Hong Ji Claypot Bak Kut Teh
Speaking of bak kut teh… perfect on rainy days which call for a steaming, nourishing bowl of bak kut teh. This popular stall, which started out in Marsiling, ladles up an aromatic broth brewed with more than 10 herbs for about six hours. The result? A wonderfully nuanced soup unlike the peppery versions you usually find in Singapore, with fall-off-the-bone tender pork ribs. For something with more bite, order their pig trotters in a dark soy sauce gravy, braised with intestines.
How much From $3.70
Takeaway & delivery hours 12noon – 2pm | 6pm – 8pm
Delivery fee $5-$15; minimum $20 order

Hong Sheng Restaurant
This Toa Payoh North mainstay has been serving zichar dishes for more than four decades. Their piece de resistance is silky hor fun (we highly recommend the beef version), perfectly infused with the charred aroma of wok hei, and generously topped with freshly deep-fried lard. It’s a dish that many journalists at nearby Singapore Press Holdings turn to when they work the late shift. You also can’t go wrong with their prawn rolls, claypot fish head and prawn paste chicken.

Tree Coconut Nasi Lemak
Owned and run by a biomedical science graduate and former insurance professional, this Berseh Food Centre stall gets all the elements of a fine nasi lemak right. The rice is fragrant and fluffy without being weighed down by the heaviness of coconut cream, the ikan bilis is freshly fried, while the crispy chicken is tender, moist and flavoured with five-spice powder. Homemade otak-otak and sambal give the dish a mildly spicy kick, while scoring plenty of flavour points. Plus, kids will love their chicken cutlet and fish fillet options. Definitely give these millennial hawkers, who clearly put lots of effort into their craft, a chance.
How much From $3.20

Tian Nan Xing Minced Pork Noodle
Like many bak chor mee stalls in the Bedok area, Tian Nan Xing is known for their soup version of the dish, which features a cloudy broth that’s flecked with minced pork. The 80-year-old stall is well-known among those living in the east, who swear by their pork balls and homemade dumplings. There’s no shame in slurping up this comforting dish with a side of Netflix.

A Noodle Story
A Bib Gourmand eatery featured in the 2019 Michelin Guide Singapore, this Amoy Street Food Centre favourite is usually fronted by long queues. Their beautifully rendered bowls of Singapore-style ramen belie the fact that this is hawker fare. Think of their dish as a modern spin on wonton mee that works: springy mee kia tossed in chilli oil, dried shrimp and kelp, and generously topped with tender braised char siew, boiled wonton, a crispy potato wrapped prawn, an onsen egg and spring onion.

Sembawang Traditional Claypot Rice
Feed your hungry brood with a hearty meal of claypot rice from this popular eatery, which cooks each portion of its signature dish in individual claypots, over a charcoal fire. This imparts a wonderful nutty smokiness to the rice, which is cooked with pungent salted fish, chicken and lup cheong. Charred crispy bits – the part every family fights over – complete the dish. The eatery is offering a set meal for three, which includes zichar dishes such as qing long cai (royale chives), crusty san lao bee hoon and garlic fried chicken, if you’re after a sumptuous feast.
How much From $53.80 for 3 pax

Green Sky Fried Kway Teow
Enjoy halal treats such as char kway teow, fried carrot cake and oyster omelette from this eatery at Bedok Corner Food Centre. The slippery char kway teow is infused with a robust wok hei, cooked with fresh cockles and served with a fiery chilli sauce on the side — a welcome sight for those who relish the additional heat. We recommend their oyster omelette, which features plump, juicy oysters and a crisp batter, as well as their savoury white carrot cake, which is amply folded in egg.

Lao Chuan Tong – Traditional Ice Cream *currently closed*
For young and old alike, there’s nothing that says, “Everything’s going to be alright,” quite like old-school Magnolia ice cream, cut into blocks and sandwiched between cottony soda bread slices or wafers. Order slabs of your favourite treat — there’s a comprehensive range of flavours including yam, sweet corn, mint chocolate and durian — from this supplier. It may not be scooped out of the back of a bike, but surely it’s enough to put a smile on everyone’s faces. While it’s currently not operating due to the enhanced Circuit Breaker measures, all of us kids look forward to their return!
How much From $8 per slab
Takeaway & delivery hours 2pm – 9pm
Delivery fee Free for order of at least three slabs

Zai Xing Vegetarian

Have this with their deep-fried mushroom rolls, which are wrapped in beancurd skin, mock char siew and yam ngoh hiang — a greasy, hearty local breakfast at its best.

To-Ricos Kway Chap
This popular stall in Old Airport Road Food Centre steeps its array of pig parts (intestines, stomach, skin and such) in a savoury, aromatic braising sauce flavoured with fried shallots. Its owner torches the pig’s trotters the day before and leaves them overnight, before braising them for just an hour and a half. Fans of this stall love how the innards here are thoroughly cleaned to remove any gamey pong, while the wide rice noodle sheets are thin and silky.
How much From $12
Takeaway & delivery hour: 11am – 1.30pm
Delivery fee $2-$8
