Four Seas Fried Mee & Rice•Fried Hor Fun is located in Albert Centre Market & Food Centre, near Bugis Junction. The stall specialises in dishing out Hor Fun, Fried Mee, Fish Head Soup, Slice Fish Soup and Seafood Soup. It had been almost 6 months since I patronised Four Seas Fried Mee & Rice•Fried Hor Fun. The main reason why it took me so long to visit this stall is not because of the food. Instead it was because I did not have the patience to wait. I still remember that the Hor Fun served here
The soup was 'souperlicious'. Robust and packed with flavours! It was slightly salty (mainly due to the preserved vegetables) with a faint hint of sweetness. The fish head was fresh. More importantly, it was not fried. You may have noticed how many fish soup stalls fried their fish head to help mask the fishy taste which at times means that the fish is not fresh. Despite the slight saltiness of the soup (I am very particular when it comes to saltiness, what I feel is salty may not be so to you), I finished the whole bowl of soup. The salted bean sauce mixed with chilli padi is a must for fish soup lovers. I cant' help but say how I wish that all fish soup stalls provide this instead of chilli padi with light soy sauce. The taste is totally different and does not complement as well as the ones with salted bean sauce!
Four Seas Fried Mee & Rice•Fried Hor Fun did not disappoint. It was a fulfilling meal. The only negative aspect was the long waiting time. I will be keen to try their bitter gourd slice fish soup when I have an opportunity and of course patience. It was so value for money considering the quantity and quality of fish given.
ps: Even if the queue at this stall is short, you are likely to wait for a long time. This is because the regulars normally normally do not queue, they order directly with the lady, find a seat nearby and are served. Hence, the queue at the stall (visible to you) may not be the actual queue. I have also noticed that for some regulars they do not need to make payment when they receive the food. Instead they make payment after they have eaten. Integrity!
