From traditional kopi and kaya toast to spicy laksa and chill crab, these are the Lion City’s most classic and comforting dishes.
1. Keng Wah Sung
There’s nothing quite like a trad Singaporean brekkie of kaya toast and kopi. Go old skool and pay tribute to one of Singapore’s oldest coffee shops, Keng Wah Sung, in Geylang. This cheap and cheerful family-run joint has been around for over 70 years, with loyal regulars coming back for the strong brews and value-for-money toast and egg sets. It doesn’t get more authentic than this.

4. The Original Katong Laksa Since 1950’s (Janggut Laksa)
An oldie but a goodie, legend has it this is the OG of ‘katong laksa’. Whilst the Roxy Square location may not be so enticing, you’re only here to slurp up that bowl of noodles. Add on the curry chicken if you have room.

Delivery and takeaway options: available (see FB page)
5. Fatt Soon Kueh
Got kueh-vings for a snack? Hand-made and steamed daily with recipes handed down from mother to son, these traditional Teowchew Kuehs hit the spot, have earned rave reviews from the city’s toughest food critics, and are perfect for a light bite. With three locations in hawker centers at Bedok, Kovan, and Chinatown, these sell out quickly so go/order in the morning.

East Coast Lagoon is home to top-notch stalls like Choon Hiang – ask Aunty Mui Mui to serve up some of her renowned fried kway teow. Since you’re by the water, it’s only right to tuck into some seafood. Song Kee Fried Oyster plates up delectable oyster omelettes, or hit up 28 Barbecue Seafood for chili crab, sambal sotong and bbq prawns. Dee-lish.
