11 affordable noodle spots in Ang Mo Kio to curb your hunger pangs

“What do you want to eat today, rice or noodles?” I’m sure you’ve been asked this question several times before. I’m definitely on team noodles! As someone who resides in Ang Mo Kio, the amount of noodle options to discover is never-ending.

Whether it’s the extremely thin mee sua, mee pok or the super broad kway chap, there’s definitely something for everyone! I’ve compiled a list of 11 affordable noodle spots in Ang Mo Kio to curb your hunger pangs, some being my personal favourites— hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!

1. Sumo Fried Hokkien Noodles

Located at Ang Mo Kio 628 Market for the past 13 years, Sumo Fried Hokkien Noodles has always been under the radar and has low social media coverage compared to their sister stall, Sumo Big Prawn Noodle.

Be sure to order their Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee (S$4.50 for small and S$6 for medium), which comes with three fresh small prawns and pieces of sotong. The ratio of bee hoon to noodles is higher over here as it absorbs more stock, resulting in a more flavourful Hokkien mee that’s perfumed with the addition of minced garlic and slightly crispy pork lard bits.

Although the Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee doesn’t use sliced pork belly, the three-hour boiled prawn stock is robust enough to satisfy your taste buds, served with their homemade sambal chilli that has strong dried shrimp notes— this is the best Hokkien mee in Ang Mo Kio in my opinion.

Previously from Sin Ming Lane, Shiok Shiok Noodles relocated to Teck Ghee Court Market & Food Centre in late 2021. It is helmed by 37-year-old Chef Kelvin Tan, who drew inspiration from his maternal and paternal grandmothers’ traditional recipes.

Besides the regular Bak Chor Mee (S$3.50 for small, S$5.50 for large), the traditional Black Mee Sua Soup (S$7) comes with mee sua, liver kidney, sliced ginger, and a home-made herbal soup. If you’re in the mood to elevate your bowl, you can top up another S$1.50 to get XO liquor added to your mee sua.

It consists of springy minced meat, fishballs and fish cake, smokey and crunchy lard, meatballs and your choice of noodles— mee kia, mee pok, kway teow, mee tai mak and mee sua.

3. 建造 Jian Zao Ipoh Curry Noodle

Jian Zao Ipoh Curry Noodle is run by a Malaysian father-and-son team at a kopitiam at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1, just next to Ember Charcoal Grill. I have patronised them twice so far in a month and I’ve not been disappointed. Tasting completely different from Singapore’s version, Jian Zao Ipoh Curry Noodle’s curry gravy is more flavourful and robust.

Available in dry and soup versions, the Signature Ipoh Curry Noodle (S$6) consists of char siew, roast pork, shredded chicken, tau pok and your choice of noodles: yellow noodles, thick bee hoon, hor fun and thin bee hoon. I would recommend their thick bee hoon as it provides a nice chewy texture that goes well with the thick curry gravy.

Besides selling curry noodles, they also offer Asam Laksa (S$4.90), Chee Cheong Fun Curry Pig Skin Long Beans (S$3.90) and Curry Fish Balls (S$3.80) on their menu.

Tucked under a HDB void deck at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3, Huay Kwang Thai Wanton Mee is a small eatery by itself next to the nearby kopitiam. Besides offering a couple of rice dishes like Thai Pork Trotter Rice (S$5.50) and Thai Char Siew Rice (S$4.50), they have a selection of affordable noodles to choose from.

The Thai Wanton Noodles (S$4 for small) may look plain in terms of appearance, but it’s packed full of flavour, thanks to the pork lard oil. It comes with slices of char siew, crispy pork lard, green vegetables and three boiled wantons. The wantons at Huay Kwang Thai Wanton Mee are extremely plump and meaty— I highly recommend them!

Black Sauce Wanton Noodle (S$4 for small), Braised Pork Trotter Noodle (S$6) and Fried Wanton Noodle (S$5 for medium) are just some of the other choices that you can get over here. You have a choice between a dry and soup version, and also selecting the type of noodles you wish to have— egg noodles, mee pok or kuay teow.

Located at the same coffeeshop at Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 as Jian Zao Ipoh Curry Noodle, Shinjitsu Ramen offers Japanese Ramen at wallet-friendly prices.

The Clear Chicken Ramen (S$6.50) may be one of the cheapest ramen available in the area, but it does not fall short of ingredients and quality. It comes with a whole torched chicken drumstick, black fungus, spring onions, and yellow ramen served with a bowl of flavourful light broth. The chicken drumstick is simmered in a pot of chicken broth for hours, resulting in fork-tender and juicy meat.

Yong Xin is located at Chong Boon Market and Food Centre, at the extreme left corner near the market entrance. I’m a loyal customer here at this 12-year-old noodle stall, which has long queues during lunch time and usually sells out before 2 pm. They specialise in bak chor mee and fishball noodles.

Have it together with vinegar and chilli to enjoy a shiok bowl of noodles.

Another popular stall at Chong Boon Market and Food Centre, Ang Mo Kio Loh Mee Laksa sells only two dishes— Loh Mee and Laksa. There’s always a long queue in front of the store as the prices here are reasonable, and the noodles are super yummy.

The Laksa (S$3.50 for small, S$4.50 for large) comes with thick bee hoon, tau pok, boiled egg slices, fishcake and cockles (optional). The gravy is thick and flavourful and it has improved drastically over the years. I remember the gravy used to be slightly diluted and bland a few years ago but they have now nailed the taste!

11 affordable noodles spots in ang mo kio - Lai Lai Xing stallfront

Situated at the same kopitiam at Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 where you can find the famous $1.30 Dim Sum, Lai Lai Xing Fishball Noodles sells seven types of noodle dishes.

They are Pig’s Tail Noodle (S$5), Prawn Noodle (S$4), Fishball Minced Meat Noodle (S$4), Mini Wok Noodle (S$5), Lor Mee (S$4), Pork Ribs Noodle (S$5) and Laksa (S$4).

The Fishball Minced Meat Noodle comes with three fishballs, minced pork, fish cake, fried pork lard, sliced lettuce and the noodle of your choice. Unlike other noodle stalls whose noodles tend to clump together when you takeaway, Lai Lai Xing’s noodles are moist and have a little more gravy. This prevents them from sticking together and I am speaking from experience having had  the noodles at home many times.

If you feel like having something light, you can also opt for their Fishball Soup (S$3.50) and Meatball Soup (S$3.50).

Nestled within Kebun Baru Market and Food Centre, 30-year-old Hock Kee Wanton Noodle has been featured in several food blogs, for selling their wanton noodles at only S$3. However, they have increased their prices by an additional S$0.50 with effect from 17 March 2022— still very cheap in my opinion!

Wanton Noodle Dry (S$3.50) comes with springy noodles that are firm to the bite. Hock Kee Wanton Noodle serves them with crispy pork lard that gives additional dimensions to the taste and texture. The wantons are made in-house daily after the shop closes. They are plump and have the perfect ratio of skin to filling.

The stall also serves Braised Chicken Feet Noodle (S$3.50), Wanton soup (S$3) and Dumpling soup (S$3). Expect long queues if you decide to visit, and they usually sell out before lunchtime, so be sure to get there early!
