So how do you improve on already yummy Hokkien Mee? Well, add Sio Bak and simmer in a claypot that’s how!
Yummmmmileciously sinful. Simmering the Sio Bak infuses the noodles with extra flavour and the sio bak also absorbs some of the prawn stock from the Hokkien Mee!! It works!
The noodles as usual were very good. Firm and infused with flavor and not mushy. Kim’s uses the thick bee hoon which I prefer and the noodles always tastes fresh and not too Jia Lard.
Before you rush to Kim’s at Joo Chiat, there is 1 thing you should know. The Sio Bak was purchased elsewhere and Kim’s simply added it into their claypot HKM. So this is not a standard order. But it was nice of the lady to accomodate!
Kim’s is at Joo Chiat Place and opens till late.
Sio Bak $5 from Mei Yuen along East Coast Road
Claypot Hokkien Mee $10
Enough for 3 people or 2 big eaters.
4.5/5 If you never tried Sio Bak with HKM, you don’t know what you are missing!
BYO Sio Bak – no extra charge for adding to HKM
