Head down to Chinatown Food Street for these eats
A REOPENED food street in Chinatown features famous eateries such as Shi Sheng Claypot Frog Porridge and Old Airport Road Satay Bee Hoon & BBQ Steamboat.
The stalls are among 24 street-hawker stalls and six shophouse restaurants - all established players - drawn from across the island operating in the new Chinatown Food Street, a one-stop destination for quintessentially Singaporean street-hawker fare.
Chomp Chomp Goodluck BBQ Chicken Wings
Famed, juicy barbecued chicken wings from the stall that originated from Chomp Chomp Food Centre in Serangoon Garden.
The family-run Chinatown stall
has an expanded menu which also offers rojak, otah and grilled chicken drumstick with rice.
Katong Keah Kee Fried Oysters
A Teochew-style fried oyster omelette (or luak) that owner Law Jock Keah, 60, has been cooking for the past 40 years.
Chinatown Food Street Fried Kway Teow
A returning tenant in Chinatown Food Street who has been in the business for more than 10 years, hawker Chai Phey Wah, 45, returns with his family to offer his signature wok-fried black kway teow with fishcake, prawns and cockles.
With the stall's reopening, he is also offering an expanded menu that includes fried rice done four ways.
Joo Chiat Ang Moh Noodle House
Mr Ho Kok Choy, 63, was an executive chef with Parkroyal hotel for many years, before starting his own noodle stall in 2008 in Joo Chiat Road.
Try the signature wonton mee, served with char siew and crisp fried pork lard, or the beef brisket noodles.
Adam Road Nasi Lemak
A bit of secrecy surrounds this stall. Apparently, the owner said he used to work at one of the two famed nasi lemak stalls at Adam Road Food Centre - Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak and No. 1 Adam's Nasi Lemak.
He declined to say which. But, given that both are a hit among foodies, this stall is worth a try.
Geylang Lorong 9 Fresh Frog Porridge
This stall, also known as Shi Sheng Claypot Frog Porridge, originated in Geylang and has been in the business since 1995. It is known for its kung pao-style claypot frog dish, which is served with a bowl of plain congee.
There is also a ginger and spring onion claypot frog dish served with plain congee, or a frog porridge served with chunky pieces of tender meat.
Old Airport Road Satay Bee Hoon & BBQ Steamboat
A family-owned business which started in 1960, the stall is known for its thick, smooth satay bee hoon sauce. The Chinatown stall is the third outlet. The other stalls are in Old Airport Road and at the Singapore Flyer.
The Chinatown one offers new snacks, such as mashed potato with cheese or milk. There is also a Thai-meets-Korean-style barbecue steamboat menu.
