Of all the Hokkien Mee in Singapore, Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee probably has one of the most mixed reviews.

The stall first started in the 40s as a street side stall at Eu Tong Seng Street.

It was then relocated to Simon Road Wet Market during the 60s, then settled at Old Airport Road Food Centre in the 90s.

Other than the original stall at Old Airport Road Food Centre, you can find its Hokkien Mee at Hawkers’ Street ION Orchard (in collaboration with Select Group) and Bukit Batok West Avenue 8 (Get Together coffeeshop).

Reviews are not that fantastic for the Bukit Batok outlet unfortunately.

Some of the famous Hokkien Mee around include Swee Guan Hokkien Mee (Geylang), Ah Hock Fried Hokkien Mee (Serangoon Garden), Come Daily Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee (Toa Payoh), Hainan Hokkien Mee (Golden Mile Food Centre), Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle (Serangoon North), and Tiong Bahru Yi Sheng Fried Hokkien Mee (ABC Food Centre).

Which is your favourite?

Nam Sing’s Hokkien Mee ($5 at Old Airport, $6 or $10 at ION Orchard) has a different style all together.

I also find differing standards in both places it is served – so depends if you want the ‘original’ taste or air-conditioned comfort.

It is usually cooked to the dry side using thin vermicelli rather than the thick bee hoon style, with strong seafood flavours coming from the prawn and ikan billis stock.

You would find a higher proportion of thin bee hoon than yellow noodles here, so perhaps the overall texture is not as ‘creamy’ especially if you dabao back.

Of all the stock base, this came across as one of the sweetest. It is supposedly prepared with seafood, slow-cooked to taste. I do enjoy it when the thin bee hoon has absorbed the flavours of the stock.

Also included are fresh squid and prawns which are de-shelled for easier consumption, though I think some customers may wish for more generous servings.

Another thing to note is that eggs are fried till fluffy with separate pieces, rather than ‘clinging’ on to the noodles.

Also, they do not serve sambal chilli but instead with cut chillies. A decent plate with its own character, though I wished there was more wok-hei.
