I did tried Hoover rojak, the queue is so long but I think the rojak is on the wet side. I don't think it is really nice but the wait just don't justify the food. But the stall just beside the rojak is duck rice and porridge. Yet to try it but it look nice.
My recommendations are: 1. The stall selling Malay rice. Known for her sotongs and bergedia. Quite pricey. She charges her sotongs are market price, but they are all big and almost always with big chunks of sotong eggs. Stall close on Sunday 2. The braised duck rice next to the rojak stall. One of the best in Singapore. I usually tapau half a duck $15. 3. Hoover rojak. Also one of the best in Singapore. The only setback is that there is always a queue.
Keano is off the opinion that Whampoa Mkt is an awesome place for breakfast. There is the breakfast wing (nearer to wet market) and the lunch and dinner wing.
So we went there this morning and wasn't disappointed. Here's what we ate:
This kato jian rice is really quite yummy. Just look at the plate. The taopok is super tasty. Drool...
Curry chicken was nice but not soft enough. Just the odd day perhaps?
This is the STALL. They serve from 7am to lunch time.
This lor mee is quite disappointing considering how good the main branch in Amoy is.
Must teach the staff properly lah.
This tao huay was ordered by a die-hard fan colleague of mine. He says it the best bar none. :). Just looking at it, I wouldn't dispute. He didn't leave any for me. I'll just have to order it next time as queue was forming.
Yes, I am recommending all my friends here to go for breakfast at Whampoa. This wing of the hawker centre is different from the one selling the famous Malay Rice and Hokkien Mee which is opened for lunch and dinner.
Personally, my favourite is the Char Bee Hoon stall (alamak, sori forgot to take down unit number) facing the wet market. It is next to a Prawn Mee stall which is quite popular. I am a typical Cantonese, so my Bee Hoon would always go with a bowl of peanut porridge (one of the best I ever tasted), also from the same stall. Follow by a yu tiao from a stall a few units to the right of the Curry Rice. For those who enjoy this typical type of Cantonese breakfast, I would urge that you give this a try.
My seond favourite is the Teo Chew Mee (facing the condominium), whose business is the best in the hawker centre, follow by the Curry Rice ( refers to Cactuskit photos) and then the Mee Siam at a stall (facing the wet market) whose sign board is written with MEE SIAM & LONTONG. Ok ok friends, I know I am quite an idiot to describe the stalls the way I do. Please give me two days, I will go take down all the names and unit numbers and update you guys. At the moment, please bear with me.
Hope you guys would find my recommendations worth eating. Oh yeah......as Cacuskit said, forget about the so called Amoy Street Lor Mee there (They are giving the main branch a bad name).
I second keano views on the Teo Chew Mee. Had bah chor mee this morning and its really good. The mee is super Q and the fried garlic makes the mee super frangance. Not to forget, the won ton that comes along with the mee is yummy... I am drooling right now....
And cactuskit, dun worry the tao huay store will be there to stay. Buy u one next time we re-visit there.. :p

yes, i agree that the nondescript-looking prawn mee stall is pretty good, having tried it twice. unfortunately, i cannot remember the name of the stall. also, i don't remember this stall being around in the 'old' pre-renovation whampoa mkt.
