round 10 people in front of me. Ended up queueing around 1h10min.

Ordered the “All-in-One” Combo MHK ($5) with both dry and soup versions. Soup and ingredients were packed separately (thankfully) and it took me about 1h to travel home before I could dig into these bowls of MHK.

Impressed by my first sip of the soup, the wokhey smell was mild yet addictive. Unfortunately, the wokhey taste started fading off after a while as the palate started getting used to the taste. The MHK was clumped together by the time I consumed it so it’s not exactly fair to review it’s texture, but I like the ingredients in the following order: pork slices, minced pork, prawn ball and pork ball. Would have to say that the soup won my heart over though 😂 Oh and the chilli was 💯

The dry version’s wokhey was so much stronger but the sauce was salty too. Even though I prefer the wokhey in this better, I think overall as a dish, the soup version was better.

Will come back again to try the MHK when dine-in is permitted!

The mhk was chewy and not doughy, liked it! It’s hand torn, which I like bc it gives textural variation to the mhk. Broth was tasty, there was a wokhei taste?? The basic version is $3.50, signature version comes with meatball, pork slices, and prawn ball which means it’s $0.50 per add-on. Pork slices were tender, meatball was alright but nothing to shout about, prawn ball was crunchy. The veg here was spinach I think. Would come back for the basic version as that’s enough to satisfy me!

Stoked that Singapore’s hawker culture was inscribed into @unesco intangible culture heritage list. And it’s great to try food served by hawkerpreneurs such as this piping hot bowl of mee hoon kway from @jiak_song at Block 11 Telok Blangah Crescent Food Centre (01-108).

Having heard so much about them and considering how it isn’t the most convenient of places, we decided to go big and have the Signature All-In Combo Mee Hoon Kway Soup ($5). Basically, mee hoon kway with minced pork, pork balls, prawn balls, soft-boiled egg, vegetables and fried ikan bilis (anchovies).

The mee hoon kway is made in stall using a noodle machine. What I like about them is the chewy, doughy noodles that’s cooked al dente, though it’s firmer than what you’ll get elsewhere.

What stood out is the handmade prawn balls which isn’t something you usually find in mee hoon kway. I enjoyed how bouncy and fresh the prawns were. The meat balls on the other hand could’ve a little more flavour.

My take on the ikan bilis soup is that while it was pleasant and comforting, it didn’t wow me over. The flavour could’ve been stronger and didn’t have that umami I was looking for.

The piquant, tangy, flavourful chilli sauce that has some fermented soy beans (tau cheo) is a noteworthy mention too.

Would I make the journey down? Not really.

Unless I happen to be in the area and I’m looking to satisfy my ban mian/ mee hoon kway cravings.

Live near Telok Blangah? Make your way down to JIAK SONG, a humble hawker stall by MasterChef finalist Aaron Wong, selling mee hoon kway, a type of thick-cut handmade pulled noodle. The star here is their Signature Dry Mee Hoon Kway ($3.50), which come with the usual minced pork, spinach, and egg. You'll want to give this a good mix, getting the egg to coat each slice of al dente noodle. Try the Signature All-In Combo Soup ($5) as well, which also comes with pork slices and shrimp balls in a rich pork broth!

Always a long queue at this newly opened hawker stall by MasterChef finalist. He rolls out each batch of mee hoon kway upon order so it’s always fresh! The Signature Dry Mee Hoon Kway ($3.50) comes with the usual minced pork, spinach, and egg, and the noodles are super fun to eat: chewy with a nice bite!
