noodles texture was pretty decent, and the bowl of noodles were served a variety of ingredients like minced meat, braised mushrooms, vegetables and crispy ikan bilis. i would prefer it more if the sauce has a spicy punch. overall, a decent bowl but would not travel to the east especially for this (as a west sider).

light and sweet broth, noodles texture was 10/10. minced meat was well seasoned and sliced fish was very nice to bite. love the mani cai that was used as well.

this bowl of you mian taste so much like home.
as compared to other bowls of you mian I've tasted, this was nothing exceptional. however, I personally love this as it really tastes very homely. the soup was pretty nice. the texture of the you mian was perfect and very nice to slurp on. the meat was well seasoned and I love the fact that they used spinach as the vegetable. definitely a decent bowl of you mian to have if ever in the vicinity!

it's super worth for $4 per bowl.
firstly for the you mian soup, the soup taste light yet sweet thanks to the prawns. the prawns are really fresh and huge, definitely a plus due to its price point. the meatball was very flavourful. bonus for using mani cai as the main vegetable. the noodles are quite qq as well.
as for the dry you mian, the chilli was the star of the dish. the spice slowly seeps and tingle into your tastebuds instead of the in-your-face boom at first tasting. however, the sweet soy sauce base for the noodles was a tad too sweet for my liking.

overall, the you mian soup deserves an A while the dry you mian pales in comparison.

an interesting tasting soup we have here. it smells like chicken soup and when you actually taste the soup, it taste like herbal chicken soup (something along that line, but just faint). but it definitely doesn't taste like the typical you mian soup out there.

just like a typical bowl of you mian in every food court out there, this one is no exception when it comes to the slightly bland soup. the meat was seasoned and has some flavours which was the saving grace of this bowl.

an average bowl of you mian, however I would say that it is a good comfort food as the soup reminds me of the chicken maggi mee flavour. noodle texture is alright and meat taste okay too.

any bowl of you mian which utilise spinach will automatically become one of my favourites. furthermore the soup was creamy-ish in texture partly due to the beatened eggs which I love. the noodle texture is not bad as well and there was a generous portion of minced meat served there. it's a decent bowl of you mian, and one of the better ones found in hawker centres.

albeit the noodle texture was just normal to me, the broth itself deserves an A. I'm not sure how to actually describe the broth, but it's just so good until its last drop. yes I polished my bowl off. special mention to the spinach and mushroom, I really love these combi in a bowl of you mian. the minced meat was normal but good and kudos to the generous portion of meat given.

this is a unique bowl of you mian and apparently it has no MSG included. it does taste healthy in a good way.
you have the option to add a splash of sesame oil which I think it is a great idea because it enhanced the flavour of the soup more.
I personally enjoyed the generous amount of mani cai, sliced pork and minced pork. it taste good.
I also love the ikan bilis because it wasn't very salty as compared to typical ikan bilis in other you mian stalls. I love the less salty taste and the crunch is a plus point.
the texture of the noodles was decent as well. this one is definitely worth the try.


the visual of this bowl of you mian looks promising, however the taste to me says otherwise. the minced meat was a little bit too salty for my liking and the texture of the noodles is just like the typical you mian out there. but I do like the crunchiness of the ikan bilis as well as the meatballs that comes with it.

do not belittle this bowl of mee hoon kuay!
at first glance, it looks super plain and uninteresting but you have to dig deeper for a surprise!
at the bottom of the bowl lies braised mushrooms and more mani cai. this bowl came with meatballs instead of minced meat as the latter ran out.
the flavour of the soup gets better the more you drink it, probably because the bulk of the goodness are at the bottom, so remember to mix it well!
the texture of the mee hoon kuay is chewy and starchy but I really like it.

you mian & iced coffee enthusiast with lacklustre reviews, oops
