Lai Hin Fish Ball Kway Teow Mee
You can never go wrong with Lai Hin Fish Ball Kway Teow Mee as it is the busiest stall in the Bukit Merah Central Food Centre during lunch hour. Stall offers fish ball noodle in soup or dry at $3.50, $4.50 or $5.50, with 8 choices of noodles – Mee Kia, Mee Pok, Yellow Noodle, Kway Teow, Mee Tai Mak, Bee Hoon, Tang Hoon and Mee Suah.
The bowl of noodle came with generous of ingredients including fish balls, fish cake slices, fish dumplings, pork slices and minced meat. Garnished with fried shallot and chopped spring onions. Noodle was smooth and springy with tossed of pork lard oil, vinegar, light, soy, sesame and chili sauces. Fish balls, fish dumpling and fish cake were fresh and bouncy.

Day Night Fried Kway Teow
Day Night Fried Kway Teow is a fantastic food vendor serving Fried Kway Teow for more than 30 years. It is also one of the stalls with the longest queues during peak meal hours. Serving 2 portions of Fried Kway Teow at $3.50 or $4.50.
Their Fried Kway Teow have the right amount of moisture for me using slender Pad Thai style of Kway Teow with yellow noodle. Their smokiness and Wok Hei added to the dish made it famous. Dish is slightly sweet and served with fish cake slices, fresh cockle, Lup Cheong (Chinese sausage), chives, sprout and egg. Garnished with bits of crispy lard and a wedge of calamansi to cut through the greasiness.

Fong Sheng Fried Kway Teow
Fong Sheng Fried Kway Teow is another popular competitor stall at Bukit Merah Central Food Centre serving a good version of fried kway teow. Especially for those who prefer their fried kway teow to be wetter and on the sweeter side. They use the broader type of kway teow which don’t break easily and are more slurpy. Pricing is the same as their competitor with $3.50 or $4.50 for a larger portion.
The char kway teow is silky smooth, glistening wet with moisture, and sweet without being overpowering thanks to the Wok Hei and excellent balance of ingredients, with plenty of cockles, lap Cheong, fish cake slices and egg. It’s pretty wonderful, with the greasiness and egginess of a well-fried char kway teow while preserving some of the dish’s signature sharpness, However, the dish was much healthier without pork lards, but some might not like it due to the lack of oily aromatic fragrance.
Fong Sheng Fried Kway Teow Address: 163 Bukit Merah Central Food Centre, #02-13, Singapore 150163 Opening Hours: 8am – 2pm (Closed on Sat and Sun)

Guan Huat Yong Tau Foo
You can have Yong Tau Foo fixed at Guan Huat Yong Tau Foo stall with your choice of noodle, in clear soup or dry, or in laksa gravy. Stall offers an old traditional style in their Yong Tau Foo but strives to make it great in their soup bases.
The soup is mild in saltiness and has a natural sweetness of anchovies’ flavors. The ingredients are fresh and succulent especially the fish balls and Tau Foo. You are provided with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce that complement well with the food.
Their Laksa gravy is another crowd’s favorite that is fragrant and rich in coconut flavors. It is fiery and tasted authentic. The only downside is the crispy pieces are served together in a bowl and are soften by the gravy. Nevertheless, the laksa still taste great and savory.

Soon Huat Lor Mee Laksa
The standard seems to have dropped for the Lor mee at Soon Huat Lor Mee Laksa stall. Portion of the noodle was generous, which I have the combination of yellow noodle and bee hoon. The consistency of the gravy was good but lack in flavor as it was too bland. The dish is served with ngo hiang, braised pork belly, crispy flour and fish nugget. Topped with a healthy dash of vinegar and your choice of sambal chili, cut chili, spring onion and garlic. Its value for money and still a decent bowl of Lor Mee.
