The Best Yishun Food and Where to Get Them

What sets dining in Yishun apart is the opportunity to experience authentic flavours in a more local setting, away from the bustling tourist areas. 

Visitors can mingle with residents and sample dishes that may not be as widely available in other parts of the country. It offers numerous stalls offering classic Singaporean dishes like Hainanese chicken rice, laksa, and char kway teow.

Drooling yet? Let’s investigate the best Yishun food you can try and where you can get them.

White bee hoon at White Restaurant 

Address: 22 Jln Tampang, Singapore 758966 (Google Maps)

Contact: +6562572002

Hours: Daily, 10 AM–9.30 PM

Price: $$


White Restaurant, formerly White Bee Hoon, specialises in white bee hoon (thin rice noodles) and zi char (for sharing) dishes. Its signature dish is flavourful with generous portions serving up to four people. 

The restaurant’s sweet and sour pork is also a standout, not overly battered or sweet. We suggest pairing your meal with prawn-paste chicken wings and lime juice for a refreshing experience.

Pro-tip: Arrive early on weekends. Queues start forming by 5 PM.

Fried rice pork chop at Feng Food

If you want a wide selection of Taiwanese dishes with generous portions, head over to Feng Food. It’s a great spot for Taiwanese cuisine enthusiasts.

In particular, Feng Food’s marinated pork chop is bursting with flavour with each ingredient harmoniously balanced. The fried rice, with its chewy grains and delicate egg bits, complements the dish well.

Pro-tip: Be cautious of the signature super spicy chilli here. It lives up to its name.

At this modest eatery in Yishun blk 928, perpetual queues hint at its popularity. Adorned with accolades from local TV food shows, the stall’s laksa is a crowd favourite.

Generous portions make it a satisfying meal. A small bowl, priced at S$2.50, already includes noodles, eggs, fishcakes, beansprouts, and crab sticks. 

The laksa is rich and creamy with the fragrance of coconut milk and savoury dried shrimp, so expect to drink every last drop.

Pro-tip: Self-service is the norm here. 

Beef steak don with truffle ponzu at Oh My Don

Address: 431 Yishun Ave 1, #01-01, Singapore 760431 (Google Maps)

Hours: Daily, 11 AM–9 PM

Price: $


Founded by a former hotel chef, Oh My Don serves up hearty Japanese donburi bowls like Japanese curry meatball don, beef steak don with truffle ponzu (citrus sauce), and salmon don with mentaiko sauce. 

The beef steak don is particularly lip-smacking. It features tender beef steak cubes paired with perfectly textured onsen eggs and fluffy short-grain rice.

For an additional S$2.90, diners can upgrade to a set meal, which includes miso soup and a choice of side dishes such as cheese balls, chicken karaage, or tempura ebi. 

Pro-tip: You can ask the staff to hold the mayonnaise if that’s not your cup of tea.

True to its name, the Old World Bak Kut Teh stall excels in bak kut teh. For just S$6, you can savour generously meaty pork rib soup in a flavoursome, peppery broth.

But do give the mixed pig’s organ fried porridge a try—a tasty blend of offal, sliced pork, and fried beancurd cubes, cooked in dark soy sauce for a subtly sweet aftertaste. The thick porridge boasts a balanced, smoky flavour from expert frying.

Pro-tip: Aside from cash, the stall now accepts PayNow and other e-payment methods.

Deluxe nasi ambeng platter at Coba Coba

Contact: +6563822622

Hours: Daily (except Tuesdays), 7.45 AM–7 PM

Price: $


Coba Coba, a retro-style cafe, offers a comfortable ambience with vintage displays and rustic furniture. Translated, coba coba means “try try,” and that’s exactly what our family of diners did.

We ordered its famous deluxe nasi ambeng (fragrant rice dish), featuring 14 diverse ingredients on a large platter. A fave is the flavourful beef rendang that’s both tender and juicy without any gamey taste.

Pro-tip: The stuffed squid is also a must-try here for its natural sweetness and freshness.

Pak Mandor is a 100% Muslim-owned stall in Yishun that serves delicious nasi lemak. What makes it different from others is its appealing light-green pandan rice that’s as yummy as it’s fragrant.

Its S$3 plate features fluffy, pandan-infused rice with a crispy chicken wing, kuning (yellowtail scad) fish, egg omelette, anchovies, cucumber, peanuts, and homemade sweet and spicy sambal chilli. Budget-friendly and burp-worthy!

Pro-tip: Expect a queue any time of the day, but it moves fast.

Red bean pancake at Munchi Pancakes

Contact: +6583126203

Hours: Daily, 8 AM–8.30 PM

Price: $


Yishun yields a different kind of pancake treat. Munchi Pancakes has become our go-to for deliciously unique red bean cake wrapped in a soft and chewy “skin.”

The filing is quite generous so expect a bit of a mess when you bite into it. Also, its peanut butter pancakes, unlike typical dry ones, are creamy and fragrant due to the shop’s homemade peanut butter. 

Pro-tip: Try the Thai milk tea flavour if you like an ice cream-like taste on your pancake.

Hours: Daily (except Saturdays), 9.30 AM–8 PM

Price: $$


At Chuan Kee Boneless Braised Duck, the S$3 braised duck rice set draws crowds for good reason. It includes braised rice, boneless duck, peanuts, tofu, egg, cucumber, and a thick black sauce. 

The fragrant, glossy rice pairs perfectly with the tender, moist duck meat. Skin and bones are removed for convenience (and unencumbered eating!).

Pro-tip: Enhance the dish with the stall’s homemade chilli for an added kick.

Buttermilk waffles and gelato at No Horse Run Gelato

Contact: +65 9777 3637 

Hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 11 AM–1 AM

Price: $$


No Horse Run in Yishun gets its name from the Hokkien phrase “bo beh zao.” It’s a term from horseracing symbolising the shop’s aim to stand out with unique, locally inspired flavours.

It offers airy, crisp waffles in buttermilk and pandan gula melaka (fragrant leaf with palm sugar) variations along with gelato in flavours like smoked milk or burnt white chocolate. 

Pro-tip: Other “exotic” flavours like green apple Yakult are offered here!

Hours: Daily (except Tuesdays), 6.30 AM–1.30 PM

Price: $


618 Sim Carrot Cake is a small Yishun Ring Road coffee shop. It’s known for a popular dish featuring fried carrot cake with abundant chye poh (preserved radish).

It’s a simple enough meal that will make you appreciate the balance of flavours and textures. We like adding the proprietary spicy chilli for an extra punch to the palate.

Pro-tip: There’s a buzzer system, so you don’t need to wait in line physically.

Wagyu ribeye at Smokin’ Joe

At Yishun Park Hawker Centre, Smokin’ Joe stands out for its use of premium meats like Iberico pork and Wagyu beef. 

Its Signature Smokin’ Joe Steak AU Wagyu Ribeye (200 grams) is served with fries, salad, and gravy. The Wagyu meat is tender and juicy with a gorgeous medium doneness, offering a rich, smokey flavour.

Pro-tip: Dipping the Wagyu beef into the gravy enhances its flavour with a salty, mushroom soup-like aroma.
