Hin Hor Fun With Prawn. Beef. Sliced Fish (Ghim Moh Hawker Centre)

It is hard to miss this stall with its bright red signboard and long queue. Hin Hor Fun With Prawn. Beef. Sliced Fish is located in the middle of Ghim Moh Hawker Centre and there is a perpectual long queue during lunch time, stretching to more than 10 person long. 

They have recently increased the price of their Hor Fun from $5 to $6, a 20% increase. This is the plight of rising costs (gas, utilities, ingredients, manpower etc) for business owners and even hawkers. Currently, $6 is quite unheard of for Hor Fun at a hawker centre. But I believe that it will be the norm within a few more months due to stagflation. 

Although the queue was long, it moved fast as the Hor Fun ingredients were already prepared and they were constantly frying fresh batch of smoking hot Hor Fun.

$6 Hor Fun with Beef

I ordered the $6 Hor Fun with Beef

I was surprised that they were still so generous with the ingredients. To be frank, I was glad that they increased the price and maintained the portion, quality and taste. Unlike some businesses that decrease portion and increase price.

Back to the Hor Fun with Beef, it looks so simple and dull, yet they totally nailed it in terms of taste. The Hor Fun was well fried with strong aroma of wok hei. The brown sauce provided contrasting flavours that alternated between smokey and caramelised flavours. I also noticed that they really used hor fun (wide flat rice noodles). Some places, they use kway teow (llong and thin flat rice noodles) for their hor fun. The beef slices were oh-so tender and soft!

I love their hor fun and will certainly continue to patronise them!

Min Ji Laksa 民记叻沙 (Bendemeer Market and Food Centre)


Min Ji Laksa 民记叻沙 is a stall located in Bendemeer Market and Food Centre selling only 2 items, Laksa and Mee Rebus. 

Both dishes are highly raved about in the internet sphere. 

Since I seldom come to this area, I went straight for the most expensive, $5 laksa. I arrived at around 11.45 and there was already a queue at the stall. 

The Laksa was packed with ingredients; hard boiled egg, shredded chicken meat, cockles, slices of fish cake and tau pok with a handful of beansprouts. My default choice of noodles for laksa is always thick beehoon. 

Look at the big fat juicy cockles.

The laksa gravy was light yet so flavourful with a strong coconut fragrance. Once you start slurping the noodles with the laksa gravy, you cannot stop. That is how good it was.

If I live around the area, I will probably be eating this every couple of weeks! Wish that they would move to Yishun!

Kok Kee Wanton Noodle 国记云吞面 (Lavendar)

Kok Kee Wanton Noodle 国记云吞面 (Lavendar) has been a stall I have been wanting try for years.I was thrilled to be sent on course with the course location a 5 minutes walk away from Kok Kee. 
Jumbo seems to have completed the $2.1 million acquisition for a 75% stake in the stall and brand as the owners are not spotted at the stall. 
In addition, the staff are now wearing uniforms. 
Price wise, I understand that it has not changed since the acquisition. Each plate of Wanton Noodle starts at $5. 
I wanted to try both the dumplings and wanton. Hence, I ordered the $5 wanton noodles and added on two dumplings for $2. Which means each dumpling cost $1 and the total cost of the meal was $7. If you ask me, price is on the higher end. Unless Jumbo expands the number of outlets aggressively, I wonder when they are going to breakeven and generate returns for their shareholders. 
I have never tried Kok Kee before and cannot compare the taste prior to the acquisition. What stood out for me was the wanton noodle. It tasted so difference from elsewhere. Each strand of noodle was so smooth, soft yet springy. With their home made special sauce I found myself slurping the noodles endlessly. It was that good. The two pieces of wanton and char siew were average. At least the dumpling was decent, big in size and had a crunchy bite. The star of the dish was really the noodles with the special sauce. Not too sure that it is worth the $5 price tag.
