Good Food that You CAN'T MISS when in Yishun/Khatib

They say Oldie is Goodies
What say you?

Yishun is considered as a mature estate with an older demographic,
but old does not mean its bad.

 Cos most of the local good food are located here.
Of cos this list is not comprehensive enough, please feel free to leave a comment if you have any other good food to share!

Hope this post will not make you hungry!


The Famous Chicken Rice @ Yishun Central Block 925
Nearest MRT: Yishun
Blk 925 Yishun Central 1 #01-249 s760925 (Yishun)


 

The queue for this chicken rice is super long during meal times and sold out after 8pm.
The chicken rice is not oily, fragrance and al-dente.

The Chicken meat is silky soft and the sauce just tastes so good!


Carrot Cake @ Yishun Blk 618
Nearest MRT: Khatib
Blk 618 Yishun Ring Road S(760618)



Carrot cake has been my favouritest food since young and i love both black and white ones.
$3.50 for such a big plate of goodness!
I love how they actually add additional preserved raddish at the side for the extra omph!
This carrot cake is fried to crisp and owners are not petty on the eggs.
the cake is soft with slight mush.

note: they only sell black carrot cake on weekdays.


If Carrot Cake is not your pick, go for the LorMee in the same kopithiam!
Its quite yummy too, by the way, I love BeeHoon Lor Mee., lol!




Meat Bao @ Yishun Block 233
Nearest MRT: Yishun
Blk 233 Yishun Street 21, 760233




Guess by looking at the photo, you are already salivating?
I don't like eating Meat Bao, Siew Mai or Wanton cos of the meat, but this bao really blown me off!
The bao is soft, fluffy yet not losing the "Q" feel.
The sauce ooze out on the very first bite and the meat is well seasoned.
really YUMS!


Located in the same coffeeshop, there is this 海鲜煮粥


TomYam Koka Mee
Very generous serving of Koka Noodles, I think the uncle gave not just one packet of koka noodles but 2 packets, cos the bowl is really filled to the brim.
This bowl contains minced pork, sliced pork and even liver, so much of goodness just in this bowl.
The tomyam flavor has a rather good combination of sour and spiciness .



海鲜生面



Really a value for money $8 for both bowls of noodles,
But be prepared to wait for at least 15 mins for the noodles.
生面 - feels like those japanese ramen :)
Tangy noodles with truckloads of seafood and egg. This bowl of noodles bought the hearts of many people



砂锅菜面
Very flavorful soup and most importantly, I don't feel at all thirsty after eating this!
Portion is slightly small for a big eater.
psst. I'm always a fan of claypot!


Laksa
Blk 928 Yishun Central 1 #01-155
Nearest MRT: Yishun

A very reasonably priced Laksa that has bought the hearts of the Yishun Residents.
Thick and Fragrant Gravy, topped with fresh cockles.
This is the Laksa that has gotten most of the customers raves!



Lit Lit Sin Popiah
Located next to the Laksa Store
Nearest MRT: Yishun
Blk 928 Yishun Central 1

The popiah that has a lot of filling with the traditional crisps in the popiah.
Popiah skin is thin yet not soaking/drowned by the sauce.
I love my popiah without chilli, what about you?




HoJiak Rojak
Blk 848, Yishun Street 81
Nearest MRT: Khatib


Fresh beansprouts, turnips, cucumbers and pineapples, crunchy toasted Taupok and Dough Fritters drizzled with Generous Serving of peanuts tossed with thick sweet shrimp paste sauce.
This simple hawker food that everyone loves!



Did I make you hungry yet?

Do try them out when you are around the area! :)

  8. Yishun St 81 Blk 848 has many hidden gems - the delicious (my favourite) Yong Tau Foo; I've been patronising them years now and their taste never change, soup base or dry with sauces is equally tasty as well. Curry, needless to day, is one of the best curry gravy I've tasted.
    Western (big bitez) it's amazing how you can get a nearly restaurant standard kind of food (and steak) in a coffee shop, and of course at an affordable range - need I say more?

Their mee goreng is sold at the zichar stall right at the end of the kopitiam(next to the drink stall). Its 5 dollar a plate but its really worth a try. Its nt an oridinary plate of fried mee goreng that u eat at any other malay stall. Its a seafood mee goreng. Quite a huge plate with lots of seafood.
