5 affordable eats around Clarke Quay - Ride on to flavour town!

Clarke Quay is a busy and beautiful place in Singapore. It offers a great number of eateries in the area. Let's look at some of the most affordable.


Yan Kee Noodle House

Yan Kee Noodle House is extremely popular amongst the locals for both its price as well as its food. It is located right opposite the Clarke Quay MRT so it isn't hard to spot at all. Notable dishes here include the Bak Chor Mee Sua as well as its Mee Pok. The noodles here are cooked to perfection with the correct amount of vinegar and chili. Portion size is something to be commended for, especially for the price of $3.50. The spot is open 24 hours a day for 6 days straight, Sunday is when they close down each week.


Chew Kee or Chiew Kee Soy Sauce Chicken Noodles

Soy sauce chicken noodles are a staple, they come recommended from all the locals as well as the tourists who try this dish. You can find this dish at the Michelin starred Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken & Rice, however, with its long queues getting in can be rather tough. Great affordable alternative options are available at two locations, Chew Kee and Chiew Kee. Both these spots are in the same lane so you won't have trouble locating one after the other. Both their egg noodles are springy and the chicken is cooked to be perfectly tender, while the soya sauce elevates this dish. You could enjoy a dish for around $4.50 and definitely check out their dumpling soup which also comes recommended by many.


People's Park Complex Food Centre

People's Park Complex Food Centre is a hawker centre that is located right in the middle of Chinatown. Incredibly popular amongst many, the place generally needs no introduction. Great dishes to try here are the Koo Kee Yong Tao Foo Mee, the pork rice or even the Tao Ji Roasted Duck. A highly recommended place to try here would be the Loh Mei stall, it's one of the very few stalls in Singapore that sell the Cantonese dish. You'll have to proceed with warning though as the sauce is made using fermented bean curd and might not appeal to everyone. If you're looking for the best restaurants in Clarke Quay, do not miss out on these places mentioned on this list. And if you're looking for a great place to dine in and stay at while you're visiting you'll find a great many options, like the Park Hotel Clarke Quay for example.


Barcook Bakery

Raved my many for their perfectly baked bread, Barcook Bakery can be found right in The Central. This joint offers some delicious warm baked goods that are a must try if you're visiting Singapore. The Shio Pan is a notable snack that comes recommended by many. It is a quaint pastry that is slightly salted and crunchy on the outside, and has a delicious chewy, buttery filling inside. Another great pastry they offer is the Cheese Croissant, this simple and delicious treat comes with a stick of cheese baked in its centre. The Central outlet serves kopi and teh as per usual and they make excellent accompaniments with their pastries.


Victor's Kitchen

The Victor's Kitchen branch at Chinatown Point is relatively new, but they offer some of the most delicious dishes for your budget on this list. Highlight dishes here include their dim sum, the Char Siew Bo Lo Bao and the Liu Sha Bao. The Yuan Yang and Milk Tea come highly recommended as well.
