JIN FENG FRIED BEE HOON & NASI LEMAK SET
Stall #01-22. Open Sun-Fri, 6am-1pm (or until sold out). The nasi lemak (50 cents for each serving of rice) is fragrant and lavished with loads of coconut milk, so it’s no wonder a snaking queue forms daily for it. Select from a mouth-watering array of dishes – fried egg, sambal eggplant and fishcake, to name a few – but don’t miss the succulent chicken thigh cutlet ($1.60) smeared with mayo and dusted with crunchy cereal powder. Yummy!
HE XIN BAN MIAN ZI JIA Stall #01-45. Open Sun-Fri, 8.30am-7pm.
We were surprised to hear that the Chicken Chop Noodles ($3.50) are this ban mian stall’s bestseller, but it made sense once we tried it for ourselves. The popcorn chicken is a show-stealer – well-seasoned and deep-fried in an impossibly light, crispy batter, while a bowl of al dente noodles in starchy, savoury gravy plays back-up. Our tip: Have the ban mian ($2.50), whose clear broth is flecked with minced pork, and add a side of the popcorn chicken ($4) to share with your lunch kaki.
