Great Food in Singapore


Recently left Singapore after a few days of non stop eating. Well you know how it is.

But two places that stand out better than all the rest, are two local places. One is within 50 metres of China Town MTR station, called the Morning Bah Kut Tea stall. It is within an estate. It seems to have been there for an age but still serves the best breakfast ever. Lots of offal and ribs are on offer.
The other is in the Pek Kio Market and Food Centre. Again based within an estate but also has a fantastic fresh produce market there also.

Both places we went there for breakfast. Both were cheap, both served good food, both had a great atmosphere. Both were frequented by local Singaporeans only.

You can read more of them at the following links :




If you get a chance I recommend you go. If you do or have been, I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences there.

  1. Glad to hear that you enjoyed some genuine hawker food in Singapore, mzungu. And you found "Morning Bah Kut Teh"!

    Lots of Singaporeans vote either "Founder Bah Kut Teh" in Balestier Road or "Ng Ah Sio Bah Kut Teh" in Rangoon Road as being the best in town.

    But I liked "Morning Bah Kut Teh" best actually - plus, it's located in Hong Lim Food Centre, where you can also get the best chicken curry noodles (Ah Heng) and prawn noodles (Old Hokkien) in Singapore. "Morning Bah Kut Teh", as the name suggests, usually sells out before noon.
