As much as we love food, you would agree with us when we say that sometimes, it’s hard to decide on where to eat. It’s not even surprising if you find yourself perplexed when asked what’s nice to eat around Sengkang. Moreso, when you’re looking for budget-friendly ones.
To spare you the contentious decision-making, here are 5 of the best affordable eateries Sengkang locals recommend.
With no grand introduction needed, King of Fried Rice is indeed made for royalty. Often compared to the Michelin-starred Din Tai Fung, their steady crowd favorite are the masterfully prepared Egg Fried Rice with Pork Cutlet ($8.50) and the sumptuous XO Fried Rice with Pork Cutlet ($10). Each grain of rice is fluffy and well seasoned with a pleasant wok hei fragrance that will hit you. With the meat so tender and flavorful, their fried rice creations are not to be messed with.

One of the old-time hawkers that are hard to beat, Armenian Street CKT dates back to the late 1940s and has relocated many times until they found a new address in Sengkang, and we could tell it’s here to stay. At just $4, you’ll get to indulge in a hot plate of chewy noodles coated with semi-sweet dark soy sauce, and loaded with fresh cockles, fish cake, crunchy bean sprouts and lard for texture, Chinese sausage, and egg, and rounded off with a fragrant wok hei goodness. It’s so good, you have to have patience in a long queue.
