Top 20 less-known hawkers
Monday May 30, 2011 02:22 am PDT

We scour the streets of Singapore to find the best hawker joints that you don't know about but should
1. Ban Mian, L32 Shou Gong Mian Stall 32, Lorong 32 Geylang, 558 Geylang Rd.

These homemade noodles have just the right thickness, and are soft and supple. The soup is light yet flavourful, and complements the fresh and slightly sweet prawns and extremely crispy-fried anchovies. But the best bit is the chili which is delightfully spicy. ($3-5.50)

2. Black Carrot Cake, Le Yi Shi Fried Carrot Cake, #01-38, 93 Toa Payoh Lorong 4 Hawker Centre

The carrot cake here is chopped thickly, so those who prefer chunky cuts will be pleased. Fried until slightly caramelised, it's evenly coated with thick, dark soy sauce. It's not cloyingly sweet and is balanced well with the somewhat fiery and sour chili. ($2-3)

3. Briyani, Ali Nachia Briyani Dam, #02-04, Blk. 5 Tanjong Pagar Plaza

A combination of Northern and Southern Indian influences, the briyani here consists of raita, curry with eggplant and potato, mutton and achar. The rice is fragrant but not too oily, and is topped with a generous chunk of mutton that's amazingly tender when bitten into. The raita is also different from the standard, watery types, and is rich and satisfying. ($6)

4. Char Kway Teow, Heng Huat Fried Kway Teow, #01-36 Pasir Panjang Food Centre, 121 Pasir Panjang Rd.

It's surprisingly vegetable-heavy, but in a good way. Tasty yet not too oily, the crunch from the vegetables mingles well with the softness of the kway teow. ($3)

5. Chinese Rojak , Stall 11 Economic Bee Hoon-Nasi Lemak-Rojak Stall, 11 Sembawang Hill Food Centre, 590 Upper Thomson Rd.

Portions here are generous, so come prepared to eat. The fruits and veggies are chopped into large chunks and tossed with you tiao, tao pok and rojak sauce. The toasted you tiao is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside with a mildly-charred taste, while the tao pok is softer than the you tiao and absorbs the sauce nicely. ($3-4)

6. Fish Ball Noodles, Da Zhong Meatball, Fishball, Kway Teow Mee, #02-196 Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre, 116 Upper Bukit Timah Rd.

The stars here are the springy and firm homemade fish balls, but fish cakes and meatballs are also all full of flavour. ($2.80)

7. Hainanese Chicken Rice, Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice, #01-15 Alexandra Village Food Centre, 120 Bukit Merah Lane 1

You'll be thrilled with this find: fluffy, fragrant rice with moist and juicy chicken flesh. Don't forget to pile on the delicious, finely-ground chili. The soup is also slurp-worthy and has a slight herbal taste. ($3)

8. Herbal Mutton Soup, New World Mutton Soup, #01-55 Bedok Interchange Food Centre, 207 New Upper Changi Rd.

We know folks who won't even go near mutton because of the smell. But they haven't tried the mutton soup here. The broth is both hearty and comforting, while the meat is not tough at all. The chili has a slight Thai-style sweet and spicy tanginess. ($4-10)

9. Hor Fun, Shi Hui Yuan Hor Fun Specialty, #02-33 Mei Ling Food Centre, 159 Mei Chin Rd.

Chicken hor fun done just right. The gravy has just the right amount of salt and isn't too thick, while the chicken slices are tender. But what makes this a real winner are the large, sweet and juicy mushrooms. ($3-5)

10. Kway Chap, 138 Kway Chap & Porridge, #02-138 Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre, 116 Upper Bukit Timah Rd.

This is a tribute to all things porcine, served with tender pork slices, pig skin and pork intestines. The mix of textures is great when eaten with the slippery noodles, salted vegetables and a braised hard-boiled egg all swimming in savory dark soy-based sauce. ($3)

11. Laksa, Wei Yi Laksa & Prawn Noodle, Stall 20 Tanglin Halt Market & Food Centre, 48A Tanglin Halt Rd.

The gravy is rich without being too thick, with just the right amount of fieriness. The serving of chicken strips, prawns and sliced fish cakes is generous too.

If you're all about heat, just throw in more of their yummy sambal. ($3-3.50)

12. Malay Chicken Rice, Lorong Limau Muslim Chicken Rice, Stall 1, 56 Kim Keat Rd.

The serving of fried chicken is generous, the batter light but very crispy, and the rice fragrant and moist. With suitably spicy chunky chili paired with fresh cucumber and lettuce to cool your mouth, we're willing to forgive the mediocrity of the soup. ($3)

13. Mee Rebus, Rahim Muslim Food, #01-02 Ah Seah Eating House, Kovan Centre, 9 Yio Chu Kang Rd.

It's the only hawker we know of that puts satay sauce on mee rebus. The thickness of the gravy is balanced with the nutty taste and slightly chunky texture of the satay sauce. ($2.80)

14. Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle, Lai Heng Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle, #01-62 Ngee Huat Eating House, 51 Toa Payoh Lorong 6

The minced pork is not too soft and has a perfectly chewy texture, while the succulent mushroom slices introduce a rich, savoury element into the dish. ($3-5)

15. Nasi Ayam Penyet, Nur Indah Kitchen, Stall 007 Bedok Corner Food Centre, 1 Bedok Rd.

The crunchy yet tender chicken is a winner, and it goes wonderfully with the rice cooked in chicken stock. The chili is both sweet and sour with a kick, but not overpowering. ($4.50)

16. Nasi Lemak, Sheikh Najib Nasi Lemak, 18 Rowell Rd.

Start with fragrant and plentiful rice, topping that with some chunky and slightly sweet sambal. The chicken drumstick and wings are fried to crisp, golden perfection. There's also omelet and ikan bilis served on a banana leaf-covered plate. ($3.50)

17. Nasi Padang, Hajjah Mona Nasi Padang, #02-166 Geylang Serai Market & Food Centre, 1 Geylang Serai

The power-packed chili padi paste is a perfect match to the ayam bakar which is especially tender with a smoky flavour. The urap - fresh, raw vegetables tossed with bean sprouts and grated coconut - is a favourite among customers, and we can certainly understand why. The crunchiness coupled with the coconut flavour is hugely addictive. ($5-6.50)

18. Or Luak, Riverside Good Food, #01-21 Zion Riverside Food Centre, 86 Zion Rd.

The omelet is fried to perfection. Its crisp, savoury exterior is a lovely contrast to the fresh, succulent oysters. It almost doesn't need the tangy chili sauce. ($4-8)

19. Roti Prata, Riyadh Muslim Food, Stall 12 Soon Soon Lai Eating House, 32 Defu Lane 10

Just slightly bigger than your palm, the prata is not too thick or thin and has a golden brown coat that is crisp. Inside, it is still soft and fluffy. Have it with full-flavoured chicken curry. ($0.70-1.30)

20. Sup Tulang, Al Kader Restaurant, #01-534, 820 Tampines St. 81

Don't let the deep red gravy put you off - this is a fabulous rendition with a strong tomato taste. The meat is tender, and unlike other sup tulangs, there's lots of marrow in the bone just waiting to be slurped. ($6-12)
