Here's the lowdown on what to grab for a bite at Amoy Street Food Centre. Never spend money on any unsavoury dish again!
Nasi Lemak Drumstick@Amoy
7 Maxwell Rd, #02-99, Singapore 069111.
Opens: Mon - Sat 7:30am to 2:30pm | Closed on Sundays
@monklun2003 made a grand entrance, singing praises of the "Nasi Lemak Drumstick@Amoy." It sells a variety of sets, from Curry Chicken to Braised Drumstick Nasi Lemak. His face lit up as he shared the wisdom of this treasure—the Chicken Drumstick Nasi Lemak that came with a bowl of soup at $6.50. Boy, the last time he smiled so much was when he was coding.
The sambal, while not too spicy, allowed him to liberally spread its goodness over the fragrant coconut rice. He added, "If you want a good deal ask for the chicken wing set with an extra wing, more meat than the drumstick set for a lower price!"
A Noodle Story
7 Maxwell Road #01-39 Amoy Street Food Centre, Singapore 069111.
Opens: Mon - Fri 11:30am to 2:00pm; 5:30pm to 7:00pm | Saturday 11:00am to 1:15pm
@jerryneo, the adventurous connoisseur chanced upon The Noodle Story and decided to brave the long queue because as Singaporeans would say, “Long queue means good, just queue first”. Well, he’s right this time. A Noodle Story is the first and only Singapore-style ramen, and has been awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand for 7 consecutive years. Thus, with the tenacity of a food detective, Jerry scrutinizes every ingredient, likening the char siew to "Lor bak" and puzzling over their compatibility. Yet, despite the quirky amalgamation, Jerry declares it delicious but not quite worthy of a daily pilgrimage. "Queue is too long and for $12.90 at a hawker. Just not that worth it."
If you are around the corner and do not mind spending a tad more for a great wanton noodles experience, this should be on the top of your list.
Amoy Char Kway Teow
7 Maxwell Rd, #01-01, Singapore 069111
Opens: Mon, Wed - Sat 9:30am to 2:30pm | Closed on Tuesdays & Sundays
In the midst of this culinary saga, @pogstal managed to snag up the famous Amoy Char Kway Teow, located at #01-01. In her words, the Char Kway Teow boasts a "generous portion of cockles", and fishcakes that would satisfy the tastebuds of any self-proclaimed fishcake enthusiast. "…the fishcake really shines through if you are all about that sweetness," she said. Hearsay there is usually a queue in the afternoon so it's recommended to go early before the lunch crowd hits.
7 Maxwell Rd, #02-78, Singapore 069111 Opens: Mon - Fri 7:30am to 2:30pm
On another level of Amoy Street Food Center at the humble unit of #02-78, @kermit has finally uncovered the "shiok" secrets of Coffee Break's black sesame toast. Coffee Break is a family-owned coffee shop that not only serves traditional tasting drinks, but unique ones as well, such as Sea Salt Caramel or Butter Pecan Latte. On this fateful day, @kermit decided to try the toast and says with a touch of glee, "the sesame balances out the creamy heavy butter super well, and the toast is crunchy too! 🤤🤤"
Not to be outdone, @richylyq, a seasoned connoisseur of both Fridays and Coffee Break, narrates the never-ending saga of "Another Friday. Another Coffee Break. Another Black Sesame Toast. Another $3 Cashback." It's a ritual worthy of admiration, as @richylyq expertly navigates the art of coffee breaks with precision.

But the excitement doesn't end there. @pogstal shares her insider tip on conquering the Yummy Curry at #02-92: "Better to go early before it sells out." A cautionary tale emerges as she recounts the day when only 2 sets remained, leading to a humorous exchange with an auntie asking if she was alright with a "smaller chicken HAHAHA." Well, clearly @pogstal took up the offer! Clearly, Yummy Curry is a place where smaller chickens are still worth the savour.
@richylyq, the self-proclaimed kiddo (despite any technical age limitations), finds solace in the not too spicy curry options available. Most of the sets come with rice and prawn crackers to help ease the pain (if any) but undoubtedly, kiddos at heart will find plenty to savor at Amoy Street Food Centre. For those who cannot take spice well, at least this curry will not send you to the toilet the next morning....hopefully, but no promises from us.
So, dear foodies and curious connoisseurs, don your adventurous spirit and venture into Amoy Street Food Centre. Unravel its hidden gems, post about your experience and never let the adventure cease!
