Geylang is known for a couple of pleasurable things but you probably only care for those in the odd-numbered Lorongs right? Joke aside, even today, Geylang still reigns as a popular buzzing food haven in Singapore especially after the sun sets. Without further ado, here’re 12 of our favorite places that we frequent in Geylang!

Kwong Satay


Tucked away in a small coffee shop, Kwong Satay offers a delectable assortment of satay skewers to fill your supper tummy. We love the Kurobuta Pork Belly Satay. There’s a minimum order of 10 pieces($12) so you’d better bring someone else along to share the joy. While it was more expensive than regular satay, I thought that it was worth it since the quality of pork belly was superior and the serving was really generous. I liked that it was really fatty and nicely charred. The rich sauce had a nice flavor without being too sweet. Although the waiting time was a little longer than usual, I think that you’ll find yourself going back for more once you’ve tried it.

Kwong Satay (Geylang)

Address: Geylang Lorong 29, Sing lian Eating House, Singapore 389504

Opening Hours: 5pm to 11pm daily. Closed on Wednesdays.

Swee Guan Hokkien Mee


If you happen to be going for your satay fix at Lorong 29, then you might as well get a plate of hokkien mee too. For $5, you get 3 medium-sized prawns, sotong, a rather generous serving of pork slices and a plate of noodles that carry a smoky hint. Although spicy, the fragrant chili added a fiery punch that really elevated the flavor of the dish.

Opening Hours: 5pm to 11pm daily. Closed on Wednesdays.

Leong Kee Bak Kut Teh


Bak Kut Teh (BKT) is one of the popular dishes that Singaporeans just love. I prefer the peppery version but the herbal BKT at Leong Kee Bak Kut Teh surprised me, in a good way. The light-colored broth was fragrant, surprisingly peppery, and not too oily. However, it could have been more flavourful. We also had the dry Bak Kut Teh which sees pork ribs covered in a dark, rich, and thick sauce. I liked the consistency of the sauce which complemented the pork really well.

Bali Nasi Lemak


As you probably already know, eating supper isn’t healthy. So if you’re going to eat supper, might as well make the best of it right? Bali Nasi Lemak is bound to quell your midnight cravings for oily food. The nasi lemak comes with a generous serving of crispy fried chicken, and a special Indonesian black sweet sauce chicken that just hits the spot. The otah was thick and I liked that it didn’t have a fishy taste. The vegetables were a tad disappointing though – they weren’t fresh, and were bland. Nevertheless, if you’re craving nasi lemak late at night, Bali Nasi Lemak is the place to visit.

126 Eating House

Geylang 126

Yet another popular supper spot, 126 Eating House is known for their dim sum. Good dim sum is difficult to find and most Singaporeans usually like either 126 Eating House or Swee Choon. I prefer Swee Choon but 126 isn’t too shabby either. The eatery opens for 24 hours so this is one place you can always go to to satisfy your dim sum cravings, except on Tuesdays. We had Siew Mai, Century Egg Porridge, Prawn Chee Cheong Fun and Braised Pork Belly Bun. I’ve always liked the prawn chee cheong fun because the fresh prawns are very crunchy and succulent. I don’t usually order porridge when I come to 126 but I was impressed by the gooey texture and pleasant flavors.

Eminent Frog Porridge


Frogs aren’t the best-looking animals on earth (aka ugly) but somehow, they taste really good when they are cooked well. Although Eminent also offers tze char dishes, you’ll notice that almost everyone, if not everyone, is here for frog porridge. For $16, you get 3 frogs (buy 2 get 1 free)! We ordered a pot of 3 frogs with spring onion, and another pot of 3 frogs with chicken essence. The gooey porridge is served separately. The frog dish with the spring onions was very fragrant, and the frogs were fresh. I especially loved the sauce! The frogs with chicken essence had a distinct sweetness. Overall, I preferred the frogs with spring onions, and will be back for more!

Opening Hours: 5pm to 12am on Sundays, 5pm to 4am on Mondays to Saturdays.

Yong He Eating House


Yong He eating house is dedicated to soya bean products – including everyone’s favorite traditional tau huay zui (soya bean milk) and tau huay (soya beancurd). It could be because of the heat or the savory food that we had earlier, but the soya bean milk was just heavenly. Because 油条(dough fritters) tastes exceptionally delicious with cold soya bean milk, we recommend ordering a stick or two to pair with your chilled soya bean drink. They also serve other variants of tau huay (soya beancurd) which may please the more adventurous. Since it is pretty near to the rest of the places listed here, you really shouldn’t miss Yong He.

JB Ah Meng

JB Ah Meng

If you’re heading out with your family or a group of friends, it’s not easy to find a place that will satisfy everyone. Fortunately, JB Ah Meng serves a wide array of delicious tze char dishes that will more than please your dinner companions. As featured in the 2016 Michelin Guide, JB Ah Meng restaurant is famous for their white pepper crabs and a very special 三楼米粉 (San Lou Mi Fen). Unlike common black pepper crabs which come in a rather heavy and savory sauce, the white pepper crabs offer the same great flavor with a pleasant peppery taste. Although the crabs are not impressively big, I thought that the sweetness of the crabs complemented the pepperiness of the sauce. The三楼米粉 is another dish that you have to try. Although it doesn’t look super attractive, the dish carries a fragrant wok hei. The contrast between crispy and charred beehoon, and soft and moist beehoon will win your heart. They’re so popular that there’s no way you can just walk in and get a table. We advise that you call ahead to get a table so you don’t have to starve whilst watching people enjoy the good food.

JB Ah Meng

Address: 534 Geylang Lorong 30, Singapore 389490

Opening Hours: 530pm to 230am daily.

Fishball Story


If you’re looking for something less extravagant, yet fulfilling, Fishball Story could just be your be-all and end-all bowl of fishball noodles. Also featured in the 2016 Michelin Guide, Fishball Story is not your run-of-the-mill fishball noodles. Helmed by a young hawkerpreneur, Douglas, Fishball Story started off as a small hawker stall which has since grown to what it is today. The firm and bouncy fishballs that he sells are made fresh daily from 100% yellow tail fish, without the addition of flour. We usually go for their premium handmade fishball noodles ($6) which comprises fishballs, fishcakes, fried fish skin, a fried bean curd, fish skin, and QQ noodles. For $6, this bowl of fishball noodles is really well worth the money. You can also opt for the regular fish ball noodles ($4.50) if you don’t have a big appetite.

Penang Seafood Restuarant

Penang Seafood Restaurant

Located near Aljunied MRT, Penang Seafood Restaurant is known to be packed, especially on weekends. What makes this restaurant stand out from its competition is their offering of authentic Penang dishes. One of the bestsellers is the Penang Char Kway Teow ($5/small, $7.50/medium and $10/large). The light-coloured kway teow comes packed with ingredients such as cockles, bean sprouts, egg, and prawns! The star of the restaurant is actually the Assam Laksa ($5), which we loved. The rich broth has shredded mackerel in it, and the entire dish is just delicious.

Geylang Lorong 9 Beef Hor Fun

Lorong 9 Beef Horfun

Generally, hor fun isn’t something that many of us get excited about. However, Geylang Lorong 9 Beef Hor Fun supposedly dishes out the best beef hor fun in Singapore. There have been rumours that the standard had dropped so we had to try it for ourselves. We’ve tried it on multiple occasions but it seems like there’s no consistency. At times, we get a plate of nicely charred kway teow with a generous amount of fragrant beef slices, but we have also received kway teow drenched in a diluted and bland gravy before. Nonetheless, the beef hor fun still makes for quite a satisfying meal.

Opening Hours: 5pm to 3am from Mondays to Saturdays, 5pm to 230am on Sundays.

L32 Handmade Noodles



Lorong 32 Geylang Handmade Noodles serves up a comforting bowl of ban mian. The superior broth is boiled for at least 10 hours before it is served. We tried the dry ban mian as well, and were impressed by the dark sauce that they use in the dish. The sauce coats the noodles evenly, lending it an inviting fragrance that will make you salivate before you even start eating. I liked that the sauce wasn’t overly sweet, nor too salty. Give the noodles a good toss, and you’re all set for a good meal. Don’t believe me, try it for yourself.

Eating in Geylang can be a chore if you don’t drive. Besides the far distances you have to trot, you also have to be vigilant not to wander onto the dark alleys of Geylang. If you’re willing to go the extra mile (pun intended) for the food, walking from Aljunied MRT shouldn’t pose much of a problem. Make sure you plan your route well and I assure you, you’ll be back for more.
