Delivery but these were still good! Crunchy and they were quite generous with the prawns. The ngohhiang was pretty good too - generous with ingredients, meaty, with bits of chestnut giving it a good crunch! Having said that, any more than one roll was a bit jelak to me as I could pick out some pork fats within.

Caught wind of Sim’s Ngoh Hiang having moved to a shophouse unit of their own along Joo Chiat Road fairly recently — the establishment having grew from being an online business launched during the nation’s Circuit Breaker, to being a humble stall situated in one of the coffeeshops located in the Crawford Lane neighbourhood. It was also the Crawford Lane location that I had first tried their Ngoh Hiang — something which I found to be pretty stellar at the point of time.

Now occupying an entire shophouse unit at the ground floor, Sim’s Ngoh Hiang has also expanded its menu offerings beyond their Shrimp Fried Bee Hoon, Fried Chicken Wings and Ngoh Hiang offerings; that being said, coming to Sim’s Ngoh Hiang without ordering the Ngoh Hiang is kinda missing the point — or so, I would have thought. To be really honest here, it could have been by sheer luck that I have gotten my Ngoh Hiang come freshly-fried upon order during my first visit to their Crawford Lane location; the ones here felt less stellar considering it lacked the crunch and piping hot temperature that I had during the first impression, though it could have been partially due to the fact where I was also waiting for the Fish Ball with Noodles (Dry) to arrive before going for the first morsel. That being said, I still like how old-school the Ngoh Hiang here is — meaty, yet filled with loads of chestnuts for a crunch whilst being well-packed without the meats coming loose from within; all that while not being particularly greasy despite being a deep-fried item. The accompanying chili was also as stellar as before; zippy, tangy and carrying a good spicy kick with a hint of raw chili seeds, putting the “hiam” in “hiamjio” as they call chili in Hokkien.

Had came across Sim’s Ngoh Hiang on social media and thought it was pretty intriguing considering how they only have three items on the menu — Fried Bee Hoon, Ngoh Hiang and Fried Chicken Wings which all seem to have raving reviews from those who had tried them from delivery/takeaway orders; and that’s how I found myself heading down to their physical stall at Wiseng Food Place at Blk 462 Crawford Lane to give them a try.

Wasn’t expecting much from the Fried Bee Hoon but I was fairly surprised by how old-school the flavours were — it comes with the slight fragrance of the rice vermicelli rather than simply tasting like an onslaught of savoury sauces like some stalls tend to serve up for economy breakfast; pretty delicious even on its own or with the zippy chili on the side that is all fiery and tickles the taste buds, while coming with cabbage for a slight crunch. Their signature Ngoh Hiang was also very delicious — tightly wrapped whilst aptly-sized for a single bite. It comes with a good proportion of meat and chestnut for a bite and a crunch with a crisp exterior without being overly greasy, and was very easy-to-have — wiped off from the plate in no-time. The Fried Chicken Wing (an additional order btw) also bore its own little surprise — the wings were not only hot and crisp on the exterior being served freshly fried upon order just like the Ngoh Hiang, but seems to also have also been marinated with fermented bean curd for a slight savoury and umami note as one goes through the browned exterior and the juicy and succulent flesh.

Simple as it is, Sim’s Ngoh Hiang definitely seems to be one of those hawker stalls where a lot of effort seemed to have went into perfecting their craft — a showcase of their dedication and passion into whatever they are serving. A stall that is worth making the trip for especially if Ngoh Hiang is your thing.
