A good plate of Hokkien Mee is typically identified with a few things off your checklist.

A robust and flavourful stock, smoky Wok Hei, crunchy pork lard, brilliantly red sambal, before it’s finally topped off with a flourish of zesty lime. In Singapore, we’ve long developed our own unique version of Hokkien Mee, distinctly different from that of its Fujian and Malaysian (Penang/Kuala Lumpur) counterparts.

Therefore, it makes perfect sense that you’ll find Hokkien Mee sellers in Singapore available a dime a dozen. The real question is, how do you find a good plate of Hokkien Mee that distinguishes itself from the rest? Some popular places you’ve probably heard of to achieve this are probably in Geylang and Old Airport Road, but are there more gems to be uncovered?

Run by an inspiring young hawker and his father, YouFu Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle is a reminder of the rare few youngsters who challenge this unconventional trade in the gruelling F&B industry.

Whether it’s the chilli or lard, the owner puts his utmost effort into crafting a worthy dish. The broth it’s cooked in is stewed for a minimum of 8 hours with a load of prawn heads, pork bones, pig skin and other ingredients. Opt for the thick Beehoon if you want wetter Hokkien Mee or thin Beehoon if you want drier noodles!

Whichever version you choose, it’s going to be full of Wok Hei. The pork lard that accompanies it is also light and crispy with abundant crunch. Prices range from $4 to $8!

When it comes to Hokkien Mee, this one needs no introduction.

Its rich history dates back to 1963, and its chef continues frying for 12 hours a day, 6 days a week despite being at the grand old age of 75. While most other Hokkien Mee stalls use thick Beehoon and yellow noodles, Nam Sing Hokkien Mee makes theirs with thin Beehoon.

Choose from two sizes priced at $5 and $8. The taste of Wok Hei here is subtle, with the thin noodles soaking up the broth easily. It also serves freshly sliced chillies instead of the typical Belachan, a nod to the traditional noodles that were paired with these chillies.
