Sin Sin Prawn Crackers – Local Heritage with Amazing Flavour

Sin Sin Prawn Crackers

Established in 1974, Sin Sin Ngoh Hiang Prawn Crackers is one of the oldest prawn cracker stalls in Singapore. They start from the humble beginning in past and did not change much until now. The owner here is a couple who growing up by tasting a wide variety of ngoh hiang in Singapore until they revamped their own menu. Approximately there are around 15 menus here and all made fresh daily. Just take a peek whatever you like and enjoy.

Sin Sin Prawn Crackers

Situated on the Toa Payoh Lor 8 Food Market, Sin Sin Prawn Ngoh Hiang Prawn Crackers comes in a very small stall with eye-catching food gallery at the front. The kitchen is located on the backside of that food gallery, but you just can smell the nicely cooked ngoh hiang from far. It was a monday afternoon and service was pretty efficient. The food was served at my table within 5 – 8 minutes.

Some of you might be confused to choose which menu is worth the calories. Because the option is a lot and most of them look really good as you expected before. To cover that, this guide will provide you the answer.

Ngoh Hiang

Ngoh Hiang

Prawn Roll

The Prawn Roll as known as Ngoh Hiang (S$ 1.00) is, of course, the signature menu here. Featuring the five-spice meat rolls, wrapped in crispy bean curd skin. It's crispy, juicy, and flavourful. I definitely love the right consistency between salty and sweet in every bite of it. Do have this while it lasts.

Prawn Fritters

Prawn Fritters

The crowd pleaser menu is Prawn Fritters (S$ 0.60). A doughy nugget of little shrimp with unbelievable crispy and salty texture. Since it comes in a petite size, just take at least 2 or 3 pieces to understand the goodness of it.  

Pink Sausage (S$ 1.00) is quite good as well. The meat is just crispy on the outside but remains tender on the inside. However, the taste is quite plain.

Fish Nugget

Fish Cake

Fish Cake (S$ 1.00) is also must-try. The freshness of that fish with a hint of crispiness from that battered is just entertaining. Salty yet savory on every bite of it.


Fish Balls

Meat Balls

Fried Yam

Other ingredients including Tofu (S$ 0.60), Egg (S$ 0.60), and Meat Ball (S$ 0.60) might become somebody else's favorite since everything made fresh and looks appealing on the display. I do love their tofu since it got a silky and soft texture like unusual.

Fried Mee Hon

Before you leaving this stall, make sure to taste the Fried Mee Hon (S$ 1.00). A nicely cooked rice vermicelli with a hint of tomato sauce and soy sauce is undeniably delicious. It's moist, fragrant, and tasty. Just add two tablespoons of chili sauce for the extra heat. 

Sin Sin Prawn Crackers

Sin Sin Prawn Crackers is definitely worth a visit. Even though, the place is quite far from Toa Payoh MRT Station which is 15 – 20 minutes by walk, I still enjoy my meal to the fullest. Tasty and affordable.
