#1 – Chuan Kee Boneless Braised Duck


It is owned and operated by Huang Ming Yu, who began the stall when he was just 23. At 15, he left school and worked for his cousin at He Ji Braised Duck at Clementi.

That was where he learned how to cook braised duck. He then created his own recipes for Chuan Kee, which up to now remain a well-kept secret within the family.

#4 – Jiu Jiang Shao La (Ghim Moh Market & Food Centre)

Introduction: Nestled amongst the many food stalls in Ghim Moh Food Centre lies Jiu Jiang Shao La—a food stall that specialises in roasted meats, and is especially known for their roasted duck meat.

The duck meat was excellent, considering rather dry. The duck might have been cooked a bit longer so it could attain an even more flavourful and crispy skin. The duck skin was so addictive that after eating all the meal, still craved some more. However, the star of the show was the glistening char siew meat. It was well-marinated but not too salty, and charred to perfection. The sweet caramelization on the exterior of the succulent meat was the cherry on top of the cake.

Menu Items:

  • char siew rice (Price $5)
  • duck rice (Price $5)
  • duck drumstick with rice (Price $5.30)
  • half a Roasted Duck (Price$16)

Location: 20 Ghim Moh Road Market & Food Centre

#5 – Kong Shang Hua Wanton Noodles

Introduction: Right here on the menu are simple dishes that include Noodles with Mushrooms, Horfun of Chicken Feet, Noodles with Chicken and Horfun, and Soaked Noodles with Wanton Mee. These perfectly prepared dishes bring customers from all over the town. The noodles were delightfully springy, and had a nice balance of slight sweet and savoury aftertaste after coated with the sauce.

A single serving of the Wanton Mee ($3, $3.50, $4) comes with thin noodles tossed in generous amount sauce.

Menu Items:

  • Wanton noodle
  • Dumpling noodle
  • Dumpling soup
  • Chicken feet noodle
  • Mushroom Noodles

#6 – Lao Chao Zhou

Introduction: Contrary to its name, Lao Chao Zhou does not sell teochew porridge or cuisine. Instead, it sells satay bee hoon, a dish that I love but not commonly available at hawker centers in Singapore because I heard that a lot of work is required to make the sauce. 

A lot of preparation time is required to prepare the sauce for Satay Bee Hoon , generously laden with cockles, kang kong, pork liver, lean pork slices, taupok and uttlefish in a nutty and smooth textured peanut sauce. For $6, it can add more bee hoon and prawns.

The sauce was thick and creamy, neither too heavy nor too sweet. The fact that the sauce wasn’t too grainy, a sign that efforts were put in to ensure a smooth consistency.  The sheer amount of sauce ensured that the vermicelli won’t dry up as fast as they would have. But those with a preference for richer, spicier flavors might find this slightly bland. 

Menu Items:

  • Satay Bee Hoon (Price $4, $6)
  • Mee Siam (Price $3)

Location: #01-18, Block 20 Ghim Moh Road, Singapore 270020

#7 – Ghim Moh Carrot Cake


Carrot cake connoisseurs would know this place in a heartbeat. So, it needs no introduction. With two outlets under their belt, one at ABC Brickworks Market and Food Centre and the original at Ghim Moh Road Market & Food Centre, there is always a snaking queue for their homemade carrot cake. 

The Black Carrot Cake (S$3/S$4/S$5) here is sweeter than most I’ve tried, but it’s probably due to the generous amount of dark soy sauce added. Radish bits that can be found were slightly salty but I felt like they brought a good contrast against the sweetness from the dark soy sauce. Personally, I’d love for the spring onions to be a tad bit crunchier. 

We were delighted by the appearance of their white carrot cake. It was soft but lumpy. The owners of this stall make their own radish cake from scratch, which means that when you taste their carrot cake, it has its own unique flavour. As for the black version, a generous amount of black sauce was added to it, just enough to give it a slightly sweet taste which does not overpower the mild saltiness of the radish.

Menu Items:

  • Black/ White Carrot cake (Price $2.50, $3, $4 and $5)

Location: 20 Ghim Moh Rd, #01-16, Singapore 270020

#8 – Tom’s City Zoom Mee Pok Tar

Introduction: Even though Tom’s City Zoom Mee Pok Tar’s name can be read as “The Stall of Tom’s City,” it offers lots of noodle options for customers’ tastes. You can have kway teow soup if you so wish. I chose to have your thermometer, a regular $3.50, the soup was attractively garnished with a number of toppings. Two fishballs and some small cut-up pork float in the soup bowl.

Menu Items:

  •  Signature Mee Pok Tar Set ($3.50)
  • Fishcake ($1.40)

Location: 20 Ghim Moh Road, stall #01-11, Singapore 270020

Go to Teck Hin Delicies anytime after 10AM at time of the day and you will encounter a queue or they will sell out.

#10 – Ghim Moh Chwee Kueh

Introduction: The stall is also listed in the Singapore Michelin Guide with the L’Assiette Michelin or Michelin Plate (but not Bib Gourmand yet). The texture of the Chwee kueh was soft yet slightly firm, and so not overly-wobbly, that was good enough to eat with just a dab of cai po and chilli.

Menu Items:

  • Chwee Kuehs ($0.50 each) minimum order of 4 pcs

Location: 20 Ghim Moh Rd, #01-54, Singapore 270020
