25 Amoy Street Food Centre Stalls To Visit When You’re In The CBD

16th April 2024

Amoy Street Food Centre guide


From wholesome fish soup to curry puffs and noodles awarded with the Michelin Bib Gourmand, here’s a list of the best stalls we recommend at Amoy Street Food Centre.


1. Big Bowls Project


amoy street food centre- big bowls project

We visited Big Bowls Project to try out their salmon rice bowls, and were definitely impressed by what we saw. Every bowl comes with a side of refreshing cucumbers, sliced cherry tomatoes and a jiggly onsen egg. We recommend their Szechuan Black Bean Salmon ($9), and Mentaiko Salmon ($10.50) bowls. Get the Szechuan Black Bean Salmon if you like your fish salty. The Mentaiko Salmon is nice and smoky. You can also opt to have salad greens instead of rice in your bowl.

Unit: #02-90
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 11:30am to 2pm

2. Pepper Bowl

The amazing thing about Pepper Bowl is that no dish costs more than $6! I highly suggest you top up $0.80 for an onsen egg, to give your meal a little more variety! Get their Spring Onion Pork Rice ($6.30), which comprises stir-fried pork tossed with spring onions. The pork is coated in a syrupy sweet sauce, while the meat is tender and juicy. If you’re a lover of all things spicy, you should definitely give their Black Pepper Beef Rice ($6.80) a try.

3. Lagoon In A Bowl

Lagoon In A Bowl is known for their healthy grain bowls. Their signature is the Mentaiko Salmon Bowl ($11). Albeit a little pricey for hawker fare, you may find this unique salmon bowl rather value for money! All the bowls sold here contains butterfly pea rice meant to imitate a blue lagoon. Meanwhile, the slab of torched mentaiko salmon represents a fish in the ‘water’. This delectable analogy tastes as good as it looks, too.

Opening hours: Mon-Thurs 11am to 3pm, 6pm to 8pm, Fri 11am to 3pm

If you’re prepared to brave the storm of office workers lining up outside Han Kee Fish Soup and wait for your turn, you’ll be rewarded with a hearty bowl of wholesome fish soup for lunch! Order their Sliced Fish Soup (from $5), it’s one of the cheapest dishes on the menu, and worth every penny. The broth is simple and light, yet brimming with umami. The slices of fish soaking inside taste so clean and fresh, they have a slight springiness as you chew.

Opening hours: Mon-Fri 11am to 3pm

5. A Noodle Story

A Noodle Story is a Michelin Bib Gourmand award-winning noodle stall that sells ramen with a unique local twist. A bowl of their Singapore Style Ramen ($10.80) comes with tender chashu pork belly, a snazzy potato-wrapped prawn, juicy wontons and a lava egg with a gooey core. These ingredients are stylishly arranged atop springy noodles tossed in XO sauce. The noodles are also accompanied by a small, savoury bowl of soup.

6. Piao Ji Fish Porridge

Piao Ji Fish Porridge is another fish soup stall in Amoy Street Food Centre with the ability to give Han Kee Fish Soup a run for their money. Freshly sliced fish simmer in a tasty, hearty broth. A classic bowl of Fish Soup costs $7, but you can add in prawns at the price of $10, for a stronger seafood taste.

Add a bowl of rice to complement your soup at an extra $0.50. The queue at this stall is equally as intense as the one over at Han Kee Fish Soup, so do come to the food centre mentally prepped to wait in line. The stallowner has mentioned that he will close down Piao Ji if he is unable to find a successor, so dine here while you still can.

Unit: #02-100
Opening hours: Tue-Wed, Fri-Sun 11am to 3:30pm
Piao Ji Fish Porridge is not a halal-certified eatery.


7. Yuan Chun Famous Lor Mee

You seldom see lor mee as appetising as the one at Yuan Chun Famous Lor Mee! Prices for a bowl of Lor Mee start at $3.50, but you are advised to get larger portions, for a more filling serving. Succulent bits of meat are scattered among the noodles, and the sour flavour from the vinegar pierces through the salty, thick gravy with a satisfying oomph. The standard at this stall dropped a while ago, but when the cravings strike, I say the lor mee here is still worth a try.

Unit: #02-79/80
Opening hours: Wed-Sat 7:30am to 2:30pm

Tuck into a comforting bowl of beef noodles at Hong Kee Beef Noodles! Yet another awardee of the Michelin Bib Gourmand, this place has been in operation for over 50 years now, and offers beef noodles in both soup and dry versions.

Get the Beef Noodles with Soup (from $6)! The soup is said to have been simmered for 24 hours before it is ready to be served, so you can imagine just how flavourful it must be. Not to mention, the lean slices of beef are cooked to medium-rare perfection – you can tell from the redness in the centre!

Unit: #01-42
Opening hours: Mon 9:30am to 2pm, Tue-Fri 11am to 7:30pm, Sat-Sun 9am to 2:30pm

9. J2 Famous Crispy Curry Puff

The last recipient of the Michelin Bib Gourmand at Amoy Street Food Centre goes to J2 Famous Crispy Curry Puff. You can find the popular pastry pretty much anywhere, but once you’ve tried the ones sold here, it’ll be hard to want to get your curry puffs elsewhere. The crust of their Curry Puff (from $1.50) is flaky and thin, and you can get it stuffed with a variety of moist fillings, from classics such as sardine and curry potato to more unique choices including yam and black pepper chicken.

10. Coffee Break

If you’re just looking for something light to sip or snack on, take your cravings to Coffee Break. As its name suggests, this place sells regular Kopi ($1.60) and Teh ($1.80), but also does more contemporary beverages such as Pumpkin Spice Latte ($4) and Hazelnut Mocha ($4).

They also put a spin on traditional toast, slathering them with interesting spreads such as Earl Grey Creme ($3.50) and Black Sesame ($3.50). These artisanal sandwiches and drinks have earned the stall much media attention and become a crowd-favourite amongst the working population in the CBD.

11. Ah Seng (Hai Nam) Coffee


ah seng kopi group

Ah Seng (Hai Nam) Coffee is known for their charcoal-grilled bread and Nanyang kopi. As they make their own kaya, you wouldn’t want to miss their Kaya Toast ($2.40 for two pieces), which is supposedly thin and crisp with a generous amount of kaya and butter. Also try their French Toast offering for $4—eggy, buttery, with a generous pat of kaya alongside. You can also add on two eggs for $1.60 or get a cup of Kopi O with your meal for $1.

Here’s one for ban mee loversGrandma Ban Mee only has six items on their menu with their noodles available in three options: Chilli, Dry, and Soup. Their Ban Mee Chilli ($5.80) is a favourite and is said to be moderately spicy with well-seasoned mushrooms, anchovies, and a gooey onsen egg. The soup version is also popular and known to be on the lighter side. If you like what you eat enough, you can also buy DIY versions of their chilli ban mian, and jars of their chilli crisp at the stall to take home.

With long lunch queues being a testament to their popularity, Ah Ter Teochew Fishball Noodles serves good food and good looks—the stall is manned by Gilbert Li who was voted 2005’s Most Handsome Hawker. A bowl of Small Fishball Noodles costs $4.50 and goes up to $10 for the Large portion.

If you’ve got a long lunch break with time to kill, consider queueing at Amoy Street Fried Kway Teow for a plate of wok hei goodness topped with blood cockles, sausages, bean sprouts, and fish cake. Starting from $4 for a basic plate, the Char Kway Teow is said to be on the sweet side and is drenched in dark soy sauce, giving it a wet texture.

15. Rayyan’s Waroeng Upnormal

While fusion food is becoming increasingly common, it’s rare to find Balinese-Japanese dishes like the ones at Rayyan’s Waroeng Upnormal. The stall sells classic dishes from Ayam Penyet ($5.50) to more unique ones including Tempura Pollock Fish ($6.50). If rice is a must-have in your meal, you can opt for their hearty donburi such as the Balinese Gyudon ($6.50) and Tempura Prawn Eggbowl ($6.50).

Save a few dollars on your daily cuppa when you visit Mad Roaster, a stall known for their affordable coffee. Aside from the usual suspects such as Cold Brew (from $4.50) and Americano ($3), they also serve Honey Butter Latte ($4.40), a beverage with melted honey and sea salt. While you can have your classic kaya toast set with two eggs here for $4.90, we suggest going for the Coffee Brioche Set ($6.10), where you get a barista-brewed coffee with a slice of their famous sweet babka toast.

18. The Original Vadai

While vadai may be popularly known as a pasar malam snack, they’ve made their way into hakwer centres thanks to The Original Vadai. Try the Prawn Vadai ($1.20) and Ikan Bilis Vadai ($1.20), or the Cheese Vadai ($4.50) for something more adventurous. Go ahead and ask for more complimentary green chillis if you prefer a little more spice with your vadai.

Considered the close cousin of kolo mee, kampua noodles are unique to Sibu, Sarawak, and are drier with lighter sauces. Try them for yourself at Swan City Noodle House, a Sarawakian hawker stall in Amoy Street Food Centre, known for their bowls of Sarawak Kampua Noodles ($5.80) as well as other specialities including Kolo Mee ($5.80)

20. Pho Hanoi

Vietnamese food in the CBD under $10 is hard to come by, so we’re thankful for Pho Hanoi. As its name suggests, the Vietnamese-owned hawker stall sells pho, which you can enjoy with your toppings of choice, be it Sliced Beef and Brisket ($6.80), or Beef Balls ($6). If you’re here at lunch, add either $1 to your pho for a hot drink, or $1.50 for a cold drink. If the weather is too hot for pho, get their dry Bun Cha (from $6.80) instead!

21. Spicelios

A Chinese hawker whipping up briyani is something you’d be right to be skeptical about, but Spicelios’ 4.9 review on Google should turn that skepticism into intrigue. The relatively new stall is run by a former SAF major, whose passion for cooking led him down the hawker path. Try their signature chicken briyani set, priced at $6.50—where you get a generous amount of fragrant basmati rice, a well-marinated chicken thigh, and sides. If you’re looking for something that’s easier to eat while on the go, get their Giant Wrap instead. At $6.90, this tortilla wrap is chock full of ingredients, including the option to have it filled with briyani chicken!

22. Spicy Wife Nasi Lemak


spicy-wife-flatlay

If you don’t believe in paying Coconut Club prices for your nasi lemak, head on over to Spicy Wife. This Amoy Street Food Centre stall is dubbed a dupe for Coconut Club, albeit at more affordable prices. Try the Aromatic Chicken ($6.50), where your nasi lemak comes with a whole chicken leg, marinated overnight in an eight-ingredient spice rub. The chicken is deep-fried in small batches, so you won’t have to worry about soggy meat when you get your plate.

23. Chun Feng Man Mian


Chun Feng Man Mian Truffle Char Siew Noodle

For levelled-up wonton noodles, pay a visit to Chun Feng Man Mian. They’re best known for their Truffle Char Siu Noodle ($9). Sure, it’s not the cheapest hawker dish around, but you are getting noodles laced with truffle oil, truffle powder, and actual bits of mushroom. Each serving comes with QQ mee kia made with a special recipe, all tossed in a truffle sauce, which is then topped with Iberico pork char siew roasted overnight.

If you’re looking for Mexican food that won’t break the bank, then try James Quesadillas & Brunch. The stall, which opens from breakfast, sells burritos, grain bowls, and salad bowls, the latter two with a distinct Mexican flair. We’re big fans of their Pulled Pork Burrito ($6.50 for 10-inch, $8 for 12-inch), which comes packed with a generous amount of juicy pulled pork in the middle. Definitely add on $1.50 to get your mains with chips and salsa as a side—the salsa is made in-house too!
