Best ngoh hiang stalls in Singapore
Ngoh hiang, or wu xiang, has always been my go-to snack to share with family or a large group of friends when we are at a hawker centre. I simply love the delightfully sinful fried fritters, with my top picks being crispy prawn cracker, fried prawn-tofu roll, five spice roll and more. These are typically enjoyed with chilli sauce or the addictive pink sweet sauce. If you like ngoh hiang too, here’s our guide to the best ngoh hiang stalls in Singapore!
