Hawkers Delight

Asian in Main Street

It's easy to miss this cash-only hole-in-the-wall, but it's worth retracing your steps for authentic Malaysian and Singaporean street food, made from scratch at this family-run favorite. Prices are temptingly low, so order to share – from spicy mee pok to noodle-heavy mee goreng and shrimp-packed laksa. Check the counter for addictive veggie fritters (just $1.45 for two).

This is one of the city's best and most enduring budget eats; there's not much room, so consider arriving off peak, unless you're planning a takeout picnic.
