Check out these five best hawker stalls in the east of Singapore according to the recommendations of Food King and NOC host Aiken Chia (@aikenchia) in no particular order, and where you can find them! (Scroll all the way down to watch video!)


Popular wanton noodle stall known for its potent, fiery red chilli sauce. Dunman Road’s Char Siew Wanton Mee features handmade wanton, slices of char siew (BBQ pork), chunky pieces of deep-fried pork lard and a homemade egg noodles that’s slightly thicker than the usual mee kia we see in regular wanton noodles, great for soaking up the blend of sesame oil and soy sauce that it comes in. Adding the sharp, spicy chilli sauce is almost mandatory as it works wonder for this dish. 3 out of 3 Xi Guay Ong stars.
Dunman Charsiew Wanton Mee is located at 271 Onan Road, #02-19 Dunman Food Centre, Singapore 424768. Open 12pm – 8:30pm (Tue to Sun); closed on Mon & Thu.


Bedok North 85 Fried Oyster, Bedok
This prominent hawker stall with adjoining units offer the local delight fried oyster omelette ($4) that’s made from a mixture consisting of egg and a high ratio of tapioca starch. The egg batter is quickly pan-fried to a crisp with oysters and pork lard, before garnishing with coriander leaves and served with a sharp and tangy chilli sauce. Unfortunately, this dish isn’t meant for everyone as cooked oysters (as well as the starchy fried eggs) has a sort of acquired taste, hence this stall did not receive any Xi Guay Ong stars. Here’s what they think:

Bedok North 85 Fried Oyster is located at 85 Bedok North Street 4, #01-09/10 85 Fengshan Centre, Singapore 460089. Open 11am – 11pm (Mon to Sun).


The smooth porridge with an optimally thick consistency featured at Chai Chee is a result of long hours of cooking and simmering, giving it a well-rounded flavour without going overboard with the salt. The crowd-favourite Meat Ball & Pork Porridge ($3.50) comes with generous amount of sliced lean pork and chunks of sesame oil-seasoned minced pork, topped with pieces deep-fried ‘you tiao’ (deep-fried Chinese dough stick) and chopped spring onions. Watch the video below for egg p0rn. 2 out of 3 Xi Guay Ong stars.
