What’s different with this plate of fried Hokkien mee over others is that it does not have pork belly slices, no fried pork lard and sambal chilli. Instead, the other ingredients besides the yellow noodle and bee hoon are prawns and sotong, all cooked and simmered in a rich umami broth. On the side, they will give a calamansi and cut red chillies in soya sauce. Don’t waste your calories in their other outlets, as the original stall at Old Airport Road still fries the best version.

🍴 Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee
📍 51 Old Airport Road, Old Airport Road Food Centre, Unit 01-32, Singapore 390051

It's immediately punchy, one of the strongest broths I've had. The seafood were cooked perfectly too

I mush prefer a sambal w this tho, which they don't serve unfortunately

The texture is really unique, it's as dry as it gets and sticky as well, but not for bad execution. The dry sticky texture is more a mouthful, because I didn't actually need water at all to finish the plate. Unique but not for everyone, I'm indifferent about this.

Also the wok hei isn't as strong as I had hoped, for a dry version

Team dry will love this. Yellow noodle mixed with big portion bee hoon cooked in umami quality stock. Decor with squid and prawn. As bee hoon is used, you can expect the high absorption rate which in turns produce flavourful noodles. It's good but doesn't stands out much to me.

I have a love and hate relationship with @namsinghokkienfried because of their consistency --- they are consistently good, there is consistently an hour long queue and they are consistently closed whenever I am there.

I typical like my hokkien mee wet but I will make an exception for their hokkien mee which is fragrant and full of wokhei. The prawns and squid remain tender and you can still taste the prawn and meat stock the noodles were stir-fried.

I must say that portions are on the smaller side so don't feel bad about ordering a large plate and finishing it all on your own!

We decided to try this Hokkien Mee over our usual Yi Ji Hokkien Mee today, as we heard quite a lot of good things about Nan Sing. As we wanted to share the dish between both of us, we thought to get the large Hokkien Mee, which costs $8 for the plate. However, we were really surprised to see that the L plate wasn't that large after all.

Nam Sing also serves the dry variety of Hokkien Mee, so fans of the wet version may not want to order from this stall. Nonetheless, despite the serving size, the noodles were really fragrant and you can taste the prawn broth that the noodles were cooked in. In addition, the stall peels all the prawns beforehand to make dining a more pleasant experience for those of us who hate to peel prawns (and we think you are paying a premium for this). It would be even more awesome if the stall could serve sambal belachan chilli like Yi Ji Hokkien Mee but that might be asking for too much.

Lastly, do not be deceived if you don't see anyone queuing in front of Nam Sing. The stall uses a buzzer system so it is very likely there is a long queue of customers in front of you, so do be prepared to wait.

I had read mixed reviews about this famous Hokkien Mee and honestly, I don’t really like it.

Lacking in wok Hei, each plate is served without the usual sambal chili. Instead, they provide chili padi with soya sauce.

Quite disappointing considered the long wait of 2 hours on a Saturday morning. I’m not kidding.

I guess to each it’s own.
