Lorong Ah Soo Bedok Chwee Kueh

BEDOK CHWEE KUEH

Steamed in small aluminium tins, each Chwee Kueh (S$2 for 4 pieces) yields a firm yet bouncy texture filled with the aroma of rice. The best part? You get a generous topping of sweet-savoury chye poh (preserved radish) and a side of fragrant homemade chili. This is one of the many distinctly Singaporean breakfast dish we cannot live without.

Lorong Ah Soo He He

HE HE

Unlike most Min Jiang Kueh stalls in Singapore, which are made extra-large that are later portioned out, He He makes small ones each perfect for one serving. You can never go wrong with the Peanut Min Jiang Kueh (peanut pancake).

The pancake-to-filling ratio is well-balanced and you can expect the traditional pancake to be packed with finely crushed peanut powder instead of peanut butter. From the thin and crispy homemade pancake to roasted peanuts, this min jiang kueh (S$0.90) makes a delightful afternoon snack or quick breakfast.

Lorong Ah Soo Jiu Ji Shu Shi

JIU JI SHU SHI

Want something other than Chinese fare? How about a humble Chinese hawker stall that offers scrumptious Malay fare?

Jiu Ji Shu Shi is well-known for their Malay dishes such as Lontong, Mee Siam and Mee Rebus. The Mee Rebus comes with yellow noodles, chopped green chili, a boiled egg, diced beancurd, topped with fried shallots and coriander and drenched in thick savoury gravy.

With everything on their menu going at S$2.50, no doubt this hawker stall is a crowd favourite for its pocket-friendly dishes. Besides Malay dishes, the stall offers a small range of Cantonese-style Porridge.

Lorong Ah Soo Shun Quan

SHUN QUAN

A hidden gem in Lorong Ah Soo Market, most would overlook this hawker stall as any other ordinary drink stall but they sell handmade silky-smooth Tau Huey at only S$0.80.

Besides having it plain, you can add almond essence or gingko nuts to your tau huey. We highly recommend adding gingko nuts as the subtle nutty flavour complements the rich soy bean taste. You would expect the gingko nuts to carry a slight bitterness but the ones at Shun Quan were soft, tasty and a far cry from being bitter.

XIN MEI COOKED FOOD

Tucked away in a corner of Hainanese Village Centre lies Xin Mei Cooked Food, a humble hawker stall serving an array of yong tau foo. Each bowl comes with yong tau foo of your choice soaked in a light ikan bilis-based soup. If you are filling hungry, you can add either yellow noodles or rice to your meal too.

Prices may be a little steep for a yong tau foo hawker stall (S$4.80 for 7 pieces) but the flavourful broth is definitely worth a try.

Lorong Ah Soo Yong Seng Teochew Fish Mee

YONG SENG TEOCHEW FISH BALL MEE

A popular staple amongst Singaporeans is dry mee pok and Yong Seng Teochew Fishball Mee is a must-try stall in Hainanese Village Centre. The dry mee pok (S$3.50) was cooked perfectly with al dente noodles, tossed in chili and vinegar and topped with various ingredients such as fish ball, fish cake, minced pork and liver, and mushrooms.

The pork liver, in particular, deserves a mention. After partially cooking it in boiling water, the liver would then be soaked in warm water for a couple of seconds to further cook it. This results in an absolutely tender texture that simply blows your mind. Do note that the queue at this hawker stall never seems to go away but we assure you, it is definitely worth the wait.
