When i was queuing for the Lai Heng Pork Ribs Prawn Mee, i noticed that there was a queue for this stall, which is just directly opposite. Other than the catchy yellow signboard which has their stall name on it, there is an older one stating Farrer Park Fried Hokkien Mee, likely to be where they used to be. The prices start at $3 then $4 and $5 and i went with the $4 portion.
The waiting time was shorter than expected. It was the wet version that consists of a good portion of a mixture of bee hoon and yellow noodles serving with ingredients such as sotong, prawns, slices of fishcake and egg, together with sambal chilli and a lime by the side. I started by squeezing the lime then mixing the sambal chilli into the noodles. The first impression after i had my first mouthful was that distinct eggy taste but the noodles were not well braised. It might be due to cooking it too quickly in order to serve it fast to clear the queue thus did not give it enough time for the noodles to soak it well.
Though this stall has its supporters but the overall taste was quite average and it would not be in my top list for good Hokkien Mee. I do not think they have added in fried pork lards as i did not see and could not taste any in it.
