Bishan Food Guide: 10 Places For Mala Claypot Noodles, Famous Chicken Rice And More

7th May 2024

Bishan food guide

People often debate whether the East or West has better food, but central Singapore rarely gets the recognition it deserves. As someone who grew up in the quaint neighbourhood of Bishan, I can testify that it is home to plenty of affordable food and hidden gems. Aside from Junction 8 eateries, here are the best Bishan food place to check out!


1. Shi Xiang Ge 


Ask any Bishan resident for their best Chinese noodles recommendation, and they’ll name you Shi Xiang Ge, located above Bishan bus interchange. Focusing on Shan Xi cuisine, this stall sells items such as Minced Pork Noodles ($6.50) and Mala Claypot Vermicelli ($7), but the most popular option is the Beef La Mian ($7). Don’t be fooled by the clear soup—though it may look bland, it has a savoury and rich flavour that’s the result of simmering beef meat and bones for countless hours before serving. 

For sharing, get the Chilli Oil Dumplings ($6.50) AKA hong you chao shou. These dumplings consist of a thick pork filling drenched in chilli oil—a truly addictive combination

Opening hours: Daily 10:15am to 9:15pm

2. Jiak Mee


Located in the same coffee shop as Shi Xiang Ge is
Jiak Mee, a relatively new eatery owned by three Gen Zs. They serve hand-made noodles such as mee hoon kueh, ban mian, ee mian and more. Try their Dry Mee Hoon Kueh ($5.30) which comes with mani cai, minced pork, poached egg, anchovies, and shallots, as well as a dark, savoury sauce doused over the chewy noodles. If you’re a spicy food lover, add their house-made chilli sauce for a fiery kick! They also have sides such as Crispy Luncheon Meat ($6) and Fried Chicken Cutlet ($6) to zhng up your meal!
