Aw’s Signature Minced Pork Noodles

Aw’s Signature Minced Pork Noodles

Their Signature Noodle ($5) is my favourite. The bowl of noodles is covered by more than 10 add-ons; handmade fishball, deep-fried meatball, stewed sliced mushrooms, fish maw, quail egg… the list goes on. Their Braised Pork Noodle ($4) and Fish Maw Bee Hoon ($4) also get two thumbs-up!

Lawa Bintang

Lawa Bintang

Lawa Bintang has set the bar high with their Lobster Nasi Lemak ($22). Covered with a trio of cheeses and herbs, the lobster was well-seasoned and paired well with the classic nasi lemak rice. They also offer other options such as salmon ($9), soft-shell crab ($9) and smoked duck ($9).

Nonya Ayam Buah Keluak

Nonya Ayam Buah Keluak

I've always had the impression that Peranakan cuisine is only to be eaten with parents due to the hefty bill it usually comes with. Found in a hawker centre, Popo And Nana’s Delights is an exception. At $6 a set, you can get dishes such as Nonya Ayam Buah Keluak, Nonya Babi Assam, Eurasian Beef Smore, and Pig Maw Soup.

Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Roti Prata

Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Roti Prata

Roti prata always comes to mind when I’m feeling peckish on Saturday mornings. If you’re in the East, be sure to check out Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Roti Prata. Their Kosong Crispy Prata ($0.90) has a good contrast of crispy and soft textures all in one. When you bite through it, the first sensation is a crunch, then you’re into a soft and moist centre. For a more substantial breakfast, order the Egg Prata ($1.40) instead. It goes well with both Dalcha and Fish Curry.

Kim Keat Hokkien Mee

Kim Keat Hokkien Mee

You can find Hokkien mee at almost all hawker centres in Singapore, but the Claypot Hokkien Mee ($10/$15/$20/$25/$30) from Kim Keat Hokkien Mee truly takes the cake. Served in a clay pot comprising of white and yellow noodles, egg, seafood, sliced pork belly, and deep-fried pork belly. The fried pork belly is a winner for me; it has distinct layers of tender meat, juicy fats, and crispy crackling. Each spoonful also has a strong wok hei fragrance, making it quite simply, moreish.

5 Star Corner

5 Star Corner

Head on down to 5 Star Corner at Hougang for some cheap and good classic Western food, Singapore-styled. I believe for many of us, our primary and secondary after-school activities probably involved feasting out with friends on Western food that either comes deep-fried or on a sizzling hot plate. The portions here are huge and prices are justified. Get their massive Chicken Cutlet at $6 or Fish & Chips at $6.

Mee Siam and Lotong

Mee Siam and Lotong

When asked what are some outstanding food I have tried as a writer at Eatbook, I’ll be sure to bring up Mee Siam ($3) and Lontong ($3) from Jia Xiang. Carbs of the dishes, namely bee hoon and rice cakes, are fully hidden by a myriad of ingredients. The mee siam includes a hard-boiled egg, a thick slice of omelette, chilli done two ways, crisp croutons, ikan bilis, tau kwa, lime, dried shrimps, and spring onions. The lontong features a medley of julienned vegetables such as carrots, yam, and cabbage. Both of which, are delicious to the last drop.

Satay Bee Hoon

Satay Bee Hoon

If your friends are fans of both satay and bee hoon, surprise them with a plate of Satay Bee Hoon ($4) from Sin Chew Satay Bee Hoon. This large plate includes sliced pork, prawns, cuttlefish, tau pok, and a bed of bee hoon doused in satay gravy. The gravy was fragrant and thick with the right amount of peanut bits. Alternatively, you can try their Cuttlefish Kang Kong ($4) that comes in a sweet red sauce instead.

I Love Burger Lah

I Love Burger Lah

Introduce har cheong gai to your friends in the form of a burger! Order the Har Cheong Gai Burger ($4) from I Love Burger Lah!, which is located at Ghim Moh Food Centre. The burger is made up of a deep-fried prawn paste patty with BBQ sauce and maple syrup drizzled atop. Order it with an interesting side of fries such as Salted Butterscotch Fries ($4) and Salted Caramel Fries with Himalayan Pink Salt ($4).
