Tanglin Halt Food Centre is one of those hawker centres that have a few Halal stalls selling sedap Muslim food, but not so often talked about on social media.
Queenstown Lontong is one stall I would recommend, which some would describe as a “hidden gem”.
Located at the quieter side of Tanglin Halt Food Centre, its line during early mornings does not lie though.
Boasting a business since the 1960s, Queenstown Lontong won’t disappoint with its delicious recipe passed down through 3 generations.
While the stall says “Lontong”, they also serve up Nasi Lemak ($3), Mee Rebus ($3), Mee Siam ($3), Laksa ($3), Mee Soto ($3), and Soto Ayam ($3).
There are also sides such as Chicken Wings and Samsosas, which are also quite highly sought after by hungry customers.
The presentation of its noodle dishes such as the Mee Rebus ($3) was not quite like the others.
The gravy was rich, robust, and came piping hot. Another plus point was their home-made sambal with ikan billis that added a beautiful touch of sweetness.
I also need to talk about its Bergedil. Instead of the typical flat round shape, you get two deep-fried potato balls with fluffy fillings. Lovely.
Their Mee Soto ($3) was also one of the best I had in recent times, with robust and flavourful broth with a strong spicy kick.
(If you never tried Mee Soto before, it is a spicy noodle soup dish that combines the Indonesian chicken broth known as soto ayam with thick yellow Hokkien noodles.)
Some Mee Soto can be mild but this was not, one I would describe as “shiok”. Also, portion was considered generous for its pricing.
