Kim Keat Hokkien Mee 金吉炒福建面

My long overdue "To Eat List" has been revived and YES I managed to visit this Claypot Hokkien Mee in Toa Payoh that went abit viral on the social media last year due to its inspiring stories behind.

After ordering your desired portion (you can order with or without claypot), you can have your buffet of lime and chilli at the table right in front of the stall. The chilli is not overly spicy but it goes well with the noodles.

Luckily, the wait was not that long and our pot of food came within 10 minutes of ordering. The hit of aroma and sizzling sound from the claypot draw our full attention as soon as it was on the table. That was the first time I ever had Hokkien Mee from an earthen claypot.



We had the $10 portion which I think was good for 2-3 pax. Besides being served in a claypot, they gave a different feel from the mainstream hokkien mee as you can see significance differences in the ingredients.

A good few pieces of tasty "Sio Bak" (Roasted Pork Belly) had been given and apparently, you get to see "La La" in it, which is not common other than the usual prawns, squid, pork belly, pork lards and eggs.

Ingredients Lay out for individual portion
Crispy dark brown pork belly was delicious! It might be a little salty but it taste good alone with its crackling skin.

Pork Belly
As a whole in terms of Hokkien Mee, it does have its consistency but still lacking of a good strong stock punch that will actually lift the dish up. Noodles was wet enough, wasn't the dry version that I have read. Personally, I was kind of disappointed about taste but still its a good to know about such dish with tasty pork belly exists.
