The highlight of this ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ธ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ ($5) was a well-executed texture that was skewed towards the drier side, with a gentle puddle of gravy hiding beneath some mildly moist noodles which had locked in a good amount of stock.

Flavour-wise though, it wasn't the strongest; it was fragrant but slightly lacking the richness found in other renditions, whilst also being light on wok hei. Hypothetically, a good sambal may be able to provide a different dimension and give the milder flavours some punch, but nonetheless the sliced chili was a nice touch. It bestowed a straightforward heat without intruding on the seafood flavours, or adding a sliminess sambal sometimes introduces.

I personally thought it was a pretty decent plate, particularly due to the texture. And since good dry style Hokkien Mee is rarer, that alone gives it points. But if you're still looking for dry style Hokkien Mee, I'd strongly recommend the one at Golden Mile.

Pretty much an institution, โ€œNam Sing Hokkien Fried Meeโ€ has their own style of Fried Hokkien Mee that is only a little bit wet but packs on plenty of "wok hei". They also clip the strands of fine beehoon and yellow mee quite short. Iโ€™m making a wild guess that by doing so, it helps the noodles to โ€œflyโ€ higher when tossed around in the wok, thus becoming drier and lighter more swiftiy.
Interestingly, you will not find any sambal chilli served alongside their Fried Hokkien Mee. They only give sliced red chili in a light soya sauce and fresh lime as condiments. At first, I use to feel like something was missing but after a couple of visits, I grew to appreciate the purer flavours of the dish which came through cleaner minus the distraction of a sambal.

My favorite stall. But I know this isn't for everyone, especially those who like their hokkien mee to be wetter with all the seductive seafood stock. This is a dry version, where the beehoon is fried till fragrant. There's still plenty of seafood taste here, and at times more wok fragrance than others. But be prepared to wait (at your table) for usually about 45 mins during lunch hours when I visited.

There's also a theory, that hokkien mee tastes better when you dabao. Especially leaving it overnight in the fridge then heating it up again the next day. What do you think?

Quite a famous Hokkien mee in Singapore

Done very traditionally with cut chillis and soy sauce (not sambal). The stock used to make the prawn mee is very very good, very pleasant tasting, with right about of savoriness, umami and sweetness from the pork inside the broth. The squid and prawn was very fresh which was a pleasant surprise as most places cut cost by giving inferior quality seafood with their Hokkien mee

Maybe it's a style thing but this Hokkien mee does not have a lot of wok hei, and the yellow noodles were not dry fried for long so there is still an alkaline taste which isn't necessarily bad.

Overall a good plate of Hokkien mee. Not my favorite but I can see why it has its share of fans. The stock though, probably one of the best among the Hokkien mee stalls in sg

๐Ÿ”ฅPopular hokkien mee at Old Airport Road. Waited 30mins for this. Small plate cost S$5. Very yummy and worth the wait.

This is the wet type hokkien mee and they are using bee hoon mix with yellow noodles. Easy to eat as they have chopped the noodles.

PRICE: $5 for the small portion (used to be $4 in 2018)

WAIT TIME: 18 min during weekday lunchtime
(Had no idea it'd be that long a wait cos there wasn't a queue.)

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
