It’s time for dinner and you only have $10 for dinner in Tiong Bahru until tomorrow’s payday. If that sounds all too familiar, check out these five best places at the Tiong Bahru Food Center where you can have affordable meals.
Tiong Bahru Fried Kway Teow
Hawker centers won’t be complete without a plate of kway teow. This stall opens until 10:30 p.m. from Thursday to Tuesday. Try the Fried Kway Teow for as low as $3, so you can be full already with just $10.
The low price isn’t the only secret for Tiong Bahru Fried Kway Teow’s success. The business has run for over 40 years by using flavorful ingredients like lup cheong (Chinese sausage) and hum (cockles).
Min Nan Pork Ribs Prawn Noodle
The stall’s Pork Ribs Prawn Mee is popular during the lunch crowd. If you were unable to wait in line, you can have a bowl of seafood-pork stew for at least $4.50 during dinnertime.

You should also have an early dinner at the Tiong Bahru Braised Duck, which is only open until 8 p.m. The stall is closed on Tuesday and Sunday, so take note of the schedule if you’re craving duck rice.
