10th April 2023

Best Bukit Panjang food

As an Eastie myself, the West is not an area I’d frequently visit. Recently, though, on my hunt for more food places to check out, I realised that Bukit Panjang in the West has plenty of delicious grub to offer. This motivated me to put together this list of 12 Bukit Panjang food gems to check out if you’re in the area! 

1. Tongue Tip Lanzhou Beef Noodles


If there’s one dish I can never get tired of, it’s beef noodles. One restaurant that serves up an exceptional bowl of this dish is Tongue Tip Lanzhou Beef Noodles. Like its name suggests, this restaurant specialises in Lanzhou ramen, characterised by hand-pulled noodles made from scratch. Best of all, this restaurant is also halal-certified! 

Come for the Signature Beef Noodles ($12.90++), which features chewy noodles and tender slices of beef in a flavourful beef broth. You also get to choose the type of noodle thickness with options such as Normal, Thick, Triangle, and Flat. For those who love a spicy kick, there’s the Mala Spicy Beef Noodles ($12.90++) as well.

2. Shi Hui Yian 


Next on the list is Shi Hui Yuan, a hawker stall known for their Michelin-approved hor fun. Fans of this eatery will be glad to know that they’ve recently opened their fourth outlet at the new Senja Hawker Centre

We recommend going for the Blissful Set ($7.80), an all-in-one plate of hor fun comprising roasted duck meat, chicken, spare ribs, half a braised egg, mushrooms and bok choy in a savoury and collagen-rich gravy. If you prefer sticking to just one type of meat, go for the Braised Chicken Hor Fun ($5.40), where you’ll score yourself plenty of chopped chicken breast atop silky and springy hor fun noodles.

Despite selling just noodles and porridge, the stall attracts throngs of people looking to fill their tummies with the hearty fare. Popular items include Pork Koka Noodles ($4) and Tom Yum Koka Noodles ($4.50). The bowls of noodles come intensely flavoured, with generous portions of vegetables, pork, minced meat, and large slices of pig’s liver.
