Pleasantly Suprised

Shrouded in a mist of satay grill smoke on first glance you know this is Singaporian authentic in its offerings. A pleasant little layout and vast array of dishes such as BBQ stingray (a must), Singaporian Satay, Oyster Omelette, sugar cane juice, BBQ chicken wings to name a few. Try and get there... read more

Chomp Chomp is located near serangoon garden and in the middle of many terraces houses. Therefore it is inaccessible by train. Would suggest you to take a cab down if you are unfamiliar to this place. This place is also very famous among local, especially late evening for supper. A great place for gathering after work to chill and have... More

Initially the name caught my eye when I saw it in the Lonely Planet - how can you not like a hawker stall that's called Chomp Chomp? - but when a work colleague, who lived in Singapore for 14 years, got all misty-eyed over her 'local' I had to go. I was glad I did. Ignore one piece of information... More

Came for dinner on a Sunday, place was crowded & crampy but luckily got 2 vacant seats for us. Stall vendors were aggressive & competitive, it's ok as long as they dont give black & long faces if we turned them down. So many Sugarcane stalls fighting for customers, i think 6. So many Satay stalls, about 5. Many BBQ... More

Located in my mothers home suburb of Serangoon Gardens, Chomp chomp is a fantastic cheap eat and a place to enjoy the atmosphere. I recommend a visit.

With a history dating 50 years or so, Chomp Chomp is synonymous with FOOD and known among any True Blue Singaporean. Times passed, stalls changed, and it;s a pity there are unfortunatey, stall duplications today. I think the oldest surviving stall is the fruit juice stall operated by 2 brothers. For those who know, the infamous Orchard Road "Car Park",... More

Standards have dropped over the years. I would have chosen newton hawker over chomp chomp. Would advice to go there via public transport. Driving is discouraged due to the lack of parking spaces

Retaining the layout of hawker centres from the past, this is the last surviving one where you will get a taste of what it is like to have a meal like a local in the old days. If you do not mind the long wait for a table, it is a great place to sample local street food like fried... More

This place is well known amongst locals and is often the first stop for visitors wanting to taste a variety of good local fare all in one spot. The food here is exceptional, if a little repetitive. The stalls have obviously not been curated as you'll have multiple stalls selling subtle variations of the same thing. Grilled seafood, chicken wings,... More
