Introduction: The old-school neon signboard at Xiao Gang Western Food is filled with classic western dishes like pork chop, nuggets, European sausages, and chicken wings. While most of the dishes come with sides like coleslaw, baked beans and fries, you can also opt for spaghetti or rice.. The cooked spaghetti noodles include a homemade tomato sauce and are mixed into it, making something similar to something my mother would make at home. The chicken cutlet is a thin but juicy piece of meat with a thicker skin. While it was tasty, it could have used an even thinner layer of batter.

#5 – New Market Teochew Braised Duck Rice

Introduction: Run by a married couple, this food stall specializes in braised ducks but they offer a wide range of other dishes, such as braised pork, braised pig’s intestinal tubes, braised tau kwa, braised hard-boiled egg, and the like. The chef had impressive knifing skills as each piece of duck meat were deboned and thinly sliced to a uniformed thickness with all the skin accounted for. Texture wise, they were a little too coarse which made the duck less refined for a pleasant bite. If only they were more tender however, the portion of meat given is good for the price.

  • Duck Rice ($4.00/ $6.00)
  • Intestine ($3.00/ $6.00)

#6 – Dover Road Kai Kee Wanton Noodle

Introduction: The menu on the menu included Satay Moo, Pork Stew, Light Soup, Satay Mee, Fried Noodles, and Chinese Fried Rice. The fried dumplings tasted about the same but bigger in size. We  did not enjoy the slice of char siew, which was lean and slightly dry. The noodles retained their springiness, and in the taste of the oyster sauce, sesame oil, lard oil, and chili was made.

Menu Items:

  • Wanton Mee ($3/ $3.50)

#7 – Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei Claypot Laksa

Introduction: We chose thick bee hoon as our choice of noodles for this bowl of laksa from Zehn Shan Mei Claypot Laksa, and is unquestionably our top choice overall. The smooth texture and mouth feel of slippery bee hoon made it more comfortable and much easier to slurp up when compared to yellow rice noodles.

Menu Items:

  • Claypot Laksa ($4.00/ $5.00/ $6.00)

#10 – Old Punggol Satay

Introduction: Old Punggol Satay really shouldn’t be rated so highly. Its chicken satay is very tender, but the flavour and texture aren’t great, and it barely doesn’t grill the chicken. The pork satay is really much better—and there is more of that fatty pork. The satay sauce tastes average, too.

Menu Items:

  • Chicken/ Pork/ Mutton Satay ($0.60/ stick)
