Yishun food is bound to get you drooling
I’m always green with envy whenever my friends tell me they’re eating at Yishun. I live terribly far away, so it’s always for a special occasion that I find the time to head on down for a meal. And boy, do the food never disappoint! Here are some of my favourite Yishun food places which get me travelling down the red line for.
1. Pizza Maru

The Koreans are known for combining savoury with sweet, and here at Pizza Maru, they have done the same to their pizzas. Get your tastebuds prepped for a world of flavours – the ingredients which go into making these pizzas are vast and diverse. Take the crusts, for instance, which are made with green tea and black rice dough, and contain healthy grains including barley and flaxseed. A favourite of ours is their Real BBQ Chicago ($26.80++), which is topped with chicken, BBQ sauce, icing sugar, almond flakes, honey and more!

2. Yap’s Noodles
The curry noodles at Yap’s Noodles are not to be missed! Served in a hawker stall, you’ll hardly believe your eyes as you take in the amount and variety of ingredients included. Try their Curry Seafood Roasted Pork Noodles ($6.50). It contains two large prawns, a scattering of clams, chunks of roasted pork and some tau pok. The soup tastes a little velvety, similar to laksa, minus the strong flavour of coconut milk. You can also opt for an add-on of Cheese for $1, which richens the broth considerably.

3. Long Jiang Chinos
If you love seafood, you’ll fall head over heels in love with Long Jiang Chinos. This Chinese restaurant specialises in them, and offers over 100 different dishes. Come with a large group of family or friends and share their Seafood Hot Pot ($128++); a huge steaming pot filled with clams, prawns, squid and a whole soon hock fish. Another interesting dish to try is the Cheesy Crab Beehoon with Crab Roe ($44.80++), which contains bee hoon and two crabs soaking in a rich and cheesy yellow broth.

4. Hai Xian Zhu Zhou
It’s hard not to like instant noodles. The ke kou mian at Hai Xian Zhu Zhou is in a whole other league! You can choose between different flavoured broths such as pork, seafood and tom yum. Either way, all soup bases are bursting with umami. A recommended dish is their Pork Koka Noodles ($3), which is both affordable and hearty. Do come early if you’re keen on giving this place a try; the queues during lunch hours can get pretty intense!

6. Ah Tan Wings
There’s no way you should miss out on Ah Tan Wings’ mouthwateringly crispy and rich har cheong gai when you’re at Yishun.

There are only three main dishes on the menu – Atas Wing Meal ($5.20), Atas Cutlet Meal ($6.50) and Basic Wing Meal($3.50). The Atas Wing Meal will definitely fill up hungry souls.

Yishun food in abundance
The sheer amount of stores in Northpoint City alone provide you with more than enough options when you’re looking for good Yishun food. If you live far away from Yishun like me, I say it’s definitely worth the time and distance to travel down for a hearty meal.
