10 Best Stalls in Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre
For the uninitiated, Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre is home to many famous hawker stalls such as He Zhong Carrot Cake and Sin Chew Satay Bee Hoon. A stone’s throw away from the newly opened Beauty World MRT station, it is about time we unearth this gem of a place!

1. Yong Seng Satay and Western Food

Yong Seng Satay and Western Food
Satay is one of the staples at suppers. The Pork Satay ($0.50 per stick), which Yong Seng Satay and Western Food is famous for, is well-grilled as with their Chicken and Mutton Satay ($0.50 per stick). Slightly charred with juicy pork fat, their pork satay is worth going out of your way for. Do note that Yong Seng stays open until the satay is sold out! #02-123 (Image: Jason Chiang)

2. Mi Casa

Mi Casa
If you haven’t had Spanish cuisine before, this is the place to get started. Mi Casa serves affordable Spanish cuisine ranging from Paella ($4.60 to $5.80) to Roasted Pork Cheek ($8.30), both of which we highly recommend. Juicy and tender, the pork cheek melts in your mouth with every bite and is great for sharing alongside other side dishes. #02-199 (Image: Jason Chiang)
Tasty Thai Hut

3. Tasty Thai Hut

If you are around the area and craving for some affordable and authentic Thai food, Tasty Thai Hut is just the place. We recommend their signature Tom Yum Soup ($5.50 with rice), which comprises of fresh prawns and different types of mushroom. Their Phad Thai ($5) is also not to be missed. #02-131 (Image: OpenRice user quekth)

4. He Zhong Carrot Cake

He Zhong Carrot Cake
Unlike most carrot cake stalls where you choose between black (fried with dark soy sauce) and white (fried with beaten eggs) carrot cake, He Zhong Carrot Cake interestingly serves only the white version. Well-fried with its exterior crispy and interior soft and moist, this humble plate of carrot cake costs only $2 and a must try while you are there. #02-185 (Image: Jason Chiang)

5. Sin Chew Satay Bee Hoon

Sin Chew Satay Bee Hoon
The first thing you will notice while you are at Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre is a continuous queue at Sin Chew Satay Bee Hoon. Known for their satay gravy which has hints of curry and is not overpoweringly sweet, this stall has won several awards and featured in a few makan shows. Besides their all-famous Satay Beehoon ($3.50), another dish we highly recommend trying is their Cuttlefish Kang Kong ($3.50). #02-162 (Image: OpenRice user wenxi)

6. Xie Kee Hokkien Mee

Xie Kee Hokkien Mee
Tucked away at the upper deck of Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre, Xie Kee Hokkien Mee becomes immediately noticeable with the interminable queue. The noodles ($2.50) hold strong flavours of the stock, and what sets Xie Kee apart from other Hokkien Mee stalls is its yellow noodles, which is akin to the flat strips of mee pok. #02-174 (Image: OpenSnap user cptslowyeo)
soyako

7. Soyako

As the name implies, Soyako is known for its soy desserts such as Bean Curd with Rice Balls ($2) and Bean Curd with Peanuts ($2). The rice balls and peanuts are good accompaniments to the bean curd, which has the right amount of sweetness and is so smooth that it really does slide down your throat easily! #02-166 (Image: OpenRice user CEIL JOVEN)

8. Leng Kee Fish Soup

Leng Kee Fish Soup
Here at Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre, Leng Kee serves the Teochew version of fish soup, which is broth-based and clear. The soup here is flavourful, and comes with a generous amount of fresh fish slices and greens. Go for Leng Kee Fish Soup ($3.50 with rice) if you feel like having something light on the stomach! #02-192 (Image: OpenSnap user ktly)

9. 138 Kway Chap and Porridge

The early bird catches the worm but in this case, a delicious plate of kway chap by the uncle of 138 Kway Chap and Porridge. This stall usually sees a queue and is sold out by most afternoons. The silky thin sheets of kway teow goes very well with the slightly herby broth and a side dish of pork belly, egg and innards. Need more? Add on a plate of salted vegetables. #02-138

10. Leng Kee BBQ

Leng Kee BBQ
Leng Kee BBQ specializes in BBQ Chicken Wings ($1.20 per piece) – and for good reason too. The wings are well-grilled, its skin glazed with a thin layer of oil so that it comes out slightly crispy while the meat remains tender. Here, the chilli sauce packs a punch with spicy and slightly zesty notes. #02-127 (Image: Jason Chiang) Bukit Timah Food Centre, 51 Upper Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 588215
