#2 – Golden Mile Special Yong Tau Foo
Introduction: Yong Tau Foo ingredients on display consisted of normal Yong Tau Foo ingredients. If you are a fan of Yong Tau Foo, you would notice the vendors bar offered a limited selection compared to others. But what made its awesome was that the ingredients were all so fresh. You can expect to pay $0.40 for a minimum of 8 ingredients, $0.50 for cuttlefish and $0.50 for bee hoon. This is an awesome price! Because of these reasons, enough food is rarely lacking. It’s also popular at this particular location because of the low price and low wait time. By taking a while, you will have to wait for about 25 minutes to 45 minutes.

#3 – Yew Chuan Claypot Rice
Introduction: Yew Chuan Claypot Rice is one of the most popular stalls at Golden Mile Food Center. It ticks all the right boxes of a good traditional claypot chicken rice, using freshly cooked ingredients and finishing over a charcoal grill. Your wait time is at least 30 minutes but you would not know it because customers are standing at their respective tables. The easiest ordering procedure is to create a booth first (which is not easy at peak times), go to the stall, make your order, pay, and inform them of your booth number. Your cooked meals will be delivered to your seat (it’s due to the current lengthened time in receiving food). The bottom layer of rice was overcooked, however it doesn’t pose any issues. The layer of rice just above it was shaved perfectly until finally a thick brown crust covered it, offering a rugged crunch and wonderfully nutty taste. Just spit out the burnt part of the rice on the bottom of clay pot.
- Claypot Chicken Rice (Price $12/$18/$24/$30 – Individual portion $5.00)
- Oyster Sauce Vegetable (Price $5- $7)
Location: 505, Beach Road #01-73 Golden Mile Food Center , S(199583)

#4 – Wedang
Forget extensive menus and that dizzying array of options you get when dining out – when you visit a seemingly ordinary hawker stall like Wedang and notice it puts out no more than five dishes (sometimes less, depending on availability) and yet, has a Bib Gourmand award, you’ll see why owner Azman Kamis is a confident believer in quality, not quantity. After leaving his job at the Port of Singapore Authority (PSA) in 2003, Mr Kamis, now in his late 50s, entered the F&B business by starting a small coffee shop stall and selling tahu goreng and epok-epok. In 2004, cousin Anuar Arshad, who sold satay in Golden Mile Food Centre, taught him all he needed to know about running a satay business and in 2005, Mr Kamis took over the reins. That’s how Wedang was born: in 2005 and in Golden Mile Food Centre, #B1-28. “Wedang is an Indonesian term for ‘drink’, but in the local context of Singapore (particularly Singaporean Javanese), it’s used to refer to tea breaks or coffee time. It’s a word that’s used to encourage people to take a breather and enjoy some food and drinks,” explains Mr Kamis.
Dishes like the gado gado, tahu goreng, and satay caught the attention of Michelin inspectors.
“In my opinion, good satay is mostly about the cut of meat that’s used. That’s how and where the texture differentiates,” says Mr Kamis.
The gado gado – which comes with fried tofu, tempeh, potatoes, and keropok – and satay creations both feature the same thick, savoury-sweet peanut gravy that serves as a dipping sauce. “As for our tahu goreng, we only use fresh tofu. I think that’s the key ingredient to making excellent tahu goreng,” says Mr Kamis. He also adds that those who prefer their tahu goreng spicier may ask for more chilli padi to be added to the gravy
- Mee Rebus (Price $3.50)
- Satay (Price $0.70 each)
- Mee Soto (Price $3.50)
- Gado Gado (Price $3.50)

#5 – Chef Choo Signature
Introduction: This is probably the best pasta we ever had in a hawker centre! Chef Choo Signature is a western food stall at Golden Mile Food Centre (#B1-45) and it is helmed by Chef Choo, a former chef at five-star hotels such as Regent and Grand Hyatt. We decided to try the daily special: Japanese Scallops Fettuccine with Spicy White Wine Garlic Sauce ($12.90). The fettuccine is al dente and each strand of pasta is thoroughly coated in the rich and garlicky white wine sauce. The flavour and aroma are on point and the scallops are plump and fresh. The portion is quite generous as well.
- Spaghetti Carbonara (Price $5.50)
- Sizzling Seafood Spaghetti (Price $6.90)
- Spaghetti Alio Olio (Price $4.50)
- Chicken Chop (Price $4.90)

#8 – The Original Vadai
Introduction: The Original Vadai is one of the unusual stalls that migrated from pasar malam (which are more temporary in nature) to fixed outlets within hawker centers. Due to the novel 2020 coronavirus that affected the trading industry and prompted shutdown of certain bazaars, the business has been able to innovate while maintaining its original concept. It has now 3 outlets. On older menus, they often used to serve smaller prawns but later on they added bigger ones conscious that they looked more attractive when photographed for Instagram (grammatical), and these prawns lent a further savouriness and crunch to the texture.
- Prawn Vadai (Price $1 per pc)
- Ikan Bilis Vadai (Price $1per pc)
- Dhal Vadai (Price $2.50 for 3pcs)
- Chocolate Vadai (Price $4.50 per serving)

#10 – Wen Kang Ji Wanton Noodle
Tucked away in a corner of Golden Mile Food Centre is Wen Kang Ji, which sells only wanton mee. Despite its rather plain signboard, the storefront is riddled with stellar reviews and praise. We readied ourselves for a great meal, and boy were we not disappointed. Layers upon layers of glaze applied during the in-house roasting process create a delightfully sticky “skin” that adds to the overall texture. The result is a well-balanced sweet-savoury flavour, with just a hint of smoke. The noodles were not the usual mee kia; they leaned more towards the egg noodles typically served in Hong Kong’s wanton mee stalls. While good, the noodles here were nothing to shout about.
- Wanton Noodles (Price $6 – $8)
- Dumpling Noodles (Price $5)
- Wanton Soup (Price $5)
