1. Famous JB 101

Famous JB 101 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 Stir-Fired Mee Tai Bak (from $6) star noodles that are slightly charred at the edges, giving off a distinct wok hei.

With rows of char siew displayed at the storefront, it is never easy to resist a plate of Char Siew Rice ($3.50) from Xiang Ji Roasted Delight. The char siew has slightly charred edges, making the sides crispy and the meat succulent. Right after your teeth sink 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 (from $4) 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.

4. 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, a dry version of ban mian doused in braised mushroom and minced meat sauce, but with bouncier noodles. Give their Spicy Ban Mian a shot if you are up for something fiery. Dried chilli is used to make up the dangerously red broth. The first few mouthfuls may seem bearable, but take a few more spoonfuls and your taste buds will start feeling the heat! Prices are typically under $5 a bowl.

The long queue stall is known for having high-quality chicken rice that’s a notch above the average chicken rice offerings in most local kopitiams, with fragrant, gingery rice, and tender chicken.

For legit Mediterranean food that’s also halal-certified, head down to Ela. The restaurant, located at HomeTeam NS Bukit Batok, is great for special occasion meals, date nights, or fam dinners, thanks to its gorgeous, homely interiors that nod to Grecian eateries. The menu offers grilled meats, seafood dishes, wraps, and sharing platters, so it’s great to dine in a group so everyone can have a piece of everything. We recommend their Octopus ($31.90++), char-grilled to tender ends and servd with a lemony sauce, and their Seabreeze Platter (from $69.90++), which comes with six different types of grilled seafood.
