Finally, a way to get your regular dose of Marina South Delicious Food’s char kway teow and oyster egg without smelling like you’ve been infused with charred wok hei yourself. You’ve got a choice of Fried Kway Teow ($4.50), Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodles ($4.50), as well as Carrot Cake ($3.50) – both black and white.
They also do Prawn Omelette, Fried Oyster, and Oyster Egg with each dish priced at $6.50.

This particular store sells out fast with plenty of office workers making a beeline for their coveted bowl of ban mee. Grandma Ban Mee’s noodles come lightly tossed with black fungus, anchovies, fried onions, and minced pork. Choose from either Soup or Dry ($4.30), or if you’re craving a spicy kick, then opt for Chilli ($5.50) for the crunchy dry chilli.

Joining a queue of 15 or so hungry people isn’t anyone’s idea of fun, but you’d need to do just that to get a bowl of wanton noodles from Ji Ji Wanton Noodle Specialist. Thanks to an automated cooking machine, their noodles are reputably bouncy with a QQ spring to it.

Their star dish is the Char Siew Wanton Noodles ($4.50), but try their Special Set Meal at the same price – it comes with a generous load of char siew, braised black sauce chicken wings, and crispy prawn wantons. Other choices include Fresh Prawn Dumpling Noodles, Soya Sauce Chicken Noodles, Ipoh Hor Fun, and Chicken Cutlet Noodles, all priced at $4.50.

Many of us like our Hokkien mee drenched in a light gravy, but Hainan Hokkien Mee does a perfectly dry rendition where the savouriness is absorbed into each strand. From Golden Mile Food Centre – not to be confused with Golden Mile Complex’s Thai food – this hawker stall is often frequented for their Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee ($4.50).

There’s no need to deal with the humidity and smokiness when you next get a sambal stingray craving since you can get Chomp Chomp’s Happy BBQ dishes delivered straight to you. Besides Sambal Stingray ($13.50) – with a nod of appreciation to the copious amount of sambal – they also offer Sambal Lala ($11) and Sambal Mussels ($11).
Veggies like Sambal Kang Kong and Garlic Baby Kailan are also available, each dish priced at $7, and Oyster Omelette and Prawn Omelette for $9 each.

There’s nothing like cosying up to a bowl of piping hot lor mee when it’s thundering outside, especially when stalls like 178 Lor Mee have a perpetually long queue. But no worries, since they’re up for delivery on WhyQ. Their Lor Mee ($3.50) comes with noodles seeping in flavourful gravy, and best of all, deep fried nuggets made out of shark meat.

Chee cheong fun is usually a breakfast dish, but when they make it as silky as they do at Freshly Made Chee Cheong Fun, you’ll be craving their slippery rolls for a light lunch or midday snack. Their 2-piece Chee Cheong Fun ($6) and Prawn Roll ($7) are their specialities, but they also offer up Congee ($3.50) with a choice of sliced fish, pork, or lean meat with century egg.
