Top 10 Best Eats at Empress Food Centre

Empress Food Place is commonly called Farrer Road Food Centre as it is situated opposite Farrer Road, just before Holland Road. It is nestled in the residential estate of Queen’s Road and next to the Farrer Road MRT. Hawker food is very reasonably priced here. Here’s our top few picks!

Empress Food Centre

#1 – Happy World Roast

Introduction: The char siew and roasted pork were really much better than usual hawker fare. Char siew was fat and tender, some of my pieces could be considered near to being ‘melt in your mouth’. Roasted pork had crispy crackling skin. However for 2 portions of this plus hubby ordered an extra chicken cutlet, it was priced at around 12 so basically about 6 for each set. The bean curd skin was the one that had the most generous serving! May not queue again if the queue is long. (Xying Lee from Burple)

Menu Items: $5/pax

  • Crispy Chicken Hor Fun
  • Char Siew Wanton Noodle
  • Hainan Chicken Rice
  • Roasted Pork Belly Rice

Location: 7 Empress Rd, #01-107, Singapore 260007

Opening Hour: Mon to Sun 10am-4pm (Daily)

#2 – Ah Wing’s Wanton Mee

The long line is due to the traditional method of making every last noodle in the wanton mee-made plate-by-plate. In partnership with a dynamic duo, Ah Wing makes noodles plates by plates quickly and diligently, and aunty works rapidly as well, so that people can enjoy their delicious noodles.

Menu Items: $5/pax

#3 – Farrer Road Chicken Rice

Introduction: Another popular stall at Empress Market with non stop queue and usually sold out before lunch time. White (Steamed) Chicken is usually my choice but it was sold out when I am there before 11am. The Roasted Chicken is not really my type as I feel that it’s not that juicy and tender, however, their rice is worth to mention. Typically, Chicken Rice can be quite oily but u don’t see there is much oil yet it’s fragrant. (Joe Yang from Burple)

Menu Items: $3-$5

  • Char Siew Wanton Noodles
  • Shredded Chicken and Prawns Noodles

Introduction: The noodles are bouncy, QQ, and has a good bite. It is well-savoured, tasty but not over-salted, and provides excellent amounts of ingredients including ikan bilis.
