#01-397 A Noodle Story

#02-95 Ah Seng (Hai Nam) Coffee
The coffee is thick with the right balance of sugar and milk. When you bring it close to your nose, you can smell the distinct coffee aroma. The kaya toast bread is a signature dish that cannot be missed. Crispy bread with tasty butter and kaya, plus two half-boiled eggs, is the best way to start your day. They make their own kaya which is neither too sweet nor too greasy. You can also try their French toast which is another signature dish. The bread is coated entirely with eggs and toasted over a charcoal fire.

#02-131 Ah Tee Ko Ko Mee
Unlike many other fishball noodle stalls, Ah Tee Ko Ko Mee doesn’t have an extensive menu. There’s only Ko Ko Noodles ($3.50 / $4) in two versions — dry or soup. The stall offers sides, such as Homemade Ngoh Hiang ($1.50) and Handmade Fishcake ($1) as well. What I like most about the ko ko mee here is the variety of ingredients added. You get fishballs, fishcakes, minced meat and even char siew in just one bowl! If you’re a fan of chilli, you’ll be glad to know that the chilli served at Ah Tee Ko Ko Mee packs quite a punch!

#01-14 Ah Ter Teochew Fishball Noodles
Even though their signboard states “fish ball noodle”, I think the “star” is that solid bowl of soup. For $5, you get a bowl full of ingredients such as a prawn, pork slices, kidney slices, liver, fish cake slices and lots of fresh minced meat. Every mouthful of noodles, some ingredients, and soup, is so satisfying. If you want to skip the queue, head there after 2pm.

Opening Hours: Mon to Fri 7am - 4pm
#01-01 Amoy Street Fried Kway Teow
This stall originated from a push cart along Boon Tat Street which started in the 1960s. Boasting a nice texture and good consistency, this char kway teow leans more towards the savoury side. The kway teow was moist, but not wet, and the cockles were fresh.

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 9.30am to 2.30pm. Closed on Sundays.
#02-90 Big Bowls Project
Big Bowls Project is a 100% Muslim-owned stall that sells Halal poke bowls. We ordered the Mentaiko Salmon ($8.90) and the Szechuan Black Bean Salmon ($7.90). The former boasts an impressive mentaiko sauce, and a nicely charred and tender salmon. The latter was reminiscent of the black bean sauce smeared atop traditional Chinese-style steamed fish.

#02-129 Bee Kee Wanton Noodles
Bee Kee prides itself on its signature truffle wanton mee($6) — a rare sight in the local hawker scene. The noodles are doused with truffle oil and topped with fried and steamed wanton, char siew and vegetables.

#02-78 Coffee Break
Currently managed by third-generation hawkerpreneurs, Coffee Break’s beginnings can be traced way back to the 1930s. At present, the stall breaks away from tradition by offering innovative and interesting flavours of coffee, tea and toast. The sea salt caramel latte ($4) is a good modern addition to the hawker kopi scene..

#01-21 Famous Crispy Curry Puff
The handmade curry puffs here are always served hot. There are only two options available – sardine, and the usual potato filling. This is the perfect tea-break snack so do go before 3pm or you’ll run the risk of leaving empty-handed.

#01-07 Grandma Ban Mee
The menu is straightforward with only 3 options (Chilli/ Dry/Soup). We were recommended their signature dry chilli ban mee ($5). The springy noodles come with a moderately spicy chilli paste, egg, ikan bilis and minced meat. The ban mee soup ($4) is lighter than that of many other ban mee stalls, and is topped with ingredients such as mushrooms, black fungus, ikan bills, and vegetables.

Opening Hours: Mon-Fri 10.30am-2pm.
#02- 126 Gyu Nami
To ensure consistency, the chef painstakingly checks that there is 100g of wagyu beef in each donburi. Gyu Nami’s rendition of beef donburi contains a rather uncommon element — yogurt sauce— which goes well with the medium rare beef.

Opening Hours: 11am to 3pm daily. Closed on Sundays
#02-122 Han Kee Fish Soup
Head here for sliced fish soup with bee hoon, porridge, or rice in three sizes ($5-$9). They also do fish head soup which is more expensive by a dollar. We ordered the medium Sliced Fish Soup Bee Hoon ($7) and the bowl was filled to the brim with many pieces of thickly cut mackerel. The fish was fresh and bathed in a light, clear broth that had a hint of sweetness.

#01-42 Hong Kee Beef Noodle
This hawker has been selling beef noodles for almost sixty years. There are soup and dry versions but many prefer the latter for its flavoursome gravy. The beef served here is succulent so look forward to a satisfying bowl of dry beef kway teow!

#01-18 Hoo Kee Rice Dumpling
Bak Chang can be overly-oily and “gelat” at times but Hoo Kee’s bak chang is well prepared and doesn’t contain fatty meat. Chunks of lean tender meat are complemented by chestnuts and mushrooms of good quality. .

#01-11 Koryori Hayashi
This Japanese stall offers a decent variety of dons, udon, ramen and pasta. Prices start at $6, with the most popular dish being the Namban Don. Koryori Hayashi uses mentaiko sauce instead of tartar to make the don more exciting. The nicely fried karaage was moist and juicy.

#01-48 Lagoon In A Bowl
Lagoon in a Bowl was launched with ONLY one dish on their menu — Norwegian Salmon Rice Bowl ($10)! The chef created a “salmon swimming in a lagoon” by adding a bed of blue butterfly pea rice. “Swimming” in the “lagoon” is a slab of sous-vide fresh Norwegian salmon topped with homemade mentaiko sauce, and accompanied with ingredients such as furikake and cherry tomatoes.

#02-81 Li Xing Nasi Lemak
Our standard Nasi Lemak ($3) came with a chicken wing, luncheon meat, fish cake and ikan bilis. The coconut taste in their rice was quite strong. Mix the sweet sambal into the rice for even more flavour!

#02-102 Pepper Bowl
This humble stall specialises in Black Pepper Beef Hor Fun ($5). With every bowl cooked to order, it might take awhile for you to receive your food, but we promise the food is worth the wait! All dishes come with the option to add an onsen egg($0.60).

Opening Hours: 11am to 3pm Monday to Friday. Closed on Weekends & PH.
#02-100 Piao Ji Fish Porridge
Having queued for so long, we tried the most expensive item on their menu which was pomfret with fresh prawns soup ($12). The pomfret tasted so much better than the usual batang (mackerel) fish soup. Unlike the red chilli that come with the usual fish soup, Piao Ji’s unique chilli sauce has salted beans, chilli padi, and pickled ginger.

#01-58 SAP Thai Food
A unique must-have from SAP is the Thai Basil Mama Noodles ($5), which is highly raved about. Rarely do we see Thai basil chicken being served with instant noodles. Yes, the noodles used are MAMA noodles from Thailand. While the thought of noodles doused in MSG might put some off, SAP promises that there’s no MSG added. The noodles boasted a mild flavour that complements the Thai basil chicken perfectly. The sauce set our mouths and lips on fire but the lingering heat was also strangely addictive.

Opening Hours: Weekdays 10am to 9pm. Weekends 10am to 3pm.
#02-114 Spinach Soup
The stall specializes in 2 types of comforting soups ($3.50), which are boiled from scratch. The male owner uses ingredients such as chicken bones and fresh spinach to create a wholesome soup that is light on the palate(no MSG!) If you wish to have some carbs to fill your tummy, you may opt for a selection of noodles, or rice for 50 cents. The first soup (containing spinach, minced pork, prawns, mushrooms and wolfberry) has a subtle mushroom flavour, which offers the soup some sweetness. The second soup sees century and salted eggs take the place of prawns and pork, and the combination won my heart.

Opening Hours: Mon-Fri, 11am-2pm
#02-125 Wah Kee Noodles
Wah Kee prices their Wanton Noodle at $3.50, and offers other staples such as Dumpling Noodle ($3.50) and Mushroom Noodle ($3.50). We all agreed that it was an above average bowl of wanton mee, with the wetness and seasoning of the springy noodles done perfectly. Wah Kee’s char siew was on the smokier side, and each wanton was plump and packed with more ingredients than usual.

#02-79/80 Yuan Chun Famous Lor Mee
The lor mee’s gravy is thick, fragrant, and very rich in flavour. The combination of ngoh hiang, boiled shark’s meat, pork belly bits, was so tantalising. I was worried about the “kee” smell of the yellow noodles, so I opted for a mix of bee hoon and noodles. Don’t forget to add sliced chilli, minced garlic and vinegar to the lor mee. Prices start from $2.50.
