Other than A Noodle Story who has recently been given the Michelin Bib Gourmand, Amoy Street Food Centre is home to countless of other hidden gems which many office crowds flock to for lunch every day. While it might be difficult to maneuver through the crowds during the lunch frenzy, these hawker stalls are worth the queue to drive all your Monday or any-working-day-of-the-week’s blues away. Don’t have a game plan yet? Well, here’s 10 Amoy-zing Hawker Stalls From Amoy Street Food Centre That Gives You More Options for Lunch. We have got you covered.
1. A Noodle Story
Crowned as the next gen’s noodle and also the receiver of the Michelin Bib Gourmand, a bowl of noodles at A Noodle Story might be slightly pricier than your average Wanton Mee, but is definitely worth the money spent. These hipster bowls of noodles are a fusion of the old and the new, using ingredients Hong Kong-style wontons, ramen spring egg, tender cha-shu and a crispy potato-wrapped prawn which looks like a Singaporean-styled ramen instead.

Han Kee Fish Soup is widely known for their fish soup and porridge, which looks unassuming at first but comes packed with a punch.

5. Hong Kee Beef Noodles
Let’s admit it. Amoy Street Food Centre has no shortage of good food, and Hong Kee Beef Noodles is the perfect example of that statement. The owner has been selling beef noodles since 50 years back (they still have a newspaper clipping from 23 years ago!), dishing out delectable bowls of beef kway teow that are absolutely satisfying. They have also been awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand!

Sap Thai Food is not just the average hawker stall dishing out Thai food staples in zichar style. In fact, they even have their own bottled chilis available for sale periodically. The hawker stall is famed for their local a la carte Thai dishes that brings you back to the bustling streets of Thailand with every bite – without having to pay for the airfare, that is.

7. Hoo Kee Bak Chang
We all have days when we don’t feel like stuffing ourselves silly for us, and that’s where Hoo Kee Bak Chang comes to the rescue. Since these morsels of rice dumplings are not very filling in nature, they are perfect for anyone who wants something light for lunch. Plus, a lot of effort goes into perfecting each and every Bak Chang – from marinating the right cut of meat to painstakingly cleaning each bamboo leaf which makes them so popular with the crowd. You might even have to order them days in advance!
Amoy Street Food Centre, #01-08
8. Li Xin Nasi Lemak
Li Xing Nasi Lemak is known for its snaking queues in the afternoon and is usually sold out before 1pm. Many people flock to this Nasi Lemak stall for their fragrant and plump coconut rice and chicken wings that are fried to a gorgeous shade of golden brown – I would eat again in a heartbeat.

9. Ah Liang Ipoh Hor Fun
What makes the Hor Fun in this stall stand out lies in its use of herbal spices in the gravy, which made us mop off every bit of noodle doused in this addictive condiment. The dish is also served accompanied with deep-fried fish dumplings, garnished with bok choy and green chili.
