• Fei Fei Wantan Noodles:.Fei Fei’s helpings although small, are dedicately cooked and flavoured with a suitable amount chilli and gravy. It is served in the traditional rooster bowls that wanton mee hawkers from the past used. You will finish the delicious dish in four to five mouthfuls but the taste is worth the tease. It is fantastic especially if you are on a food tour and geared up for a day out trying the best of different kinds of Singaporean foods. You can also enjoy your food beyond the shelter of the coffeeshop and go alfresco with only the trees above your head and delight in the glorious sun unique to this region of the world.

  • Katong Laksa (4 Stores): Hailed as Singapore’s national dish by its loyalist camp, laksa, a humble dish of rice noodles, shrimps, cockles, fish cake and chilli paste in thick coconut-based broth has won over fans including expatriates, visiting dignitaries and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. But there’s laksa, and there’s Katong laksa. The Katong variety differs from its counterparts in that it is served only with a spoon (no chopsticks required), and mostly consists of rice noodles, cockles and shrimps. But of greater interest is that the dish can’t be separated from the territorial tussle that’s come to be known as the ‘Katong Laksa Wars’, with four stalls along the same stretch of road claiming to be the best/the original - the Real McCoy.
