Tucked away in a kopitiam, Golden Rooster serves delicious Western food. One of their bestsellers is the Half BBQ Chicken With Rice ($5.30).

Sun Lok Noodle House specialises in Cantonese cuisine. Though both the taste of their Congee in Lychee Boat Style ($6+) and Stewed Beef Brisket Noodle ($6+) are pleasing to the taste buds, it’s their Fried Hor Fun with Beef & Black Bean Sauce ($8+) that makes me go back for more. It is drenched in piping hot black bean gravy that complements the ingredients well. As I slurped up the slippery hor fun, my taste buds were hit with strong wok hei, as though each strand of noodle had been touched by the breath of the wok.

4. Jit It Thai San Popiah

Clementi Food - Jit It Thai San Popiah

Whenever Clementi food is mentioned, Jit It Thai San Popiah comes to mind immediately. The popiah ($1.70) is made up of two layers of popiah skin. Garlicky chilli sauce is evenly spread over them, and it is followed by a crunchy layer of thinly sliced vegetables. There is always a long queue for this stall, but patience is a virtue! The wait will all be worth it once you get a taste of this roll of savoury goodness.

The cheese toasts come in a variety of flavours such as Original, Chocolate, Charcoal. Each sets you back $3.80. The exterior of the toast is crispy, while the interior is fluffy, making it easy for customers to break the bread apart to squeal over the lengthy stretch of white cheese.

Prata Alley is a hipster prata cafe that serves up a variety of unique prata flavours. The Big One ($12.90) is a fusion of pizza and prata. It is topped with chicken pepperoni, red hot chilli pepper, fresh basil, mozzarella cheese, and a drizzle of olive oil. When I cut it apart, I was surprised that the inside was stuffed with ingredients such as mushrooms, minced chicken, pineapple, and Bolognese sauce! Besides that, they also have Murtabak Maggie – Maggi mee wrapped in prata skin. It comes in four huge pieces at $6! As it tastes average on its own, dip it into the fish curry provided to give it more flavour.
