Mention Mei Ling Food Centre and the one stall that comes to mind is the Hor Fun. You probably would not know the name of the Hor Fun stall as most people would simply refer to them as “Nor, that Hor Fun from Mei Ling St Food Centre lor!”
Liverpool has been telling me about this Hor Fun even before they underwent their renovation. However, somehow we just did not find the time to go and try it. Now that Mei Ling Food Centre has just reopened in their new premises, it seems to be an opportune time to get a taste of this Hor Fun at last.
I guess there are no surprises here. The Hor Fun was excellent and you can tell from the taste of the gravy that it is still made with much passion. I think the sauce is one of those which they never make a batch from scratch. I suspect that there will be some leftover everyday which they will add new ingredients to make the gravy for the next day. That means that theoretically they might have molecules of stuff in there since 1969!
The stall has been around for 40 years and the owners are proud of it. Unfortunately the mom suffered a stroke and is now unable to cook. However, she is still at the stall supporting her husband and daughter. The daughter has recently returned from Hong Kong to help take over the running of the stall! So that means we are at least going to enjoy their recipe for at least another generation!
If you are a fan of Hor Fun, this is one place that you must make a point to visit. I highly recommend the pork ribs, mushroom and chicken feet hor fun. 4.5/5
