So I went to Sengkang recently (last year 2016) when Compass One was still under renovation and discovered a food paradise at Sengkang Kopitiam Square!
12 MUST TRY Food Stalls to Check Out at Sengkang Kopitiam Square!
I’m surprised that not many people have heard of Kopitiam Square despite the close proximity to Sengkang MRT but hey, I think making a trip to Sengkang just to try out the food at Kopitiam Square is really quite worth it!
This is the LARGEST Kopitiam in Singapore with over 60 stalls (food stalls and market stalls) and you will definitely be spoilt for choice! Best of all.. 50% of the stalls there are operating 24/7! There is no air conditioning but it’s very well lit and airy!
Read on to discover 12 stalls I spotted at Kopitiam Square below with dishes that you MUST TRY – if you haven’t! (:
UPDATED: Unfortunately, a number of stalls have already closed down since then my last visit ><
1. Lok Lok [CLOSED]
Not bad, now you can enjoy lok lok in Singapore in a Kopitiam without going to Malaysia! The food all look pretty fresh, sanitary and prices are decent starting from 50 cents per stick!
2. Vietnamese Cuisine
Was surprised to see a Vietnamese stall in a Kopitiam (my first time seeing!) and it’s good that they offer other cuisines other than the usual Chinese/Thai/Western cuisines! Vietnamese spring rolls anyone?
3. BBQ Seafood
Surprisingly this is another food stalls where you can get fried lok lok too! Other interesting dishes include herbal Prawn and claypot red wine chicken 😋
4. Western Cuisine
Grilled salmon steak for $9.50 and sirloin steak for $10.80?! Very affordable higher end Western food as well as the usual affordable fare. Simon had the Chicky Mexican Grill ($7) and it looked pretty good!
5. Pontian Wanton Noodle
Pontian Wanton noodles that you can find any most Kopitiams in Singapore but it’s a popular stall to go if you crave for a decent Wanton mee (thus the queue)! Claire had the Wanton mee as below!
6. Hwee Sao Fish Soup & Congee
Other than the usual sliced and fried fish noodles/soup, Hwee Sao Fish Soup & Congee even has a higher end red grouper sliced fish soup. Pricy but I wouldn’t mind trying!
7. Chicky Fun
A chicken rice stall selling both the conventional Steamed Chicken Rice and Fried chicken Rice! Here’s the unique point – it’s halal certified but yet it serves “char siew” (Chicken not pork)! It’s opened by Sergeant Kiang, one of the Chefs behind the Chatterbox Chicken Rice from Mandarin Hotel..so you know the chicken rice here is GOOD!
8. Pin Wei Fang Zi Char
What’s so special about this zi char stall? Well, they have a crowd pleasing salted egg crab, Crystal Hor Fun and KL Hokkein Mee (not a commonly found dish)!
9. Mookata [CLOSED]
Gee, you can even eat Thai Mookata at the Kopitiam. What else can I say? Lol
10. Seng Kee Bak Kut Teh
The famous Seng Kee Bak Kut Teh from Ang Mo Kio has an outlet here to satisfy your bak Kut Teh cravings!
11. Sengkang Square Oyster Omelette
The all-in-1 stall where you can order the crowd favourite Oyster Omelette, Fried Carrot Cake, BBQ Chicken Wings, Satay and Fried Hokkien Noodle. Queues are looonnnggg!
12. Savis Pasta and Salad [CLOSED]
A design your own gourmet pasta place that also serves salad and even Korean fried chicken wings! Crystal and I tried the Tom yum seafood pasta (GOOD) and the salted egg Prawn pasta (don’t order unless you really really really REALLY like salted egg!)!
With so many food stalls and food choices to choose from, Sengkang Kopitiam Square is a great dining choice for foodie gatherings and meals!
I would be back again soon!(;
