Most Toa Payoh foodies will surely be familiar with Lai Heng Economical Mixed Veg Rice, a cai png stall in Kim Keat Palm Market & Food Centre that draws consistent long queues. The reason for the stall’s popularity is simple: the food has managed to retain its super affordable prices and charming home-cooked flavours over the years.

But exactly how affordable is Lai Heng’s fare? Well, the cheapest plate of cai png here—which consists of one meat and one vegetable dish—will set you back just $2.10. For two meats and one vegetable, you’ll just need to pay $2.70.

In an age where cai png with no more than three dishes can cost upwards of $4, Lai Heng’s prices are super value-for-money. We hear that portions are also quite generous, which is amazing considering that “shrinkflation” is quite the widespread phenomenon.

Some popular dishes at Lai Heng include fried chicken wings, sweet and sour pork, and scrambled eggs. Due to the remarkably low prices of these dishes, you can afford to order more than your typical amount at cai png stalls, ensuring you enjoy a satisfying and nutritious meal.

The only downside of this stall is the fact that it is not the most accessible. You’ll need to walk about 20 minutes from Toa Payoh MRT Station, or take a five-minute bus ride, in order to reach Kim Keat Palm Market & Food Centre.
