Xing Ji wanton noodle
Location: 137 Tampines Road 11, Spherical Market Meals Centre, #01-35
Once I say the char siew right here sells out quick, I imply you’ll be able to typically get right here at 11am and discover that there’s no extra. When that occurs I comply with have shredded rooster in my wantan mee as an alternative.
The noodles are good and QQ, and the wantan skins are skinny, clean and stuffed with well-seasoned pork. Basically, this stall sells consolation on a plate, wearing a well-balanced chilli sauce.
Lau Li Pig’s viscera soup pork ribs prawn noodle soup
Location: 137 Tampines Road 11, Spherical Market Meals Centre, #01-43
I all the time order the dry prawn mee right here. The seller is so beneficiant with the sliced pork and prawns that you would be able to hardly see the noodles buried beneath the sheer quantity of elements.
I like the shallot oil and lard which can be blended into the noodles giving them a tasty depth. The soup can also be wealthy and virtually bisque-like; apparently, it will get it richness from simmering in a single day.

Opened by the girl boss behind the now defunct Jane Thai Kitchen at Orchard Towers, this stall is a fast, transportive escape to Thailand by means of some killer Thai basil pork with rice, and tom yam rooster wings.
Whereas the wings do look quite scrawny, they’re all the time juicy and pack a tasty punch. It’s the type of meals you’ll need to sit right down to with a number of beers on the sofa to look at Netflix all day.
Fu Li Seafood Zi Char
Location: 138 Tampines Road 11 #01-116
On any given day, once we can’t resolve what to eat, our default is the white bee hoon from this stall, which we normally da bao house. In some way, the noodles and gravy by no means get claggy even after the dish has sat out for some time.
The flavours and textures are simply clear and comforting. Once we dine on the eatery, we usually order the candy and bitter fish (quite than pork) as a result of we like how the batter is skinny and crisp whereas the fish stays silky inside.
In addition they do a superb Nonya prawn and sotong curry, which tastes like laksa spiked with numerous lemongrass. In fact, when there’s a crowd, it’s important to order the yam ring. So good.
I Am Lemak
Location: 201 Tampines Road 21, Chang Cheng Meals Court docket
I’ve by no means eaten on the stall itself as a result of it’s all the time crowded, however we order this for supply typically. The nasi lemak is easy and serviceable, however the magic is within the sambal. It has a homestyle really feel to it, so you recognize it wasn’t made in a manufacturing unit, with loads of kick and never candy.
The menu provides some novel accompaniments like tacky lobster, however we want the easy fried rooster or butterfly kuning fish.
