#2 – Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak
Journey to the west for this stall in Boon Lay. The rice here is good enough to have alone with their sweet and spicy sambal — served warm, with the perfect amount of moisture. However, the Nasi Lemak Chicken Set ($3.50) elevates the basics with a chunky, juicy chicken wing fried to a delightful golden-brown, a fried egg with an oozy yolk and anchovies. If you’re feeling peckish, add a begedil ($0.50) or otah ($1.50). (Burpple Guides from Burpple)
- Nasi Lemak Chicken Set (Price $4)
- Chicken Wing(Price $2)
- Egg (Price $0.50)
- Sambal Sotong (Price $$3.50 )

#3 – Chong Pang Huat Chicken Wings
There are a few outlets and Chong Pang Huat serves BBQ Chicken Wings, Satay and Spring Chicken. The BBQ chicken wings is price at $1.30 and I love the texture of the skin and once you bite the juices oozes out and bite out the meat of the chicken wings. Yum Yum and shiokness. The lime also a good sauce to spice up the taste and together with the chili. Each person is never enough with only 2 pieces of BBQ chicken wings. (holiao.la)
- Spring Chicken (Price $17.60)
- Chicken Wing(4 pcs)(Price $9.9)

#4 – Ho Huat Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee
It s one of the most inexpensive truffle-infused dishes you can purchase; I am confident that truffle carrot cake is a must-try menu item for all my fellow supporters of truffle on anything. If you are in the mood for feasting, choose the Hokkien Prawn Mee, which will cost you S$4.50 or S$5.50 for one plate.
- Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee (Price $5)

#5 – Lin Ji Yu Tang Yu Zhou
The soup had an inviting smell of coriander and tasted fairly prominent of fish sauce. In comparison, I also enjoyed that the soup wasn’t peppery. The fish slices were soft and tasted as if marinated.
- Fish Porridge (Price $5/$6)
- Sliced Fish Bee Hoon (Price $5/$6)
- Fish Head Soup (Price $6/$8)
- Red Grouper Fish Head Soup (Price $10/$12)
#6 – Xin Sheng Gor Hiong Prawn Cracker
The original outlet in Boon Lay has been serving the dish for over 70 years, and the well-organised menu with pictures has clear prices stated. Quality is pretty good, especially when eaten hot and freshly fried. Taking pride in their generous, chunky portions of handmade ingredients that are served less oily, the 3rd-gen owners tried opening several more locations, but only 2 stalls remain today. What I like here is the thick tender 5 spice roll, with its meaty savoury sweet salty flavour. And the crispy disc-shaped prawn cracker fritters with a light shattering crunch and lovely savoury shrimpy sweet flavour. The other ingredients have that similarly nostalgic, old-school taste. Yes, I did travel out of the way just to eat this… thrice. (Ivan Teh from Burpple)
- Ngoh Hiang Prawn Crackers (Price $8.8)
- Ngoh Hiong(Price $1.30)
- Bee Hoon (Price $1)

#8 – Lian Yi BBQ Seafood
Introduction: This is probably one of the best sambal stingrays that I have tried, because of its incredible smokiness. Their sambal do pack a punch, but is really rich. Do get avocado juice from a nearby drink stall to cool the spice! (Jason Ng from Burpple)

#9 – Heng Huat Boon Lay Boneless Duck Noodles
Came here multiple time for this but they usually sold out before 9.30am. Slightly luckier today as they are still open but the duck are all gone, left with braised pork belly. No Duck, Pork Belly also ok lah. Lucky I decided to get it as their braised pork belly is one or the best I have tried.Cannot imagine such chunky slices of pork belly can be so tender that melts in your mouth.

#10 – Boon Lay Satay
Introduction: The BEST satay in Singapore is boon lay satay (01-150) at boon lay place market and food village! Was introduced to this stall years ago and i the eastie fell in loveeeeee with it! It is my must buy food whenever at boon lay market! The wait for it is always at least 30mins-1 hour super duper long! At 60 cents a piece, it is affordable and it has a huge portion of chicken meat! I like how there is noooo fats in the chicken satay! It is also very juicy, tender and soft! Their bbq skills is also good and their satay is only less than 10% chaotah.
Having raved so much about it, my parents had waited a super long time for me to dabao it back from boon lay all the way to the east! But alas, when it is dabao-ed and endured a 45mins journey; the satay wasnt as juicy and soft as how i remember it to be. So if you want to taste it at perfection, recommend to dine in instead of takeaway! (Spoons of Delight from Burpple)
