This store took over Teo’s, which was famous for its fishballs! You can give these minced meat noodles ($3) a miss - the noodles were mushy and dry with regular factory-produced toppings.

Settled for a bowl of dry prawn noodles with beehoon ($3.50) because the store ran out of soup AND kway teow - all before noon! The ingredients are surprisingly substantial, and I must say that the small bowl of soup I had on the side was extremely enjoyable - very robust flavour!

The Penang hokkien mee ($3) uses the same soup as their prawn noodles, so you’re not missing out on much! The prawns are unquestionably smaller but they were surprisingly sweet and firm.

Tried both the original Ipoh hor fun and the chicken chop hor fun ($3.50) - the noodles are silky and coated by a viscous savoury sauce. I much preferred the version with crispy fried chicken as it had more dimension in flavour and texture!

Their braised beef noodles ($6) are hands down my favourite version! The soup is clear and light. Kway teow pairs perfectly with the savoury soup with hints of sweetness and tang. The highlight of the meal, though, is the braised beef - perfectly tender with a nice rounded flavour!

My default order at the market! The queue can get quite long but it moves quickly. Love the flavours of their minced meat noodles ($3) - generous splash of vinegar and a chilli so spicy that it leaves your lips burning.

This food centre always leaves me frazzled with its persistent pushy crowds. There’s nothing particularly fantastic here, so I grabbed the easiest thing. The noodles ($3) are alkaline with bland chewy meat. The wanton was pretty tasty but it’s skin disintegrated in the soup!

Love the chewy hand pulled mee hoon kueh, but I think I’ll be sticking to the plain version next time! Found the dumplings ($4) a little carb heavy and lacking in flavour.

The only place I go to for tom yum ban mian ($4.50) :”-) love the large portion of chewy noodles and generous ingredients! Soup is bursting with flavour but not MSG-laden.

The Hokkien mee ($4) is popular but a tad lacking - the ingredients were so sparse! Also found the gravy rather starchy. It’s saving grace was the chilli, which packed formidable heat.

Best part of this mee hoon kueh ($4) was definitely its chewy, hand-pulled noodles!! Portion was really generous, with both lean & minced meat. The soup has a natural sweetness and none of the usual thirst-inducing msg!

Used to love these noodles but the standard seems to have dropped quite a bit :-( the white bee hoon ($9) tastes like regular bee hoon, without the rich brine of seafood and distinctly lacking any wok hei flavour. The belachan chilli continues to impress though!
