5 Best Upper Bukit Timah Food Under $5

Upper Bukit Timah food- ice cendol and spoon on the marble table

When one thinks about Upper Bukit Timah, it’s the scenic nature reserve that calls for light trekking and some revitalizing outdoor activities amidst the lush flora. A trip to this side of the district also entices us to some of the country’s most beloved hawker grubs. And Bukit Timah Food Centre is just one treasure trove we keep returning to. Here are five of the most titillating dishes that are consistently good, even if you ask a local. 

1. Chin Hock Mutton Soup

Most mutton soup tends to be on the gamey and heavy side, but Chin Hock’s Mutton Ribs Soup ($5) is light and refreshing with the Chinese herbs that cut through the richness of the broth. You can expect the mutton ribs to be very tender, with the gamey taste almost non-existent. 

Address: 51 Upper Bukit Timah Road, #02-156 Bukit Timah Market and Food Centre, Singapore 588215

Hours: 12:00 PM – 7:30 PM Daily except on Sundays

2. 138 Kway Chap & Porridge 

Imagine silky soft kway, springy fishballs, braised intestines devoid of unpleasantness, jelly-like pig skin, chewy taupok, and egg, all soaked up in the dark and savory sauce and pairs perfectly with either porridge or noodles. The side of salted vegetables refreshes the palate that compliments the lightly sweet and meaty kway chap. And it’s only $5.

Hours: 7:30 AM – 2:00 PM (Mon-Fri)

3. Leng Kee Fish Soup

Its namesake is a delightful bowl of mellow and comforting soup of generous servings of batang that are sliced fresh upon order. What you get is a light and refreshing meal, which can be heartier with a cup of rice. It’s simple, it’s delicious, and is best with a little heat from the chili. From $5-$8.

Hours: 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM Daily except on Wednesdays

4. He Zhong Carrot Cake

He Zhong’s carrot cake ($2.50-$5) has been made with panache since 1973. And there are many reasons why they truly stand out. Specializing only in white carrot cake, you’ll find theirs to be generous, with large chunks of white carrots being held together with plenty of fluffy eggs that are nicely charred around the edges while keeping the inside moist and creamy. Add a few chilies to turn up the heat.

Hours: 6:00 AM – 8:00 PM Daily

5. Nyonya Chendol, Bukit Timah

On any given day, we would swoon over to Nyonya Chendol ($2-$3.50) for their joy-inducing classic dessert. Take a sweet cooldown on their fantastic ensemble of red beans, corn,  authentic pandan jelly, gula melaka syrup, and creamy coconut milk, and go extra with D24 durian paste. 

Address: 51 Upper Bukit Timah Road, #02-147 Bukit Timah Market and Food Centre, Singapore 588215
