Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodle, #01-64

This is basically the next best to the ever-famous 85 Fengshan Bak Chor Mee, albeit with a shorter queue and waiting time. If you’re a fan of minced meat noodles, slurp up a hot bowl on a cool morning. It’s absolutely shiok!

Chris Kway Chap, #01-80

Love pig’s intestines and all the innards with your kway? Chris Kway Chap’s fans will queue for at least 30 minutes during the peak lunch hour for a satisfying meal. Its sweet and savoury flavours, deliciously braised ingredients and reasonable prices make this a must-eat when at Bedok!

Chai Chee Cai Tou Guo #01-55

We hardly see these carrot cake fingers these days. Enjoy these old school treats that are simple, delicious and finger-licking good, if we may say so! Deep-fried to golden brown perfection, you can order carrot cake sticks, carrot cake pieces and yam cakes too. All great as breakfast with Kopi or a mid-day snack!

You Zha Kueh, #01-43

If you ask for reviews for these You Tiao (Dough Fritters), Ham Jim Peng and Butterfly, you will hear feedback like “crispy”, “not oily”, “generous portion of fillings” and “goes great with kopi!”. We hear some Bedok residents proclaim that these are some of the best You Tiaos in Singapore – you definitely need to try and discover for yourself! Uncle is friendly too, and because of their good food, do expect to queue on weekend mornings.

Bedok foodie tip: Enjoy these freshly made You Tiaos with the kopi from the smiley Aunty next door. Start your day with a shiok breakfast! Also, this You Tiao stall at Bedok operates just twice a week now - on Tuesdays and Fridays only, so get ready to queue to satisfy your cravings!

Rui Xing Coffee Stall, #01-42

Expectedly, we had to add Aunty’s coffee stall here. Aunty is usually the one who takes the orders and handles the cash, while Uncle brews the traditional Kopi, Teh and everything in between. The strong aromatic coffee is what draws returning drinkers – start your day strong! The best pairing: You Tiaos from You Zha Kuah stall just next to it!

Hon Ni Kitchen, #01-07

This unassuming food stall located at the Block 216 Bedok North Food Centre has a queue for 2 reasons: Nasi Lemak at just $2 and a hearty meal that goes great with their homemade sambal chilli sauce. Definitely one of the cheapest lunch options when you are in the neighbourhood!

Ah Fu Prawn Noodle, #01-78

If you take a sip of the flavourful prawn broth, you can totally tell it’s been simmered for hours and it’s worth all the perspiration if you’re tucking in on a sunny day. Queues are expected even in the mornings when folks stream in to order their breakfast. These prawn noodles sell out quite quickly too, so if you’re planning to have it for lunch, visit early!
