10. Qi Ji

Qi Ji is no longer foreign to most of us as it is one of the more economical eateries, serving us local delicacies. What I am highlighting here is actually their Popiah menu. Popiah is known to originate from Fujian Province in China. It can be eaten as a snack or even an accompaniment with your meal.

You can opt for the Prawn Popiah (SGD2.80) or the Premium Popiah (SGD3.90). The difference between these two is the fillings, the latter with an addition of chicken bits and crab bits. What I like best about the Popiah at Qi Ji is the spiciness of the chili. But fret not for those who can't take spicy. You can always opt for non-spicy and still enjoy it!

Address: Various outlets across the island
Operation Hours: Varies from outlet to outlet
