Changi Village Hawker Centre

A trip to Changi Village Hawker Centre usually involves a commitment.  You need to drive or take a long bus ride, or you are committed to going to Pulau Ubin or to Johor by bum boat.  So one night, we decided that it was worth it to take a drive and eat there because it was something that we don’t usually do a lot.

And we are always happy with our decision to go.

With the renovation recently, some places have gone and some have stayed and some have moved.  What is interesting to me is that International Muslim Food Stal is in a different location, but still serves one of the best Nasi Lemak that there is.

It used to be on the corner, but that is now occupied by Mitzy, which also serves Nasi Lemak.  Sometimes I wonder if people don’t know the difference but just queue because that’s where they used to queue for this.

It’s quite simple.  A set with Chicken Wing, Egg, Ikan Bilis and Rice is $3.50.  Add a fish fillet, another $1.  It all varies.

Put it all together, and you get instant yumminess.

How about Chicken Wings?

Ah Hwee has branched out from East Coast Lagoon Village and have a stall here.  I love the ones at Lagoon, and this one is no exception.  Made the same way and taste great!

The golden brown skin is nice and crispy and flavorful, this is without a doubt a great chicken wing.

We went for Weng Kee, as it occupies two stalls and has all of these listings saying that people visit and get awards, so why not try?  IMG_3336

We were stuck between Ipoh Hor Fun and Chicken Chop Hor Fun.  We went for the chicken chop.  The chicken is nice and crispy and juicy, the hor fun nicely done and the gravy not too salty and not too sweet.  Not a bad dish at all.  Will have to go for the Ipoh Hor Fun next time.

The next time was very quick, as I found myself there a few days later.  And I went for the Ipoh Hor Fun. For $3.50 it was not bad.  White Chicken Meat, Char Siew, Fish Cake, Mushrooms and Veggies and a nice wanton.  The Hor Fun was nice, though a little clumpy.  The sauce was nice, but maybe a tad too sweet for me.

Lena wanted Rojak, so we found a stall that sells it.

Nothing to rave about, but serviceable. Of course you folks know by now that we get Rojak with just You Tiao, Tau Bok and Cucumbers 🙂

Across the way at an HDB shophouse is this Malacca stall, and it sells Chendol, so we went for it.

Nothing to rave about again, but cooling and not bad.

One thought on “Changi Village Hawker Centre

  1. I have been to Changi village hawker center a few times after renovation. And try their chicken wings. Hmm worth buying.
    But sometimes if you find their wings is abit dry, don’t blame them. As their stall was block by the other stall selling the same item with them. Cause I have been observing and talking to AH HWEE CHICKEN staffs before.
