10 Beauty World Food Gems Including Dim Sum And Mookata Spots

19th March 2018

Beauty World food gems


Having been a Hillview resident for the past 20 years, I’ve come to discover a good number of things to eat around the vicinity. Separated by one MRT stop, Beauty World is my go-to spot for delicious grub at any time of the day. Here are some Beauty World food places that are worth travelling down for.


1. Ajiya Okonomiyaki


Beauty World Food - Ajiya Okonomiyaki

Over at Ajiya Okonomiyaki, you can get the best of both worlds by cooking and eating your own okonomiyaki. The okonomiyaki at Ajiya comes in four different typesSeafood Deluxe ($15+), Meat Lovers ($14+), Ajiya’s Combo ($15+), and Veggie Delight ($12+). If you are not confident in your cooking skills, you can always get the staff to help you. The exterior of the okonomiyaki is grilled till crispy and brown, whereas the interior is relatively softer. Besides okonomiyaki, Ajiya offers other grub such as Garlic Fried Rice ($6+) and Scallop Mentai ($14+) – dishes I would highly recommend as well.

Whenever I walk pass The Chicken House, a kopitiam located opposite Beauty World MRT Station, the aroma of BBQ meat always hits me right in the nose. And that tantalising scent comes from none other than Mookalicious. Their mookata platter for two and four is priced at $25.80 and $38.90 respectively. Some items in the platters are pork belly, prawns, squid, fishballs, meatballs, sausages, golden mushroom, and tang hoon.

3. Top 1 Hand Made Noodle

Found within Beauty World Food Centre is Top 1 Hand Made Noodles. Although this stall has existed for a very long time, its standards never once dropped. Their Ban Mian Soup ($3) is always served piping hot, and comes with a generous amount of meatballs and braised mushrooms. With an additional $0.50, you can opt to get the dry version – noodles tossed in dark soya sauce. If you are one who loves a fiery kick in your food, feel free to request for their spicy chilli to be added into your dry ban mian.

4. Jew Kit Chicken Rice

I used to get my chicken rice fix at either Five Star Chicken Rice or Boon Tong Kee at Beauty World – that was until I discovered Jew Kit Chicken Rice. What sets their Steamed Chicken ($18 for half, $35 for whole) apart from the rest is the distinct layer of jelly-like fats between the skin and meat, making the pieces silkier and more succulent. Their chicken is drizzled with sesame oil, and the meat is both tender and juicy.  

Address: 170 Upper Bukit Timah Road, #B1-16/17/18, Bukit Timah Shopping Centre, Singapore 588179

5. Chun Kee Seafood White Bee Hoon


Beauty World Food - Chun Kee Seafood White Bee Hoon

I’ve been a huge fan of white bee hoon ever since I tried the one at Sembawang. However, I am not one who frequently travels far for food. So when I saw Chun Kee Seafood White Bee Hoon at Beauty World last year, I couldn’t help but squeal in excitement. For just $5, their Seafood White Bee Hoon is served in a huge plate boasting an immense amount of vegetables, sotong, and prawns. What makes this stall special is their introduction of Red Beehoon ($5), a spicy version of the normal white beehoon, where sambal and chilli padi are used to make up the gravy.

6. Mong Kok Dim Sum


Beauty World Food - Mong Kok Dim Sum

I often head to Mong Kok Dim Sum for supper whenever a wave of hunger hits me in the middle of the night. Though Mong Kok Dim Sum is well-known for their dim sum such as Custard Bun ($4.20), Spinach Dumplings ($4.20), and Xiao Long Bao ($4), it’s their other dishes that make me go back for more. Their Beef Hor Fun ($6) gives off a smoky charred flavour, as it had been touched by the breath of the wok. In addition, their La La Beehoon ($12), which is not in the menu, has a broth similar to the taste of sliced fish bee hoon.

Address: 8 Cheong Chin Nam Road, Singapore 599733
Nearest exit: B
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 11am to 2am, Sun 11am to 12:30am
Tel: 8686 8829


7. Nonya Delicatessen

Nonya Delicatessen is a humble stall specialising in Peranakan cuisine. I’ve been eating their ever-so-scrumptious Mee Siam ($5) and Laksa ($5) since young. The former contains a broth that is both light and refreshing, whereas the latter has just the right amount of coconut milk added into it. Besides their noodle dishes, Nonya Delicatessen also offers my all-time-favourite Nasi Kunyit ($7). The yellow basmati rice has a strong ginger fragrance, and the huge tender chicken leg that comes with it is doused in a lemak curry sauce.

8. Revelry

Revelry is one of the few cafes based along the stretch of Lorong Kilat. They specialise in both sweet and savoury waffles, and is most well-known for their Chicken & Waffles ($17). The batter of the juicy chicken thigh was done just right, while the buttery waffle is crispy on the outside, yet soft and fluffy on the inside. Revelry’s other classics include their Signature Burffle ($18), beef patties sandwiched in between two Belgian waffles, and On Cloud Nine ($15), a waffle topped with blue cotton candy surrounding a scoop of ice-cream and a few pieces of marshmallows.

9. Hambaobao


Beauty World Food - Hambaobao

Hambaobao is a stall I would willingly camp at before their shutters are even raised. Due to its immense popularity, my favourite Crispy Pork Belly Burger ($5.50) and Fairy Fries ($1.50) always get sold out before the stall closes. The pork belly is extremely succulent, and delivers a burst of flavour with every bite you take. The fairy fries are hand-cut potatoes, making them of a better quality than your typical hawker stall fries. Other burgers such as The Classic Beef ($5.50) are worth a try as well. Do note that during weekends, waiting time for their burgers can go up to an hour!

10. G7 Sin Ma Claypot Live Frog


Beauty World Food - G7 Sin Ma Live Seafood

A popular supper place at Beauty World is G7 Sin Ma Claypot Live Frog, which specialises in Frog Leg Porridge ($22 for five frogs and one claypot of porridge). The frog meat is not only tender, but also flavourful from soaking up the dark soya sauce gravy it’s cooked in. Customers can have the choice to spice up their gravy with chilli. The porridge is thick, but slightly bland; throw in some dark soya sauce gravy to give it a boost in flavour!
