An extremely popular location by the beach, this food village is designed with a tropical feel with boardwalks and beach umbrella tables. It’s a fantastic place to chill out with a beer and watch the beach activities. Satay, laksa, rojak and oyster omelette are some of the popular dishes here.
East Coast Lagoon Food Village, found at East Coast Park, offers good hawker food. It is found just after the water sports center, before bedok jetty. Newly renovated, this hawker centre has some hawker stalls which are so popular that it is not uncommon to find queues at least 10 people long!
One of Singapore’s most popular hawker centers is also located at the East Coast beach. There’s lots of affordable fare here, including a wide choice of satay (Malay-style grilled skewers of meat served with spicy peanut dip). Of the dozen or so satay stalls, Haron’s (stall no.55) is regarded as one of the best. Chicken, mutton, and beef satay are regular meats used, but try the “babat” or tripe too -- it’s surprisingly the most tender of them all.
This hawker centre is considered the centre of BBQ Seafood. The hawker stalls here serve an array of seafood including fish, prawn, crayfish, crab, calamari as well as various shellfish such as sea snails, clams and cockles.
If you like grilled goodies, grab some Teddy Bear BBQ chicken wings (stall no.44) and Leng Heng Seafood BBQ sambal stingray (stall no.6).
Cheok Kee (stall no.29) always sees a long queue for its braised duck rice. They also have a stall (no.27) selling delicious curry chicken noodles and Chinese style assam fish head curry.
Don’t forget to cool down with a refreshing bowl of icy “cheng tng” (clear sweet soup with dried fruit, beans and nuts) from Hot & Cold Cheng Tng (stall no.41).
