Charcoal Fried Hokkien Mee: Just as the signboard says!
Does a charcoal fire really make a difference to the taste of the food? I know that a charcoal grill definitely imparts a smoky flavour to satay and other BBQed meats, but how does a charcoal fire actually impart taste through a wok to Hokkien Mee? Some would argue that it is the intensity and […]
Updated: Nam Sing Legendary Hokkien Mee: Old Airport Road Food Centre Part 1 of 9
Updated pics at the new Old Airport Road Food Centre I think it is appropriate to start this nine part series on the Old Airport Road Food Centre with the very famous Nam Sing Hokkien Mee which is regarded as the best Hokkien Mee in many a makankakis’ books. Old Airport Road Food Centre is […]
Ah Liang Fried Hokkien Mee: Does Tar Pauing make the HKM tastier?
This stall is closed Do you think that wrapping the HKM in Opeh leaf improves the taste of the HKM? Or does the image of the Opeh leaf somehow invoke some nostalgia and affect the taste? Some vendors tell me that they feel the Opeh leaf does nothing to the taste of the noodles whiles […]
Qiu Ji Hokkien Mee: Rustic Red Light District Hokkien Mee
With iwatch_ueat and carnineviand Yet another Hokkien Mee to add to the list! I have been eating here for many years but this is the first time after their renovation. I was surprised to find that the stall has started offering other stuff like fried oyster omelette as well. The Hokkien Mee here is the […]
With PK, Cold Storage, iwatch_ueat and smart This is another famous stall here at Pek Kio. The reason I call it a Baby Boomer HKM is that my three Baby Boomer Makankakis all seem to like it whiles I found it pretty ok only. So maybe it has a vintage taste I did not pick […]
Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee: Fantastic Chilli and Lard!
Did you know that you can’t actually register a company name with the word Singapore anymore? I guess it makes sense since everything is already Singapore this and Singapore that. I reckon they should do the same with “Raffles”. (or have they?) Anyway I think the name Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee is very apt since […]
With Holydrummer and iwatch_ueat Another day another Hokkien Mee. It seems that there are so many HKMs around which are pretty good nowadays. Certainly much more good HKMs than Wanton Mees where so few really come to mind. This blog alone already has 8 other worthy mentionable HKMs and most of them found in the […]
One Li Xiang: La La Hokkien Mee: Geylang East Central 4 of 6
This stall is no longer in operation With iwatch_ueat, tamago, smart and liverpool Now this is an interesting twist to the good old Hokkien Mee! What do you think Hokkien Mee would taste like if you add some La La (Clams) to it? I remembered having the KL style Hokkien Mee with La La at […]
Found another yummy Hokkien Mee in the East! I find that it’s getting harder to pick a real “King” of Hokkien Mee because they all have slightly different characteristics and each has its own merits. For instance, I enjoy the thin beehoon type because it gives more bite to the hokkien mee and is usually […]
Guang Fa Hokkien Prawn Mee: Healthier Hokkien Mee that still hits the spot: North Bridge Road Food Centre Part 2 of 2
This stall is closed Health conscious foodies can rejoice with this Healthier Choice Hokkien Mee that still tastes good enough to satisfy that Hokkien Mee Crave. Guang Fa is a spinoff from Newton Hokkien Mee, and is run by the son-in-law. The stallowners tell me that since they are serving the aging population in the […]

You know the adage “The brain is the biggest sex organ?” Well it turns out the brain is also the biggest taste organ as well. Somehow, when […]
