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!

Doesn’t look like it packs any spice at all, but the dry cintan noodles ($4) is one of my favourite dishes here precisely for its special chilli! Hand-made noodles are tossed in a mixture of dark sauce and belachan. It’s served with meat, mushroom, some vegetables and topped with shallots & ikan bilis. They’d pack their rich soup into a separate container for you!

They store owners had adjusted their opening hours, so catching them is always a treat! The wait can get quite long but surely that’s testament to their popularity. Ordered my favourite Penang char kway teow ($4) - the takeaway box retains heat surprisingly well, though the portion felt a tad smaller than usual.

My family patronises this store for its tze char! Waiting time may be a tad long given it’s popularity, but it’s worthwhile given its price and quality. We finally tried their pig trotter bee hoon ($15) - tossed in a dark sauce, the noodles are extremely flavourful with a hint of sweetness. It also comes with a variety of ingredients!

I’m not the biggest fan of char kway teow, but this plate ($3) was surprisingly delightful! The sauce was sweet but not too heavy, with a nice wok hei flavour. The stall is pretty generous with its portion and ingredients!

This store looks rather unassuming and is perhaps better known for its char kway teow, but I love the hokkien mee ($6) here! Their dry rendition lacks the gravy typically seen, but still packs a punch in terms of flavour. I particularly love the brine reminiscent of prawn noodles!

Of all their options available, I order the fish hor fun ($4.50) least - while it features the same starchy sauce with a prominent wok hei flavour, I prefer the variety in the mixed seafood version or the flavour in the beef version! Nonetheless, the fish slices are smooth and fresh.

Residents of Toa Payoh would be familiar with this exceedingly popular tze char store! They are also famous for their white bee hoon ($12) - it lacks the usual gravy, but more than makes up for it in flavour. Rich with hints of wok hei, it also comes with lots of ingredients!
