There’s no lack of food options in Kovan, but most are only open at night – except this food centre. Just be sure to arrive before 1pm to get the best of the food options out here.
Minced meat noodles
$3.50 at Fa Ji Minced Meat Fishball Noodle (#01-05)
The mee kia (thin yellow noodles) at Fa Ji look hand-cut and taste a little more floury than a usual bowl, but what we really like are the sinful fried pork lard bits.
$3 at Kovan Rojak (#01-39)
The punchy, peanut-ty sauce is hard to beat, but you’ll need to add cuttlefish ($2), jellyfish ($2) and century eggs ($1) to fill up.
Mixed vegetable rice
$3.60 at Hougang Hainanese Curry Rice/Economic Bee Hoon (#01-25)
It doesn’t hurt that we only paid $3.60 for big scoops of a meat and two vegetables dishes – oh, and give the curry chicken a try.
$3 at Yi Shi Jia Wanton Mee (#01-57)
Although the sweet, tangy sauce is the stall’s selling point, the true highlight here is the cloudy broth with flavourful wantons.
