Great food at Blk 448 Clementi Central Wet Market & Food Centre

Friday, October 28, 2016

There are a few distinct things when one thinks of Singapore is its unique hawker fare. The food was delicious, affordable and accessible. Located in most neighbourhoods in Singapore, hawker food is one of the popular and source for residents living in the area. More popular hawker centres or food centres include, but not exhaustive, Clementi Food Centre, Kovan Food Centre, People's Park Food Centre, Old Airport Road Food Centre, and many more.

The Clementi Central Wet Market and Food Centre lies at the heart of Clementi Central neighbourhood. The hawker centre or food centre has developed over the years. Some stalls remains since its beginning and there were new interesting stalls.

I cannot wait to try all the delicious foods at the Clementi Food Centre. Do keep a lookout for more postings.

Kee Hock
This stall, unlike other zi char (cooked food) stalls, offers limited dishes. Their portions were huge and the food were delicious.


Sliced Fish Hor Fun is served with broad flat noodles cooked with soy sauce, fresh fish slices, green vegetables and thick egg drop gravy. This gravy is unique as it is rich with egg. The fish slices are very fresh. The most important thing is the noodles. The flat noodles are fried with dark soy sauce for colour and taste. I could taste the nicely charred noodles. (Food rating: 3.5/5)


Beef Hor Fun is similar to the sliced fish hor fun. It is served with fried broad flat noodle cooked with beef and vegetables, topped with thick egg gravy. The beef was perfectly cooked and it was tender. Despite the delicious hor fun, it slowly became heavy. It was best to share with someone else. (Food rating: 3.5/5)



Four Seasons Ching Teng

Cheng Tng is a healthy Asian dessert or drink that has 'cooling' benefits. The soup usually contains white fungus, black fungus, lotus seeds, dried longans, barley cooked with rock sugar.


Cheng Tng from Four Seasons sells at a flat price of $2.00. The stall is manned by an auntie who sells only Cheng Tng. Cheng Tng is known as a light refreshing drink with longan, white fungus, black fungus moss, barley, lotus seeds, sweet syrup liquid and ice cubes. The ingredients were very freshly prepared and the liquid sugar was just nice. (Food rating: 3/5)

Fong's Rojak

If you love salads, why not try the Asian-Style salad called Rojak. You may order either a normal set of salad with fruits, vegetables and fried fritters or customise your order. 

Rojak is known as a Singaporean-style salad served with beansprouts, cucumber, tau pok (fried beancurd), pineapple, and at times with fruits with peanuts tossed with prawn paste. There are different variations of Rojak and we ordered rojak with purely you tiao.  

I ordered a plate of fried dough fritters (油条) rojak. The wait was long but it was definitely worth it. The toasted fried dough fritters had a mouthwater aroma - lightly charred and crispy. Mixed with the prawn paste, sugar and drizzled with lime, water and ginger flower shreds, the entire salad dish came alive. I was awestruck. (Food rating: 4/5)

Yong Fa Hainanese Curry Rice & Curry Fish Head

The Hainanese styled Curry Rice is defined by four key elements - Pork Chop, Curry Chicken, Chap Chye (or mixed vegetable stew) and Kong Bak (or Braised Pork).

A very popular stall with long queues expected.


The Kong Bak (or braised pork) was tender and fragrant. The long bean omelette, braised egg and tofu were equally awesome! The Braised Tau Pok (Fried Tofu) were absolutely amazing. All these dishes on this plate of rice cost SGD5.20, which was best shared with another. The portion was huge. As for the queue, I think it was definitely worth it. (Food rating: 4.5/5)

Fried Kway Teow • Fried Carrot Cake • Fried Oyster

The oyster omelette was fried to crisp. However, the tapioca flour mixture was added a little much. There were more flour mixture than the egg and oysters. The chilli was very good and went very well with the omelette. (Food rating: 3/5)

Carrot Cake is not made from the carrot but radish. The radish was made into a cake and fried with garlic, oil, Chinese-style preserved turnips and sweet dark sauce. The carrot cake was dry and the carrot lacked the fragrance. It could taste better. (Food rating: 2.5/5)

Similar to the Fried Carrot Cake, flat white noodles and yellow egg noodles were cooked with beansprouts, cockles (optional), Chinese waxed sausage and sweet dark sauce. The Fried Kway Teow was palatable but I wished it could be better. (Food rating: 2.5/5)


Soon Huat Cooked Food #01-08

If you love mutton stew, you will love Soon Huat Cooked Food. The cooking tasted so much like my mother's cooking aka home cooked food. The mutton was tender and flavoursome. The black sauce was thick and flavourful. The portion was generous and you will definitely have a hearty meal. I cannot wait to try out the other popular dish - Sesame Chicken.
