Aaron Wong, an alumnus of MasterChef Singapore, has launched Jiak Song Mee Hoon Kway, his very own mee hoon kueh stall. He joins the ranks of MasterChef Singapore contestants who have gone on to culinary greatness, most recent of which is runner-up Genevieve Lee, whose delectable sourdough bombolinis have taken social media by storm.

MasterChef may be a franchise best known for gourmet dishes, with great emphasis on their visual appeal. However, Aaron Wong has deviated from fine dining to serve up simple bowls of mee hoon kueh. In fact, he makes it clear that fancy cooking isn’t that much his style. These warm comforting noodles start at $3.50 for a regular bowl of Signature Mee Hoon Kway.

Expect handmade shrimp balls, meatballs, and fish slices in your bowl of hearty mee hoon kueh, served piping hot. I was also surprised to learn that Aaron rolls out freshly-made mee hoon kueh as orders come in, ensuring the noodles are made-to-order.

Jiak Song Mee Hoon Kway may seem like a regular hawker stall, but this is Aaron’s effort to encourage young hawkers to join the scene by altering their perception of the profession. He hopes to be an inspiration to the younger generation to explore venturing into the hawker trade, and is glad to mentor them on this path.

The Telok Blangah-based stall only opened last weekend, but it has already garnered long queues of customers, excited to give Aaron’s mee hoon kueh a taste. Do note that the stall tends to run out of mee hoon kueh rather early. So if you’re keen on trying these hearty noodles, do try to visit earlier.
