Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee has Michelin-approved fried prawn noodles in Whampoa

When I crave hokkien mee, Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee comes straight to mind: the Whampoa Market stall has an indeterminate history, but is well-loved for its slightly wet, umami-laden take on the fried prawn mee dish. It’s hard to miss the stall because enter the market from the carpark and you’ll definitely spot the aunty on a stepladder by the side of the stall, taking and dispensing orders from her high-up perch.

What’s more, the stall is perfect for night owls who, like myself, get the munchies for fried hokkien mee come suppertime—they only open at 3:30pm on weekdays, and 2pm on weekends and public holidays, and close at 1:30am every day! The line at this stall is perennially long, though it moves pretty quickly. One can only imagine that with their recent entry to the Michelin Bib Gourmand 2023 list, the queue will get even longer.

Prices at Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee start from $5 for a plate, with incremental prices going up to $15 for the largest-listed portion. If you’re dabao-ing for a party, let them know how much you want, and they’ll pack it accordingly.

This plate of fried hokkien mee is for those of you who prefer a wetter, more gravy-laden version of the prawn noodles. That’s not to say it’s incredibly soupy; the stock is cooked into the mix of yellow egg noodles and thick bee hoon, and coats each strand for a slurp-worthy mouthful. You’ll also get chunks of egg that are evenly distributed throughout the dish, though the $5 portion only comes with two small prawns and a fair bit of squid, AKA sotong.

We loved the fried pork lard here for its crisp, savoury finish. This is only added on request, however, so be sure to ask the auntie for it!

singapore fried hokkien mee - sambal

Fried hokkien mee, of course, has to be enjoyed with sambal, and Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee makes their own. For that extra kick, you’ll get sliced green and red chillies on the plate too. We thought the noodles were tasty enough without the chilli, but enjoyed them with it too.
