It’s great that Singapore’s hawker food is being internationally recognised, but what’s even better is that most of these food items are priced at less than $5
1. Chicken dum biryani, $8.50
Name: Bismillah Biryani
Address: 50 Dunlop Street
While it is not their signature dish – that would be the mutton dum biryani priced at $15 – the chicken dum biryani from Bismillah Biryani is a relatively cheap $8.50.
2. Fishball noodles, $4.50
Name:The Fishball Story
Address: timbre+, 73A Ayer Rajah Crescent
Formerly based at the Golden Mile Food Centre, The Fishball Story boasts freshly handmade fishballs that are 100% fish meat.
3. Laksa, $5
Name: 328 Katong Laksa
Address:51 East Coast Road / 216 East Coast Road
Though their ‘small’ bowl is priced at $5, it’s surprisingly filling. If you have a larger appetite, though, you can get a larger portion for $7.
4. Beef Noodle, $5
Name:Hong Kee Beef Noodle
Address:Amoy Street Food Centre 7 Maxwell Road, #01-42
Amoy Street Food Centre is the place to go for the discerning foodie on a budget, and it’s no surprise that among the 34 Bib Gourmand awardees, 4 of them can be found here.
5. Carrot Cake, $4
Name: Chey Sua Carrot Cake
Address:Toa Payoh West Market and Food Court 127 Lorong 1 Toa Payoh, #02-30
The humble carrot cake is an excellent option if you’re looking for a filling meal that doesn’t involve meat. Portions cost $2, $3 and $4, but of course the $4 is the most value for money.
6. Rojak, $4
Name:Balestier Road Hoover Rojak
Address:Whampoa Drive Food Centre 90 Whampoa Drive, #01-06
At a minimum of $4 a dish, it’s one of the pricier rojak options in Singapore, but the long queues means there’s clearly still a demand.
