Snaking long queues can be found at the front of this Hokkien Mee store as it was awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand & have been featured in the Michelin Guide.

Hong Heng Fried Sotong Prawn Mee is no stranger to those who frequent Tiong Bahru Marker with it's semi-wet stir-fried noodles and prawns cooked in prawn broth & a side of sweet sambal chilli.

It is a decent plate of hokkien mee no doubt, but I felt that it was lacking some wok hei (wok's smokiness) and a thicker prawn stock/base to bring out the flavours of the seafood used. Nonetheless, still one of the must-haves to go for (if the queue is short) when you're around!

This stall has been awarded Michelin Bib Gourmand and I think it serves up a pretty decent plate of Hokkien Mee ($4/5/6). The noodles are on the drier side, but still fragrant and infused with wok hei. There is a good amount of prawns, squid and pork slices. The chilli is not super spicy but it goes well with the noodles and a dash of lime juice. Although this is not my favourite hokkien mee as I generally prefer mine to be more saucy, this is still quite tasty.

Generous amount of food and ingredients for $6. Taste wise - it is decent, with a subtle hint of wok hei. The alkaline taste of the noodles is still present though. Would have preferred if the wok hei was stronger.

Overall the dish is alright, but I wouldn't bother if there is a long queue. The dish also has other price options at $4 and $5.

How did it get its Michelin? There’s no wok hey, no smokiness, it’s lacking the Unami prawn broth... the pork belly is blanched, the noodles are reeking of kee tasting alkaline. The taste is blend, the chilli doesn’t have the punch.

However one thing commendable is the portion of sotong the give.

Ate it during CB. So the queue was like only 10 mins Long. Phew

I am absolutely infatuated with hokkien mee and had high hopes because of its award. However, it felt lacking compared to the other Bib Gourmand hokkien mee, which was stunning.

While lacking wok hei, this plate of 𝗵𝗼𝗸𝗸𝗶𝗲𝗻 𝗺𝗲𝗲 ($4) still contained a decent amount of flavour but honestly as a whole, it felt pretty bland to me — though the chili and lime helped salvage the flatness somewhat. But even the chili, an important aspect of hokkien mee, felt a bit pedestrian. That's coming from someone who prefers Tiong Bahru Yi Sheng's supposedly more subdued flavours (but insanely good chili) over something more intense like Tian Tian Lai.

I would say the texture was marvelous though. A slightly wetter type but not too wet, where the noodles felt perfectly moist while retaining a good bite and springiness. Maybe it's an issue of consistency (I've seen reviews about it being super flavourful), but it's a pity the flavours didn't do justice to the great frying, which it truly deserved.

Taste has been consistent over the years. It is slightly wet but gravy is thick and flavourful. Sotong is fresh but freshness of prawns vary from time to time. The chili is the best hokkein mee chili and goes so well with it.
