyone’s Xmas preparation going? Doing your last minute shopping for gifts or cooking up an awesome feast? Last week we asked you guys which Singapore hawker noodles you guys love. We had an overwhelming response but there can only be 10 winners! Let us take a look together!
Location: Hosay Mee Pok @ 204 Bedok North
Visited their newest outlet at ABC, on a weekend dinner time. There are two staff manning the stall, I ordered their Mee Pok Special, Kway Tiao and Teochew porridge. The chill for the Bak Chor mee is spicy and the soup have lots of cabbage. The porridge is very filling for 1 person and there is clams, scallops, liver and minced meat inside. Will visit again if I am nearby their outlets .
Location: Marina South Delicious Food
For those who frequent Maxwell Hawker, this store should probably be familiar to you. They serve Hokkien Mee as well, but I decided to try their Char Kway Tiao because I LOVE CHAR KWAY TIAO. It’s a pretty decent dish and I like that they included sausages in their Char Kway Tiao, because there’s a lot of places which do not include and I’d be a little disappointed because it’s extra flavour. I like that there’s also a kick in the chilli they use, but may not be for those who are unable to take spice. For the price, I think it’s really quite worth, and I’m still on the hunt for good Char Kway Tiao😊! Overall Rating: 7/10
Location: Kok Kee Wanton Noodles
Kok Kee’s springy noodle are the best! I have to admit it is the nicest noodle I ever tasted for a Wanton Mee. Homemade sauce makes the noodle very fragrant and tasty. Priced reasonably at $3.50/$4.50. Though they increased their price since about a year or two ago. It is always my go to Wanton Mee on Sunday morning. Expect a long queue but the lady has a very good memory and the chef is very quick in making noodle. However the char siew is so-so only. Highlight is the noodle! Please try if not you will regret!
Location: ENG’s Wantan Noodle
ENG’s Wantan Noodles are famous for their springy noodles and extremely spicy chilli sauce. They even have a warning sign placed on the chilli bottle! For myself, I choose to play safe and add bit by bit so that it doesn’t burn my tongue. Besides the noodles, we ordered Ngor Hiang, Fried Wanton and the Soup Wanton as well. It makes for a filling and yummy meal for just $10 per pax. I would totally recommend this place whenever you crave noodles
Location: Malaysian Food Street
Bet you didn’t think a touristy gimmick in the middle of Sentosa could serve up some awesome Char Kway Teow! Not your typical black style that one is used to, but still tasty nonetheless! Q-Q noodles, a mishmash between Phad Thai and Char Kway Teow. Bonus points for the lovely ambience here making you feel like you are really in Malaysia. Plus walk around Resorts World Sentosa afterwards to burn off those calories!
Location: Cheng Heng Kway Chap and Braised Duck Rice
It’s been forever since I’ve last had a taste of the Kway chap I grew up with, and I am overjoyed to say that it is as delicious today as it was 10 years ago. Sure, it’s not gonna win any awards for being the most Instagramable food, but who cares about that nonsense anyways. The preserved vegetable is light and refreshing. Everything from the lor bak to the duck neck was pure flavour paradise, and it was all undeniably umami. Braised to tender perfection, the big and small intestines are the true stars of this show. Normally at other stalls, the intestines tend to be rather filthy with the fat that never got cleaned out. But at Cheng Heng, they painstakingly clean out the intestines till no trace of that disgusting fat remain, and only porky, sapid sensations are there to titillate your taste-buds. It’s big on glutton satisfaction, but easy on the wallet.
Location: Greendot (Westgate)
Vegetarian Laksa! Well it’s adequate but there’s still significant difference to the Laksa I’m used to, but praises for many more eateries serving vegetarians and vegans now. I had vegetarian for about 12 days and it wasn’t difficult to find food, pretty enjoyable as well!
Known for their famous extra spicy chili, this Wanton Mee is definitely one of a kind. I always order the $4 Wanton Mee because of their chili. It’s unique because its not the normal sambal kind of chili but more of like balachan. The best part, the owner is not stingy with the chili. If you order multiple bowls with your friends, you guys get to share 1 small bowl of chilli! Wow! It gives a kick to the Wanton Mee for sure.
Location: Cai Ji Wanton Mee
A plate of Wanton Mee never fails to hit the spot, especially with this cold and rainy weather. Luckily for me, Cai Ji Wanton Mee in Bishan is just a stone’s throw away from where I stay, so I can always help myself to a simple and comforting bowl of their Char Siew Wanton Mee (S$3/S$4) 🍜. The char siew 🍖 isn’t anything to rave about, I’ll be honest. However, the egg noodles 🥚 and ketchup 🥫 form a combination that’s absolutely to be reckon with. This Malaysian-style Wanton Mee is simply Bishan’s best-kept secret 😉.
Location: Seng Kee Local Delights
Are you team Char Kway Teow or team Hokkien Mee? I like both of them! Heard there is a good one at Lau Pa Sat, so we went to try out. Personally I find that both tastes great but if the taste can be stronger it will be great.
