Not to be mistaken for the prawn noodle soup stall in Amoy Street Food Centre with the same name, The Old Stall in Tanjong Pagar Food Centre sells fried hokkien mee. Run by a couple who are in their 70s, this stall must have been around for a very long time, hence its name.
I ordered a plate of $3 fried hokkien mee which comes in a reasonably satisfactory portion, served with fresh prawns, sotong and fish cake. Coated with an irresistable layer of savory gravy, the delicious noodles are more wet in consistency than the usual hokkien mee but not overly soggy. The novel use of chye sim complements the flavorful taste of the noodles. The chilli paste is sweet and spicy, accentuating the delightful fragrance of the noodles.
This is definitely more of the more outstanding fried hokkien mee in the City. Try it for yourself if you go to Tanjong Pagar Food Centre for lunch.
