Swee Guan's fried hokkien mee is one of my favorite with its unique intense smoky wokhei flavour from the use of a charcoal stove.

The brother of Swee Guan's owner runs his own stall along East Coast Road and has also set up shop at the East Coast Lagoon FC.

@jooeunchung and I cannot help but go "daebak" at the strong robust smoky wokhei flavours. I would have preferred a little "wetter" version but instead the noodles has really soaked the sweet umani-filled flavours of the stock.

The queue though is a little confusing and hard to navigate. It may be better to pop by during non-peak hours.

The wokhey, chilli, texture, taste and smell. Believe its the best one i ever tasted.

Together with Swee Guan, Nam Sing and Tiong Bahru Yi Sheng, these make up my top few places to go to for fried hokkien mee in Singapore as you can truly savor the wok hei in every strand of the noodle. Whether you prefer the dry or wet version, choosing either one of these places will surely satisfy your craving. Over at this stall, the noodles are fried till its soft with a wetter consistency that you can literally slurp them all up. The usual suspects of squid and prawns are added into the dish with a scoop of pork lard to go along with it. A new pairing for fried hokkien mee can also be experienced here as they have a stall just beside the fried noodle, selling chicken, pork, mutton and the unique pork belly satay.

I think I can taste the wok hei just by looking at this photo😂 Finally tried the famous Geylang Lorong 29 Charcoal Fried Hokkien Mee and it did not disappoint! We ordered the $15 portion for 3 pax, and it is packed with a generous amount of prawn, squid, pork belly and lard cubes. The noodle is on the wetter side and it is thoroughly infused with wok hei - love the robust flavours and fragrance that each bite brings. Glad my journey to the East paid off!

The wait is interminably long even when there’s no crowd, but if you like your hokkien mee very rich and slightly wet, this definitely fits the bill.

Soaked in prawn-y umami, the egg-streaked noodles are soft and stained with a pleasing smokiness, and are accompanied by plenty of crunchy lard and sotong. The small portion has 3-4 fresh and bouncy prawns, which is great, but they tend to be a little stingy with the sambal.

Taste: 3.5/5

Geylang Lorong 29 Charcoal Hokkien Mee, famously known for their traditional frying over charcoal fire. Read a number of mixed reviews about fluctuating standards, but I was really glad to have ordered, which made every tummy on the table happy.

Every lobster Fried Hokkien Mee would be wrapped nicely in Opeh leaf, which is from the betel nut tree. For the normal rendition, only portions costing $15 and above would be wrapped. It surely served as an influential visual aid to call it a traditional Hokkien Mee, as the older generation believed that the leaf would impart a subtle woody aroma to the noodles, which my parents believed too.

Expect to slurp up yellow noodles and beehoon drenched in an umami-filled stock, enhanced by the delightful aroma of fried garlic and some flavorsome pork lard. My curiosity was fulfilled the moment I tasted a distinct smokey wok hei, different from the usual hokkien mees, and parents-verified. It had to be from the charcoal fire. This flavour bomb was also embellished with generous fresh seafood like prawns and squids, but of course the star had to be the sweet lobster.

Not the most mind-blowing part yet, until the sambal chili touches your taste buds. Fragrant is an understatement. Elevating the dish with a whole new complexity without being overly spicy, but a stimulating umami explosion again. Think hae bee hiam-filled sambal chili. Uncle asked if I liked, of course I do! Swept the entire bowl clean even without noodles.

Islandwide delivery without minimum order at a fixed delivery cost of $10, going entirely to drivers. Uncle mentioned that he doesn’t know how to use Instagram, so do check out their fb page. Prompt responses received through WhatsApp ordering. Pre-order 1 day in advance required.
