With a very simple menu, choose from dumplings or noodles that start from $6 with a variety of different ingredients served per bowl. Try their Sichuan Pork Noodle ($6) or get their Fried Pierogis ($8) which are stuffed with smoked bacon, truffle potato, caramelised onion, cheddar and sriracha cream. Although it breaks the bank, their lunch deal ($16+) is also worth it as they include one noodle, 4pcs of dumplings and a ice cold drink.

What began as a hawker booth in the Yishun Park Hawker Centre has now expanded to the Central Business District. Modern Hakka rice bowls and freshly prepared min jiang kueh are the must trys on the menu at Ah Lock & Co. The Hakka Meatball Riceball Bowl ($7.80), is a well-balanced dish with homemade meatballs, vegetables and an onsen egg served on fluffy rice. It might sound like a regular bowl, but we guarantee you that you will be coming back for more no matter how crowded the lunch crowd is.

All of the culinary joy you can think of can be found in a bowl of wonton mee (from $6) here, it’s Chinese comfort cuisine at its finest. It may be a little more expensive than a typical coffee shop bowl, but try a mouthful of the char siew, springy egg noodles, succulent pork belly, and famed peppery boiled wontons before passing judgement. The flavours indeed pay homage to the traditional bowl, but the Noodle House touch of course blows the cheaper competition out of the water. Like always, additional chilli sauce, and lard crackers are add-ons you can consider if you are looking for a little kick.

Here you can choose from a variety of hot and cold meals, with prices ranging from $3.90 to $10.80 a bowl. For beginners, try their Kake Udon ($7.40) in their signature rich and savoury broth.
