Hock Hai (Hong Lim) Chicken Curry Noodle

I became a fan of curry noodle ever since I found Ah Heng Curry Chicken Noodles in Hong Lim Food Centre. Hence when I saw Hock Hai Chicken Curry Noodle in Maxwell Food Centre, I did not hesitate to give it a try. With fresh steamed chicken displayed in front of the stall and a huge pot of enticing curry gravy, I certainly had very high expectations of Hock Hai curry mee.

I ordered a $3 bowl of curry noodles which comes with several pieces of chicken, a piece of potato, a few slices of fish cake and some tau pok. Coating the noodles impressively, the delicious gravy is spicy and savory but somewhat deficient in the thickness of coconut milk. The steamed white chicken is fresh and tender but not as tasty as it appears on display.

For curry mee lovers who prefer curry gravy that is thick and rich in coconut flavour, Hock Hai curry mee may not appeal to you. But for those who prefer the gravy to be less concentrated and more healthy, do come down to Maxwell Food Centre and try Hock Hai Chicken Curry Noodle today.

Hi, this curry mee is nice but certainly not fantastic. Have u tried the famous fish soup with a long queue at Maxwell Hawker Centre?

have tried this once when i was half drunk. didn't think it was nice.

tried it again last weekend. it is confirmed not nice.

Lack of fragrance, aroma and was way too oily. Chicken was tasteless as well.
