|Hokkien Mee with Fried Egg|
Our first encounter of Hokkien Man Hokkien Mee (“HKHM”) was about a year ago. LD got a craving and decided to give this place a try. We reach there around 2 PM, however, they are sold out and almost finish cleaning and washing for the day. At the end, we ate the wanton mee from the stall beside it.
Fast forward this year, we went down to Toa Payoh for an unplanned visit around 11.30am. We decided to give them a call, the lady boss took our order 2 medium Hokkien Mee ($6; $5 for S & $7 for L) and told us it will be ready in 35 minutes.
LD order my HKM with extra fried egg ($0.50). The HKM come loaded with ingredients and extra gravy on the plate. Some might call it “wet version”. I give the gravy a sip and I like the sweet, robust and umami flavour. I also feel certain that there is no MSG in it.
The noodle is al-dente, while the white noodle is crunchy, it absorbs the stock nicely. The prawns, sotong and sliced pork belly are evenly spread, making in an enjoyable meal. Two things that we notice missing are the strong “Wok Hei” flavour and the crispy pork lard bits.
For the chilli, LD feels it lacks the Power (Spiciness), that she give up eating the chilli. Meanwhile, the crispy fried egg is a must order here. Not only it gives a different texture to the plate, I find it very comforting and yummy on its own. I will probably order 2 fried egg next time to top up my Hokkien Mee. LD told me they also have abalone topping for an additional of $5 for 3-4 mini abalones.
