Food Scoops: 84 Marine Parade Central Market And Food Centre | Must Try Hawker Stalls From Fried Kway Teow To Nasi Lemak

Located in Blk 84, Marine Parade Central Market and Food Centre is one of the iconic spots of the estate and there are a couple of hawker stalls here which we have been patronising. In terms of space, we also like the revamped food centre where the air ventilation is good and there is usually sufficient seats at any time of the day. Here’s a list of some of our favourite stalls!

Apollo Fresh Cockle Fried Kway Teow 
One of the most popular stalls in this food centre, Apollo stands out for its wetter texture of its fried kway teow as compared to most other hawker stalls. You get slices of ‘lup cheong’, fish cake and cockles with prices from S$4. Definitely an above average plate of fried kway teow where service is friendly too.

D’Authentic Nasi Lemak 
A halal stall in the food centre, I have tried this stall a couple of times and I do enjoy the Nasi Lemak here. The rice is lemak enough for me without being too rich, and the sambal is sweet yet not too spicy. You do need to pay additonal for the sambal sauce. Another of my favourite component is the begedil, which is fried potato patty.

Neptune Hong Kong Dim Sum  
This stall has been around for more than twenty years dishing out freshly made dim sum in dim sum baskets no less. The menu is extensive and the kitchen was packed and busy. Most dishes are priced between S$3-S$4 and you can find the usual popular dim sum fares.  My favourite picks are the Siew Mai (S$3.80) and Deep-fried Dumpling (S$4.50). [Read more here…]

Emmanuel Peranakan Cuisine 
Nonya style economical rice stall which also sells Peranakan style Nasi Lemak, this stall is started by the daughter of the other famous stall in the same food centre, Xing Long Cooked Food. I had the Nasi Lemak which comes in its distinct blue pea rice, along with ingredients like chicken rendang, fried egg and I also added fried chicken wings. The rice is aromatic and delicious with the sambal sauce, while the chicken rendang is flavourful and you can expect tender chicken meat. There are many other Nonya dishes to try such as Ngoh Hiang and Otah as well.

Feng Xin Dim Sum (凤心点心)
A relatively new stall, Feng Xin Dim Sum is run by ex-staff of Neptune Hong Kong Dim Sum, which is a surprising fact given the close proximity of both stalls in the same hawker centre. There are 20 dim sum items on the menu, which is easy to spot from the menu board in clear images and prices. Prices are generally reasonable from S$2.60 for the Chicken Century Egg Porridge to S$5 for the Shanghai Fried Dumpling, which is the most expensive item here. [Read more here…]

Ma Bo Lor Mee 
With a couple of outlets in Singapore, I go to this stall for my Lor Mee craving as the service is quite fast if you are pressed for time. I always order the Fried Fish Lor Mee, where it is served with a few slices of golden crusted fried fish, along with the thick gravy sauce. Overall, it is not the best Lor Mee around but decent enough for a quick fix.

Tip Top Western Food 
This is an old school Western Food stall and they have a wide range of favourites from Fish & Chips to Chicken Chop and Steak. I had the Fish & Chips where the batter is crispy, along with the fresh fish meat. The Chicken Chop is a good alternative too if you feel that Fried Chicken Cutlet is too sinful.

Du Du Hao Coffee House (嘟嘟好咖啡屋)
My go-to coffee in the hood where the stall is located in an inconspicuous corner of the food centre. At S$3, the Kaya Toast set is the most value for money item here. I have ordered this set a couple of times, and the standard has been quite consistent. I like how crispy the kaya toast is. The kaya flavour is aromatic, and along with the sliced butter, it is almost as good as Yakun, at almost half the price.
