Yong Heng Fried Hokkien Mee

It took me 3 tries before I decided to recommend Yong Heng Fried Hokkien Mee. More often than not, I dismissed it as not good enough eg broth too sweet, noodles too wet, chilli too ordinary etc. But when I tried the branch in Changi Village Food Centre, I was finally impressed to blog about it.

I ordered a $4 plate of fried hokkien mee which comes in a very satisfactory portion. Well-fried with a remarkable wok hei flavor and a slightly wet consistency, the delicious noodles are thoroughly coated with thick savory gravy concentrated with seafood essence. Although the noodles are so tasty that you can eat it with just the sweet chilli paste, they are served with fresh prawns, sotong, meat and egg.

What makes Yong Heng fried hokkien mee more outstanding than most others is the superior broth that it uses. It also has other branches in Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Vivocity etc. Do give it a try if you haven't.

Heng Huat Fried Kway Teow

Although the words "fried kway teow" and "healthy" may sound contradictory when used together, Heng Huat Fried Kway Teow in Pasir Panjang Food Centre serves one topped with generous servings of green vegetables and fried with no lard.

I ordered a $3 plate of fried kway teow and was impressed by the crunchy pieces of fresh chye sim that cleverly add a healthy component to the otherwise unhealthy dish. Well-fried with a remarkable wok hei flavour, the noodles come with the usual egg and juicy cockles but lacking in fish cake, Chinese sausage and lard.

If you are a health-conscious foodie who craves for fried kway teow, this one from Heng Huat will make you feel less guilty after eating. However I personally prefer my fried kway teow to come with plenty of lard and sweet sauce instead.
