Geylang Lor 29 Hokkien Mee and Hill Street Char Kway Teow at the Ultimate Hawker Fest!
As you all know, Bedok Blk 16 market has been closed for close to a year and so that means that Hillstreet Char Kway Teow has been closed as well. So this year I called Mr Ng and asked if he had moved to a temporary stall somewhere. He told me that he decided to […]
All good things must come to an end. So it is with a matter of urgency that I got an email about this 30 year old stall in Pasir Panjang whose owners are now planning to hang up the wok and spend the rest of their days shaking their tired legs and enjoying a bit […]
Original Serangoon Hokkien Mee: The Cripple Hokkien Mee Man’s legacy
How does a Hawker achieve legendary status? Well, firstly your food must be good and secondly it helps when you have a distinguishing feature.

Unfortunately they have stopped after 48 years! Handful of good sized Prawns for frying Hokkien Mee I love talking to Heritage Hawkers like Uncle Loh and his wife who runs a little stall selling Hokkien Mee in East Coast Lagoon Food Centre.

Hokkien Mee $3 Everyone loves an underdog right? One of our kakis, Champagne recently shared this video with me which was a real inspiration. In case you still have not heard about Susan Boyle, she is this 47 year old lady who managed to put a big smile on Simon Cowell’s face. When she rocked […]
Simon Road Hokkien Mee: Wet or Dry or Wet and Dry?
Wet version I have grown to appreciate Hokkien Mee which is fried with the thin Bee Hoon. I used to like the other version which has the thick bee hoon and lots of gravy, but after blogging close to 30 of the most popular Hokkien Mee stalls in Singapore, I have developed a taste for […]
Tian Tian Lai Hokkien Mee: I would if you were opened daily!
Our recent polls showed that the Hokkiens have the least proportion of foodies as compared with the other dialects groups.
