Faruq Senin  •  Mar 21, 2020


It's no secret that Singapore is a foodie paradise. Whether you're looking for halal local hawker fare or craving for Japanese and Korean cuisine, you can find them all here! It's amazing how you can always find hidden gems all over the island, like Bedok Corner food centre! Credit: Giphy Although it's officially called Bedok Food Centre, east siders have gotten used to calling it Bedok Corner. Located about a 5-minute bus ride from Tanah Merah MRT Station, trust us when we say that Bedok Corner is worth travelling for as there are plenty of halal stalls with good food! Here are 10 halal eateries you need to try at Bedok Corner 🤗
1. TFF Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice
The halal branch of Tong Fong Fatt Chicken Rice, this eatery has passionate fans that will swear by the taste of its fragrant rice and juicy chicken! We think it's not a stretch to call it one of the best halal Hainanese chicken rice stalls in Singapore 😋  Apart from the usual praises for the roasted and steamed chicken meat, we’ve heard that fans of chicken gizzards might really enjoy TFF’s version. The stall has long queues throughout the day - it’s definitely a place worth checking out at Bedok Corner! 🤩 Halal Status: Halal-certified Average Price: $4 Opening Hours: Open daily; 11AM - 9PM Address: #01-22, Bedok Food Centre P.S.

2. Green Sky Fried Kway Teow
Craving for your favourite local dishes like char kway teow, fried oysters and carrot cake? Green Sky's got you covered! If you're a fan of char kway teow, you'd find that "wok hei" (charredness) taste in their version and the noodles aren't too dry. For the best of both worlds, get their White + Black fried carrot cake - the combination of thick soy sauce in the black carrot cake and the savoury white carrot cake makes it a heavenly dish. For those of you who love oysters, you'd want to dig into their fried oyster omelette which is crispy and comes with generous portions of oysters. P.S. There's another stall selling char kway teow and carrot cake called Soon Lee too. Perhaps you can try both and compare them 😅 Halal status: Halal-certified Average price of main dishes: $5 Opening hours: Open daily; 12PM-9PM Address: #01-14, Bedok Food Centre Contact: 8797 2132 Facebook
3. Satay Solo
 To satisfy your satay cravings, you have to head over to Satay Solo! Its fans are constantly raving about its succulent satay which is grilled to perfection.  The amount of meat in each stick is also really generous. The beef and mutton are popular choices here, so make sure you get them 🤤 Let's not forget Satay Solo's thick and yummy peanut gravy. The best part is, you can ask for more! Satay Solo also has a great selection of Indonesian-style rice dishes. If you love your rice drenched in gravy, their nasi jenganan (rice with sweet, savoury peanut sauce gravy) and nasi rawon (Indonesian beef soup made with black keluak nut) will entice you. Both come with an assortment of traditional Indonesian dishes like paru (lungs), begedil and/or sambal sotong which will leave you thoroughly satisfied. Halal status: Muslim-owned Average price of main dishes: $5 Opening hours: Tue-Sun; 7AM-10PM (closed on Mon) Address: #01-09, Bedok Food Centre Contact: 8797 2132 Facebook
4. Yang's Epok Epok
If there's one Malay snack that we can never get enough of, it has to be epok-epok (currypuffs)! And Yang's Epok-Epok is famous for a very good reason - its amazingly crispy crust. One bite into their epok-epok and you'll be completely blown away.  The dough and filling for their epok-epok are also painstakingly handmade daily and the deep-fried in batches so that you can savour them piping hot. If you've missed one batch, you'd have to wait for the next batch to be fried, so better take your queue 🤗 The best part? Each piece of epok-epok is just 5o cents! Halal status: Muslim-owned Average price: From $0.50 Opening hours: 10.30AM-10.30PM (closed on Mon) Address: #01-04, Bedok Food Centre
5. Nur Indah Kitchen
Standing in front of Nur Indah Kitchen, you'd see the words, "The Best Selling Nasi Ayam Penyet" on its signboard. We can definitely understand why! Each serving of ayam penyet comes with a huge chunk of chicken and generous crispy crumb toppings. The chicken is juicy and packed with flavours. Not to mention that the chilli that comes with it has a kick. The great thing is that each plate costs just $5, cheaper than most ayam penyets you'd find out there! If chicken is not your favourite protein, the stall also serves other alternatives like ikan (fish) and empal (beef) penyet. Halal status: Muslim-owned Average price: $5 Opening hours: Open daily; 8AM-10PM Address: #01-07, Bedok Food Centre Contact: 9389 4301 Facebook
6. Laksamana
 If you're a fan of laksa, you'd want to drop by Laksamana, a fairly new stall at Bedok Corner. Fun fact: "Laksamana" is actually a Malay pun which can mean "an admiral of a Malay sultanate" or "where's the laksa from?" 😂 
Credit: Areng on Facebook The stall specialises in 3 types of laksa - Singapore, Johor and Penang. And if you don't know the difference between the 3, fret not! You can read all about their origins and how they are prepared at the stall too. While Laksa Penang (or asam laksa) uses tamarind to give it a sour taste, Laksa Johor uses ground fish paste and other herbs instead. Even the noodles used is spaghetti instead of the usual laksa noodles. This stall is perfect for laksa lovers! Halal status: Muslim-owned Average price: $3.50-$5.50 Opening hours: Open daily; 10AM-7PM (closed on Mon) Address: #01-19, Bedok Food Centre
7. Goreng Pisang King
 Besides epok-epok, another popular Malay snack is goreng pisang (banana fritters)! You'll be able to spot Goreng Pisang King by its striking signboard and the many bananas that are hung at their stall. What's great about the stall is that you can choose the type of bananas you want, though I'd usually trust my parents to do that for me 😅 
Credit: Julie Terry on Facebook I personally like their goreng pisang as they are huge and the batter is also super crispy (even better when it's hot). Not to mention that it comes with generous servings of crispy crumbs as well 😋 But if you're looking for the type of goreng pisang which is custard-like and melts in your mouth, then you'd probably have to look elsewhere. Halal status: Muslim-owned Average price: $0.50-$2 Opening hours: Open daily; 11.30AM-8.30PM Address: #01-12, Bedok Food Centre
8. Masakan Anak Bujang
We love how a lot of stalls at Bedok Corner stand out, either by having interesting names or titles that they proudly flaunt. In case you're wondering, Masakan Anak Bujang means "bachelor's cooking"😅
Credit: Chegu Thamrin on Facebook If you're thinking about instant noodles, you're probably got it wrong. The stall serves something different like kacang pool (foul medames, consisting of beans topped with sunny side-up) and sabsuka (tomato-based dish with eggs).
Credit: Nasi Kerabu Bedok Corner on Facebook But perhaps, what's more unique is that Masakan Anak Bujang serves nasi kerabu (blue rice with fried fish, vegetables and crackers) too. This specialty dish originating from the northern states of Malaysia isn't commonly found in Singapore so this is the place to go if you're looking to try this unique dish! Halal status: Muslim-owned Average price: $4-$6 Opening hours: Unspecified, but the food centre's opening hours are from 8AM-10PM. Address: #01-25, Bedok Food Centre
9. Keleypot
If you're craving traditional Malay and Indonesian dishes, then head over to Keleypot! The stall specialises in asam pedas claypot (sour and spicy fish stew). Cooking it in a claypot means that you'll get to enjoy this dish piping hot. Usually, foodies would have to travel to Malaysia to get a taste of this comforting dish but now you can get it at Bedok Corner 😋 For those of you looking for a hearty dish to share with your loved ones, their Ambeng Platter would be perfect. Taste your favourite dishes like beef rendang, sambal goreng, ayam lemak cili padi all on one plate! Their Ambeng Platter is also available for delivery 🤤 Halal status: Muslim-owned Opening hours: Mon, Tue, Thu-Sat; 12PM-9PM, Sun; 9AM-6PM (closed on Wed) Address: #01-28, Bedok Food Centre Contact: 9851 8724 Facebook | Instagram
10. Suka Ramai Mama Power
 Suka Ramai Mama Power might seem like your average Indian-Muslim stall, except it's not. Customers who frequently order their appetising dishes have nothing but praises for them.  Their mee goreng combo is one of the most popular dishes here. Their sweet and savoury mee goreng is served alongside mutton chop, cheese fries and a sunny side-up and the combination is divine 😋 You might have seen stalls at Adam Road Food Centre serving this dish but if you're in the east, Suka Ramai Mama Power is your best bet. The stall doesn't just serve typical Indian-Muslim dishes; they recreate them. If you don't feel like having the normal version of roti john, then their roti john steak power will delight you. Instead of the usual egg and minced meat filling, this roti john is topped with chunks of mutton steak, making it super satisfying 😋 Halal status: Muslim-owned Average price of main dishes: $6 Opening hours: Open daily; 10AM-10PM Address: #01-26, Bedok Food Centre There you have it, 10 amazing stalls you need to try at Bedok Corner! Whether you're craving for Chinese food or good 'ol traditional Malay cuisine, you can find them all at Bedok Corner. But this is just a small fraction of the halal stalls you can find there. There are many other stalls which you can discover when you're there too, so it's time to start planning your foodie trip to Bedok Corner! Bedok Food Centre (Bedok Corner) Address: 1 Bedok Rd, Singapore 469572 Directions: From Tanah Merah MRT Station exit B, take bus 14 or 45 and alight at Bedok Camp 2 bus stop.
