11 Food Stalls In Amoy Street Food Centre You Must Try

Built in 1983, Amoy Street Food Centre was built as part of the Singapore plan for urbanisation and to house street hawkers. Situated at the junction of Telok Ayer Street and Amoy Street, the hawker centre has since undergone two major renovations. However, many of its original hawkers are still at the food centre, repeatedly cooking their special dishes day after day. A look at its lunchtime crowd is a testament of its status as a local foodie hotspot! From bowls of sliced fish soup to kaya toasts, here are some of the best stalls you ought to try.

#1 Piao Ji Fish Porridge

Another popular fish soup stall though they tend to have a shorter queue, Piao Ji’s signature dish is the pomfret with fresh prawns soup. They also have other fish soups on the menu which use batang or mackerel. And unlike the red chilli that comes with the usual fish soup, Piao Ji’s unique chilli features fermented beans, chilli padi, and pickled ginger!

#3 Amoy Street Fried Kway Teow

This fried kway teow stall at the corner of the first floor has over 50 years of history, originating from a push cart along Boon Tat Street in the 1960s. Boasting a good texture and consistency, this char kway teow leans more towards the savoury side. The cockles are fresh and the kway teow was moist but not too wet.

#5 Ah Seng (Hai Nam) Coffee

Not many hawker stalls still grill bread over charcoal, but Ah Seng (Hai Nam) Coffee serves up kaya toasts that is still made the true traditional way. You also shouldn’t miss their french toast, which is served with their special home-made kaya. The Hainanese coffee is robust with slightly bitter notes, and surely makes for a great pick-me-up for the CBD workers in the vicinity.

#8 Han Kee Fish Soup

It’s impossible to miss Han Kee at lunchtime thanks to the long queue that it draws, and chances are you’ll notice the snaking line before you even see the stall. The stall’s menu features two types of fish: sliced fish or fish head. Each can be served as plain soup with rice, with bee hoon, or as a porridge and each bowl comes in three sizes. We love the light and clear broth and thick slices of fish!

#11 Hong Kee Beef Noodle

This hawker has been selling beef noodles for almost sixty years, and the beef stock is cooked for 24 hours! Available in both dry and soup versions, the Hainanese style beef noodles here was even listed in the Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2016 and 2017. It seems that most people prefer the dry version with gooey gravy, tender beef slices, slippery noodles and some salted vegetables. The winning gravy is silky and appetising yet not overly salty, making the meal one to slurp down.
