Bukit Timah Food Centre

#1 – Sin Chew Satay Bee Hoon

Introduction:

Sin Chew Satay Hoon has been around considering that 1956, with Mr Tay’s dad very first offering their famed dish on the streets of Bukit Timah. Fun reality, their satay bee hoon was actually made on accident! The household formerly marketed fishball noodles however switched over to satay bee hoon after a member of the family earned satay and also there were leftovers. In order not to squander the food, they blended the satay sauce with bee hoon as well as realised it tasted really excellent with each other!

#2 – Chin Hock Mutton Soup

Introduction:

Having served up Mutton Soup ($5) for several decades, this stall is an institution in Bukit Timah Food Market & Food Centre, and worth a visit, especially on cold, dreary days. According to Burpple Tastemaker Fabian Poon, who has been patronizing the stall since he was a young boy, Chin Hock uses pure Chinese herbs in the soup and licorice root for a sweet finish, unlike many places that use rock sugar. The result is a well-balanced herbal soup that’s easy to drink, yet helps to tame the gaminess of the fork-tender mutton.

Menu Items:

  • Mutton Tendon + Stomach + Rib Soup (Price $6.00/ $8.00)
  • Mutton Rib Soup (Price $5.00/ $6.00/ $8.00)
  • Mutton Meat Ball Soup (Price $4.00/ $5.00)
  • Mui Choy (Price $1.00)

#3 – He Zhong Carrot Cake

Introduction:

Specialising in only the white version, their rendition features symmetrical cut squares of deliciousness. The family-run stall by Teo Boon Kuang has been serving since 1973, and daughter Alberta Teo has come on to carry on the legacy.
. Their carrot cake is soft and moist, marinated in garlic and fish sauce, the egg covering each side and holding it all together, almost like a pancake. Nicely springy with crisp edges, and lovely savoury sweet eggy salty flavour, with a bit of spicy kick. These chunky blocks of radish cubes are cooked with a generous amount of chai poh that gives some sweetness that complements the savouriness. It is well charred to a crispy exterior with chilli that was smeared while the interior is firm and soft with flavours coming from the egg, chye poh and garlic.

Menu Items:

  • Carrot Cake (Price $2.50/ $3.00/ $4.00/ $5.00)

#4 – 133 Penang Authentic

Introduction:

The portion at $3.50 came with a good portion of yellow noodles along with a few slices of fish cake and lean meat with 2 pieces of prawns and some greens, garnished with a handful of dried shallots and fried pork lards. Though with extra amount of chilli added, it did not taste as spicy as i would like it to be. Its overall taste was just average and not quite memorable. Their Penang Prawn Noodle might actually be a better option since this is what they are supposedly famous for.

Menu Items:

  • Penang Char Koay Teow (Price $7.90)
  • Penang Prawn Noodle (Price $7.90)
  • Tender Pork Ribs Prawn (Price $8.50)

#5 – Xie Kee Hokkien Mee

Introduction:

Another hidden gem in the bukit timah food centre! This was their first time trying hokkien mee fried using the flat noodles instead of the usual yellow noodles, which was probably the reason why it leaves an impression on customers! $4 and up for a plate of fried hokkien mee with a reasonable amount of prawns and sotongs. Before he scoops up a plate for you, the stall owner uncle would first add in a ladle of the soup stock. We could also taste the burst of flavors with the strong wok hei as the noodles seemed to have absorbed the soup stock really well!

Menu Items:

  • Hokkien Mee (Price $3.00/ $5.00)

Location: 51 Upper Bukit Timah Rd, #02-174, Singapore 588215

Operating Hours: Daily 7am – 10pm

#6 – Living Wholesome Vegetarian Food

Introduction:

When we talk about Lei Cha Fan, the first thing that comes to your mind would probably be the green (tea) soup that is served with your rice. The soup from this stall is light, clean, and easy on the palate. Most of the time, the bowl of Lei Cha Fan itself is slightly plain, but this stall’s Brown rice Lei Cha rice was simply delicious. Being a Chinese vegetarian stall, the vegetables are usually fried without garlic and onion. One would expect the flavors to be (slightly) bland. Nope. It is one of the most wonderfully flavored rice we have tried. They don’t use msg btw. The brown rice has a wonderful aroma from the assortment of aromatic herbs/ spices like lemongrass, ginger etc it was cooked with. It goes very well with the array of vegetables! So, order the brown rice!

Menu Items:

  • Thunder Tea Brown Rice Set (Price $6.00/ $8.00)
  • Thunder Tea Brown Bee Hoon Set (Price $5.00/ $7.00)
  • Vegetarian Bee Hoon (Price $3.00)

#7 – Yong Seng Satay

Introduction:

The satay skewers are all extremely nicely barbequed with a light crisp outdoors and damp meat inside. The chicken satay is soft and also moist with good flavors. The pork satay is meaty as well as pleasant sampling with an item of a perfectly grilled fatty little bit in between. As for the mutton satay, it is meaty as well as crunchy with wonderful smokey flavors as well as a color of pleasant. Not gamey either.

The satay sauce is thick and also consists of pieces of grated peanuts. It is nutty and a little bit spicy. Comes topped with pineapple puree. Preferences good. Personally, they such as the pork satay below. It is truly great with well-smoked crispy meaty little bits and the fatty little bits are especially great. The chicken and also mutton ones are nice too. Thumbs up!

Menu Items:

  • Chicken & Pork Satay (Price $0.70 per stick)

Location: 51 Upper Bukit Timah Rd, #02-123, Singapore 588215

Operating Hours: Daily 11.30am – 8pm

#8 – Leng Kee

Introduction:

The best thing about this is the light, clear and flavourful soup. There’s no milk and it doesn’t taste like there’s MSG in it, it’s just naturally tasty. There’s a good amount of smooth batang fish – the fish isn’t spectacular but it’s good enough to satisfy any fish soup cravings. The fish soup here just tastes naturally sweet and I think even completely MSG-less. The braised beancurd skin with taupok and egg is their fav here – every ingredient has been braised for a sufficiently long enough time that all the goodness from the sauce has been soaked up. The portion is super awesome as well as uncle doesn’t scrimp on the ingredients at all.

Menu Items:

  • Seafood Soup (Price $5 onwards
  • Pig’s Liver Mee Sua (Price $4. onwards)
  • Fish Head Soup (Price $5 onwards)
  • Fish Porridge (Price $4.50 onwards)

#9 – Zhong Zhong Fine Spice

Introduction:

Break the shrimp cracker and dip the light crisps in the old school, gooey pink sauce of sugary sweet. Crisp cuttlefish, browned and stuffed, effuses a sinfully addictive fried fragrance. The orange cake rendition tasting lighter, is a soft, bouncy contrast. Dip a piece in zesty chilli, topped with the crunch of chopped onions and toasted ground peanuts to richen with spicy-sweetness. Pick up a slice of fish patty. Fried batter coats small fish chunks with mushy flour, delectably seasoned. Biting into a piece of ngoh hiang (meat roll), the crisp tofu skin flakes apart as you sink into densely packed juicy spiced and seasoned pork, subtly sweet. Soft fried tofu comes as a pleasantly light-flavoured contrast.

Menu Items:

  • Five Spice (Price $5 onwards)
  • Ngoh Hiang (Price $5 onwards)
  • Prawn Cake (Price $5 onwards)

Location: 51 Upper Bukit Timah Rd, #02-149, Singapore 588215
