You can get each bowl as a $4, $5, or $6 portion. Each serving includes your choice of noodles, beansprouts, minced pork, fishballs, fish dumplings, fish cake, and prawns. You also get a good dose of pork lard bits for added flavour.

According to online reviews, the stall is now run by the third and fourth generations. The dish is said to boast a nostalgic flavour—it’s made with a recipe that’s been largely the same since the 1970s. The soup is brimming with flavour thanks to the use of prawn shells, though fans also comment they like that it’s not too salty.

If you order the dry version, the noodles are tossed in a mixture of black vinegar and sambal. A mix of kway teow and yellow mee seems to be the most popular noodle option here, though mee kia and mee pok seem to be available too.

A queue starts to form as soon as the stall opens at 5:30am, so make sure you head down earlier to get your noodle fix, as they close by 10:30am!
