8 Underrated Makan Places In Serangoon That Proves It’s More Than Just Chomp Chomp


Last Updated on 2018-05-08 , 12:50 pm

For those who are not staying in Serangoon, the one thing that comes into our minds when we think about eating at Serangoon is – Chomp Chomp Food Centre.

I mean, Chomp Chomp Food Centre is everything great. In fact, it’s the perfect place for a good supper, or a fuss-free venue to gather when you are meeting up with friends. We all love hawker food, right? That’s what makes us Singaporeans anyway.

But when we factor that out, there are in fact, tons of other unexplored food places in Serangoon that are equally good as Chomp Chomp – if not better.

So here we are, bringing you a list of eight underrated makan places in Serangoon.

1. Truffle Wanton Noodles – Bee Kee Wanton Noodles

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Yes, you read that right. Instead of following the tradition like other Wanton Noodle Stalls, Bee Kee Wanton Noodles decided to bring the fusion of Asian and Western food culture to the masses.

For S$6, this glorious bowl of Truffle Wanton Noodles was a treat. Packed with ingredients like boiled and fried wanton, flame-torched char siew and springy noodles, this bowl of Wanton noodles proved its worth. The taste of the truffle was mild but still apparent.

Address: Chuen Kee Restaurant 2 Lorong Lew Lian Singapore 531002
Opening Hours: Tues to Sun: 7:30am – 2:30pm Closed on Monday

2. Roast Pork and Char Siew Rice – Kim Heng Roasted Delights


Touted as one of the best Roast Pork and Char Siew Rice in town, Kim Heng Roasted Delights never fails to make their patrons head back for more. The stall churns out excellent roasted delights – roast pork (that has a satisfying crunch to them with every bite), char siew, roast duck – you name it, they have it all.

Address: 14 Serangoon Avenue 4, #01-88 Singapore 550214
Opening Hours: Daily: 8:30am – 7pm

3. Pig Organ Soup – Soon Huat Pig’s Organ Soup


Packed full of pig organ precipitates, the Pig Organ Soup from Soon Huat Pig’s Organ Soup is impressive, with a strong and flavorful broth that did justice to its buzzing popularity. For those who aren’t too used to having pig innards, the ones here were well-cleaned, so it does not have any foul aftertaste that lingers – perfect for you to conquer your fears at this stall.

Address: Serangoon Garden Market and Food Centre 49A Serangoon Garden Way #01-42
Operating Hours: Tue – Sun: 9:20am – 4pm Closed on Mondays

 4. Teo Chew Porridge – Ah Seah TeoChew Porridge


All Teo Chews love their porridge because we deem it as our ultimate comfort food. It’s non-greasy, and easy to savour – especially when we are craving for something light but hearty. Ah Seah Teochew Porridge has long established its roots in Serangoon, and many patrons flock to this unassuming stall for dishes like their homemade fish cakes, pickled vegetables and braised meats.

Address: 31 Teck Chye Terrace Singapore 545731
Opening Hours: Daily: 11am – 12am

5. Dim Sum – Yi Dian Xin Hong Kong Dim Sum


Yes, haters, we know. This Dim Sum restaurant is nearer to Kovan MRT Station, but we decided to add it in since it is still in the premises of Serangoon. And if you are ever in need of a dim sum fix, Yi Dian Xin Hong Kong Dim Sum should be your go-to stall.

The dim sum stall has garnered a strong following for their steamed carrot cake, which was a refreshing change from the fried ones we usually see. Their Mushroom Siew Mai and Har Gao dim sum, too, were sufficiently stuffed with meat. Our only gripe was that the skin on the Har Gao was a little thick.


Address: 1012 Upper Serangoon Road Singapore 534752
Opening Hours: Daily: 7am – 6pm Closed on alternate Tuesdays

6. Kway Chap – Garden Street Kway Chap

Garden Street Kway Chap got its name after a commercial pilot took after over his father’s place in the stall to continue his legacy. Fortunately, the standard still remains the same. The duck braised sauce is not overly salty and is good enough to enjoy the kway on its own, while the tender pork belly just melts in your mouth.

Address: Serangoon Garden Market and Food Centre 49A Serangoon Garden Way, #01-21 Singapore 559944
Operating hours: Tues to Sun: 8am – 3pm Closed on Mondays

7. Nasi Lemak – Aliff Nasi Lemak

What makes the Nasi Lemak at Aliff Nasi Lemak different would lie in the rice used. The Nasi Lemak stall uses basmati rice and freshly squeezed coconut milk for their rice, which is lighter on the palate as compared to Jasmine white rice – and less sinful too. The ingredients are fresh and extremely affordable. At just S$3, you can expect to find ingredients like Ikan Kuning, Chicken Wing, Luncheon Meat, Ikan Bilis and Sweet Chilli.

Address: Serangoon Garden Market Stall 27, 49A Serangoon Gardens Way Singapore 555945
Opening Hours: Tues to Sun: 7am – 7pm Close on Mondays


8. Claypot Chicken – Lau Wang Claypot Delights


Lau Wang Claypot Delights specializes in serving meats in claypot and has a wide selection in its menu. One of its signature dishes lie in its clay pot sesame chicken that is generously doused in sesame oil – the perfect comfort food for a rainy afternoon.

Address: 263 Serangoon Central Dr Singapore 550263 
Opening Hours: Tues to Sun: 10am – 10pm Closed on Monday
