  WHAT’S LIVING IN Eunos LIKE?

Eunos, also known as Geylang East, is a small neighborhood in the Eastern region of Singapore with an area of just 2.58 square kilometers (1 square mile). Originally a large Malay village called “Kampong Melayu”, Eunos was later renamed in honor of its founder, Mohammad Eunos Abdullah, who was the Chairman and co-founder of the Singapore Malay Union.

The Eunos area is well-served by public bus routes and the Eunos MRT station, as well as Paya Lebar MRT to its West and Kembangan MRT to its East. The neighborhood has convenient amenities nearby, with minimarts and convenient stores such as Fairprice and Eunos Minimart located within reasonable walking distance from most areas within the cozy neighborhood.

Eunos is not short of eateries either, with many local hawker centres dotted around the neighborhood, including some famous hawker stalls that have been around since the 1960s serving up local favorites such as hokkien mee and soy chicken rice. There is only one primary school located in this neighborhood (Eunos Primary School), however families can look in the neighboring East Coast areas for nearby alternatives.

This neighborhood largely contains HDB estates, with condominiums and terraced houses mostly located to the East of Eunos in the neighbouring Kembangan estates. Given that fact, there tends to be a lower number of expatriates living in this neighborhood. That being said, the relatively cheaper housing prices draws in young locals and some expatriate professionals, singles, and couples. The East region generally tends to attract more families due to less crowds, more community living, and a wider range of options for outdoor activities – and Eunos is no exception.

Eunos is bordered on the north by Kampong Ubi, on the east by Kembangan and Frankel, on the south by Katong and Mountbatten, and on the west by Geylang.

Kim’s Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee

A familiar brand amongst locals established around the 1960s, Kim’s Fried Hokkien Mee is run by Mr. Tan Kue Kim who infamously wears a long-sleeved shirt and gold Rolex while frying up a plate of humble Hokkien Mee. Hokkien Mee is a savory noodle dish from Singapore and Malaysia that has origins in the Fujian province in China. Egg noodles and rice noodles are traditionally stir-fried with prawns, squid, pork, eggs and garnished with lard, lime and sambal chilli.

A simple and convenient “zi char” coffee shop in the Eunos neighborhood. “Zi Char” stalls are basically Chinese food stalls that have the capability of serving up a large variety of a-la-carte dishes on demand. This means you get a wide variety of Chinese cuisine to sample at friendly local hawker centre prices!

Hai Kee Soy Chicken Rice
Hai Kee Soy Chicken Rice 1A EUNOS CRESCENT, SINGAPORE 401001 MAP

A family-run eatery that dates back to 1959, this stall selling their popular brand of soy chicken rice is now run by the founder’s 25-year old grandson. The chicken in this dish is well-marinated with a secret family blend of soy sauce and is served with fragrant rice. The recipes stem from age-old recipes and learned techniques in the art of chicken braising. The stall is open from 9:30am till 6:30-7:30pm daily, however they usually sell out a couple of hours before closing so be sure to get in there early. With only a few Hai Kee outlets in the East, Eunos is one lucky neighborhood to have one right at its doorstep.
