When a dish is seen on almost every table in a hawker centre, you know you have to try it for yourself. Hock Le Xiang offers light bites like popiah ($1.50) and rojak, but what Burpple Tastemaker Kenneth Lee recommends is the freshly made Rojak (from $3), which is as good as he remembers it to be from his childhood. Expect crisp you tiao, cucumbers and turnips generously tossed together in a dark glossy prawn paste, along with a shower of ground peanuts on the top. It's a great midday snack or a dish to share when eating in a group!
Avg Price: $5 per person
