I’ve not eaten at Wok Hey for a while but it still seems to be a crowd favourite. Although the queues have mellowed down since their opening, we still had five people before us waiting for their orders.

I got my usual Shanghai Fried Rice with Shrimp with nai bai, broccoli and tobikko. Each add-on is $1, and I highly recommend getting the tobikko because they’re very generous with it for a dollar! Plus, who doesn’t love tobikko?! I opted for brown rice instead of Japanese white rice at no extra charge, which was awesome. I love the extra bite in brown rice, but some places charge more for it. You get an option for spicy or non-spicy, where a dollop of chilli oil will be spooned into your box later. I recommend this if you like spicy stuff!

Once your order is placed into the queue, you can wait by the frying station and watch the chefs work their magic. This is a purely takeaway stall, so everyone’s orders are packed into iconic American “Chinese takeout” containers (psst, Wok Hey has even taken it up a notch and made a Singaporean design on their container box). While it would be awesome to have this hot and fresh off the wok, it was still very good even after it had cooled down once we reached home. I really liked the generous amounts of tobikko provided, and there’s quite a good amount of crystal prawns for $7.30. The Nai bai adds a nice crunch to the savoury Shanghai fried rice, whereas the broccoli was soft and easy to chew. Not the crunchy broccoli I’m used to, but I don’t hate it.

Overall very yummy meal that’s convenient to get for lunch or on the way back home!
