Note: they changed location from below block 18, to the coffeeshop opposite: block 19 lorong 7 toa payoh

What can I say, everything was executed just right. The noodles are fried adequately before adding the broth to remove the alkaline taste in the yellow noodles. The ratio of yellow and white noodle is ideal. The broth is flavorful with savoury notes from the prawn shells and heads, balanced with sweet umami flavour from pork (stock similar to the famous Hokkien mee at Lorong 1 toa payoh which likes you to come everyday). Enough starch released from the noodles made the dish cohesive as a whole

Lastly the ingredients are really fresh! Prawns and squid are quite good quality for the price.

Would highly recommend. All the details were done right, bringing it close to a perfect plate of Hokkien mee. Maybe the only small thing that could be better is that it lacks a bit of wok hei (fire not big enough?)

Quite a famous Hokkien mee in Singapore

Done very traditionally with cut chillis and soy sauce (not sambal). The stock used to make the prawn mee is very very good, very pleasant tasting, with right about of savoriness, umami and sweetness from the pork inside the broth. The squid and prawn was very fresh which was a pleasant surprise as most places cut cost by giving inferior quality seafood with their Hokkien mee

Maybe it's a style thing but this Hokkien mee does not have a lot of wok hei, and the yellow noodles were not dry fried for long so there is still an alkaline taste which isn't necessarily bad.

Overall a good plate of Hokkien mee. Not my favorite but I can see why it has its share of fans. The stock though, probably one of the best among the Hokkien mee stalls in sg

Quite expensive, even with Burpple Beyond was about 15+ per person. However given the quality of the unagi it was worth it. The unagi was really nice and fleshy, I would say better than a particular location in bugis famous for their unagi that rhymes with na na.

Very decent bowl of dried ban mian. Everything went well together, the sauce and chilli was a good combi with the noodles. Noodles can be more dense though (since its ban mian), and dish can be less watery. There was a poached egg in the soup but think it would have been better on the noodles

One of the best teochew porridges imo. If you visit this place, be sure to get their:

1. otah - think the source it from the fishmonger in the wet market beside. It is really tasty and has large pieces of fish inside
2. Clams: fresh clams with a sweet tangy sauce that goes with it
3. 卤味:the stock sauce is really flavourful, their pig rectum (大肠头) is really clean, with a nice chew. Their meat is not over cook and has a really nice clean taste to it as well. Mix it with their chilli sauce!
4. Mince meat: their mince meat is slightly spicy, with some soybean paste sauce. Very deep flavours that go well together

Quality Teh Bing. Tea is of the right strength for me, condensed milk complemented well by giving a good bodied taste suitable for its strength. They steeped the tea with the right duration, giving just a very slight bitter aftertaste from the release of tannin compounds. Toast was also well done, with a kaya that taste homemade, not so sweet and still slightly chunky.

One big negative point however was the service. The place was empty and they made me sit outside, where they were burning some offerings. When I expressed my concerns, they told me the inside was reserved for customers who came to eat (but really. In an empty restaurants). No matter how good ur tea is (good but not to say mindblowing), would hesitate to go back. Already increasing my risk of diabetes with the sweet drink, need not increase my risk of lung cancer. The tea was not bitter but their service definitely was.

Competition is tight in lorong 8 for char kway teow with as many as 4 char kway teow stalls. This, however is in my opinion the best. They also have the longest queue though, even though you may not see it as they have a queue system.

The noodles is well fried with enough wok hei, seasoned with the right amount of dark soy sauce, which combines with the noodles really well. Generally on the wetter side, but not the wettest around. Really really yummy. Cockles are also very fresh and juicy. Overall very well executed and balanced dish.

Quite a famous stall with many positive reviews. Would agree with them, the soup is light enough to drink on its own, but thick enough to marry with the noodles, which is something I always look for in curry chicken noodles. There is a nutty flavour in the soup that I did not like at first, but after half the bowl really grew on me. Definitely in the top tier of curry chicken noodles.

This is a new product I assume only for a limited period of time. The cheese sauce goes well with the tomato sauce, giving something similar to chilli beef fries. Quite nice imo. The original cheese fries seems to fit better together though.

Blanco Court prawn mee has always been in the running for best prawn mee in Singapore. Came in with high expectations and it didn't disappoint. The soup was umami enough with the prawn stock and they definitely used a good amount of pork giving the soup a certain bit of sweetness. The prawns were relatively big even though I did not get the upgraded prawns. Would come again.
