I first heard of Hokkien Man Hokkien Mee when news of a former three Michelin-star French restaurant sous chef opening a Hokkien Mee stall at Toa Payoh made headlines last year. One year on, I finally popped by to try the famed Hokkien Mee and surprisingly, there was no queue during weekday lunch hour. I ordered the $6 portion which comes with a very generous serving of prawns (there are actually 3 prawns!), pork belly and squid. The prawns are sizeable, fresh and crunchy, and the squids are not overcooked and are still very tender. The noodles are definitely on the wetter side, soaking up the flavourful stock that is infused with the sweetness of the seafood and pork. The chilli is not super fiery, but it adds a savoury edge to the noodles. The strong flavours did get a little jelak for me towards the end of the meal, but an extra squeeze of lime juice would have taken care of that easily. Overall, this is a pretty good plate of Hokkien Mee that is slurp-worthy!
