Huat Heng Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee

There’s this little hawker centre in Toa Payoh Lorong 5 that comes alive in the evening. Yup, they do mostly dinner and supper business. A few stalls are familiar haunts of the residents in the area, like this fried Hokkien prawn noodle stall.

What’s good about it is that the noodles are stewed in sufficiently tasty stock, so you can taste the natural umami-ness in each mouthful. The noodles has absorbed all the flavours of the stock, so the noodles are quite soft without being limp and soggy. It’s not too dry or too wet. The prawns are sweet and crunchy, and the sambal is decent.

All that’s missing from this nearly perfect plate of fried Hokkien prawn noodles is some wok hei!

If you’re here, other stalls worth checking out are: Chinese satay, wanton noodles, and fish ball noodles (look out for the long queue).

    The nearest to Hokkien Prawn Mee in San Francisco is stir fried seafood noodle in E Mein. Maybe it is really the same when I see your photo of it. They do not have any dishes that say Hokkien style but Cantonese style is pretty much all most the same. Chui Chow restaurants there so far two in the city.

    Living in the states made me enjoy very much reading your blog of all the wonderful food of Singapore. I live in California and yes there are lot Chinese restaurants but none that Hokkienese or maybe the dishes could be not mention as Hokkienese. I did try to make Hainanese Chicken with recipe and many other too.

    This dish look like stir fried noodle with seafood served in Cantonese restaurant differents is seasoning. Will look for recipe to make it.
