Check out these Bukit Batok food places
When I was in junior college, Bukit Batok was an area I often passed by during my journey to school. Throughout those two years, I came to know quite a good number of eateries housed within that area. Here are 10 Bukit Batok food gems worth checking out!
1. Ah Lipp Famous Penang Prawn Noodles
Ah Lipp Famous Penang Prawn Noodles is a small and humble stall offering grub such as Penang Hokkien Big Prawn Noodles ($10/$12) and Penang Assam Laksa ($3.50). The former’s price is justified, with its huge portion and generous variety of ingredients given. Its broth is simmered for four hours with pork bones, pork skin, prawn head, crabs, and other condiments. There is a mixture of sweet and salty flavours, before a wave of spiciness kicks in to enhance the flavour further.

2. Famous JB 101 Firewokz

Famous JB 101 Firewokz is well-loved for their signature Crab Bee Hoon (seasonal price). The broth is both milky and flavourful, and tastes similar to fish head bee hoon. Inside contains a huge amount of thick bee hoon and chopped up crab boasting fresh and fleshy meat. And of course, when it comes to Malaysian food, fried hokkien mee can never be left out! Their 101 Hokkien Fried Noodles ($5) is stir-fried till its noodles are slightly charred at the edges, giving off a distinct wok hei.

3. Milk and Honey Gelato

Get yourself the Eggs Florentine ($11.80); poached eggs, sauteed spinach, oven roasted roma tomato with thyme all seated atop donut waffles drizzled with gratinated hollandaise sauce. Don’t forget to order their Mud Ball Pie ($5.90) for dessert!

With rows of char siew displayed at the storefront, it is never easy to resist a plate of Char Siew Rice ($3) from Xiang Ji Roasted Delight. The char siew has slightly charred edges, making the sides crispy and the meat succulent. Right after your teeth sinks into the meat, the layer of fats melts in your mouth. Top up another $1 for a generous plate of their Char Siew & Roasted Pork Rice.

Ru Yi Yuan Vegetarian is a stall that has been around since I was young. Their Vegetarian Bee Hoon ($3) offers a variety of ingredients. Topped on springy bee hoon are chewy mushrooms, tasty vegetarian char siew and crunchy cabbage. Completing the dish would be a few pieces of crispy beancurd skin, which are added after a ladle of piping hot mushroom gravy has been drizzled over this plate of vegetarian goodness.

6. Ban Mian Fish Soup

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and supper – you can get them all at this 24-hour Ban Mian Fish Soup stall. Try their QQ Ramen ($3.50) – a dry version of ban mian doused in braised mushroom and minced meat sauce, but with bouncier noodles. Give their Spicy Ban Mian ($4) a shot if you are up for something fiery. Dried chilli is used to make up the dangerously red broth. The first few mouthful may seem bearable, but take a few more spoonfuls and your taste buds will start feeling the heat!
Address: Blk 632 Bukit Batok Central, Happy Hawkers, Singapore 650632

7. Master Tang Wanton Noodle

Run by an 86-year-old uncle, Master Tang Wanton Noodle first opened back in 2014 after the owner, Master Tang, retired from his job of 17 years as a chef trainer at Crystal Jade. His Beef Brisket Noodle ($6) is one of most well-received dishes. Stewed until they are rich in flavour and tender in texture, the beef slices and tendons disintegrate and melt in your mouth as you savour them with satisfaction.

Opening hours: Daily 8am to 3pm
8. Fatty Weng

For $3.50, you can get yourself a bowl of piping hot Fish Soup containing plenty of smooth sliced fish drowned in a clear and flavourful broth. What helped this stall gained its loyal following is its Fried Oyster Egg ($3.50), where the outside is fried till crisp brown, while the inside remains soft and holds a good number of fresh oysters.
