Hor Fun Premium (Alexandra Village Food Centre)

$4.50 Mixed Hor Fun
Hor Fun Premium specialises in Hor Fun. Its offering also includes Mui Fan and Pork Ribs Rice. I am a fan of Hor Fun and after the owner of Four Seas Fried Mee & Rice•Fried HorFun (Albert Centre Market & Food Centre) retired, I have never found one of similar quality. While Hor Fun Premium did not match the exact standard and quality of Four Seas, it is the next best.

What makes this stall stand out is that the Hor Fun was fried under high heat, infusing the wok hei aroma in it. I would have thought that this is a given. But in reality, it is not. I have eaten Hor Fun so many times where this aroma is not present.
The $4.50 Mixed Hor Fun comes with prawns, slices of fish and meat with vegetables. It would have been perfect if it had comes with squid and more egg. The hawker has probably used an egg for a few plates of Hor Fun, which unfortunately is a common practice. Taste wise, it was decent. The ingredients were fresh and well fried.

This is the $4.50 Beef Hor Fun. What stood out was that the beef was amazingly tender.

The good news is that because the stall only sells these few food items, the turnaround is very fast. Hence, most of the time, there is no queue.

Come Daily Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee 天天来炒福建虾面 (Toa Payoh)

If you are a fan of Hokkien Prawn Mee, you would have probably heard of this stall before. Come Daily Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee is a very popular Hokkien Prawn Mee located at Toa Payoh Lorong 1. Unlike its stall name, even if you visit the stall daily, it does not open every day.

Personally, I have always wanted to visit this stall for many years. But due to its location, I did not visit the stall. It is 10 minute walk from Braddell MRT station and 15 minute walk from Toa Payoh MRT station. Yes, it is walkable from Toa Payoh MRT station, provided you know all the short cuts! I only found out about this recently.

I heard that there are long queues during lunch time and that it would be at least a 30 minutes wait. Hence, I visited in the morning for breakfast. As I went at 8am on a weekday, there was no queue. The Hokkien Prawn Mee comes in $4, $5, $8 and $10 version. There is also a $18 version suitable for 3 to 4 pax.  

Unlike the version at Golden Mile Food Centre, Come Daily Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee’s version is creamy and gooey. Overall, it was delicious as each strand of noodle was coated with sweet, tasty and fragrant sauce (broth). The serving given for $4 was generous too.

Interestingly, the noodles seems to have been cut as they were shorter than usual. This made it a lot easier to eat using the spoon, instead of chopsticks, which to me is a better way of enjoying the Hokkien Prawn Noodles. This is because, each spoonful would be accompanied with more sauce/broth.

Ps: I am never good with language especially when it comes to dishes such as Hokkien Prawn Mee. But I must state that this is a very decent plate Hokkien Prawn Mee.

Seletar Sheng Mian & Mian Fen Guo (Toa Payoh Lorong 8)

Sheng Mian $5
Seletar Sheng Mian & Mian Fen Guo, a hawker stall, has been highly raved about by many foodies. Many have raved about its sheng mian, chilli and soup.

Interestingly, Seletar Sheng Mian & Mian Fen Guo is located at Kebun Baru Food Centre and Toa Payoh Lorong 8 Food Centre. I was told that it has a third outlet at Aljunied. However, I am unable to verify this over the internet.

I had tried visiting the stall before at Toa Payoh Lorong 8 Food Centre, but had no luck then as the stall was closed although it was a Friday. This time, I was glad that I got to try it at long last. I visited on a Friday during lunch time. Despite the queue at the stall, the turnover was fast as there were 2 persons in the stall cooking the noodles, 1 person preparing the ingredients and 1 person taking orders and collecting the payment.
Sheng Mian $5

I ordered the $5 dry version Sheng Mian with chilli. It came with 4 pieces of prawns and slices of pork meat. Personally, I felt that the chilli, which played a critical role in any dry noodle dish, was disappointing. It was spicy but not fragrance. As a whole, the noodles with the chilli was average. Taste wise, it was not out of the world. But the soup was delicious. It was so tasty, robust and sweet that I finished every single drop and did not feel thirsty at all (no MSG).
Sheng Mian $5

Maybe I should try its soup version instead in the next opportunity. Do note that the hawker stall will be undergoing renovation for 3 months from 22 April 2019.
