What to eat at Whampoa Makan Place Food Centre?

Whampoa Makan Place (Food Centre) was where we had our breakfast this beautiful Saturday morning. In fact, we were looking for another foodie joint (River South Hoe Nam Prawn Noodles) which unfortunately was not open that morning. Hence, Kate decided to key in “Whampoa Food Centre” into our GPS and soon we arrived at this foodie’s paradise along Whampoa Drive. Fortunately for us, we made the switch and boy did we enjoy our breakfast at Whampoa Makan Place / Food Centre!

What to eat at Whampoa Makan Place Food Centre


1. Ping Liang Wanton Noodles (平良云吞面)

To be honest, we did not know what or where to start off first when we reached Whampoa Food Centre. We scanned through many stalls and finally decided to “join a queue”. Where else to start if you have absolutely no idea right? We did not regret joining the queue at Ping Liang Wanton Noodles!

There are 2 highlights to the wanton noodles of Ping Liang. Firstly, the sauce used for the noodles had that old traditional taste (古早味). We can imagine scores of residents visiting this stall (repeatedly) solely for its taste which is rarely tasted else where. Secondly, the wanton. You can taste the bits of fried flat fish (扁鱼) mixed into the minced meat with each bite of the wanton. Fragrant and flavourful. Unlike any wanton we’ve tasted. Well, not everything about the wanton mee was good. We’ve tasted better char siew else where.

We were glad that we added a piece of pork rib. The pork rib is infused with flavours of the soya sauce and was so so tender! So tender that even the cartilage/tendon came off easily. Yum!

2. Imperial Kitchen Ramen Xiao Long Bao (御厨拉面小笼包)

After our tryst with the awesome wanton noodles, Kate wanted to end off the morning with some xiao long bao. Hence, we headed over to Imperial Kitchen Ramen Xiao Long Bao. For $3, you could have 5 or $5 for 10. At those prices, they’re definitely giving Din Tai Fung a run for their money. What’s more, there’s an unique rice wine taste to the soup (of the dumpling) that makes you want to come back for more.

As we looked down the list, beef noodles was next in line. Since the stall is a ramen stall, it wouldn’t hurt to try its beef ramen. The beef was finely sliced and the soup was infused with the taste of the beef. Lots of chives added to the taste of the soup and texture of the noodles. There was also a huge portion of the hand-pulled ramen. To think that a top-notch Chinese cuisine chef is working in the heartlands, within a foodie’s food centre no less.

If you’re having a craving for ramen and xiao long bao, look no further than Imperial Kitchen Ramen Xiao Long Bao!

3. Famous Bedok Kway Chap (勿洛粿汁)

Although we did not try the kway chap here. But judging by the queue and the audacity of its name – “Famous Bedok Kway Chap”, it must mean that the kway chap standard is not too bad right? If you have tried the kway chap here, tell us more about it in the comments section below!
