Ever since I had my first Ipoh Hor Fun (the dry version) during my army days in the canteen in my camp (which is as good as the one from Changi Village IMO), I had been intrigued by this dish and quite excited to find this spot nearer to home. Tried out their Fried Chicken Hor Fun and it was quite average at best; despite the sauce being mixed into the Hor Fun, this version was somehow lighter in flavour though the Hor Fun is still slurpy. Perhaps i still prefer my Ipoh Hor Fun to be served in a puddle of gravy where I get to mix it up myself. That being said, the fried chicken pieces were delightful given its crispness, and seemed to be marinated with a light amount of prawn paste where it adds just enough savoury flavour without going too heavy afterwards. PS: This is from their Bukit Panjang Plaza outlet, not the one listed in the geotag.

Pretty much an institution and having their own style of frying, the Fried Hokkien Noodles here is quite dry but that's cool because all the "wok hei" flavour has been fried into the strands of "beehoon" and "mee". Another unique point is that their noodles are kept short and "al dente". Don't expect any "sambal chilli" either because all you get are slices of red chili in a light soya sauce to go with the fresh lime. Personally, I find it gives the dish a distinct purer taste. I guess when you've been doing this since 1963, there is no need to fix it if it ain't broke :)
