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.
