Satay Bee Hoon $4
Food at Chompchomp has always been very well-known due to most stalls at the place serving very delightful bites.
However, the satay bee hoon that i tried the other day was sub-par, compared to other satay bee hoon.
Contrary to the review before me, i felt that the satay bee hoon was atrocious. I'm not sure if it's been 1 year since the last review or that the chef has changed or because i went down to early for fear of needing to wait for the tables, but the food was really tasteless.
I went around 5.30pm when most stalls were just setting up to open and the satay bee hoon seem to be one of the few that was already open long ago.
Bee Hoon was normal, eatable. The peanut sauce was really questionable, it was watery and not even aromatic at all. It also felt very tasteless, like i was eating peanuts by itself. The sauce was also not absorb by the bee hoon at all. Really weird. Prawn was not very fresh and difficult to peel as the meat stuck to the shell. Cuttlefish had a funny taste, might have been left overnight ): the kangkong was okay.
The service was good, i think it was suppose to be self-service? But might be because i was early, the guy served the food to our table. He was very friendly too.
As it was early, the smokey stench of the place did not really hit us. Plus, it was quite windy that day.
Tip: Choose the seats outside instead of in the hawker centre as the ventilation is much better.
Overall, this was the worst dish that i've tried that day. I would recommend other satay bee hoon (e.g. the one at bukit timah hawker centre) than this one.
