1. Meng Kee Seafood

I didn’t think much of Meng’s Kee Seafood’s Salt Baked Crab (from $40), but my auntie and uncle complemented this dish so much that I finally decided to give it a try. Though the dish is simple, I have to say that the crabs here are absolutely fresh. Juice streams down your arm as you savour the solid crab meat. The size of the crab is also something worth talking about. Underneath the shell is a chunk of crab meat waiting for you crab lovers to wolf it down.

2. Yusoff Haji Jalal Satay

As my uncle placed a plate of satay right in front of me, he told me how Yusoff Haji Jalal Satay was once known as “Satay Club” back when he was 10 years-old. Till this day, the flavour of their satay remains the same, and it brings back a lot of memories for him. Coming in chicken, beef, and mutton, the Satay ($0.80 per stick) is grilled till they are slightly charred on the edges. The oil-coated meat was tender and marinated well. Their rich, thick, and creamy peanut sauce is an essential dip to give the satay a boost in flavour.
Unit number: #01-21
Opening hours: Wed-Sun 6pm to 10pm
Yusoff Haji Jalal Satay is not a halal-certified eatery, but it is Muslim-owned.
3. 216 Choa Chu Kang BBQ Chicken Wings

I still remember eyes looking in my direction as I easily devoured 10 pieces of Chicken Wings ($1.40 per piece) all by myself. It was hard to stop myself from constantly grabbing the wings from 216 Choa Chu Kang BBQ Chicken Wings piece after piece. Crispy, well-marinated, tender, juicy, and smoky, these wings are truly worth every penny. Dip those flavourful pieces of chicken wings in chilli to turn up the heat!
Stall number: #01-23
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 5pm to 10:30pm
216 Choa Chu Kang Chicken Wings is not a halal-certified eatery.
4. Heng Huat Fried Kway Teow

Heng Huat Fried Kway Teow puts a “vegetable farm” on top of your Char Kway Teow (from $3). From the appearance itself, you can probably tell that this is healthier and less oily as compared to other plates of char kway teow out there. The stall owner does not use pork lard to fry this plate of goodness. Even so, this dish still brings out wok hei, along with a slightly sweet and addictive flavour. Once the noodles, bean sprouts, and hum are fried to perfection, this dish is completed with a mountain of boiled chye sim capped over the char kway teow.
Unit number: #01-36
Opening hours: Wed-Sat 11am to 8pm
Heng Huat Fried Kway Teow is not a halal-certified eatery.
5. K S Fruit Rojak

The Fruit Rojak (from $3) at K S Fruit Rojak comes with you tiao, apples, cucumber, bean sprouts, and guava, nestled below a generous amount of rojak sauce and peanuts. The fresh fruits provide sweetness and crunch to the entire dish. Unlike the crispy you tiao found at most rojak stalls, the pieces here are soft and chewy.
Unit number: #01-45
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 12:30pm to 8pm
7. Ivy’s Hainanese Herbal Mutton Soup

Ivy’s Hainanese Herbal Mutton Soup was actually one of the last stalls I wanted to eat from as I am not a fan of mutton. But I was still made to try it when my aunt ordered that for herself. After a mouthful, I immediately understood why this stall invites such a long queue at any time of the day.
In the Herbal Mutton Soup (from $13), there are lamb ribs, tau pok, black fungus, wolfberries, and spring onions. The broth was rich with herbs, giving the broth a deep flavour that’s not overwhelming on your taste buds. Also, the lamb ribs were tender and marinated till there’s no pungent smell. Customers can feel free to top up $1 to add on mee sua for a full meal.
Stall number: #01-14
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 11:30am to 8:30pm
