Pricing: The Hokkien Mee is offered in 4-dollar, 5-dollar, and 8-dollar portions.
Customer Review: “The main characteristic of this Hokkien Mee is its gooeyness which intensifies the crustacean taste of the the stock. The noodles were well fried and the chef is no friend of pigs, so you get your lard and belly pork strips here. The fresh prawns and sotong are tiny and only serve as a garnishing. What you are going for is just a satisfying, full flavoured, fried noodle dish. “4.5/5

The most glaring difference between this hokkien mee and its counterparts is the absence of belacan. This method, which sees the noodles served with sliced red chilli, is supposed to be the most traditional way of eating fried hokkien prawn mee. It’s said to allow you to fully enjoy the noodles without the overpowering taste of the fermented shrimp paste chilli.
