Fried Hokkien Mee @ Food Republic, VivoCity
On my recent visit with relatives, I thought I should give it another shot as there was hardly anyone in the queue (we were pretty early). I ordered a plate to share.
Anyway, with a shorter queue, the hawker was able to fry the noodles with more care. The thick egg noodles (aka Sek Mee in Singaporean lingo) and thick rice noodles (aka Chor Bee Hoon in Singaporean lingo) had absorbed the rich flavours of the prawn stock. I didn't eat the prawns as I already had quite a few in my Laksa dish but the squid was fresh and sweet. Though the chili sauce was rather tasty, it was a little too sweet for my taste. Besides, the noodles tasted pretty good on their own so I skipped the oily chili sauce and had the noodles.
This is a Must-Try only if there isn't a long queue (ie. go at off-peak times).
