Top 10 Best Eats at Whampoa Food Centre

Whampoa Makan Place, a popular wet market and food centre, stands on the site of a former municipal wet market known as Rayman Market, which opened in 1952 to serve residents of a former housing estate called Rayman Estate. The former Rayman Market stood on the site of the current Block 90. In 1973, it was replaced by Whampoa Market and Food Centre (Block 91), which was later upgraded into the present Whampoa Makan Place in 2006-08. Whampoa Market was named after Hoo Ah Kay, a merchant who was also known as Whampoa after his birthplace, Huangpu in Guangdong province, China. This popular food centre houses many popular stalls, and here’s our top 10 picks.

#1 – China Whampoa Home Made Noodles

Introduction:

It’s super worth for $4 per bowl. irstly for the you mian soup, the soup taste light yet sweet thanks to the prawns. the prawns are really fresh and huge, definitely a plus due to its price point. the meatball was very flavourful. bonus for using mani cai as the main vegetable. the noodles are quite qq as well. s for the dry you mian, the chilli was the star of the dish. the spice slowly seeps and tingle into your tastebuds instead of the in-your-face boom at first tasting. however, the sweet soy sauce base for the noodles was a tad too sweet for my liking. Overall, the you mian soup deserves an A while the dry you mian pales in comparison.

  • Tom Yum Handmade You Mee ( Price From $13 )

#2 – Xin Heng Feng Guo Tiao Tan (Fish Steamboat)

Introduction:

This stall at Whampoa Hawker Centre sells one of the best mince meat noodle that I have tasted so far.

For $4, there is so much ingredients (mince meat, sliced meat, meatball, wanton)and the noodles are handmade, not like the type that you get from a typical mince meat noodle. The texture is a on the softer side but it is just nice for me. Queue moves quite fast as there are 2 ‘stations’ 🙂

Will surely come back again to try their other selections.

Menu Items:

  • Fish Ball Mixed ( Price From small $3 / big $4 )
  • Fish Ball Noodle ( Price From small $3 / big $4 )
  • Minced Meat Noodle ( Price From small $3 / big $4 )
  • Morning Fish Ball Noodle ( Price From small $3 / big $4 )
  • Night Fish Ball Noodle ( Price From small $3 / big $4 )

Location: 91 Whampoa Drive, #01-14/15, Singapore 320091

Introduction:

The Lor Mee stall only makes two $3 and $4 servings, and the $4 portion comes with an additional piece of fish. If the braised egg is unavailable, you can request for that added. The wait is typically quite long, spanning about a half-hour on average.

Menu Items:

  • Lor Mee ( Price From $3 / $4 per bowl )

Location: 91 Whampoa Drive, #01-19, Singapore 320091

#4 – Beach Road Fish Head Bee Hoon

Introduction:

Decided to queue for this stall because all other stalls that I wanted to try are closed on Tuesdays. I am pleasantly surprised by how gooood this bowl of fish soup is and yet didn’t hear much about this stall when reading through “best food in whampoa” or “best fish soup in Singapore” articles. The white beehoon itself is very smooth and a tiny bit smaller than the usual ones, but of course, the star has to be the fish. We both prefer the fried fish— fried till crispy outside yet the meat is tender (and not mushy). The white fish is nothing special but still enjoyable. Added milk to the soup to get a more creamy taste profile and I’m so happy that the milk doesn’t overpower the original soup flavour. This is one of the best fish soup I’ve tried because each component is done well. What a hidden gem!

Menu Items:

  • Sliced Fish Bee Hoon ( Price From $4.50 )
  • Sliced Fish Soup ( Price From $4.50 )
  • Fish Porridge ( Price From $4.50 )
  • Seafood Soup ( Price From $4.50 )
  • Special Tom Yum Soup ( Price From $4.50 )
  • Rice ( Price From $0.30 )

#5 – 545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles

Introduction:

Choose from either dry or soup versions of prawn noodle here, and shrimp noodle strips range from S$4 to S$10. If you prefer other noodles like Kway Teow or Bee Hoon, come earlier as both types were sold out before 11:00 a.m. during my visit. If you’re a first-timer, I’d advise trying out both dry and soup varieties to make the line worthwhile. Share it with someone else.

This hawker stall is helmed by Ruifang, spurred on by the need to carry her dad’s prawn noodles recipe into a new generation.

The roots of prawn noodles in Ruifang’s family go as far back into the 1950s when her grandfather started selling it along the streets of Whampoa before it was even named so. In 1973, Whampoa Market was built. As her grandfather fell ill, Ruifang’s Dad and Grandmother took a stall, and has been selling prawn noodles since then. The current stall at Whampoa Market is run by Ruifang’s aunts.
Since 2014, Ruifang has continued to bring bowls of tradition and history to Tekka Food Centre.

Menu Items:

  • Prawn Noodles Soup / Dry ( Price From $3 / $4 )

#6 – Mat Noh & Rose Authentic Ginger Fried Chicken Rice

Among all the stalls at Whampoa Food Centre, this Halal stall stand up with always a queue in front of them. Many people come here for their famous and authentic ginger fried chicken and I totally go with them.

Even I have takeaway back home to eat after sometime, the chicken still taste great especially mixing with the chili and sweet sauce, topped with crunchy bites above.

Menu Items:

  • Original Chicken ( Price From $4.50 )
  • Upsize 1/4 Chicken ( Price From $7 )

#7 – Robert Mee Siam

Introduction:

Robert Mee Siam good value for money at only $2.50 a plate, with an extra $0.50 for an egg. The vermicelli noodles are soft and smooth, covered with chives, and crunchy bean curd cubes. The colour of the gravy doesn’t change even after mixing in the sambal chilli on the side, and has a rather gritty texture to it. The taste, however, pleasantly surprises, with a nice mix of sweet, salty, and sour. The sweetness, however, tends to linger more as a slightly cloying aftertaste.

Menu Items:

  • Mee Siam ( Price From $3 )
  • Add-on Rice, Bee Hoon ( Price From $0.50 )

Kindly contact them for more information on the pricing, and etc via the phone number below.

#8 – Deep Fried Carrot Cake

Introduction:

Mention carrot cake, and the usual white or black fried variety comes to mind. A rarer version of carrot cake is carrot cake sticks, an old-school snack that’s impossibly addictive. You can still find it at Whampoa Makan Place, where there’s a stall aptly named ‘Deep Fried Carrot Cake’ that has been operating for 21 years. Manned by a solo man, the carrot sticks are first painstakingly cut into strips, arranged aesthetically on a metal grill of sorts, before lowered into boiling oil, and deep-fried. Going at 14 pieces for $2, or 21 pieces for $3, these little babies sell out fast. They are served piping hot in a brown paper bag; simple and fuss-free, just the way I like it. Each piece leaves a thin film of grease on my fingers when picked up; yet, surprisingly, this doesn’t translate to an oily mouthfeel.

Menu Items:

  • Deep-Fried Carrot Cake ( Price from $2 for 14 pcs , $3 for 21 pcs )

Location: 91 Whampoa Drive, #01-36, Singapore 320091

#9 – Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee

Introduction:

One of the best we’ve tried, their Fried Hokkien Mee ($4) has a savoury fragrance, with inputs well blended to create an enduring flavour. The dish had the right texture and flavours from the various components were absorbed into the noodles. The fluffy strips of fried egg did well to absorb the stock’s essence, elevating the overall experience. However, we felt that the dish on a whole was lacking that smoky wok hei quality we were eagerly anticipating.

Menu Items:

  • Fried Hokkien Mee ( Price From $4 )

#10 – Balestier Road Hoover Rojak

Introduction:

Michelin-recognised, Balestier Road Hoover Rojak has been around for more than 60 years. Churning out plates of Penang-style rojak, this spot mixes the ingredients using a trusty mortar. It all starts with a mixture of some chilli paste, grinded nuts, sugar, and other sauces. Then, some lime juice and bunga kantan are added into the mix. Fresh fruits and vegetables are beautifully tossed together, coating every inch.

Menu Items:

  • Rojak ( Price From $4 / $5 )

Location: 91 Whampoa Drive, #01-32, Singapore 320091
