We will do away with the popular Hawker Centre as we bring you, only those you most probably haven’t been before.

  1. Soon Lee Lor Mee

MacPherson’s quintessential comfort food since the 1970s, imagine crispy yam fritters and braised pork in a sweet bowl of gravy (a topping of a boiled egg would make it extra special).

KL Traditional Chili Ban Mee

We love this place at 476 MacPherson road because they prepare the food only upon order, so you can expect it to be fresh and hot served. The crowd-pleaser KL Pan Mee at $5 is a joyful bowl of handmade
