There are numerous places to sample local cuisine, but not all of them are as easily accessible or as diverse as the well-known Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre. This location is practically next to a bus interchange and an MRT station, making it very accessible.
The Bedok Interchange Hawker Center, located at 207-New Upper Changi Road, offers seemingly limitless dining options. It was recently renovated and is unusually spacious and airy for a local hawker centre. Because there are so many options, whether you’re looking for vegetarian, halal, noodles, rice, or finger foods, you’ll surely find something for yourself.
Here is a list of our best food stalls at Bedok Hawker Interchange:
Mr Sim Geok Him established Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian in 1968. This restaurant has achieved legendary cult status in the hearts of locals, owing primarily to one dish. The Bak Chor Mee Soup is one dish that you should never miss. If you’re thinking that this is just dry noodles with minced pork, you’re mistaken.
These noodles are super thin and chewy, and they come with the most flavorful broth ever. The broth is a strong pork broth that just seeps into the noodles, making them irresistible.
They say that the basics are the most difficult to master, and noodles are a prime example. These noodles, on the other hand, have just the right amount of chewiness and springiness.
The meatballs are bouncy and delicious, and the minced pork adds texture to the dish. Also, don’t forget about the red chilli. This is the best bak chor mee in Singapore, and we guarantee you’ll be back for seconds and thirds. At only $3, it’s also very affordable.

One of the most popular Chwee Kueh stalls, this is one of the few that has been awarded the Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand and is the first to serve chwee kueh. They only serve this and some chai-po (preserved radish), but you won’t need anything else because your mind will be blown.
You must order at least two pieces, with prices starting at $1 for two pieces, $1.50 for three pieces, and $2 for four pieces, with a minimum order of four pieces if you want the chwee kueh and chai-poh to be separate.
The chai-po is unquestionably the best part of the dish, served as a topping that adds a bit of crunch to the normally soft chwee kueh. Don’t be concerned about the amount of chai-po being too small; they usually serve a generous portion.
You must pay an additional $0.30 for takeaways. Take some home because everyone, including the elderly, can enjoy a good chwee kueh because it is so soft.

This is one of the few food stalls on the corners, and it serves a delicious curry chicken noodle dish (which is apparent from the name). The toppings seem to overflow from the bowl’s generous servings. This is yet another stall that has received the Michelin Bib Gourmand designation. Anyone would be enticed by the aroma that seems to surround the stall.
These noodles are served piping hot and spicy, making them a perfect cold-weather treat. When it comes to the broth, it is not particularly flavorful; rather, it is mild and on the sweeter side. It does, however, complement the noodles and the ingredients that soak it up. The chicken is extremely tender, and other ingredients include potato (which is the star of the dish), fish cakes, noodles of your choice, and so on.
Each bowl costs $5 and is something you should not pass up.

There are only a few dishes that can make you feel warm inside with every bite, and the song zhou luo buo gao is one of them. We’re sure everyone has a favourite, but this is one of the food stalls that serves a delicious fried carrot cake. Although they used to serve white carrot cake, they began frying them to appeal to a younger audience, but this quickly became obsolete.
This dish is a little wetter than usual and has a strong aroma. Stir-frying garlic and chai-poh is followed by the addition of carrot cake. The sweet black sauce, fish sauce, and egg batter are then added. The eggs provide a much-needed savoury flavour that balances out the sweetness of the black sauce. This dish can also be made with prawns or squid. This dish is normally $3.5 for a plate, $4 if you want extra eggs, and $5 if you want the prawns and squids.
The dish has a nice crunch to it, and the portions are reasonable.

Everyone adores and enjoys a good bowl of ban mian, and this stall serves the best in Bedok. The portions are generous, and the flavour is also very satisfying. Even the price is reasonable, with each plate costing $3.50.
The noodles are made by hand, and the broth is very homey, making the bowl of noodles hearty and welcoming, just like your grandmother would make for you. The seasoning is done to perfection and will satisfy everyone. The ban mian is served in a yellow bowl, which has become their signature. A runny egg, fresh vegetables, and super tender minced pork round out the ban mian.
A lot of people also rave about the store’s owner’s service. Allowing the noodles to soak in the broth before cooking will allow you to enjoy the full flavour. It may be difficult with the smell enticing you, but you will thank us later.

Don’t be deceived by the appearance of this counter-serving stall. It may not have a high-end atmosphere, but it certainly has the bold flavours to brighten your day. If you enjoy Lor Mee and Prawn Noodles, this is the stall to visit. It’s also very simple to find; just look for the longest line.
Lor mee, the most popular dish, consists of thick and flat noodles, pork bellies, fish nuggets, and fish cakes in a dark gravy. But it’s the garlic, chilli sauce, and celery that steal the show, adding much-needed tanginess to the dish. Even though it lacks the traditional ngoh hiang and braised egg, this dish has the power to steal your heart and soul. A single bowl costs about $3, but we can also get it for $4 or $5.
This food stall is one of the top ten lor mees in Singapore and should not be missed.

The Inspirasi is well-known for its Soto Ayam, which is crystal clear and made up of compressed rice cakes and noodles. However, you must try it with their famous signature chilli, which they make at home. Other dishes to try include Mee Rebus, Soto Ayam, Mee Soto, and Chicken Porridge. All of these dishes are $2.50, which is very reasonable.
Another excellent dish is the Mee Rebus, which comes with a thick delicious gravy and a variety of flavours ranging from savoury to sweet to spicy. The freshly chopped green chilies give the dish a punch that is surprisingly refreshing.

When you have a craving for chicken rice, give Jefri The Original Botak Chicken Rice a try. Because the Nasi Ayam Goreng is made with a lot of spices, it has an unusual nuclear orange colour. It’s very flavorful, and once you’ve had a bite, you won’t be able to stop eating it. They also serve roasted chicken as an accompaniment.
This chicken is served atop a mound of vermillion rice. This one is unquestionably for spice connoisseurs. Aside from these dishes, they also serve Mee Soup for $3, Mee Hong Kong for $3, and Mee Bandung for $3.50.

10. Mala Xiang Guo
Is it any surprise that Mala dishes are sweeping Singapore? They’re highly addictive and leave a burst of flavour in your mouth. Two dishes, the Mala Hot Pot and the Mala Xiang Guo (Stir-fry), will leave you wanting more heat. The fiery and tongue-numbing mala will hit the spot and quickly become a favourite. Because of the long lines, this is one of the food stalls you should not miss.
Most Mala food stalls charge prices based on the weight of the ingredients, but this one employs a portion system, with a fixed charge per portion. This makes them significantly less expensive than the other Mala food stalls. Aside from these two delicacies, there are numerous other dishes that you will not find anywhere else.
They serve the standard rice and instant noodles, but they also serve man tou buns and quail eggs. These are extremely rare in Mala cuisine, and you’ll be surprised at how well they pair with the sauce. Prices range between $5 and $15.
