On a weekly basis we curate the latest reviews on Singapore hawker and street food stall. Whether it's Hainanese Chicken Rice, Roti Prata, Nasi Lemak, Prawn Noodles, Laksa or Popiah, we've got it covered.
Lor Mee 卤面, the Hokkien-based gooey-gravy hawker food with thick-flat yellow noodles may not be everybody’s kind of dish.
It was a rainy Monday morning when I arrived early at Pek Kio Market and Food Centre for my lunch, having to run some errands nearby. Unfortunately, as it was Monday, most of the stall were closed. I look around to see what was available to eat and realised that about half the stalls were actually closed. Nevertheless, I discovered a long queue of people waiting for prawn noodles at Lai Hiang at Lai Hiang Pork Rib Prawn Mee and decided to do what most Singaporeans would do – join the queue!
Heng Kee Lor Mee, which has been around for more than 40 years at Bendemeer Market & Food Centre, is manned by a pair of siblings who took over the business after their mother passed on. The Miss Tam Chiak checked out what makes Heng Kee Lor Mee and its deep fried pork belly oh so delicious.
Tucked away in a corner of a tiny food centre at Lorong 4 Toa Payoh, Rahmath Cheese Prata could be easily disguised as one of those run-of-the-mills prata shops that you will see at every corner of your local food centre or coffeeshop. The Makanholic team made 2 visits to give an in-depth review o f Rahmath Cheese Prata
Sin Ming Roti Prata is the highest rated roti prata stall in Singapore by popular vote. They serve a very unique and delicious coin prata, a must try! Read this detailed review by The Hungry Geek and decide if Sin Ming is your next stop.
As they say, the best taste tests are the ones that are done at the same time. We did a review of Lai Hiang Pork Rib Prawn Mee just the day ahead, and found it to be really delicious, especially for the dry version. As Wah Kee was closed on Mondays, we decided to make a trip back to Pek Kio Food Centre and try out the Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles to see if it really matched up to its 4th placing in the Makanholic's Ranking of Rankings for top Prawn Noodles in Singapore.
Sheng Seng Fried Prawn Noodles is located right opposite Lai Hiang Pork Rib Prawn Mee at Pek Kio Market and Food Centre. If you have followed our blog posts, you would have realised that we rated Lai Hiang Pork Rib Prawn Mee very highly. On each of our visits to Pek Kio Market and Food Centre during lunchtime, we would see snaking queues with as long as twenty people queuing at Lai Hiang.
The EatBook team shares an indepth review on Hua Kee Chicken Rice and goes behind the scenes with Madam Tan, the proud owner of the famous stall at Redhill Food Centre
Nothing is more Singaporean than chicken rice, the country’s unofficial national dish. The Expat Living crew finds the best chicken rice in Singapore.
Tucked away at the corner of Tekka Centre is Heng Gi Goose and Duck Rice. Tekka Centre is often known for its Indian street food (which we will cover in due course), as well as the famous 545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles, which is ranked 8th in our Makanholic's Ranking of Rankings for the Best Prawn Noodles in Singapore. Nevertheless, Heng Gi Goose and Duck Rice has been around for more than 60 years.
Tree Coconut carries on a family legacy of serving up tasty nasi lemak. The stall is currently run by a two-person crew: Charlene, the OG hawker’s daughter, and her friend Yuting, both of who are 24 and 26 years old respectively. EatBook manages another brilliant indepth review of the Tree Coconut story.
