Thick with gravy and redolent of wok hei, these are the best plates of Hokkien mee that the Simply Her team has tried.
Lala Hokkien Mee at Penang Seafood Restaurant (76 Lor 25A Geylang, tel: 6841-3002). I love how the noodles are thick with gravy but not soggy, and high on the wok hei ─ ooh and the crispy pork lard adds such great crunch! It's pricier, starting at $8 but the portion is huge and brimming with prawns, sotong, and la la (clams). - Mia Chenyze, consumer and lifestyle writer
I get my fix at the stall at Food Republic in Wisma Atria. I like that there's ample gravy, and that they're generous with the seafood. The opeh leaf really adds to the fragrance too. I love that I can be shopping in town and still tuck into my favourite local food at reasonable prices. - Kayce Teo, features writer
Kim Keat Hokkien Mee (#01-264, 92 Toa Payoh Lor 4, tel: 9456-0413), which serves up Hokkien mee in a sizzling claypot. Pretty much anything served in a claypot is comfort food, right? It's so soupy, and because the pork belly strips are deep-fried till crisp, I don't get overwhelmed by the 'porky' taste. It's a bit of a race against time though, to down it all before the broth gets fully soaked up! - Simone Wu, beauty editor
I go to Geylang Lor 29 Fried Hokkien Mee (396 East Coast Road), which is actually located along East Coast Road. I like the sweetness of the stock the uncle uses, and it's great value for money because there's so much liao and the portion is big. You gotta be prepared to wait about 20 minutes for your food at peak hour though. - Ann Neo, senior designer
