The Ultimate Bedok Food Guide, Singapore!
1. Hock Hai (Hong Lim) Curry Chicken Noodle
An old-timer at Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre, Hock Hai (Hong Lim) Curry Chicken Noodle is hands-down one of the best places to get Curry Chicken Noodles. The curry has a wonderfully rich texture, containing a perfect mix of lemak and spice while not being too thick! The consistency is more similar to Laksa, and is more palatable and easier to slurp than curry.
Each bowl of noodles comes with a generous helping of ingredients, including thinly-sliced strips of tau pok (fried beancurd) and potato chunks that are well-soaked in the savoury curry. Thick, moist cuts of chicken breast meat complement the curry perfectly and gives a clean bite to the strong flavour of the spices.

Operating Hours: Mon – Sun: 9.30am – 10.30pm
If you love Chee Cheong Fun, Yummy offers a unique rendition of the dish, serving it together with freshly fried Yong Tau Foo. Their handmade Chee Cheong Fun is smooth and has a nice bite, perfectly complementing the sweet and spicy sauces. The best part is the crispy fried beancurd skin that tops every plate, giving the dish a satisfying crunch.

3. Hill Street Char Kway Teow
While there’s certainly no lack of Char Kway Teow stalls in Singapore, Hill Street Char Kway Teow is a personal favourite of ours! This particular version is absolutely worth having a cheat day for, with the crispy pork lard and firm lup cheong providing a nice contrasting texture to the silky noodles. The dish is moist, well-fried with a strong wok hei flavour, and carries a wonderful aroma which makes it impossible to resist. Be prepared for a long queue, but rest assured it will be well worth your time!

Additionally, they come at an affordable price of just $2 for 12 pieces!

10. 75 Ah Balling Peanut Soup
Last but not least, 75 Ah Balling Peanut Soup in Fengshan Market serves the best of Singapore’s classic local desserts – Tang Yuan! The traditional mochi-esque balls come in a variety of flavours, including Peanut, Red bean, Yam, Black sesame and Green tea. Customers can choose from three soup bases to pair with these bite-sized delights – Peanut, Almond milk and Ginger.
Our personal favourite is the Peanut Tang Yuan with Ginger soup, the creamy, nutty peanut filling contrasting perfectly with the spicy, refreshing ginger soup. Queues can get long, so be prepared to wait a little to try this nostalgic dessert!
