Jalan Besar is home to a high concentration of famous eats: from dim sum and laksa to scissor-cut curry rice and fish soup. It’s also where you’ll find Berseh Food Centre, which was founded in 1975. And while this may not be the biggest food centre around, it’s the neighbourhood’s go-to destination for hearty and affordable grub.
Besides the usual suspects such as fried kway teow, oyster omelette and curry chicken noodles, you’ll also encounter a few rather unique options: including pig trotter jelly and turtle soup. There’s also Halal mookata, plus nasi lemak made by two young hawkerpreneurs.
