If you’re craving a snack at 10:00 pm, head to Block 75 Lorong 5 Toa Payoh Food Centre. This small hawker center has a selection of amazing food for you to choose from. Here are some popular and well-reviewed stalls at Blk 75 Lorong 5 Toa Payoh Food Centre to check out!

Toa Payoh Lorong 5 Food Centre

#1 – Da Ji Hainanese Chicken Rice

Introduction: Da Ji Hainanese Chicken Rice is located at Toa Payoh Lorong 5 Food Centre and is a popular dinner spot among the Toa Payoh residents. Don’t be surprised by the long queue but rather when there isn’t one! The stall is run by a two-man team, where the lady boss is the queen of multi-tasking! She takes the orders, scoops the rice onto the plate, and is the only one frying the chicken wings! That’s pretty impressive if you ask me!

For a more substantial meal, order the Famous Fried Chicken WIng RIce ($3.30) for some carbs to fill you up! The fried chicken wings definitely do not disappoint! Fried to a crispy golden brown, the chicken is seasoned well and every bite explodes with flavour! On top of that, the chicken is cooked well, making the meat tender and extremely juicy! To help ease the guilt some might feel from eating greasy food, the chicken is not oily at all! Time for less worrying and more eating!

Just when you thought the dish couldn’t get any tastier, be sure to dip the chicken wing into the addictive chilli sauce! Elevating the flavours of the wings, the chilli also gives it a nice spicy kick! If you can’t get enough of the chicken wings, which I’m pretty certain of, you can add them to your dish for $1.40 each! Definitely a must-try!

Menu Items:

  • Chicken Rice ($3.50)
  • Fried Chicken Wing Rice ($3.30)

Location: 75 Lorong 5 Toa Payoh #01-31 Blk 75 Lorong 5 Toa Payoh Food Centre Singapore 310075

#4 – Song Kee Kway Teow Noodle Soup

Introduction: This particular stall has been around for about 16 years in this food centre. The option on menu is straightforward, the dry one at $3.50 or $4.50 and the soup at $3.50. They used to serve fish dumplings but no longer do so now. I ordered the $4.50 portion, opted to go with kway teow and requested for an extra amount of chilli to be added. It consists of a piece of tau pok stuffed with fish paste, meatball, fishballs, and slices of fishcake.

Menu Items:

  • Mee Pok Dry ($4.00 – $5.00)
  • Kway Teow Noodle Soup ($3.80 – $5.00)

#5 – Sweet Heart Dessert

Introduction: A friend recommended the Sardine Puff and Curry Puff from a dessert stall at Toa Payoh Lorong 5 Food Centre. He did not recommend any of those desserts on the menu but just the puffs. I was there at about 1 pm on a Friday but the Sardine Puff have already sold out, left with the Potato Puff and Fried Popiah. The homemade Curry Puff and Sardine Puff are 3 pieces for $2, the homemade Popiah is $1 each. I was asked to self-service when the lady noticed me. I took 3 Potato Puffs and 1 Popiah for $3.00. The same friend mentioned that Sardine Puff is actually much better. My dining companion took a bite of the Sardine Puff and said, “I still prefer the Potato Puff a bit more. The puff is value for money though, it is packed with sardine filling. I do not think you can get another at this price elsewhere.” I actually liked the Sardine Puff though, the filling was generous with a very mild spiciness, which is nice.

Menu Items:

  • Curry Puff and (3 pieces for $2.00)
  • Sardine Puff (3 pieces for $2.00)
  • Homemade Popiah ($1.00 each)
  • Sweet Potato Soup ($1.50)

Location: Blk 75 Toa Payoh Lor 5 Hawker Centre #01-06 Singapore

Opening Hours: Monday: Closed / Tuesday-Sunday: 12pm-12am

#6 – Soi 555 Thai Kway Chap

Introduction: Was being tipped off about this other Thai Kway Chap at Blk 75 Lorong 5 Toa Payoh Hawker Centre the other day when I had posted about Hanuman Thai Kway Chap; apparently Soi 555 Thai Kway Chap is also relatively new stall which had sprouted up slightly before the Circuit Breaker and serves only Thai Kway Chap in two different sizes (i.e. no sides)

Opted for the large bowl; both the small and large bowls come pretty much with the same condiments — roasted pork, boiled pork, pork balls and pig skin and an array of innards, though the large variant comes with more of each condiment in a bigger bowl of Kway Chap. The variant here reminds me of the Thai Kway Chap served at Yaowarat Thai Kway Chap at Kovan/Holland Village more than the one that I have had recently at Hanuman Thai Kway Chap — the broth significantly more on the peppery side; adding the Thai chili flakes will provide the broth with an extra kick of spiciness that burns the tongue even for those who have higher tolerance of spiciness, but oh-so-shiok. Coming with the rolled rice noodles typical of Thai Kway Chap, it’s easy to have and pretty fun to slurp on with the slippery rice noodles sometimes trapping the broth for more flavour. The variety of condiments were pretty decent overall; the deep-fried pork belly still maintaining its crispness while the other elements did not carry a porky stench and were pretty well-cleaned — the pig skin being almost jelly-like while the pork balls gave a bouncy bite amidst all the other meaty elements in the entire bowl. Dip the meaty elements into the accompanying chili dip available on the side at the stall for a spicy tang almost akin to that of the chili usually served with our local oyster omelette; absolutely on-point that cuts through all of that meatiness.

Pretty difficult for me to comment on the authenticity of the variant here considering I have never had the actual version from Thailand before, but Soi 555 Thai Kway Chap does make for a good alternative for Yaowarat Thai Kway Chap especially for those living around the area considering how they are pretty much comparable to one another.

Menu Items:

  • Thai Kway Chap ($5.00 – $10.00)

Location: 75 Lorong 5 Toa Payoh #01-26 Blk 75 Lorong 5 Toa Payoh Food Centre Singapore 310075

#7 – Mei Ji Rojak

Introduction: Mei ji Rojak is one of the popular food stalls in the neighborhood, remaining open late at the food center along Toa Payoh Lorong 5. Nighttime eatery is popular for its ball noodles, ban mian, fried kway teow, and Mei ji Rojak, which has a devoted fan base as well.

Menu Items:

  • Rojak ($3.50 / $5.00 / $8.00)

Location: 75 Lor 5 Toa Payoh, Lorong 5, #01-04 Food Centre, 310075

#8 – Toa Payoh Hot Plate BBQ Fish

Introduction: Onion, more onions and even more onions. That’s the first thing you will definitely notice about the bbq seafood from Toa Payoh Hot Plate BBQ Fish.

We love that their sotong is fresh, juicy and tender and their stingray is thick and fleshy. The sambal sauce for both dishes is fragrant and packs a nice spicy kick. It is a little on the salty side tbh and best inhaled with spoonfuls of rice. That said, I love the big heap of caramelised onions that come with both dishes.

At $15 for a large portion, both dishes are definitely value for money!

Menu Items:

  • Sambal Kang Kong ($7.00 – $10.00)
  • Stingray ($12.00 / $15.00 / $18.00)
  • BBQ Sotong ($12.00 / $15.00 / $18.00)
  • Crayfish ($12.00 / $20.00)
  • Lala ($10.00 / $12.00 / $15.00)

Location: 75 Lor. 5 Toa Payoh, #01-27, Singapore 310075

#9 – Chaoyang Prawn Noodle

Introduction: A number of stalls at the Toa Payoh Lorong 5 Food Centre stay open late, remaining open past midnight. Make a decision to try Chaoyang Prawn Noodle, which operates until 1am, as a delicious food alternative. I advised the pork rib prawn noodles, which consist of chunks of tender pork ribs and pork slices, as well as 5 small prawns and bean sprouts.

Menu Items:

  • Prawn Noodle ($4.00-5.00)
  • Pork Rib Noodle ($4.00)
  • Pork Rib Prawn Noodle ($5.00)
  • Pig Tail Noodle ($4.00)
  • Pacific Clam Prawn Noodle ($6.00)

Location: Toa Payoh Lor 5 Blk 75 Food Centre #01-15 Singapore, Singapore 310075

Opening Hours: Monday & Sunday: Closed / Tuesday – Saturday: 5pm-11pm

#10 – He Jia Huan Ban Mian Mee Hoon Kway

Introduction: Prices might have gone up, but the texture of the Dry Ban Mian (S$4.00) remained smooth and springy. Coupled with dark sauce and a little soup, the taste of the dry noodles was not too salty, just nice with a good portion of minced and sliced meat.

Regardless of the time of my visits, I did not remember seeing zero queue in front of this stall. The soup today tasted a little more peppery than before, but I supposed it was still apt for cool nights and good suppers.

Menu Items:

  • Mee Hoon Kway Dry/Soup ($3.50)
  • Ban Mee Meatball Dry/Soup ($4.00)
  • U-Mee Abalone Clams Dry/Soup ($5.00)
  • Mee Hoon Kway Prawn Dry/Soup ($5.00)
  • Sliced Clams Ban-Mian Dry/Soup ($6.00)
  • Specialty U-Mee Dry/Soup ($8.50)

Location: 75 Lor. 5 Toa Payoh, #01-14, Singapore 310075
