Rejoice foodie! The Ghim Moh market and food court is finally back after a well deserved face lift. Guess what is the best thing about this comeback? Many of the original stalls that have been around since 1970 are back too! Yes, the chwee kueh aunty will still be serving her signature dish.
Remember how stuffy and humid it got when you took a sip of your favourite fish soup during lunch time at the temporary food centre? We can’t promise you a chilly windy lunch but according to stall owners and residents around that area, ventilation has greatly improved. On top of that, the food centre has also been scrubbed clean of years of grease and grime, and a wider walkway so foodies like us can manoeuvre around with ease.
The good stuff doesn’t stop just right there. According to Straits Times, 10 stall owners indicated that they will not be making any price hike despite the upgrade. Uncle Ng of Hock Lye Noodle House in particular was quoted saying that he wants his “customers to be happy as well”. (Thank you Uncle Ng!!)
To celebrate the return of one of our favourite food havens, we have picked some of our favourite noms of Ghim Moh Food Centre that we guarantee will leave you feeling sated and blissful!
Ghim Moh Chwee Kueh
Savoury Chai Poh on smooth cup shaped rice cake. Add some chilli sauce and you’ll have a party in your mouth.
Guan Kee Fried Kway Teow
Would you wait for a great plate of Fried Kway Teow that screams ‘because I am worth it’? We know we would!
Hong Seng Fish Soup
Fish soup noodles may be the new kid on the block but they sure know a thing or two about flavours. This no nonsense bowl of goodie could be a good hangover cure too.
Lian He Carrot Cake
On days when you have a serious Chai Tow Kway (carrot cake) craving, forget about the black or white. Just get both!
Hin Fried Hor Fun
Nothing spells power lunch like stir fried Hor Fun with beef. This yummy plate of food is definitely one of our favourites.
Chuan Kee Duck Rice
Look at the amount of sauce on this super savoury duck rice. We call this a major declaration of cheat day!
Tom’s Citizoom Fish Noodle
They say the early bird gets the worm, we say early foodies get the fish noodles. Think super smooth texture, well seasoned clear soup… you’ll want to wake up early too!
Sugar cane drink
While you’re at it, don’t forget to get some refreshing thirst quenchers to beat the heat. (Sugar cane juice available at several drink stalls)
