Che Jian Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee

Just as Changi Village has 3 famous nasi lemak, Chomp Chomp has 3 fried hokkien mee, Ah Hock Che Jian and Kim's. Having tried Kim's a few months back, I was disappointed that the fried hokkien mee was nowhere as fantastic as that from its main restaurant at Joo Chiat. Today I decided to try Che Jian instead.

I ordered a plate of fried hokkien mee which costs $3. The first thing about Che Jian hokkien mee that catches my attention is the use of thin bee hoon which absorbs the savory gravy really well. Topped with crispy pork lard and spicy sambal belacan (instead of the usual sambal tumis), the delicious noodles are well-fried with a subtle charred aroma.

In the face of strong competition from the other stalls, Che Jian certainly commands a steady stream of customers with its impressive fried hokkien mee.
