This possibly tops my list of favourite hokkien noodle in Singapore. Might not come with the most wok hei, but it ticks off al the features i'm looking for: umami stock, qq noodle and soupy base. Portion is pretty satisfying too! Some people will question why they never put sambal or lard in it, but I always prefer simpler ingredients done right.

$5 portion too little as a meal, u may add on ur meal with other food here. The hokkien mee got sotong, prawn, no waiting.

PRICE: $4

WAIT TIME: 5 min on weekday afternoon

WOK HEI: Not really

FRIED PORK LARD: NOPE :(

PRAWNS: 2 + lots of squid

TYPE OF NOODLES: Yellow mee and thin beehoon

TYPE OF CHILLI: Chilli in soy sauce. Not the belachan kind I like.

WILL WE RETURN? Unlikely

Famous Hokkien prawn mee that has an average wait of 30-45 mins at peak hours. My dad usually buys back for us & it always hit the spot. Had this last week at the food centre but it was the first time that I was so disappointed. It was just ok only. Also, I don’t get why they don’t serve it with sambal. I love sambal with my noodles, don’t you? .

We finally got to try it after a half-hour order.
Verdict was an overhyped rating. They used noodles with thin beehoon which we liked; but the stock was disappointingly watery and not flavourful as we anticipated. The way they fried the eggs didn’t taste coherent overall. Guessed the chopped chilli was something unique about them; but we prefer the good old familiar sambal chilli that would still be perfect for fried Hokkien mee.

Old Airport Road Food Centre (nearest MRT station: Dakota) is an undisputed haven for tasty hawker fare — when in doubt, just follow the queues! One of the Burpple community's favourite stalls here is Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee, which has been serving up a smoking good rendition of its namesake dish since 1963. Better known simply as Hokkien mee, this dish sees a mix of thin rice vermicelli and thicker yellow noodles, fried with prawns, squid and and eggs in a rich seafood stock base. As with many hawker dishes, this relies a lot on the heat of the wok to impart a smoky flavour that completely elevates the dish. Nam Sing's rendition of Hokkien Fried Mee ($5) is a little less saucy than most, but it is no less, possibly even more, flavourful. Getting your hands on a plate of this deliciousness takes a bit of luck — even though operating hours are stated as 10am to 5pm, the hours can change depending on the owner's mood. Our advice? Don't leave this till your last day, just in case!
