Underrated Food: Top Stalls in Changi Village Hawker Center

Planning to explore East Singapore on a budget? No worries! 

This region in Singapore has some amazing free attractions, such as East Coast Park and Changi Bay Point. As for dining, you have an affordable option too: Changi Village Hawker Center. 

Located on the northern tip of Changi, this hawker center is home to countless stalls serving local favorites like nasi lemak and goreng pisang. If you don’t know which stalls are worth trying, read on because I’ve narrowed down the list for you!

The Best Stalls to Try in Changi Village Hawker Center

Weng Kee Original Taste Ipoh Hor Fun

Location: 01-19
Operating Hours

  • Monday to Friday—10:30 am to 11 pm
  • Saturday and Sunday—8 am to 12 am 

Contact Number: +6565456425

If you’re craving hor fun (a dish featuring wide, flat rice noodles), then Weng Kee Original Taste Ipoh Hor Fun is the best place to go. 

The hor fun served here is smooth and soft, and it also comes with a chicken cutlet that’s both crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. 

And don’t even get me started with the broth! It’s thick and coats everything well, so every bite or slurp gives you an explosion of savory goodness (with a bit of spice sprinkled in); I can’t get enough of it!

Amigo Chicken Chop Hor Fun

Location: 01-34 
Operating Hours

  • Wednesday to Monday—11 am to 10 pm
  • Closed on Tuesday

Amigo is another wonderful spot to get your hor fun fix. The chicken is wrapped in a crispy batter, the rice noodles are soft, and the gravy is savory and starchy; all of that makes for a well-rounded meal. 

To make your bowl even more delicious, I recommend adding chilies for an extra kick. You can also order dumplings or crispy wontons instead of chicken pieces if that’s what you prefer. 

DaoXiang

Location: 01-30
Operating Hours

  • Wednesday to Monday—10 am to 8 pm
  • Closed on Tuesday

Contact Number: +6586131378

Just opened in March 2023, DaoXiang has already become a favorite of several hawker patrons. This stall specializes in Peranakan cuisine, and its most popular dish is sambal petai (stink beans) with prawns and rice. 

I really like the sambal petai because while it’s spicy, it also has a bit of sweetness, which balances everything well. Aside from sambal petai, other dishes you might want to try include sesame oil chicken, curry chicken, and prawn fritters.

Wong Hing Kitchenette

Location: 01-43
Operating Hours

  • Friday to Wednesday—11 am to 3 pm, 5 to 9 pm
  • Closed on Thursday

Craving Cantonese-style dishes? Wong Hing Kitchenette has the fix for you!

This stall serves up some of the best Cantonese-style classics, such as fried mee with bitter gourd and pork ribs and bean sauce sliced fish hor fun. Their dishes have a slightly bitter taste due to the bitter gourd, but you can request to exclude it if you want.

The best part about this stall is that the prices are affordable, so you can order several servings if you’re really hungry. 

Bedok Beef Kway Teow

Location: 01-45
Operating Hours

  • Friday to Wednesday—9:30 am to 9 pm
  • Closed on Thursday

As the name suggests, this stall is best known for its beef kway teow (a stir-fried noodle dish), which is really good. The noodles are springy, the meat pieces tender, and the broth packed with umami flavor; the vegetables also add a bit of sweetness to the dish.

The stall owners will also give you a generous amount of meat, so you’ll really be full and satisfied when eating here. If you want to order side dishes, I recommend getting a serving of pork belly satay (BBQ skewer). 

Jason’s Place

Location: 01-66
Operating Hours

  • Thursday to Tuesday—12 to 9 pm
  • Closed on Wednesday

Contact Number: +6581008823

If you’re in the mood for a few sticks of satay, Jason’s Place is where you should go. 

You have several meat options, namely chicken, beef, pork, and mutton, so feel free to order everything you want. No matter which you choose, you can enjoy a perfectly grilled satay; you can still taste the char when you bite into it!

The peanut sauce is also worth noting. It has a peanut base and pineapple extract, making the sauce sweet and tangy at the same time; it works really well with the savory, charred satay.

Charlie’s Corner

Location: 01-70
Operating Hours

  • Tuesday to Friday—2:30 to 11:30 pm
  • Saturday and Sunday—12:30 to 11:30 pm

Contact Number: +6565431754

Charlie’s Corner is hard to miss in the hawker center. After all, it’s designed to resemble a Western diner, so how can you overlook it?

As you can guess from its aesthetics and vibes, Charlie’s Corner specializes in Western cuisine. You can get an American-style rib-eye steak or even a tenderloin fillet steak; if you prefer a less heavy meal, you can order the fish (or scallops) and chips. 

To wash down everything you’ve eaten, be sure to buy a bottle of beer as well. 

W Kitchen Western Food

Location: 01-33
Operating Hours

  • Friday to Tuesday—12 to 8 pm
  • Closed on Wednesday and Thursday

Another dining spot that serves Western dishes is W Kitchen Western Food. My go-to order here is the chicken teriyaki; it’s affordable, and it already provides a generous portion of chicken, fries, and a side salad. 

Other dishes that you might want to try are lamb chops, garlic chicken, and chicken wings with rice. All these dishes already come with a side of fries and salad, so you’re getting the most of your money; you can also order more side dishes if you want.

Mizzy Corner Nasi Lemak

Location: 01-23/26
Operating Hours: Open 24 hours

Generally speaking, Changi Village Hawker Center is known for its nasi lemak (rice cooked in coconut milk), and one of the great nasi lemak spots here is Mizzy Corner Nasi Lemak. 

Established in 1997, this stall serves nasi lemak with marinated chicken wings, fried fish, or beef rendang (dry curry). There’s also a vegetarian set if you don’t eat meat, and if you’re with a group, you can order a platter that already includes wings and fish fillets.

My favorite part is the sambal that comes with your order. It adds a spicy kick to the dishes, but at the same time, it’s sweet; it’s so addictive to eat!

International Muslim Food Stall Nasi Lemak

Location: 01-03
Operating Hours

  • Monday—6 to 11 pm
  • Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday—7 am to 2 pm, 6 pm to 12 am
  • Wednesday—6 am to 2 pm, 6 pm to 12 am
  • Saturday—7 am to 2 pm
  • Sunday—5 to 10 pm

Contact Number: +6584006882

Another stall that serves great nasi lemak is the International Muslim Food Stall. This stall has been around since the 1980s, and in that time, it has garnered loyal patronage; that alone should be enough proof that its nasi lemak is worth trying.

What I like about the nasi lemak here is that the rice is tender, and the chicken wings aren’t overly greasy. The sambal is also really great: it’s spicy and sweet, and it also has the umami-savoriness from the anchovies. 

Changi Famous Nasi Lemak

Location: 01-28
Operating Hours: Open 24 hours

Yet another amazing nasi lemak stall in Changi Village Hawker Center is Changi Famous Nasi Lemak. 

This stall has five meal options, and the bestseller is the one with chicken wings. The wings are perfectly fried, while the meat is tender and juicy. 

For more heat and a bit of sweetness, you can add dollops of sambal to your chicken and fluffy rice. 

The best part is that this stall is actually open for 24 hours. So, you can come here whenever you’re craving nasi lemak—even if it’s already past midnight. 

Sari Bistari Changi Village Famous Ayam Penyet

Location: 01-71
Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday—10:30 am to 10 pm
Contact Number: +6593640293

Ayam penyet is a delicious Indonesian dish comprising fried chicken that’s squeezed with a pestle to make it softer and sambal for added spice. It’s such a hearty dish, and if you’re craving it, head to Sari Bistari Changi Village Famous Ayam Penyet ASAP. 

This stall gives you a hefty piece of chicken, as well as a few sides like cucumber slices, fried tofu, and tempeh. Because of this, you’ll be full and satisfied in no time, and you’ll get the most out of your money.

There’s also a fish dish if you’re looking for other options. 

Ho Guan Satay Bee Hoon

Location: 01-61
Operating Hours:

  • Thursday to Sunday—Open 24 hours
  • Closed on Tuesday and Wednesday

Enjoy a plate of bee hoon (rice vermicelli noodles) at Ho Guan Satay Bee Hoon. The owners of this stall put a lot of love and care into every plate, and you can feel that in every bite. 

I like how the noodles are springy and how the rich satay sauce coats everything perfectly. There are also freshly ground spices and peanuts for added crunch. 

A plate of bee hoon here is reasonably priced, and it already comes with a sizeable portion—isn’t that great?

Olden Street Bak Kut Teh

Location: 01-131
Operating Hours

  • Friday to Wednesday—11 am to 10:30 pm
  • Closed on Thursday

Contact Number: +6590353500

Olden Street Bak Kut Teh specializes in Chinese-style bak kut teh dishes (pork ribs cooked in broth), but they also have other options on their menu. A few examples include pork tenderloin soup, pig liver soup, and slow-cooked pork belly. 

There are also seafood options available. I particularly like the chili crab; the spicy sauce and the sweet meat are a match made in heaven. 

You can even order lobster here! The only catch is that you have to order in advance because the owners only serve fresh seafood. 

Guang Xing Original Taste Fish Head Bee Hoon

Location: 01-31
Operating Hours

  • Monday to Saturday—11:30 am to 4 pm
  • Closed on Sunday

What I like about this stall is that the dishes are the perfect examples of what comfort food is. The signature dish, fish head bee hoon, has a hearty, savory broth and a fresh fish head; it’s the perfect food to eat during cold, rainy days.

If you don’t want soup-based dishes, they also have a fried fish head with sambal. This is ideal if you want to eat something spicy. 

Changi Village Fried Hokkien Mee

Location: 01-53
Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday—11 am to 9 pm

If fried Hokkien mee (another kind of stir-fried noodle dish) is what you want, you can’t go wrong with Changi Village Fried Hokkien Mee.

The Hokkien mee served here is a bit on the dry side, but squeezing lime juice adds zest and sourness to it. You can also add a spoonful of sambal if you want it spicy. 

This stall offers several size options, so if you have a companion, you can choose a bigger place to share the Hokkien mee with them.

King Grouper Fish Soup

Location: 01-64
Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday—9:30 am to 9:30 pm
Contact Number: +6582226824

If you’re looking for a great seafood spot in Changi Village Hawker Center, King Grouper Fish Soup might pique your interest.

King Grouper Fish Soup has actually been producing and distributing giant groupers for 20 years, and they also have stalls in various hawker centers. 

The signature dish is the titular fish soup; the soup is hot and hearty, and the fish slices included are fresh and meaty. For a more satisfying dining experience, I recommend ordering plain rice to accompany your soup. 

Mei Xiang Goreng Pisang

Location: 01-51 
Operating Hours

  • Wednesday to Monday—10:30 am to 8 pm
  • Closed on Tuesday

If you just want a snack to nibble on, then you might want to check out Mei Xiang Goreng Pisang.

As the name suggests, this stall serves goreng pisang or banana fritters. What I love about the goreng pisang here is that the batter is perfectly thick and not greasy at all. 

There are also a few options available. You have the classic banana fritters, but there are also sweet potato, taro, and pandan-infused tapioca alternatives; all goreng pisang variations have their own distinct flavors, so be sure to try them all.

Million Star Fried Banana

Location: 01-49
Operating Hours

  • Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday—11 am to 7 pm
  • Closed on Monday, Wednesday to Friday

Contact Number: +6590838388

Do you really like banana fritters? Then, you should check out Million Star Fried Banana. 

This stall has all your favorite fried banana snacks. There’s the classic goreng pisang, but you can also buy banana balls, fried taro or tapioca, sweet potato fries, and rice cakes with sweet potatoes. 

You might see a queue when you stop by this stall, but don’t worry; the stall owners work fast, so it will be your turn in no time.

Changi Village Dessert House

Location: 01-66
Operating Hours

  • Thursday to Tuesday—11:30 am to 10:30 pm
  • Closed on Wednesday

If you’re craving a sweet treat, you better head to Changi Village Dessert House because you might find your next craving there. 

The bestselling dish is the Commando Dessert, which is essentially a bowl of shaved ice with toppings of red tea jellies and longan. Fun fact about this dessert: it’s named like that because it was served to the SAF Commandos in Hendon Camp for two years.

Other shaved ice desserts you might like are the Red Ruby and Power Cendol. 

Makan Melaka Cendol

Location: 01-2046
Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday—8 am to 8:30 pm

Cendol (shaved ice with coconut cream, palm sugar, and pandan leaves) is one of my favorite desserts ever, and if it’s yours too, then you’ll love Makan Melaka Cendol. 

This stall offers the classic cendol that we all know and love, but you can add other kinds of toppings if you’re feeling adventurous. I really like the red bean, corn, and durian combination; it sounds strange, but they work surprisingly well together.

Mei Lin Dessert

Location: 01-57
Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday—11:30 am to 10 pm

Another dessert stall in this hawker center that I highly recommend is Mei Lin Dessert.

Cendol is unsurprisingly a bestselling dish here, and so is ice kachang (shaved ice topped with ice cream and other ingredients). I love adding as many toppings as I can to these!

Another treat you might like is the red tea jelly with longan and almonds. It’s not overly sweet, making it perfect for people who don’t really like desserts but desperately want to eat something cold to cool down. 

Changi Village Carrot Cake

Location: 01-13
Operating Hours

  • Tuesday to Thursday, Saturday and Sunday—7 am to 3 pm
  • Closed on Monday and Friday

For most people, carrot cake is a dessert, but at Changi Village Carrot Cake, you’ll get a savory version instead. 

This savory carrot cake looks like scrambled eggs (eggs are a big part of this dish). Of course, there are also chunks of carrots and a sprinkling of green onions. 

You can add more sauce and chili if you want a spicy kick.

If you’re visiting the hawker center first thing in the morning, I recommend ordering this fried carrot cake for breakfast.
