My second time visiting, the first time i ordered for one person, which comes in normal plate but without the crispy fried pork meat. The claypot hokkien mee was meant for minimum 2pax, which cost $10, so $5 per pax, but i finish it alone (Haha i have huge appetite).However, is not just 2 person portion of hokkien mee in a hot claypot, there are additional of clams and crispy fried pork that makes it much valuable then ordering the normal one.For those that enjoy hot sizzling food will love it. The first few mouthful of noodle was to enjoy that hot sizzling shiokness of the noodle. Then i let it cool down awhile, and thats when the claypot heat help the noodle to absorbed the savoury broth.Conclusion: A place i will go if i crave for claypot noodle or crispy fried pork, and will only order the claypot version. continue reading

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/07/kim-keat-hokkien-mee.htmlMy long overdue "To Eat List" has been revived and YES I managed to visit this Claypot Hokkien Mee in Toa Payoh that went abit viral on the social media last year due to its inspiring stories behind.After ordering your desired portion (you can order with or without claypot), you can have your buffet of lime and chilli at the table right in front of the stall. The chilli is not overly spicy but it goes well with the noodles.Luckily, the wait was not that long and our pot of food came within 10 minutes of ordering. The hit of aroma and sizzling sound from the claypot draw our full attention as soon as it was on the table. That was the first time I ever had Hokkien Mee from an earthen claypot.We had the $10 portion which I think was good for 2-3 pax. Besides being served in a claypot, they gave a different feel from the mainstream hokkien mee as you can see significance differences in the ingredients.Claypot Hokkien Mee - $10A good few pieces of tasty "Sio Bak" (Roasted Pork Belly) had been given and apparently, you get to see "La La" in it, which is not common other than the usual prawns, squid, pork belly, pork lards and eggs.Crispy dark brown pork belly was delicious! It might be a little salty but it taste good alone with its crackling skin.As a whole in terms of Hokkien Mee, it does have its consistency but still lacking of a good strong stock punch that will actually lift the dish up. Noodles was wet enough, wasn't the dry version that I have read. Personally, I was kind of disappointed about taste but still its a good to know about such dish with tasty pork belly exists. continue reading

Full Review at http://lepakwithyaops.com/old-school-kim-keat-claypot-hokkien-noodles-toa-payoh/Follow Lepak With Yaops on Instagram and FacebookI've heard and tasted Claypot Rice, Chicken, Beancurd and Frog etc., but Hokkien Noodles...? Well that's a first for me. Whatever the case, when I first saw pictures of it, I immediately promised myself that I need to try it one day and I finally did!We ordered the Claypot version ($10 or $15) which took about 20 mins to arrive. Like eating claypot rice, I mixed the golden brown mouth-watering siobak (roasted pork) and pork lard together with the noodles, then allowed the gravy to set for a while to reach 'perfect' viscosity. The rest was history!Wok hei from the noodle, fragrance from the pork lard, crisp from the sio bak... all these as I slurp in mouth after mouth. Food-gasm my friend!Simply irresistible! continue reading

Was there before 6pm so no crowd at all.Saw a review that $10 can feed 3 person so was apprehensive if I should order more since we have 2 adults 2 kids.Chef advise ordered $20 and I was still worried its too much but when they served I was shocked! It's like a portion what a $10 might be suitable. End up my kids finished almost 70% with just 2 small servings and we just ate a bit.in the end we have to go another coffee shop to order Charsiew rice, 2 plates to fill up stomach.overall taste is so so although seafood is quite a bit, and watery, those order $5 version seems so dry.not worth all the way to try, I saw its #1 so brought whole family from Yishun to try!its too expensive consider the super small portion!the fried oyster egg was not available. continue reading

About 5 minutes walk from Braddell MRT is this infamous claypoy hokkien mee. The uncle recommends a $10 portion for two people, even though it has 2 Lalas and 3 prawns and a $15 portion for three people. However for $10 we managed to feed 3 people and also ordered a $4 Fried oyster omelette!1. Claypot Hokkien Mee $10I really enjoyed the fried 3-layered meat, it was crispy and salty. The claypot was served to us within 5 minutes of ordering and the gravy was bubbling!You can taste a biut of wok-hei in the noodles itself, there were tons of sotongs and 3-layered meat. The gravy itself was very flavourful and I didn't feel thirsty after eating it, so hopefully not that much MSG in there.The chilli was good too!2. Fried Oyster OmeletteThis is one of the best fried oyster omelette I have ever had. It was so crispy, like a toasted Gardenia bread! It wasn't dripping in oil like those I have tried at Newton Hawker Centre. There were quite alot of oyster and my friends said it tasted okay. I don't actually like oysters, but I thoroughly enjoyed the crispy exterior and fluffy interior of the omelette! continue reading
