Located in the west of Singapore, Jurong West 505 Food Centre may not be the most accessible, but nevertheless boasts a profile of Michelin-recommended stalls, and well-known names that attract foodies from across the island. This hawker centre comes with a wet market, where you can get your groceries all in one place. There will be large crowds during the weekends, so be prepared to wait around for a table, and join the snaking queues for perhaps, your to-be new found favourites.
After the Kok Kee brand was sold to JUMBO group, this stall was renamed ‘Wai Kee Wanton Noodles’ to avoid confusion with said brand. This stall has been around for 30 years, and still continues to attract long queues during mealtimes. Their flavourful lard-based sauce is paired with thick springy egg noodles, and topped with charsiew, juicy wantons and blanched vegetables. Unlike the usual wanton mee stall, they don’t provide green chilli - instead, stir in some of their slightly spicy chilli sauce to amp up the flavours!

Opening Hours: 7am - 12pm (or until sold out)
A stall that specialises in one dish? Most of the time, you know that they’re really good at what they do. This stall sells only fried white carrot cake, which is cubed radish cakes stir fried in beaten eggs to give it an aromatic wok-hei. This hearty hawker classic can be a filling meal for one, and also a sharing plate for a group to bond over. They are open only in the mornings till mid-noon and almost always have a queue, so make sure to be there bright and early!
