What distinguishes charcoal fried hokkien mee from normal fried hokkien mee is the irresistable smoky charcoal aroma. When I tried the famous Geylang Lor 29 charcoal fried hokkien mee at East Coast Road, I was not impressed at all. Although it was fragrant, the noodles were too oily and not flavorful. Today I went to try the Charcoal Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee in Kim San Leng coffee shop at Changi Road and it was indeed impressive.
Delightfully sprinkled with pieces of crispy pork lard which amplify the distinctive charcoal fragrance, the delicious noodles are exceptionally flavorful and not overly oily. Complemented with tasty prawns and sotong, every mouthful of the noodles is simply irresistable.
Calling all fried hokkien mee lovers out there, this charcoal fried hokkien mee at Changi Road is a must-try if you haven't.
