From the Burpple community and the helpful reviews they share on the app, here's everything you need to know about Singapore's hawker scene this month!

Chilli Pan Mee

Tried Super Kitchen Chilli Pan Mee in KL and loved it? You’ll be pleased to hear that they’ve opened an outlet in Singapore! Burppler Smitten Angel praised the chilli’s perfect ratio of saltiness to spiciness when she tried the signature Chilli Pan Mee ($7.80), while Burppler Kris Lim liked the chewy noodles, which are handmade on site. Another dish worth trying is the “very shiok” Pork Chop Pan Mee (Dry) Burppler Chelsea Foong really enjoyed, especially with the runny egg add-on and a scoop of their homemade chilli.

Waker Chicken x Oppa Grill

Waker Chicken fan? They’ve opened another outlet in Tampines, this time a dual concept with Oppa Grill that’s also Muslim-owned. The Waker Chicken (from $13 for half chicken, available in original or hot spicy) is highly recommended for sharing. Alternatively, opt for Waker Tenders (from $7 for five pieces) or Waker Hot Wings (from $7 for three pieces) so you can dip them into lip-smacking sauces like Traditional, Dak’s Spicy Salted Egg and Dak’s Lime Citrus Mayo (additional $0.40). They’ve recently added Army Stew ($25) to their menu too, so bring more tummies!

Next time you’re hankering for salmon rice bowl, make a pit stop at this hawker stall in Amoy Street Food Centre. For $10, you get a nicely sous vide slab of salmon topped with mentaiko atop a bed of butterfly pea flower-tinted rice — the “lagoon”. Every bowl also comes decked with cucumber discs, cherry tomato halves, corn and an oozy onsen egg dusted with furikake. Yum!

Penang Seafood Restaurant

Don’t panic if you don’t see Penang Seafood Restaurant at its usual spot — they’ve moved across the road to bigger, more comfy digs. The usual favourites are still available on the menu, so gather more makan buddies for a La La Hokkien Mee, Fermented Pork Belly and Salted Egg Sotong feast!

After moving from Roxy Square Food Court to Marine Parade Central in 2014, this ban mian stall recently moved again, this time to Old Airport Road Food Centre recently (thanks for the heads up, Burppler Tiffany Chok!). Next time you’re craving for a piping hot bowl of comfort in the east, you know where to go!
