Why visit? Experience noodle nirvana here at Ah Hock Fried Hokkien Mee, a Michelin Plate-recipient. Packed with that must-have wok hei flavour, this beloved Chomp Chomp hokkien mee comprises thick yellow noodles and thin bee hoon (rice vermicelli) cooked with prawns and squid and soaking in an umami-rich broth that’s been simmered for hours.  

Take note of Chomp Chomp’s opening hours though — Ah Hock opens only in the evening, making it one of the popular dinner and supper spots in the hawker centre.

Given its legendary status, be prepared for a long wait of at least 30 to 45 minutes while the uncle cooks up a storm.

Price range: $

Why visit?  If you’re looking for a quick bite that isn’t too filling, consider popping by Chomp Chomp Rojak and Popiah. 

The Chinese-style rojak is a medley of fruits and vegetables of cucumber chunks, fried dough fritters, tau pok, crunchy turnip, and tangy pineapple slices, drizzled in a sweet sauce and liberally coated with a layer of roasted peanuts. It’s just the right balance of sweet and crunch.   

Price range: $

Crowd favourites: Besides the rojak (from S$3), another equally tasty alternative is the hand-rolled popiah (S$4). Comprising tender skin, this goes perfectly with the dish’s savoury mix of vegetables, egg and prawn.

Price: $ 

Crowd favourites: Go for the white carrot cake that’s deliciously crispy and eggy, if you prefer something with more bite. However, its black version is our pick, hands down, because of its more intense, slightly sweet flavour and perfectly charred exterior (from S$3).
