The regular offering size of Char Kway Teow costs $4 or $5 (rate subject to change because of rising cost of living nowadays), and was quite loaded with some Chinese sausages, cockles as well as beansprouts.

#5 – Bee Kee Wanton Noodles

We find the Truffle Wanton Noodle fares far better than the initial wanton noodle partially as a result of the truffle aroma. The truffle oil might have oiled the appearance of the noodles, so it was not as dry as the original version. We assume it has prospective to be an exceptional dish of wanton noodle but it requires to deal with its char siew and also wanton.

#10 -Ah Seng (Hai Nam) Coffee
The Story: This Hainanese kopi-and-toast stall was started by Mr Wong Lock Seng’s father, who was from Hainan Island and worked as a seaman and Chinese teapot merchant. After migrating to Singapore, he set up his stall at Lau Pa Sat in 1964. Wong took over the stall a decade later and it relocated to Amoy Street Food Centre in 1997, where it has been for the past 11 years. These days, he runs the stall with his wife and son, whom he has identified as his successor. Ah Seng (Hai Nam) Coffee is one of the few remaining hawker stalls that toast their bread over charcoal. Wong expertly flips pillowy slices of white bread over a charcoal grill, which imparts a subtle smokiness to the lightly browned and crisp slabs.
Besides kaya toast (that is usually wolfed down with two soft-boiled eggs), the stall is also known for its French toast — the egg-soaked bread is pan-fried to a golden brown hue — and served with a dollop of house-made kaya accompanied by an eggy pandan fragrance. Besides making toast, the 71-year-old also brews a thick and potent Hainanese coffee made with aromatic Robusta beans that are ground in-house.

- French toast ( Price $3)
- Kopi ( Price $0.80)
