Bugis hawker stalls with good and cheap food


Bugis is home to two huge malls and plenty of cafes, so finding food at this popular area isn’t a challenge. What’s difficult, however, is hunting for nosh that doesn’t cost a bomb. Well, the next time you’re on a budget, skip the fancy restaurants and head straight to these Bugis hawker food stalls that offer delicious and cheap food. What’s best is they’re all located a short walk away from Bugis MRT Station!


1. New Rong Liang Ge Cantonese Roast Duck

I first spotted New Rong Liang Ge Cantonese Roast Duck when I was waiting for my Grab driver at Bugis+, and saw a snaking queue at this stall just opposite. So I paid a visit soon after, and realised why this stall is so popular. A plate of Char Siew Rice costs just $2.50, and comes with a decent amount of sweet, succulent char siew. Aside from char siew, they also serve soups, roast duck and sio bak, which I’d definitely try the next time I’m there.

Address: 269B Queen Street, #01-235, 3838 Eating Place, Singapore 182269

2. Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee

Open 24/7, Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee is where I’d go to for a bowl of well-made bak chor mee. At $3.50, you’ll get a generous amount of noodles that are firm to the bite, and topped with minced pork, mushrooms, and a few slices of pork and pork liver. Besides mee pok, their dry bak chor mee sua, which goes at the same price, is also worth a try.

Address: 492 North Bridge Road, Seng Huat Coffee House, Singapore 188737
Opening hours: Daily 24 hours


3. Bai Nian Niang Dou Fu

Bai Nian Niang Dou Fu is one of those stalls at Albert Centre Market & Food Centre that always sees a long queue. And those who frequent this yong tau foo stall will know they deserve the popularity vote. Each bowl of their Yong Tau Foo ($4.50/$5.50) comes with handmade items such as prawn ball and meat ball. The clear soup looks bland, but is in fact full of flavours and won’t leave you feeling thirsty from MSG.

4. Eleven Finger Scissors Curry Rice

Found in the same kopitiam as New Rong Liang Ge, Eleven Finger Scissors Curry Rice serves up mouthwatering curry rice. Every plate comes with three thick sauces, namely curry, braising sauce, and chilli gravy. A classic combination to get would be chap chye, fried pork chop and egg, which will cost a reasonable $3.50. If you’ve got space in your tummy for more, be sure to add on their curry chicken as well!

The signboard of Bedok Chwee Kueh simply states the Chinese characters for chee kueh. A branch of the famous stall at Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre, this outlet offers the same simple and satisfying chwee kueh topped with loads of chye poh. Prices start at $1 for two pieces, and it goes up $0.50 for every additional piece you order. Remember to ask for some chilli to give every mouthful a spicy kick.

6. Guan Kee Carrot Cake

While I usually prefer white carrot cake, I tend to go for the black version at Guan Kee Carrot Cake. Their chai tow kway is fragrant, toothsome, and comes in a generous amount even if you get the regular portion at $3. The black sauce adds a little sweetness to the moreish dish. If you want to try their white version as well, you can get a plate of both white and black chai tow kway at $5.

7. Ah Heng Curry Chicken Bee Hoon Mee

A piping hot bowl of curry bee hoon mee from Ah Heng Curry Chicken Bee Hoon Mee is what I’d go for if I happen to be at Bugis when it rains. Each bowl comes with coconutty curry broth and plenty of toppings. The best topping is no doubt the fat pieces of tau pok. Make sure it’s soaked in a good amount of the broth before you bite into the spongy tofu to let all the creamy curry gush out at once. Prices here range from $4.50 to $6.50.

Address: 269B Queen Street, #01-236, QS269 Food House, Singapore 180269

Leong Yeow is a little further from Bugis MRT Station compared to the rest on this list, but it’s worth the walk if you’re craving for chicken rice. Found just beside Sumo Bar Happy, this chicken rice stall has been around since I was a kid, and it continues to serve fragrant and delicious chicken rice till this day. Those who are famished can order both their Roasted Chicken and Steamed Chicken rice at $5.70 to get the best of both worlds.

For some really good Indian rojak, check out Sabeena’s. It’s located in the same kopitiam as Leong Yeow, so you can feast on chicken rice while sharing a plate of rojak with your mates. What’s good about this stall is that they fry the ingredients before serving it to you, so you’ll get a crispy and hot tray of tasty nosh. The thick savoury sauce that it comes with complements the food so well you’ll be asking for more.

Address: 261 Waterloo Street, #01-29, Nan Tai Eating House, Singapore 180261
Opening hours: Daily 9am to 7pm

Don’t worry if Ah Chew Desserts is full. Just head over to Albert Centre for some cheap and comforting Chinese desserts at Tian Pin Zan Dessert Station. Prices for all their desserts range from $1.50 to $2.20. My personal favourites here are their Black Sesame Paste ($2) and Black Glutinous ($1.50). To cool yourself down, try their Grass Jelly w/ Longan ($1.80) or Ice Kacang ($1.80).
