Top 10 Best Eats at Newton Food Centre

Newton Food Centre was opened in 1971 as Singapore’s first hawker centre built without a wet market. It was part of the government’s 1970 initiative to build dedicated food centres along major thoroughfares and traffic intersections. Its name is also commonly brought up by adventurous tourists looking to savour true blue Singaporean grub. And yes, it was also one of the signature filming locations of ‘Crazy Rich Asians’.

#1 – Kwang Kee Teochew Fish Porridge

Introduction:

Kwang Kee Teochew Fish Porridge has been around since the 1960s and is founded by Tan Cheng Khim. It started at the old Tanglin car park when it first opened and has slowly gained popularity till now.

It has grown more than 50 years and is been passed to the 2nd generation of the family where his son took over and it is still operating. His father insists on heading out alone each morning at 2 am to Jurong Port back then to select the fish. He is very particular about choosing fresh fish to provide customers with only the freshest catch, together with fish bones, which goes into the fish stock.

With the popular demand for fish porridge, local celebrities, ministers, and chefs have come to have a taste of it and people from different places in Singapore come to check out their food.

Come and taste the true 古早味 Fish Porridge/Soup with different variations here at Newton Food Centre in Singapore!

Why it is good:

Only the freshest catch, together with fish bones, goes into the fish stock. Noodles or rice are added to the stock, and then the finished product is topped with lettuce, fried shallots, and tongue-singeing chilli.

Why it is still around:

Jason decided to take over their father’s fish soup business because he had been hanging around and helping since he was young. Jason has a sense of satisfaction when he sees our regular customers.

#2 – OG Lemak

Introduction:

Newton Food Centre is now home to Chef Shen Tan’s award-winning twice-steamed Nasi Lemak.

Named after OG Dinks, Shen’s rescue cat who is in love with chicken drumsticks and ikan bilis, OG Lemak is Shen’s homecoming to where her culinary career began. 13 years ago, Shen ditched her corporate suit for a hawker apron with Madam Tan’s Nasi Lemak at Maxwell Food Centre. She then moved on to projects like Mod-Sin restaurant Wok&Barrel and Ujong @ Raffles Hotel.

Now back at the hawker centre, OG Lemak’s twice-steamed Nasi Lemak took Shen many years to perfect, and the final recipe takes over 4 hours to cook. With 11 ingredients like onions, ginger, lemongrass, pandan leaves, coconut milk, water, salt and fenugreek, the result is a flavourful and layered Nasi, much like the Nasi Lemak of yesteryear.

A Nasi Lemak for everyone – OG Lemak uses no pork, no lard and also serves a vegan set, so (almost) anyone can indulge in the thickness of Lemak!

Menu Items:

  • OG Lemak Set (Price $7.90)
  • Beef Rendang Set (Price $9.90)
  • Chicken Rendang Set (Price $9.90)
  • OG Lemak Chicken Thigh Set (Price $9.90)

#6 – Bee Heng Popiah

Introduction:

When it comes to popiah, Bee Heng Popiah & Satay claims to be one of the oldest stalls in Singapore, still using a traditional recipe that’s been passed down the generations since the 1930s.
