Tanjong Pagar Plaza Food Center

Last week since we happen to be around Tanjong Pagar area, we decided to drop-by the near food center at Tanjong Pagar Plaza to join those working crowds to hunt for their favourite stalls over there. So for this lunch treat we have managed to conquer 5 stalls over there with 3 "Long-Queue" stalls which are popular among the patrons.

Tanjong Pagar Market and Food Centre
Blk 6 Tanjong Pagar Plaza
Singapore 810006

While queuing for the food, I saw most of the tables will definitely have a plate or two of this strange looking Ice Kachang that is sprinkle with generous amount of crushed peanuts. When our share arrived, we can't wait to sink our spoon into this yummy dessert which consists of finely shaved ice, rose syrup, cream corn and crush peanuts.
Price: S$1.50 per plate

While queuing for the "Ming Kee Cooked Food", #02-25 at the opposite direction, I saw a a lot of on-coming customers ordering this Fried Kway Teow that comes in either black or white version. And from the newspaper cut-outs that display at their shop front I read that they actually use freshly made "soup broth" to fry their kway teow. Their kway teow is served on a banana leaf with a generous variety of ingredients such as prawns, cockles, fish cake and Taiwan sausage. Worth trying.
Price: S$3.00 per plate

Since we are sitting at the table next to this "Ah Seng Laksa, Prawn Noodle" stall I decided to get a bowl of their Laksa since few of us are craving for it. As I don't prefer cockles in my Laksa, I ordered a bowl without it in exchange with some extra fishcake, beancurd puff and egg. Overall the laksa gravy is still acceptable which is not overpower by the coconut milk taste but I find that it taste some how or rather similar to those "Longtong" curry.
Price: S$2.50 per bowl

Dessert is always one of my 1st choice while sourcing for food around the hawker center. I love the traditional Tau Suan (Split green bean soup) with fried fritter or the Black Sticky Rice (Pulut Hitam) with thick coconut cream. This dessert stall sells only a few kind of dessert such as Green Bean Soup, Tau Suan, Almond Paste, Cheng Teng and etc.
Price: S$1.60 per bowl

  1. wow, I love all the food that you post. *slurp* ;)

  2. Oh, next time you go must try the curry puffs and wanton mee! But Aunt Annie never disappoints!

  3. I remember there was a Crawfish Bihun stall there. The sauce is like satay sauce. But that was more than 15 years ago.

  4. There is a better char kuay teow stall at one corner of tanjong pagar hawker centre. Taste much better than the one u tried.

  5. Thanks Juhuacha, We saw that after we have done of this. Shld give it a try on my next visit. Any other must try stalls that you would like to recommend?

  6. So many stalls have changed so food here is average standard. Drawing factor is price is reasonable for central area but not cheap. Recommend the mee rebus/mee siam/lontong all from one stall is pretty good, Aunty Annie's is the best as she's not stingy, 50's carrot cake ..... these are my favourites that have a unique taste of their own

    1. Yes! Agreed with you. The food is not as yummy as it used to be. But then compared to some other places in the central area the price is still ok. Love the desserts there too :)
