Its rather uncommon when you see the word “Singapore” in the name of a company, not least in the name of a food store. How many company actually has the word “Singapore”, not many, think Singapore Airlines, Singapore Telecommunications, Singapore Post, and almost all of them are actually Government-related entity.
Opposition party please don’t get it wrong, Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee is definitely not related to the Government, how it got its name remains a mystery, but thats not really the focus here. Leaving the name-issue aside, their Hokkien Mee is really good! Ever since finding out about them a couple of years back, one of the few stalls that comes into my mind when i think of Whampoa Market will be the Hoover Rojak, and this, Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee!
Hokkien Mee ($3)
While some places do their Hokkien mee either too dry or too wet, Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee is done exactly the way i like my Hokkien Mee, the perfect balance of the wetness of the noodles.
The sambal chili is also there to “die” for, literally. For someone like me who can’t really “hold” their chili well, i can’t help myself getting more of the chili. Mixed together with the Hokkien Mee, and with a few drops of the lime, awesome!
