While Chee Cheong Fun has been around in Singapore (typically as breakfast food) for a while, there has been many new stalls opening up with “ex-chefs” providing restaurant quality rolls at humble prices.

Chee Cheong Fun is a popular dish in Singapore that originated from Southern China, made from steamed rice flour rolls.

They used to be ‘simpler’ in nature, served with a sweet and savoury sauce made from soy sauce, sesame oil, and chili paste.

We get many now that are filled with various ingredients such as shrimp, BBQ pork, mushrooms and more; and even come in various colours.

There are many places in Singapore where you can find Chee Cheong Fun, but some are better than others.

For slurp-worthy rolls, here is our picks for the well-loved Chee Cheong Fun in Singapore:

Pin Wei Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun
Pek Kio Market & Food Centre #01-25, 41A Cambridge Road, Singapore 211041
Tel: +65 8180 2013
Opening Hours: 6:30am – 2pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Steamed Rice Rolls In Singapore With Michelin Recommendation
Pin Wei Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun is probably one of the best (meaning smooth, hand-made) and inexpensive Chee Cheong Fun that can be found in Singapore hawker centre.

Owner Eddy Tan has been making it for many years, after learning the craft from his hawker father.

The Michelin Plate awarded stall, makes their rice rolls fresh – no store-bought rice noodle sheets.

Pin Wei offers 4 variants available starting from $3: the plain Cheong Fun ($3), Char Siew ($4), Prawns ($5), and Scallop ($6).

Please eat this while it is hot, the Chee Cheong Fun is so silky-smooth and gives you a pleasant mouthfeel that may just bring you back to Hong Kong.

The Char Siew Cheong Fun ($4) was packed with small bits of char siew, which was to the sweeter side and added loads of flavours overall.

Chef Leung’s Authentic Hand-milled Rice Noodle Rolls
Chinatown Complex #02-096, 335 Smith Street, Singapore 050335
Opening Hours: 7am – 2pm (Tues, Fri – Sun), Closed Mon, Wed, Thurs

Handmade Cheong Fun That Sell Out Early At Chinatown Food Centre
Chef Leung, a 64 years old Hong Kong dim sum shifu, opened the hawker stall to preserve his lifelong Cheung Fun recipe.

The style of Cheung Fun served is the sort formed in thick ribbons, but with the toppings encased within.

The rice flour is also milled daily in store, which supposedly helps to control the texture and mouthfeel of the final product.

Starting with Prawn ($4.50), which is an ever-popular choice, this version has a generous portion of prawns built into it.

The sauce used for the Cheung Fun is a soy sauce and sesame oil mix, which is savoury and fragrant.

Other recommended flavours include Original ($2.80), Char Siew ($4), Pork ($3.50) and Tuna ($4.50).

Since they sell out in under 4 hours every day, you have to rise and shine early to get a bite of Chef Leung’s handmade Chee Cheong Fun.

Sing Lung HK Cheong Fun
Block 1 Beach Road, Singapore 190001
Opening Hours: 8:30am – 2pm (Mon, Wed – Sun), Closed Tues

Smooth Chee Cheong Fun With Michelin Bib Gourmand, At Beach Road
Sing Lung HK Cheong Fun though newly opened has gained some prominence for being included in the Michelin Guide Singapore 2022 with a Bib Gourmand.

Chef Kong has an impressive resume, previously worked in the kitchens of Crystal Jade, Yauatcha in London, and Mira in Hong Kong.

On the menu are four types of Hong Kong style Chee Cheong Fun – Prawn ($4), Char Siew ($4), Mushroom ($3.50), and Plain ($2.50).

The Prawn Chee Cheong Fun was considerably silky and smooth, though they were comparatively on the thicker side if compared to another well-known competitor stall.

But some may just enjoy this texture as it does not break apart easily. I wished there were more prawns (or plump ones) so that there would be a better skin to liao (ratio), but my friend reminded me that ”this is $4”.

Xin Kee Hong Kong Cheong Fun 鑫记港式肠粉
Golden Mile Food Centre #01-79, 505 Beach Road, Singapore 199583
Opening Hours: 8am – 3pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Peanut Sauce & Sweet Sauce Cheong Fun At Golden Mile Food Centre
I found this store while escaping the snaking queues of the famous Sing Lung HK Cheong Fun at Beach Road.

Xin Kee services up Chai Poh ($3.50), Peanut Sauce & Sweet Sauce ($3.50), Char Siew ($4), and Prawn Cheong Fun ($4.50).

There are sometimes occasional specials such as Youtiao Cheong Fun ($3.70) aka zha leong.

Each plate of the rice rolls is made fresh and upon order. Spot the two steaming trays in the corner of the shop, in which a layer of the mixture steams and firms up.

You may have last seen such presentation of Hong Kong-style Peanut Sauce & Sweet Sauce ($3.50) in a good Cantonese restaurant, but is a seldom seen but tasty combination in a hawker centre. It mainly relies on peanut butter and sweet sauce to give the plain cheong fun flavour.

The way it is presented, the cheong fun is cut into almost even pieces, drizzled with the two styles of sauces. The peanut sauce – thick, creamy, smooth and partly fragrant, seals this as one of the best renditions I had in Singapore.

Chang Le Chee Cheong Fun 尝乐猪肠粉
Chinatown Food Centre #02-050, 335 Smith Street, Singapore 050335
Opening Hours: 6:30am – 12pm (Wed – Sun), Closed Mon, Tues

Local-Style Rice Rolls For $2.20 With Tasty Sauces At Chinatown Food Centre
Chang Le Chee Cheong Fun 尝乐猪肠粉 caught my attention for being a no-frills local-style CCF stall, unlike the rest which are Cantonese-style wrapped with char siew, prawns and mushrooms.

Come to this stall if you prefer a light, traditional Chee Cheong Fun (2.20 for small, $3.30 for large) taste of yesteryears. And it starts operations from 6:30am.

While the rice rolls are not homemade but bought from a supplier, they are still steamed in-stall and served fresh.

There is only one item, so if you don’t like to choose, this is a perfect option. Rice rolls served plan (no filling) drizzled with sweet gravy and a light sprinkling of sesame seeds.

The dark sauce is homemade and was sweet but not over, as is the chilli sauce with dried shrimps added for that subtle umami notes. These are made using secret recipes from a veteran hawker.

Chef Wei HK Cheong Fun
40 Holland Drive, 01-39 Block 40, Singapore 270040
Opening Hours: 7am – 8:30pm (Mon – Sun)

Ex-Peach Garden Chef Opens Stalls (Almost EveryWhere)
Chef Thoo Chang Wei who is an ex-head dim sum chef from Peach Garden (Hotel Miramar) makes these rice rolls fresh from scratch over hot steamers.

17 outlets in Singapore, and counting. So expect consistency issues as well.

There are four choices on the menu, Plain Cheong Fun ($3), Mushroom Cheong Fun ($4), Char Siew Cheong Fun ($4), and Prawn Cheong Fun ($5).

The Mushroom Cheong Fun ($4) is an original creation from Chef Wei, with the smooth and moderately thin rice rolls filled with shitake and shimeji mushrooms.

For this price, you do get quite a sizable portion which was indeed restaurant-quality Cheong Fun in terms of the silky skin. It would have been more wonderful if the skin was thinner.

The drizzled Hong Kong-style sauce was fragrant and on the sweeter side, and I found myself having to put some of the addictive chilli sauce to balance out the sweetness.

Popular Guangzhou Rice Roll and Congee Shop At Far East Square
Yin Ji 银记肠粉店, a relatively famous congee and rice roll shop which originated in Guangzhou in the 50s, has its Singapore flagship at Far East Square.

It is one of the largest chain stores you can find in Guangzhou, and you can also find branches in Canada.

Yin Ji makes a decent rendition of the Fried Dough Roll with thin flour skin wrapping over moderately crisp you tiao, poured over with a secret recipe soya sauce.

The outer layer was silky yet retained a certain level of elasticity.

The rice rolls are said to be steamed with cloth so as to ensure the texture is paper thin.

Opening Hours: 7am – 10am (Tues, Thurs, Fri – Sun), Closed Mon, Wed

Old-school Chee Cheong Fun with Comforting Familiar Taste
If you’re looking for good nostalgic sort of Cheong Fun, you’d find it at Duo Ji Chee Cheong Fun.

They normally sell out by around the time they close (10am), so do go early to have a bite of their Cheong Fun ($2 for normal portion, $3 for bigger portion).

What sets them apart from other Chee Cheong Fun-s? Their rice rolls, though from a supplier, are made and delivered fresh, and once steamed is extremely tender after they cut it up diagonally.

Duo Ji Chee Cheong Fun also make their own unique sweet sauce, along with their homemade chilli too.

Separately, they look normal, but combined, it has the winning taste factor of comfort and nostalgia that maybe is the reason the crowds come back for more.

Modern Unique Cheong Fun with Smoked Salmon, Tobiko and Unagi
You thought you’ve seen all sorts of Cheong Fun but you’ve probably not tried traditional rice rolls but with fillings like Unagi or Smoked Salmon.

This gem of a store can be found in Holland Drive Food Centre located on the second floor, above the market downstairs.

The store offers Chee Cheong Fun served Plain ($2.50), Smoked Salmon ($6), Mushroom ($3.50), Prawn ($4), Liver Sausage ($6), and Unagi ($5). They really put the F-U-N in Cheong Fun…

The Smoked Salmon Cheong Fun ($6) comes with Tobiko (Flying Fish Roe) for that extra textural bliss, complementing the Smoked Salmon and freshly made rice rolls, made à la the Hong Kong way.

If you make a visit, do note that the Unagi Cheong Fun ($5) has limited number of servings daily.

Chee Cheong Fun Club
Maxwell Food Centre #01-38, 1 Kadayanallur Street, Singapore 069184
Opening Hours: 7:30am – 2pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Maxwell Stall with Interesting Curry and Laksa Chee Cheong Fun
I must admit that the Chee Cheong Fun Club has one of the most unique Cheong Fun offerings I’ve seen. The owner is originally from Kuala Lumpur and set up store here.

Chee Cheong Fun Club offer the Curry Chee Cheong Fun ($4.50), and Laksa Chee Cheong Fun ($4.50). Quite reasonably filled, the Curry version has meatballs, beancurd skin, fishcakes and more, while the Laksa version has the same meatballs, beancurd skin, and hard boiled egg.

The rice rolls here are made by a supplier, but with the family recipe from the owner. They make specific styles of rolls for different dishes.

The Mixed Sauce Sampler ($3.80), uses the more compact sort of rice roll, which is neatly drizzled on with iconic black sauce, red sauce and sesame sauce.

The Curry and Laksa offerings use another type of rice roll, great for pairing with the aromatic gravy.

Striking Pink Dragonfruit Cheong Fun At Tiong Bahru And Toa Payoh Lor 1
Yes, not only is Grandpa Homemade Cheung Fun 石磨腸粉 made from scratch, it is also known for their multi-coloured choices, as the they come in green (spinach) or pink (dragonfruit) on request.

The coloured ones being green (incorporated with spinach) and pink (dragonfruit) for an additional $0.20 – only available when it is not too busy.

This is as the metal tray used for steaming has to be meticulously scrubbed between each order.

If not, get it in plain too.

Get the Char Siew ($5.20) filling for your first try. The pork pieces are homemade with a secret marinade, also air-fried instead of oven-baked for a crispier texture. Did wish the rice roll layer was thinner and smoother though.

The classic pairing is the Prawn ($5.20), which comes with a few shrimps within the Cheong Fun. Other combinations include Plain ($3.90), Egg + Veg ($4.50), Egg + Veg + Sausage ($4.80), Prawn + Char Siew ($5.80), and Corn + Sausage ($5.80).
