In every hawker centre in Singapore, you’re bound to find at least one stall selling Hokkien Mee, a dish originating from Fujian province in southern China. The variations are aplenty – yellow noodles with thick or thin bee hoon, prepared ‘wet’ or ‘dry’, topped with prawns, squid and a fiery-red dollop of sambal chilli on the side. Here are 10 Best Hokkien Mee stalls in Singapore that you should definitely go out of your way for.

1. Kim Keat Hokkien Mee

Tucked away in Toa Payoh, Kim Keat Hokkien Mee serves its noodles unconventionally – in a clay pot ($10, serves two). The sambal belacan here is also unlike others, with it being dry due to the dried shrimps used. And besides a generous amount of squids, prawns and clams, the noodles come accompanied with roasted pork, which you would least expect on a plate, or rather, pot of hokkien mee.

Currently helmed by 4th generation of the Tan family (Mr. Tan Yew Lee), Simon Road Hokkien Mee has relocated to a coffee shop in Hougang. The noodles ($4) lean towards the gooey side, so the longer you wait before digging in, the more the noodles would have fully absorbed the stock.

8. Swee Guan Hokkien Mee

Unlike most Hokkien Mee stalls, Swee Guan Hokkien Mee sticks with tradition and uses charcoal fire to fry its noodles. This explains the slightly charred flavour in its noodles ($5). Also, the prawns are significantly bigger than most stalls. Drop by when you are waiting for your pork satay!
