Fei Fei Roasted Noodle Review: Michelin-Approved Charcoal-Roasted Char Siew Noodles In Jurong East

25th February 2022

Fei Fei Roasted Noodle in Jurong East

Yuhua Village Market and Food Centre made the news last year, when not one, but three stalls here received Michelin Bib Gourmand recognition for their value-for-money, high-quality fare. One of these stalls was Fei Fei Roasted Noodle, a roast meats specialist that only operates for three and a half hours each day, though they usually sell out much earlier than that.

The family-run business has been in operation for more than 40 years since their early days in Redhill and Ghim Moh, and still roasts their meats over a charcoal fire in-stall every day.

We were disappointed to find out that not all the roast meats were available—we found out that they’ve been operating with a reduced menu since the pandemic struck. Nonetheless, there were char siew and roast duck aplenty.

To begin, we had a plate of Char Siew Noodles ($3.50), tossed in a mix of lard oil and a light soya sauce-based gravy that they make themselves. Hae bi chilli, also house-made, and pickled green chillis are added on the side, so you can mix them in as you wish. I was pleasantly taken aback by the heap of char siew here, considering the price. For the same price, you can also get Char Siew Rice instead.

Contrary to the reviews I’d seen online, I personally didn’t find the noodles too salty. There was a touch of sweetness in the sauce, while the house-made hae bi chilli brought spice and umami to the dish. Then, there’s the pickled chilli for an acidity that cut through the flavours.

Give it a good mix to ensure the generous portion of noodles is coated in the sauce. I really enjoyed the QQ springiness of the egg noodles, which I found to be thinner and bouncier than your usual mee kia.

The highlight, of course, was the glistening pieces of char siew. I’d not put in a request for fattier or leaner char siew, yet the meat on my plate was tender and evenly run through with melt-in-your-mouth fat. I liked that it wasn’t too sweet or tinted an artificial red, and sported just the right amount of char.

The Wonton Noodles ($3.50) was pretty much the same, except that some char siew was swapped out for two well-sized wonton, which came in a bowl of light, clear broth. Though reduced, the serving of char siew here was still more than decent.

I actually enjoy wonton skins in soup for their silky, delicate finish, and the ones used here didn’t disappoint. They also came packed with a mix of pork and whole shrimp, accented with the distinctive taste of ti po, AKA dried sole fish.

You could order Duck Rice ($4), or treat yourself and get Duck Leg Rice ($6.50), but I skipped the rice and went for the Roast Duck Leg ($6), served with a bunch of greens so you feel you’re kind of having a balanced meal.

The skin on this was lightly crisp, while the smooth dark meat dripped with juices. I’d ask for them to not chop it up if I were to have this again, so I can get more of that tastiness in each bite. I personally found it very enjoyably flavourful, but I can see how this could be too salty for some.

Ambience at Fei Fei Roasted Noodle

Yuhua Village Market and Food Centre is located 18 minutes away from Jurong East MRT Station by bus, or a 24-minute walk. It’s a huge food centre with many famous stalls, and is generously appointed with seats.

I visited Fei Fei Roasted Noodle on two separate occasions, arriving once at 9am sharp, and 15 minutes before on the following visit. My first trip incurred a 45-minute wait, with more than 10 other customers ahead of me, while it took me 25 minutes to get my food on the second try.  Both times there was a queue behind me, so I’d definitely suggest coming early.

The verdict

It’s a pity that we didn’t get to try the other roast meats that Fei Fei is known for, but I quite enjoyed the char siew and roast duck that we had. With the tasty, huge portions and very wallet-friendly prices, it’s no wonder that people are so willing to wait in line for this.

If Jurong East is too far for you, consider Fu Shi Traditional Roasted in Marsiling for KL-style roast meats. For somewhere more central, there’s Char Seal Bar, a home-based business-turned-cafe that serves Duroc pork char siew with Indomie!
