Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee


My colleagues were talking about the best Hokkien Mee in Singapore and few of them suggested Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee in Whampoa Hawker Centre. From what they said that really stirred the interest in me. Besides having known the place for their fish head steamboat, rojak and chicken rice, I never recalled trying Hokkien Mee in this vicinity, perhaps if I do its like couple of years back where the place was before their upgrading scheme.

Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee Stall Front
With so many Hokkien Mee stall in one place, don't get your attention drift to somewhere else. Business name is easily remember with "Singapore" as the keyword and queues at the stall was ongoing. What I find funny was that instead of serving plates of Hokkien Mee through their main stall entrance, there was this lady who stood at the metal ladder steps from the side of the stall and all orders are to be made and served there.

Mee (Noodles) were cooked in batches and fortunately even though the queue was long, my wait was less than 10 minutes.  At the first look of the plate, presentation looked standard with squid, lime, mixture of yellow and white bee hoon with a scoop of chilli filled with lots of seeds.

Fried Hokkien Mee - $4 (Small)
No doubt the wetness level maybe adequate with a gooey appearance, it lacked the oomph and did not really meet my expectation of this highly raved plate of Hokkien Mee. Seafood flavours were not distinctively enough and it did not really help even by relying on their Sambal Chilli to enhance the taste.

Close Up
Hopefully such thing was a once off thing, perhaps the time of visit was not too right but still we had all taken noted they were one of Singapore's favourite with such long queue.
