Malaysia is used to be a popular weekend getaway of choice for almost everyone who reside in Singapore. Due to COVID-19 , we are unable to travel and Malaysians are unable to go home to visit their families. Many of us misses the favorable exchange rate and the delicious Malaysian food from all over Malaysia. I do miss the taste of home and explored Malaysian food places in Singapore. Here are the places to go to satisfy your hometown cravings:
1. Ipoh Tuck Kee
Tuck Kee is one of the must- visit place when you travel to Ipoh. Their third generation has opened a stall at Foch Road. When they just started operation, the queue was almost 2 hours. If you miss Yu Kong Hor 月光河 and their signature dishes like baby octopus, try this place. The taste is like the ones in Ipoh almost 90% similarity I would say.

2. Uptown Nasi Lemak (Telok Ayer)
Missing Malaysia-style Nasi Lemak? Try Uptown Nasi Lemak at Telok Ayer Coffeeshop that is opened by two Malaysians who grew up in Damansara Uptown, Malaysia. Online reviews mentioned that they are unable to find the same taste of Malaysian nasi lemak in Singapore. Thus, they decided to recreate the taste and dish here. We had the signature Nasi Lemak with Ayam Goreng Berempah S$7.50 (Whole Leg) and Nasi Lemak with Beef Rendang S$8.50. We could feel the similarity from the presentation. And true enough, it is a taste of Malaysia nasi lemak indeed!

3. Anson Town Bistro
More Ipoh food places can be found in Singapore and Anson Town Bistro is one of the recommended ones. They have 2 outlets, and 1 outlet is located at Ark@Gambas and the other is at Changi Road. We went to the one at Jalan Gambas and were amazed that despite the remote location, the place is almost full house during our Saturday noon. They offer quite a range of Ipoh local dishes such as Curry Chee Cheong Fun, Ipoh Hor Fun, Curry Noodles, Rojak and more. Full menu here.
My favourites are their Chee Cheong Fun, Curry Noodles and Rojak.

4. Jia Bin Klang Bak Kut Teh 嘉宾 巴生肉骨茶
Klang Bak Kut Teh has the dry version and Jia Bin Klang Bak Kut Teh served both version. I visited few times and I personally think their quality is consistent as compared to the Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh in Geylang. Thus, I would recommend visiting this rather than queuing for that. The price here is reasonable and the service staffs are friendly.

5. Feng Xiang Bak Kut Teh
Feng Xiang Klang Bak Kut Teh is another Malaysian-style bak kut teh to go if you are missing it. The stall is started by Malaysians who grew up in Klang. Feng Xiang Klang Bak Kut Teh has two outlets, and we went to the one at Beauty World Centre. You can find their first outlet at Kallang. They also offer fried porridge which I do recommend to try. I love their flavourful, wok hei porridge.

6. Eastern House of Seafood- KL Hokkien Mee
Eastern House of Seafood is known for its zichar and KL Hokkien Mee. I visited their previous space at Geylang once before they moved to this new place. I did my second visit to their new place to satisfy my cravings for KL Hokkien Mee. If you miss KL Hokkien Mee, can try their version that comes with the crispy pork lard and drenched with sweet and savory sauce.When I posted on tiktok video, there are few negative comments about their service attitude so do take note on that. As for myself, my dining experience with them were okay, The aunty who served me was nice and friendly. Oh ya.. do order Babalong drink when you are there too!

7. Ampang Yong Tau Foo
There are two Yong Tau Foo shops at the same row of Upper Thomson Road. But the one I tried is 922 Upper Thomson Road where you can see the green signage at the shopfront. The Hakka-style yong tau foo comes with a mixture of ingredients such as fish balls, tau kee, bittergourd, brinjal, lady’s finger and more. The plate of ingredients are drenched in a starchy, savoury brown sauce and is charged by the number of persons dining. Do order their yam rice to go with it. Overall is not bad but a bit salty and not the best I had. Nevertheless, it still a comforting taste of home I guess. Click my tiktok video here to see the snippets.
Address: 922 Upper Thomson Road
Opening Hours: Daily 9:00AM- 8:00PM
