Thick yellow noodles combined with fragile bee hoon, mixed with belly-warming gravy, complemented with fresh, juicy prawns (at times squid as well) and sweet and spicy sambal drizzled with lime… mmm… it’s none other than the delicious hawker dish, hokkien mee!
Here’s a list of the five best hokkien mee stalls in Singapore, as voted by YOU!

Be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes for a $3 red-coloured plate of delicious hokkien mee, especially on the weekends. Aside from the long waiting time, Ah Hock’s Hokkien Mee is also well-known for its not-so-greasy texture and is a healthier choice in comparison to most other versions out there.
2. Tiong Bahru Yi Sheng Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee @ ABC Brickworks Food Centre
The winning ingredient of Yi Sheng’s creation is not the prawn, not entirely the texture of the noodles, but the savoury homemade chilli. It’s a little spicier than the norm, but you’ll find that it’s what ultimately makes the hokkien mee here so shiok
3. Nam Sing Fried Hokkien Mee @ Old Airport RoadPhoto courtesy of camemberu.com
Fresh prawns and squid make Nam Sing’s Hokkien Mee a real hit with fans. Food notes for you: no belachan is served at Nam Sing, only sliced red chilli (flavour is still as good as ever though) and if you love your hokkien mee with lots of gravy then give this stall a go!
4. Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee @ Golden Mile Food Centre
Another ‘dry’ version of hokkien mee can be found at Golden Mile Food Centre. It’s cooked in a Hainan style and packed with strong flavours absorbed by the strands of noodles. Some have said the portion’s a tad bit small though, so maybe you’d be better off ordering the larger portion instead.
5. Yung Sheng Fried Hokkien Mee @ Taman Jurong
Yung Sheng’s Hokkien Mee is as hearty a hawker meal as it gets. It’s been around for a long time now, and patrons still love the stall’s tasty, non-oily fried prawn noodles. An added bonus: the noodles don’t clump together like some others (annoyingly) do!
