    Fried carrot cake (chai tow kway). Kampong Carrot Cake #02-53 is a highly-praised stall. Received lots of recognition for this humble dish. Theirs is very egg-y & fried till slightly burnt

    Been going to this market since I was a kid. Everything is yummy but my top favourites are chwee kueh, fried carrot cake, 178 lor mee, bao and the specialty fish ball stall!

    Char Kway Teow (fried flat rice noodles). I like mine wet, sweet & savoury. Fried Kway Teow #02-08 serves like that (top pic), compared to neighbouring #02-11 Tiong Bahru Fried Kway Teow (bottom pic)

    Excellent shui Kueh at the food centre and other nice food. The jewel of the crown for me the the extensive market which has everything. Good for expats too as they stock things not usually found.

    Get the lor mee from Tiong Bahru Lor Mee (#02-80) and shark meat nuggets from 178 Lor Mee (#02-23) respectively. Mix them together, and you get the best of both worlds. Just a suggestion.

    Blanco Court Fried Fish Soup #02-62 - I enjoyed their fried fish slices. Not over-battered and the flavour is tasty. Soup base is not overly tasty, lightly flavoured.
