There's a lot to choose from the bustling Whampoa Makan Place Block 90, but head straight for what our Tastemakers recommend — Hokkien mee. The stall, Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee, dishes out generous gravy- and wok-hei-ladened portions of the dish (from $4), and is easily recognisable by its signature orange oval melamine plate. Don't be fooled by the lack of a queue. According to Tastemaker Ni Eats, who frequents the stall regularly, you should be prepared to wait at least 20 minutes during peak hour, as there are plenty of takeaway orders. The Burpple community warns of the tiny amount of seafood, but is greatly satisfied with the three chillies provided on the side — chopped chilli padi, green chilli and a fiery sambal that has been consistently spicy for the last 20 years, according to Ni Eats.
Avg Price: $5 per person
