Pasir Ris food guide

I used to live in Pasir Ris when I was younger, and I always think back to this neighbourhood fondly. Although I practically live at the other end of the country now, rediscovering Pasir Ris food scene always makes me want to move back there. Without further ado, here’s a list of the best Pasir Ris food places I’ve gathered that will make your stomach growl.

1. The Basil Inn

I consider it mandatory to hunt down the best Thai eatery in every neighbourhood I scour for good eats–which is why I’m so glad to have found The Basil Inn! Some people have even compared this place to Nakhon, in terms of its taste and pocket-friendly prices. A plate of Phad Thai ($8.50) is served deliciously stir-fried and fresh off the wok. You must try their Tom Yum Goong (from $13), with its sour hints of lemongrass and tongue-numbing spices.

2.  Wild Olives

For affordable Western eats and pasta, swing by the highly-rated Wild Olives. The hawker stall at Pasir Ris Central has been serving up hearty portions of Western mains, largely under $10! We loved their Grilled Chicken with Mushroom Sauce ($6.60), which comes with your choice of two sides, from their Signature Mushroom Rice to Grilled Herbs Potatoes. If you’re looking to splurge, the NZ Sirloin Steak ($12.90) is worth the order!

3. Buey Tahan See-Food

Buey Tahan See-Food is a well-known halal seafood and zi char restaurant. While they have several outlets islandwide, their Pasir Ris joint is worth the trek to the East for its unique interiors. Located in Downtown East, the restaurant is styled to look like a void deck, with a mama shop counter where diners can order dessert!

Definitely try their Chapalang Seafood Bag ($178), which comprises 1kg of Sri Lankan crabs, 900g of crayfish, and 800g each of Boston lobsters, prawns, clams, mussels, potatoes and corn if you’re dining in a group. Pair that with some of their homely main dishes, including the Golden Chicken Cubes (from $12), where chicken bits are coated in a moreish salted egg sauce, and their piquant Assam Fish Head ($24).

Winner of MasterChef Singapore 2021, Derek Cheong, has decided to go down the hawker path with his venture, GOPIZZA. The Pasir Ris Hawker Centre stall is a franchise of the Korean pizza brand, but is cheekily subtitled, “Indian Edition”, as they have a fair few Indian fusion pizzas on the menu. Prices start at $6 for an American Cheese Pizza, but you definitely want to try some of the house signatures, including the spiced Chicken Tikka Pizza ($10.90), and the vegetarian-friendly Palak Paneer Pizza ($10.90).
