Hup Kee (Orchard) Fried Hokkien Mee

As featured on Makansutra, Hup Kee (Orchard) Fried Hokkien Mee first originated at Gluttons Square in Orchard Road back in the 1960s. The fried hokkien mee was well-known for its distinct quality because of the seafood soup base and superb wok-frying technique. Today Hup Kee's franchises are scattered all over Singapore eg Gluttons Bay at the Esplanade to Ang Mo Kio, Commonwealth, Hougang etc.

I recently tried Hup Kee (Orchard) fried hokkien prawn mee at Hougang Mall's Mei Shi Mei Ke Food Court and it was indeed impressive.

A $4 plate of fried hokkien mee comes with 3 medium sized prawns and a few slices of sotong. Expertly fried in thick savory gravy that is rich in seafood fragrance, the delicious noodles are irresistably flavorful.

Don't be fooled by the number of franchises. Overall Hup Kee (Orchard) is still one of the best fried hokkien mee that you can find in a food court.
