Wanted to try this for awhile now after hearing of raving reviews, so decided to try it out today.
Expected a long queue but surprisingly it wasn't. Ordered the claypot hokkien mee at $10 for 2 pax.
When the food came, I was first drawn to the deep fried pork belly and then the amount of other ingredients in the claypot. There was squid, prawns, clams, and meat mixed with the noodles in seafood broth.
The most important thing for me in hokkien mee is the broth. It needs to have the wok hei taste and prawn taste has to be distinct. Furthermore, it has to be thick, but not till like lor mee texture. Alas, this broth to me was bland and only after adding in the sambal only did it have some kick to it. I was kind of disappointed as I expected more flavour from the broth.
Would I come back again? Most probably not. Maybe only to try the other hokkien mee at the opposite market.
