Sari Bistari Changi Village Famous Nasi Ayam Penyet might sound like a mouthful, but a mouthful of their titular dish will speak for itself. Their Nasi Ayam Penyet ($4) comes with a plate of fragrant chicken rice, soup, and─the star of the show─a large piece of deep-fried chicken thigh. The crispy skin perfectly complements the tender, juicy chicken meat within. Fans of spicy food will also enjoy the addictive dark belacan that is served on the side.

For a dish that will soothe the soul and the stomach, head to Woon Woon Pek Beehoon. They may be famous for their impressive Giant White Beehoon ($35), but their regular portions are just as satisfying for an everyday meal.
Their Lala Slice Fish White Beehoon ($5) stars a generous serving of white beehoon that has been cooked in a rich, seafood stock. The stewed cabbage, clams and sliced fish add even more sweetness to this otherwise savoury dish. Each plate comes topped with deep-fried pork lard for extra crunch.
