Chye Lye Ah Ma Mee Sua : a hearty choice

The stall is started by Mr Ong Chye Lye and he has another noodle stall at Bukit Panjang Hawker Centre serving Lor Mee and Prawn Mee since 2016. This stall is likely to have the longest queue in this food centre. There was a queue as early as 11 am and I joined it. I waited for about 10 minutes before ordering. I ordered the mee sua ($4) added $1 for extra ingredients. The auntie that took my order asked, "Do you also want to add mee sua for $0.50?" I did not want it. There are also Ma Ma Sheng Mian ($4.50) and Mee Tai Mu Soup ($2.80) on the menu. Each bowl is cooked upon order.

It was a bowl of hearty mee sua served with ingredients like meatballs, sliced pork, thick slices of liver, stewed mushrooms, prawns and a poached egg. It was topped with finely sliced then fried ginger, spring onion and coriander with a dash of Chinese wine to enhance its flavor and fragrance. Those large meatballs were quite tasty but the liver was a little powdery. The texture of mee sua was just right and it did not turn soggy even after soaked in the soup for a while. It actually tasted like a confinement dish and I did not taste any MSG in it.

I have tried the Kidney Mee Sua at Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup which was also as good though are quite different in taste. 

This is a homely dish that every Ah Ma (grandma) would be likely to cook at home, it is simple and satisfying as well as a healthier alternative for lunch and dinner.

  1. 10/10 if they use hard boiled egg. It's like celebrating your own birthday kind of feeling.
