I first patronised this stall at Seah Im Food Centre when I was an undergraduate at NUS many years ago. Back then, at the end of a long day, I often had a strong craving for a plate of delicious Cheng Ji fried hokkien prawn mee with a glass of refreshing sugarcane juice for dinner. After I graduated and started working, I no longer patronised Seah Im Food Centre frequently. But having Cheng Ji fried hokkien mee occasionally still brings back plenty of sentimental memories from my university days.
I always ordered a plate of fried hokkien mee with an extra egg, costing $3 in total. Delightfully topped with generous servings of fresh prawns, sotong and fried egg, the mouthwatering noodles are exceptionally flavorful and impressively fried with a distinctive charred fragrance. The savory chilli paste is sweet and spicy and complements the tasty noodles very well.
Nostalgic feeling aside, Cheng Ji fried hokkien prawn mee is very sumptuous and value for money. My only dissatisfaction is that Cheng Ji charges 50 cents for extra chilli. Nevertheless it is still one of my favorite fried hokkien mee and I will certainly be coming back for more.
