If you’re looking for a quality hawker centre where you don’t have to fight tooth and nail for a seat, Zion Riverside Food Centre fits the bill perfectly.

Situated next to the Singapore River and just opposite Great World City, it is frequented by those living and working around the River Valley area. Whilst the more popular stalls do draw long queues during peak hours, it usually doesn't get overly packed. 

Though a small hawker centre, tables are well spaced out with plenty of room to move around. The food is consistently delicious too, making for a delightful dining experience. We just wish we had bigger stomachs to savour it all!

Here are 10 stalls you can’t miss. 


No. 18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow

#01-17 Zion Riverside Food Centre

Opening Hours: Mon - Sun: 12.30pm - 9pm

No. 18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow review

Lauded for (supposedly) serving the best char kway teow in Singapore, the stall’s most famous supporter is none other than Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong himself. The stall owner, Mr Ho, was even invited to the Istana, and witnessed the swearing-in of PM Lee in 2004!

Only char kway teow is served, with options to choose with $4, $5, $6 or $8 plates.

We loved what we had, and ingredients were extremely generous for the $5 portion ordered and included fresh cockles, fish cake, lup cheong and bean sprouts.


Lau Goh Teochew Chye Thow Kway

#01-26 Zion Riverside Food Centre

Opening Hours: Mon, Wed - Sat: 11am-3.30pm, 6pm-11pm, Sun: 8.30am-4pm, Closed on Tue

Lau Goh Teochew Chye Thow Kway review

This carrot cake stall has certainly stood the test of time − its owner Lau Goh was one of the first carrot cake sellers who set up stall along Merchant Road in the 1960s. After his passing, his son Peter Goh took over the stall. Though the carrot cake here does not feature lard, it doesn't compromise on taste! It's also not greasy, unlike many carrot cake versions elsewhere.

For the best of both worlds, just order a mixture of black and white!


Ah Wang La Mian Xiao Long Bao

#01-22 Zion Riverside Food Centre

Opening Hours: Tue - Sun: 11am-10pm, Closed on Mon

Ah Wang La Mian Xiao Long Bao review

Although not as high-profile as the previous stalls, Ah Wang La Mian Xiao Long Bao might just be this hawker centre’s best-kept secret. It serves a variety of Shanghainese cuisine, including steamed mini buns (xiao long bao), pan-fried and steamed dumplings, wanton and hand-pulled noodles.

The popular ones, xiao long bao ($5 for 7 pieces) and Szechuan spicy wantons ($5 for 10 pieces), are affordably priced at $5 for seven pieces and $5 for ten pieces respectively.

We really loved what we tried here!


Seng Huat Western Food

#01-12 Zion Riverside Food Centre

Opening Hours: Fri - Wed: 11.30am-2pm, 4pm-8.30pm, Closed on Thu

Seng Huat Western Food review

For classic western fare like chicken chop and spring chicken, Seng Huat Western Food is your go-to. They’ve also got offerings like ostrich steak if you’re feeling more adventurous. The owner even has ex-president S.R Nathan’s stamp of approval, with a photo of him patronising the stall hung up proudly.

Prices are decent as well, ranging from $4 for chicken cutlet rice to $9 for sirloin steak.


Boon Tong Kee Kway Chap

#01-24 Zion Riverside Food Centre

Opening Hours: Mon, Tue, Thu - Sun: 11am-10pm, Closed on Wed

Boon Tong Kee Kway Chap review

Not to be mistaken for Boon Tong Kee Chicken Rice (they’re not related at all), the star dishes here are kway chap and braised duck rice. Their sets start from just $3.50, and comes with a good balance of ingredients, including tofu, offals (big and small pig intestines), chicken meat and an egg. For a one-person portion, it's definitely going to be more than substantial!

Don't forget to try their braised duck set too. For $4.50 you'll get a generous serving of braised duck, tau kwa, preserved vegetables and hard-boiled egg.


Zion Road Big Prawn Noodle

#01-04 Zion Riverside Food Centre

Opening Hours: Mon - Sun: 12pm-3pm, 6pm-11.30pm

**Closed down permanently**

Fresh Taste Adam Road Prawn Noodle review

You won’t find prawn noodles at every food court or hawker centre. So when you come across one with tons of good coverage, best make a beeline for it!

An offshoot of its Adam Road branch, Fresh Taste Adam Road Prawn Noodle was also listed in the Michelin Bib Gourmand. It is famed for its heady broth that's the result of hours of boiling of prawn heads and pork.


Roastmania

#01-45 Zion Riverside Food Centre

Roastmania - roastmania review

This stall whips up roasted delights such as char siew and pork belly, and Malay fare like rendang chicken rice and nasi ikan penyet. It's not as prominent as some of the other stalls here, but don't miss their fried chicken rice, which features crispy chicken and flavourful rice.


Five Spice Prawn Fritter

#01-07 Zion Riverside Food Centre

Opening Hours: Tue - Sun: 12pm-2pm, Closed on Mon

Five Spice Prawn Fritter review

The stall’s name is only written in Chinese (which translates into five-spice prawn fritter), with very limited opening hours from 12 to 2pm daily. Each order of wu xiang xia bing, which costs $5 for one portion and has ngoh hiang, prawn fritter, fish cake, fried tau kwa, chinese sausage and cucumber, is made on the spot, so be prepared to wait around half an hour to 45 minutes!

Do also note that the owners share the stall with Chong Pang Village, which sells chicken wings and satay in the evenings.


Kang's Wanton Noodle

#01-06 Zion Riverside Food Centre

Xin Fei Fei Wanton Noodle review

Another popular joint with long queues, Xin Fei Fei Wanton Noodle only opens for lunch from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. While its wanton noodle is the main crowd-puller. It also serves dumpling and wanton soup, oyster sauce vegetable noodle, and fried or boiled wantons. They are known to be generous with their servings, which is a huge plus in our book.
