Pin Wei Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun 品味港式猪肠粉 (Pek Kio Food Centre)

I made two trips down to Pek Kio Market and Food Centre on a Saturday and Saturday for breakfast as I have been wanting to try the popular Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodle 華記大蝦麵.

But however, the stall was closed on both days! Never mind, there are other food worth eating in this food centre too!

As I was walking around searching for another stall to patronise, I spotted this unique stall called Pin Wei Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun 品味港式猪肠粉. This stall is located directly opposite Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodle.

What caught my attention was neither the queue nor was it the menu which offered Scallop ($4) and Abalone ($16.80) Chee Chong Fun. It was instead the fact that each piece of Chee Chong Fun was freshly made upon order, the traditional way (using a cloth)! Not factory made! 
The reason why there was a queue was because at anyone time, only two Chee Chong Fun (Steamed Rice Noodle Rolls) could be made. Standing there, observing the way the Chee Chong Fun was made, I must say that it was an enriching experience seeing the whole process of it and watching their nimble hands at work. The owner, the man in white shirt was friendly and approachable.
Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun $2.50
I ordered the Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun which cost $2.50.

The owner does not stinge on the ingredients. For $2.50, I got a plate of Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun which was double the portion of what is served elsewhere with another layer of Chee Cheong Fun stacked on top. In addition, there were lots of Char Siew fillings.

The Chee Cheong Fun was served in a delectable well-balanced sauce that comprised of light soy sauce and sesame oil. Personally, I preferred this type of sauce compared to version with dark soy sauce. Fragrant sesame seeds were sprinkled on top to enhance the taste. This Chee Cheong Fun; steamed rice roll was soft, thin and smooth, it was also able to hold the fillings without breaking.  
Pin Wei Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun is certainly worth a try as it is of similar standard (or even better) to those served at restaurants and cheaper too! I can imagine myself having this for breakfast every weekend if I am staying at the block of flats next to it!

Life is interesting isn't? If Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodle was not closed, I would not have discovered this Chee Cheong Fun Stall! Literally - "When one door closes, another opens."

ps: I noticed that more people ordered the Prawn Chee Chong Fun which cost $4.

  1. Not easy to find those chee cheong fun with nice fillings inside. Nice sharing!

    1. yes! Its hard to finds such stalls! that really do it the DIY way! if you know of any others, pl let me know.

      Off hand, another similar stall is the Hum Jin Pang 中国街咸煎饼 (Maxwell Food Centre).

  2. Looks so good and its my fav. The pieces with char siew and drenched in the sauce are just a simple combo but I can imagine the flavors arising.

    1. Yes, it was good! Hard to find such freshly made ones in our hawker centres

  3. i always thot pek kio was at hougang! now i realize it's not too far from the city!

    1. To be frank I had no idea that it was so near the city, near novena too!

      If you drive, convenient! Taking public transport will be more troublesome.

  4. this stall was featured in the sunday lifestyle section yesterday!
