Mee Hoon Kueh

Mee Hoon Kueh

Well I once ate meehoonkueh 6 days in a row so it deserves a folder of its own :)

This was quite yummy! The liushabao is baked, so it has that sweet, slightly crisp crust (like the ones from timhowan & canton paradise). The liusha filling is molten and threatens to spill out with each bite, and the consistency & flavour was quite nice to me - it’s sweet and buttery and thick and slightly grainy (I am partial to both grainy / smooth liushas). It’s a bit big, and a tad sweet bc of the top sugar crust, but it’s good and I would order this again!

The mhk pieces were hand torn, quite qq and chewy, pretty yummy! They also give sliced mushrooms and for veg they use dabaicai, which is quite unusual. I’ve never seen it in other mhk stalls before - most use mani cai (to be authentic), spinach, or xiaobaicai. The soup was light but had a very nice natural sweetness that was probably bc of the dabaicai, and maybe corn in the stock? Wouldn’t mind coming back for this if I’m in the area, but I’m not an eastie and I don’t think I’ll travel for it, their outlets are in Bedok & Tampines. Would definitely frequent it if they ever opened an outlet in the west tho :)

The pieces are hand torn and while they were done al dente, it wasn’t as qq as ahyi/handmade mhk from marsiling mall/lane hawker respectively. Soup is tasty, floaty egg whites + a runny yolk is always welcome. Minced meat and xiao bao cai was okay. It’s an average mhk, not bad but there are a lot of better mhk stalls out there :x

The mhk pieces were thicc and chewy, it’s a different texture compared to my favourite qq mhk from ahyi at marsiling mall. It’s nice but not my fav. The soup was tasty, it’s not as robust as others’ but it’s okay for me as I am fine with lighter soup. The meatball was average, minced meat clumps could have done with better marination. The give spinach as veg! I usually prefer mhk in soup but for this place I enjoyed the dry one better! The extra $0.50 is for the egg which isn’t in the soup one I guess. The chili isn’t spicy, it adds a different flavour to the sauce. Thought their mhk pieces worked better in the sauce compared to the soup.

Another amazing bowl of mhk! The hand torn mhk pieces were chewy with varying thickness - some parts were stretched more thinly due to the pulling and tearing process. Very very good texture, comparable to ah yi’s mhk at marsiling mall. The soup was comforting and the egg whites floating around is a good touch. Minced meat was decent. They use mani cai!! There are peppery lean chicken strips in the soup which is strange, they’re fine but I’m okay without it.

Tried their banmian before as they were sold out of mhk in the evening and it was not bad too, but definitely get the mhk if you do visit! My favourite is still ah yi but this stall’s mhk pieces are a very close second.

Their mhk is thinner and slurpier, not the thicker kinds, but wasn’t soggy. Here they serve superrrr big pieces, kinda hard to eat actually because it can’t fit on the spoon 😂 This had mani cai + xiaobaicai, and 2 pieces of beancurd skin. Ikan bilis here is a touch more crisp and salty than most. Shallot was also more crisp, but this I liked. They give rousui, but I didn’t really like it. It also came with 2 meatballs, the kind u see in bcm/pho. A raw egg is cracked into soup, but the whites couldn't get cooked enough bc the bowl had a large surface area and the amoy fans cooled down the soup too quickly. Very generous portion, was super full! Soup is the less rich / more clear type, similar to grandma banmian at level 1. Overall, this was decent but there’s better mhk in amoy!

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!

Broth is rich (not the clear type), mhk is not hand torn but cut bc its even & uniform. Kinda like bossi ban mian at sgoon gardens. It’s slurpy and thin, q al dente and very smooth and slidey. They crack a raw egg into the bowl, so there’s a runny yolk! Veg here is spinach, but wasn’t a lot. The minced meat was alright but not particularly great. Ikan wasn't too salty. A good bowl of mhk, but those who prefer the chunkier kind would not prefer this!

There were some mhk pieces which were really nice, with a qq texture, but it wasn’t very consistent. Some pieces lacked that qq texture. They’re generous with the tender pork slices and tasty meatballs though, and the fried shallots brought fragrance to the bowl of mhk. I do prefer ah yi’s (the stall in the next row) mhk as it has better texture and consistency. Nonetheless, this is still a pretty good bowl of mhk!

The hand torn mee hoon kueh was alright (not doughy), though it lacked springiness as it was rather thin. Meatballs were well-seasoned, and I liked that there was mani cai in this (the hallmark of more authentic mhks). There were also mushrooms and ikan bilis, plus an onsen egg which is something different. A decent bowl, but not the best.

Wow! I was thoroughly impressed with this bowl of mee hoon kueh, it was so delicious! The mhk pieces were chewy and bouncy, and not doughy at all; the soup was flavourful but light; minced meat was well-seasoned; and the crisp ikan bilis + fried shallots provided a good crunch & fragrance. Will definitely return for this - I think it’s one of the best mhk I’ve had :)

This had a long queue, and is pretty affordable! However, wasn’t too impressed by the mhk. It was too thick for my liking. While it was chewy, it was quite doughy :( I did like the soup though!
