Hawker Heroes of Hong Lim Food Centre

Best of Hong Lim Food Centre

Conveniently located behind our hotel-in-a-garden and recognised by many for housing the best local food under one roof - there's no reason why you can give this food centre a miss. Love trying new local grub? Look no further than Hong Lim! It's as local as it gets, and here are eleven stalls that might not look like much, but will have you licking the plate clean! You might emerge from the hawker centre a sweaty mess, but we promise it'll be worth it. We've identified the stalls you must visit, helmed by hawker veterans and the signature dishes that make our neighbouring food haven so special.

1. Famous Sungei Road Trishaw Laksa

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-66, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours:
Mondays to Saturdays: 11:30am - 4:30pm
Closed on Sundays

We’ve saved the best for first, this laksa stall earned a much-coveted spot in the Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand Guide 2016. While most customers flock to the store for its popular ‘Asia Delight Laksa’, another signature dish worth a taste is the ‘Fruit Juice Crayfish Mee Siam’. Albeit slightly odd-sounding, this one-of-a-kind concoction is both satisfyingly spicy and sour, and healthy to the hilt. 

2. Outram Char Kway Teow

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-17, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours: 
Mondays to Saturdays: 6:00am - 4:00pm
Closed on Sundays

This award-winning long-time crowd favourite, and champion of the Street Food Masters for Char Kway Teow, is the place to go for finger-licking, wallet-friendly fried kway teow (flat rice noodles). According to many critics, the reason for its popularity lies in the added eggs that give the dish a creamier texture. 

3. Heng Kee Curry Chicken Bee Hoon

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-57/58, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours:
Tuesdays to Fridays: 10:30am - 3:30pm
Closed on Mondays, Sundays and PH

A family business that began more than 40 years ago, this humble stall serves some of the best curry chicken noodles in the country. Savour the tender meat of Hainanese poached chicken, topped with large potato chunks and a serving of noodles, soaked in thick, fragrant curry. That’s all it takes to be transported to paradise.

4. Tuck Kee Ipoh Sah Hor Fun

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-40, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours: 
Mondays to Saturdays: 11:00am - 2:45pm (or till sold out)
Closed on Sundays

When you visit Tuck Kee Ipoh Sah Hor Fun, the one dish you have to try is the Crayfish Hor Fun. At SGD8 a dish, its price tag is among the more expensive ones at the hawker centre. But it’s well worth the cost, considering the generous amount of juicy crayfish you get. The prawns included in the dish even come pre-peeled – a convenience many of us would relish.

5. High Street Tai Wah Pork Noodle

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-16, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours: 7:30am - 7:30pm daily

Not to be mistaken for the Michelin one-star stall of a similar name along Crawford Lane, Hong Lim’s High Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle holds its own as well with its ace ‘Bak Chor Mee’ (minced meat noodles) dish. For SGD6 a bowl, it serves up generous, lip-smacking portions of humble hawker fare that will have you licking your bowl clean every single time.   

6. Ji Ji Wanton Noodle Specialist

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-48/49/50, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours:
Mondays to Sundays: 6:00am - 8:30pm

In the mood for a bowl of wanton noodles? You can't go wrong with the time-tested choice rendition by Ji Ji Wanton Noodle Specialist, arguably the best one in the house. Theirs come with the bounciest of noodles, steamed dumplings, and thick slices of char siew that are bursting with flavours. You’ll be hardpressed not to order a second helping.

7. Ma Bo Lor Mee

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-34, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours: 8:30am - 6:30pm daily

Ma Bo Lor Mee’s namesake dish is a succulent marriage of flavours, from the flat yellow noodles bathed in thick braised gravy to the fried fish nuggets and fish cake slices. Available from SGD2.50 a bowl, it's an absolute steal and there is no way you’re going to find a better deal than this.

8. Tanglin Crispy Curry Puff

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-36, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours
Mondays to Saturdays: 7:00am - 7:00pm (or till sold out)
Closed on Sundays

Touted as the best curry puff in Singapore, these humble little pastries will leave you wanting more. Not your regular sweet dessert puffs, these are filled with either chicken, sardines or fish otah, each packing a punch! Since its first stall opened in 1952, the family’s secret recipe has been passed down from one generation to the next, perfectly preserving the signature ‘Crackle and Puff’. Our personal favourite is fish otah, which also happens to be their newest addition, and you will have a hard time finding this flavour elsewhere. We are so glad that we no longer have to venture far for the best curry puffs in Singapore since this stall made Hong Lim its home in September 2016! 

9. Teochew Fishball Kway Teow Mee

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-65, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays to Sundays: 7:00am - 12:00pm
Closed on Mondays and Thurdays

Food bloggers in Singapore do not write enough about this underrated hawker stall, despite it being one of Hong Lim’s most popular vendors. You’ll need immense patience to wait at least 20 minutes for a plate of fishball kway teow noodles, but it no longer feels like a trying feat once you think about the succulent, bouncy noodles and aromatic pork lard sauce that await you.

10. Cantonese Delight

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-03, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours
Tuesdays to thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays: 10:00am - 3:00pm
Closed on Mondays and Fridays

Another stall to pop by is Cantonese Delights, owned by a couple who quit their glamorous jobs at Singapore Airlines to put on the chef’s uniform. Among the dishes to try are the widely loved laksa yong tau foo, and the chicken cutlet curry mee, especially if you’ve got the stomach for spice. Otherwise, the dumpling noodles are just as delectable.

11. SL II Muffin

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, Stall #02-32, Singapore 051531
Opening Hours: 7:30am - 5:00pm daily

There’s always room for desserts, and especially so when you’ve gotten a taste of the mouthwatering treats at SL II Muffin. What’s more, they’re extremely easy on the wallet as well. The classic egg tart costs only SGD1, and it is nothing short of amazing, much like heaven in a pastry, if you will.
