One of the best dishes is definitely the Indonesia Prawn. Once just isn’t enough, you’ll definitely be going back for more.
Must try: Indonesia Prawn ($20.80). This claypot bowl of Indonesian prawn curry is intense. Just one sip brims with the flavour of prawns, spice, and curry. Mix it with plenty of rice and enjoy.

Think of good food at Serangoon, and you’d probably think of Chomp Chomp. Well it’s time you tried the equally good alternative, Siang Hee Seafood.
Must try: Butter prawns with pumpkin cream sauce ($12). Yep that’s right, pumpkin sauce, and not salted egg yolk. It’s sweet, with just a tinge of savouriness, and mildly spicy from curry powder that kicks in after a few bites.
Not to mention, the prawns are very large, juicy and crispy too.

Listed in the Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand Guide, Kok Sen Restaurant is one of the biggest names in the local zi char business. It’s so famous that despite it’s coffee-shop style restaurant, reservations are recommended.
The flavourful and rich dishes have people queuing every night for their food. With many well-known dishes like Big Prawn Crispy Noodles with Shrimp Omelette and Thai Style fried rice, it’s no wonder everyone is raving about it.
The star of the show however, is no doubt the signature Claypot Yong Tau Foo. It’s usually available only on weekends and is a hot seller, make sure to get there early if you want a taste!
Must try: We’ve seen regular yong tau foo, we’ve seen it stir fried, but claypot yong tau foo takes it to a whole other level. It’s all in the gravy, which is complex with notes of sweetness, salt, smokiness, and a hint of spice that keeps you going back for more.
