Look past Yishun’s series of unfortunate events and you’ll find a treasure trove of culinary goodies
Launched in September 2017, the Yishun Park Hawker Centre is Timbre Group’s bid to keep the hawker spirit alive. From cashless payment made via a mobile app to automatic self-return tray stations, the food paradise is a recipe of modernity, enhanced by tech innovations that has lured both hawker veterans and young cooks to pursue their culinary endeavours in this space. There are now a total of 43 stalls at the food centre, and here are top five picks:
1. Chilli Crab Crayfish Hor Fun ($18), Xin Long Xing Seafood White Beehoon & Stir Fry
Though it comes with a hefty price tag for hawker fare, the Chilli Crab Crayfish Hor Fun served at Xin Long Xing encompasses the comforting flavours of a traditional seafood hor fun dish, but with a spicy kick. Based on varied prices depending on the crayfish’s market value, the noodle dish is ladened with thick sweet chilli gravy before two massive crawfish top the culinary masterpiece. Boasting threads of egg white, the gravy, in itself, reflects the sweet-spicy profile of the iconic chilli crab dish, where instead of fried man tous, hor fan noodles soaked up the fiery sauce. The crawfish is also cooked to perfection, with its meat sliding out the shell easily.
