You need to try the char kway teow if you are paying a visit to Zion Riverside Food Centre! It is probably one of the stalls with a snaking long queue at the hawker centre and it is definitely testament to the stall's popularity. The dish comes with the standard kway teow and mee, as well as 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 this dish between two pax instead. There is a smaller $5 serving, which may not be as worth it in our opinion, because it is noticeably smaller.

Most people compare this dish with that from our favourite stall at Hong Lim Food Complex and we think the stall at Hong Lim serves char kway teow that is slightly more charred. By contrast, the version at Zion Road is slightly sweeter (likely from more dark soy sauce), so it really depends on what you like to eat!

Nonetheless, the dish is still a great dish and we would advise you to give it a shot if you have yet to try it once in your life. We would like to advise you not to visit Zion Riverside Food Centre on Mondays as well as almost 75% of the stalls are not open for business. You will probably have more food options if you visit during the weekends!
