Top 10 Best Eats at Holland Drive Food Centre

If you aren’t comfortable with the lines inside the somewhat busier Ghim Moh Food Centre nearby, check out Holland Drive Food Center. Nestled besides the low-rise HDB buildings, it has been serving hungry neighborhood customers since it was built over 20 years ago. Here’s our top 10 choices in this small Food Centre.

Best Eats at Holland Drive Food Centre

#1 – Traditional Carrot Cake

Introduction:

I have walked past this stall many times at Holland drive market but was not motivated to try because of the more greasy, chopped small pieces type of carrot cake which I didn’t quite fancy.

But was very much intrigued today when I saw that the folks were making their own carrot cake from scratch. Anything handmade has got to be good.

Asked for larger chunks of carrot cake and less grease and topped up 50 cents for an extra egg – the result was good.

Lots of piquant garlic and Chye Poh and a little spice from the chili with QQ carrot cake. You could still see little carrot shreds within the carrot cake.

Pretty outstanding.

Menu Items:

  • Traditional Handmade Carrot Cake (black/ white) Price S$5 – S$10 per pax

#2 – Ru Ji Kitchen

Introduction:

The stalls at Holland Drive are helmed by Uncle David Ng; while his daughter Joanne runs the Old Airport Road branch.

@ieatishootipost wrote that Mr. Ng learned his skills from his brother who is a fish ball noodle-seller at Ghim Moh Food Centre (which got me curious about how all these famous fishball stalls are related).

You get many Fishball Noodles in Singapore, but not many serve hand-made fishballs and fishcakes anymore, with (no offense to the factories) many serving generic-tasting ones. (So Stall A, Stall B, and Stall C are not much different, especially when even the noodle supplier is from the same few places.)

Ru Ji’s Fishball Noodle ($3.00, $4.00, $5.00) features these popular hand-made fishballs and fishcake in a light, clear broth, with dry Mee Pok or Mee Kia served separately with sambal chili, crisp pork lard, sprinkled with chopped spring onions.

Menu Items:

  • Fishball Meepok (Price $3.50)
  • Fishball Mee Pok with Meatballs (Price $3 + $1)
  • Fishball Mee Pok (Price $5)
  • Fishball Mee Pok (Price $3.50 + $1)

#3 – Cheng Heng Kway Chap and Braised Duck Rice

Introduction:

The concept of a quiet moment is quite foreign at Cheng Heng Kway Chap And Braised Duck Rice at Holland Drive Food Centre. Featured in the Michelin Guide 2018, it is busy round the clock, dishing out both Kway Chap and braised duck rice.

I suppose Kway Chap is not something appreciated by everyone, considering how the two-part Teochew dish consists of a customizable set of pig innards, pork rind, and a bowl of Kway — soy sauce broth and broad, thin sheets of rice noodles.

Only true gourmands will appreciate and enjoy the otherwise queasy notion of an animal’s “spare parts”. They’ve become quite a mandatory side dish to go with your Kway. Having Kway Chap without the pieces of braised pork offal is quite like chili crab without mantou or Hokkien mee without prawns.

Menu Items:

  • Kway Chap (Price from $5)
  • Braised Duck Rice (Price from $5)

Please kindly visit the shop for more menu and pricing information.

#4 – Yap Kee Wanton Noodles

Introduction:

Yap Kee Wanton Noodles is a family business. Richard and his wife are originally from Batu Pahat, Johor. Richard’s brother, Benn, used to own a wanton mee stall under the same name in Taman Johor Jaya. He is famous for his flying wanton mee. The couple started the business in 2003, and have made their presence known and felt in Jurong East, Bukit Gombak, Holland Drive, and Clementi. Sadly, you won’t see any flying wanton mee in Singapore but their egg noodles came from the same supplier that used to supply to the now-defunct Yap Kee in Johor Bahru.

The noodles are made using only eggs and gluten flour without the addition of water. They were cooked in hot and cold water before being tossed in the air. The egg noodles were cooked to a delightful QQ texture. They were springy and firm and were evenly coated in a housemade sauce made from lard, chili, and oil. Give the noodles a good toss and slurp them up. Confirm no alkaline taste!

Richard also roasts his own char siew. He uses fresh pork only. It was decent, with a balance of sweet and savory notes. I wish it was fattier though. There is a good amount of filling in the juicy dumplings. Each plate of wanton mee at Yap Kee Wanton Noodles starts from $3.50, and it comes with some char siew, wantons, and vegetables. Richard always recommends customers try the noodles without any seasonings like chili and black sauce. Yap Kee Wanton Noodles also serves dumplings and shredded chicken noodles

Menu Items:

  • Wanton Noodles (Price $3.50/ $4.50)
  • Dumpling Noodles (Price $4/ $5)
  • Dumpling Soup (Price $4)
  • Shredded Chicken Hor Fun (Price $3.50/ $4.50)

#5 – ROJAK LINE – The Finest Rojak

Introduction:

They believe that the Rojak paste is the soul, while quality ingredients are the backbone of the Finest Rojak. They set the bar extremely high when crafting out the Rojak paste and on deciding which ingredients to use when serving out the Rojak. They select the ingredients based on the quality of the taste, instead of serving you the ingredients based on the costing factor. The Rojak is absolutely amazing when it combines ROJAK LINE’S Finest Rojak paste with its selected ingredients.

Menu Items:

  • Luxury Rojak (Price $25)
  • Luxury Golden Set (Price $18)
  • ROJAK LINE Rojak (Price $22)
  • Golden Set, Golden Set Smooth, Tau Pok Rojak, You Tiao Rojak, Pure Fruits Veg Rojak
    • (1-2 pax Price $5.50), (2-3 pax Price $7), (3-4 pax Price $10)

#6 – Aini Muslim Food

Introduction:

Gloriously fried rice with immense Wok Hei, coupled with crispy fried chicken and bits that will make Long John Silvers blush, this was one of the best dishes they had in a long time. Whether the squashing or marinade made the chicken so damn tender, is up for debate. But one thing is for sure, it was delicately tenderlicious. Tons of crispy bits showered on top of its crispy tumeric-infused skin. And if you are looking for healthy parts, you can forget it as it was oily and sinfully delicious. Nasi goreng, or fried rice, was so intense and aromatic, that it assaults the senses ferociously before they knew what hit them. Appearance may not be a display of elegance, but the reddish-golden grains of rice, mixed with umami-filled eggs, corn, and cauliflower bits certainly accentuated its taste.

Menu Items:

  • Squashed Fried Chicken (Price $5.50)
  • Wok Hei Fried Rice (Price $5.50)
  • Begedil (Price $0.70)

#7 – Da Chang Jin Handmade Chee Cheong Fun

Introduction:

Smoked Salmon Chee Cheong Fun – This isn’t smoked salmon. It’s salmon flakes, possibly from a can. But I liked it anyway, and I think it matches the Chee Cheong Fun better than smoked salmon would. The Chee Cheong Fun is not as silky smooth and thin as the Pek Kio one, but it’s smooth enough and well stuffed. There’s a nice addition of Chye Poh and tobiko at the side too. Plus, zero queues. (Anne Tay from Burple)

Menu Items:

  • Smoked Salmon Chee Cheong Fun (Price $5)
  • Mushroom Handmade Chee Cheong Fun (Price $3)
  • Char Siew (Price $3.50)
  • Handmade Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun
  • Prawn Chee Cheong Fun

#8 – New Lucky Claypot Rice

Introduction:

Stalls to be more specific, as New Lucky Claypot Rice occupies two stall spaces located within the Holland Drive Market and Food Centre. The waiting time is estimated to be between 20 to 30 minutes for off-peak periods, and 45 to 90 minutes for peak periods. That is because traditional Claypot Rice requires the rice to be cooked within the pot itself, with appropriate control of the fire. Plus the fact the stall is using charcoal, which would take up at least 45 minutes of cooking. The stall also offers Chinese-style soups, such as Salted Vegetable with Pork Ribs Soup, Chicken Feet with Peanut Sup, Watercress with Pork Ribs Soup, and Black Chicken Soup, Lotus Root with White Fungus, and White Fungus with Pork Ribs Soup. (DanielFoodDiary)

Menu Items:

  • Type A – Claypot Mixed Flavour
  • Type B – Claypot Chicken only
  • Type C – Claypot Chinese sausage only
  • Price $15 – 2 pax, Price $20 – 3 pax, Price $25 – 4 pax. Add on ingredients Price $5 onwards,
  • Soup of the day (Price $4)

#9 – Hakka Noodles

Introduction:

The big bowl of soup included a fish ball, Tau Pok, green chili, bitter gourd, tofu, and brinjal. The items are stuffed with meat paste instead of the usual fish paste. The Yong Tau Foo is not served with the usual sweet sauce. What they have, is this tangy and spicy dipping sauce. Do help yourself to it as it is placed outside the stall. (Thedeadcockraoch.blogspot.com)

Menu Items:

  • Yong Tau Fu Noodles (Price $3.50/$4.50)
  • Hakka Noodle (Price $4.50)
  • 6 pieces Yong Tau Foo (Price $3)
  • Menu Item D (Price $15)
