Mind blowing Hokkien mee!

As a self professed Hokkien mee connoisseur, and having eaten at countless Hokkien mee stalls, I am very particular on my Hokkien mee. This Hokkien mee is one of, if not the most well executed Hokkien mee in Singapore. The noodles were prefried well with adequate "wok hei" before being simmered in a very well made prawn broth. The right amount of starch was released from the noodles, and the entire dish had a very good balance. The ratio of yellow noodle to thick beehoon is higher than most places, giving a starchier, richer but more alkaline flavour, similar to claypot noodles, which isn't a bad thing.

Hokkien mee stalls tend to be inconsistent as each batch may differ in frying times and technique, but you are be sure that you will get a good plate from this place.

This Hokkien Mee is owned by the brother of the original Geylang Lorong 29 Hokkien Mee place and has quite rave reviews, so I decided to try it out. It was quite disappointing though. I felt that the noodles were overcooked on our visit, maybe because they pre-fry the noodles in large batches before they add in the other ingredients (saw 2 big plates on the side). The stock they use for their Hokkien Mee also doesn’t have a strong sweet seafood taste and tastes predominantly of just lard. Aside from the overly soft noodles, it’s a bit overwhelmingly starchy (possibly because they just use yellow noodles) and was quite salty on our visit. I get that the draw here is that it’s cooked with charcoal but too many components of this dish were not that great. Not sure if it’s an off day but it was really a let down.

TLDR; loved it!

I've always been a fan of hookien mee that is soaked in broth, so i really enjoyed this dish! There was wok hei with a relatively generous serving of prawns and squid, worth a try!

Only gripe would be that its slightly too salty for me, but if you like salty food, this will hit all the right notes for you

One of the best hokkien mee so far! Broth used was really good - nice balance of prawn & pork stock. Ingredients are also relatively fresh and nicely cooked/integrated with the entire dish. Would definitely come back for more albeit the relatively more expensive price tag of $6 (for the smallest serving).

Rating: 4.5 / 5

Side notes: Would be very interested in comparing this with the "sister" stall, Swee Guan. I believe both owners are brothers that learnt how to cook hokkien mee from their father, the OG hokkien mee hawker (supposedly).

While its drier consistency was still there, the garlicky pungent robbed the noodles of its prawn flavour which was a real shame. Hopefully this was just a one-off letdown tonight.
On the other hand, we also had the Pork Belly satay 五花肉沙爹 from the adjacent stall which turned out to be a star. Unlikely the usual satay, the meat was chunky, tender and juicy; reminding us of the yummy Thai Moo Ping that we love.

Yknow what’s gooooood? This plate of sloppy mess right here. Hands down my ultimate food for local cuisine. The combination of noodles, seafood and prawn stock somehow just works brilliantly together. Not too wet or not too dry- my fav hkm mee are those damp ones and this Geylang outlet does a pretty darn good rendition of it! Though it’s all the way in the east, I’ll happily drive down here anytime 😬
