Local Must Try Hawker Delights

Local Must Try Hawker Delights

One thing I am proud to be a singaporean is our hawker heritage. Quality good food for such affordable prices! Who says cheap and good doesn't exist?

I don't like fishball noodles and I was never a fan of them. This stall handmade their ingredients from scratch and you can literally taste the difference between theirs and the commercially made ones. The meatballs and fishballs are soft and chewy. Their chilli with the Mee Kia was sweet, spicy with hints of fried shallots. It was a wholesome dish and I would like to come back for the Mee tai mak another time.

A new concept by Putien, Yum Sing is a bar at clarke quay that specialises in local delights and cocktails. Newly opened this month, the interior decor will take you back to Singapore in the 60s. Pictured in the beef moonlight hor fun which costs only $10! They also sell interesting locally inspired cocktails such as kaya toast and our famed singapore sling.

Sliced fish with cabbage and lala fried with bee hoon full of wok hei smokiness and seafood broth. He Le is one of the must try stalls at bukit timah hawker centre.

Poh's is one of the few stalls selling this rare teochew dish these days. Made of eggs, prawns and preserved radish and kway teow that are fried with high temperature and heat, compressed into omelette-like flatness. Crispy on the exterior, the insides are the delicious wok hei flavoured kway teow. This was quite oily when served, but I can't complain too much about an awesome hawker dish that is so rare these days.

Heard of this shop and the buzzing long queue that it attracts for a long time. Finally we decided to go down to Jackson square, hoping that the hype has already died down. There was no queue when we went on a saturday morning. The char siew was superb, the chilli mixed with the finely cut noodles was amazing. My only regret was that I should have ordered the normal wanton noodles so that I can have more chunks of the delicious fatty char siew.

Queued almost 1.5 hours for this. The grilled angus beef patties were juicy goodness and the buns are so soft. Hawker priced which makes them value for money for the quality you are getting. But really not worth waiting so long!

There are number of chicken rice shops around the Bras Brasah Area and Chin Chin Eating House is the one that really caught my eye due to the crazy lunch crowds that they attracted. Other than the standard chicken rice dishes such as roasted chicken and wenchang chicken, they also have a selection of tze char dishes. Very solid ingredients although taste-wise there are better eateries I could think of.

This bowl used to cost $5.90 at ayer rajah hawker centre now costs $10.90 at fusionopolis one north. The chicken karage rice bowl comprises of a chicken karage fillet with mayo and onsen egg. Veggie sides are different from before, with shredded cucumbers and carrots. Doubt I will ever revisit this place due to the +$5 difference.

Had my bowl of special tonkotsu ramen for only $6.90! There are 4 large slices of pork, black fungus, 1 ajitsuke tamago and two pieces of nori. A substantial variety of ingredients and very generous quantities for the affordable pricing. The black king ramen was pricier at $9 consists of special fried garlic paste, tonkotsu broth and bonito flakes. More flavoursome and stronger broth.

Nestled within a hip and modern hawker centre on pasir ris, burgernomics is muslim-owned and sells very affordable burgers that taste superbly good. We tried the buttermilk chicken burger, deluxe burger and chilli beef fries. The buns on the burgers are so soft. Read on blogs that they sourced them from an artisanal bakery in joo chiat, so these buns are really fresh from the ovens. Ingredients and sauces used are generous and premium in quality. Our favourite one is the deluxe burger made from our favourite ingredients :beef, sauteed mushrooms, onions, double american cheddar cheese and truffle oil.

Concentrated Prawn stock and lard, fried together with big prawns, lean pork and more pork lard. Extremely unhealthy but belly satisfying food. You will get a bowl of prawn soup together with the bee hoon, which was full of sweet with prawn and umami flavours.

Managed to avoid the crowds on a weekday for this. The fried sotong is a definite must-try other than their signature curry fish head: Fried to perfection and so everlastingly crispy. Their ingredients are freshly prepared and that makes their chap chye png appealing compared to a typical chap chye png stall.
