The East area—more specifically Bedok—is laden with many food gems scattered all around. The most popular being Bedok 85 Fengshan Market & Food Centre but that barely scratches the surface.
One of our newest hawker fads in the East is Block 216 North Street 1 Market & Food Centre or Bedok 216 for short. The number of stalls with snaking queues here is insane, which says a lot about the kind of food that they serve here! From Yummy’s unique chee cheong fun topped with crispy beancurd skin to Hai Sheng’s perfectly fried white carrot cake, here are 9 stalls here that we definitely recommend!
216 PORK RIB PRAWN NOODLE (#01-24)
If you love prawn pork rib noodles as we do, this is the perfect place to go to when the cravings strike. We love how this place lets us mix different kinds of noodles which give the dish more texture.
For all our kway chap fans out there who love a solid plate of offals, this is a great place to check out. The intestines here are clean and deliciously chewy, and we love how it goes well with the slippery, springy kway.
HAI SHENG CARROT CAKE (#01-49)
Who can resist a plate of moist yet crisp carrot cake that is chock full of wok hei? We definitely can’t, and this has become one of our favourite places to get some solid, mouthwatering carrot cake for when the cravings hit us hard.
HAN KEE FISH SOUP (#01-46)
Han Kee Fish Soup sees one of the longest queues here at Bedok 216 on a regular basis, and we waited a good 20 minutes for our food. It was, however, worth it, especially since the soup was incredibly tasty and the fish, extremely thick and fresh.
JOO CHIAT CHIAP KEE (#01-31)
If you’re craving some great fishball noodles, you definitely should check this place out. They serve up a generous portion of noodles that come with a bowl of delightfully springy and chewy fishballs.
MA BO LOR MEE (#01-76)
The long snaking queues were a giveaway that this place served up some pretty solid lor mee. For s$2.50, you get a generous portion of this slippery, rich goodness to fulfil your lor mee cravings.
For affordable umeboshi sets, you should definitely check out Plum & Rice. Umeboshi is famous for having multiple health benefits which include aiding in digestion and promoting the elimination of toxins.
YAN CHEN SOYA BEAN DRINKS (#01-48)
If you think that Singapore does not have any drink stalls that sell drinks for less than a dollar, you are wrong. This place has soya bean and grass jelly drinks for a mere 70 cents! Definitely a steal.
If you love chee cheong fun, here is an interesting one to try. They serve their chee cheong fun here topped with freshly fried yong tau fu, which is a nice crunchy addition to the dish.
