Top Best Hokkien Mee in Singapore

Hokkien Mee

We spent months searching for the best Hokkien mee in Singapore, travelled North South East West of the island and finally managed to lock in the best. So far we have explored more than twenty reputable Hokkien mee stalls across the island in Singapore. Is your favorite Hokkien mee in the list as well?

Our definition of what the Best Hokkien Mee should be like:

  • Noodles are infused with charred flavor
  • Seafood flavor mingled with the fragrance of perfectly cooked eggs
  • Perfect noodle texture that not too gooey or too dry. Please no strong alkaline taste from the yellow noodle
  • Not sugary sweet – Ingredients must be fresh and not overcooked or undercooked
  • Chili is important for some but we think a good plate of Hokkien mee seriously don’t need it

What are our top picks Hokkien mee stalls? (Not in specific order, there are the best that able to fulfill most of our requirements in one way or another)

Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle

Top Best Hokkien Mee in Singapore
Cooked by a young man but never underestimate his culinary skills, the plate of Hokkien mee is so enticing to the palate that you will never forget him.

The winning formula is his generosity with the eggs and the way how the eggs are cooked, it greatly boosted the overall aroma, in fact, egg is one of the most kept secret for a good plate of Hokkien mee, and most of the Hokkien mee stalls seem to neglect it. Xiao Di obviously discovered the trick and has mastered it. Try it and you will understand what we meant.

Ah Hock Fried Hokkien Noodles

We were a little hesitated to include this stall but after some serious discussion and we decided to add in to one of the top picks. Overall, Ah Hock Hokkien mee will definitely not going to disappoint you although it was a little on the dry side but the flavour is irresistible.

Nam Sing Hokkien Mee

No Hokkien mee stall even keep us waited for such a long time amongst those stalls we had patronised, 45 minutes to an hour wait is nothing unusual! However, we think the wait is worthwhile with the well balanced sumptuous taste. For every trip we visit the food centre, it is inevitable to have a plate of Name Sing Hokkien mee on our table.

Tian Tian Lai Fried Hokkien Mee

Our first visit to Tian Tian Lai was a disappointment but it was the second visit that we changed our view, look for the right chef before you place the order, there is a big difference in taste if cooked by the helper or it is cooked by Jason – the real successor of Tian Tian Lai, in the blunt way, the taste is between hell and heaven.

Geylang Lorong 29 Swee Guan Hokkien Mee

One of the very few Hokkien mee stalls cooked using Charcoal, may be it is truth to some extent charcoal do some wonder to the taste but the stock, seasoning and ingredients with the right skills are all paramount to whip out a plate of good Hokkien mee, that is how people rave about Swee Guan and we can concur.

Geylang Lorong 29 East Coast Hokkien Mee

Cooked by another brother of Swee Guan Hokkien mee at Geylang lorong 29, the mee is very gooey and we thought the noodle was overcooked, surprisingly, the noodles are tasted really good and comparable to Swee Guan

Of course, like or dislike is very much dependent on individual taste buds, so, don’t get upset if your top favorite is not one of our top picks, take it as a reference if you have a craving for best Hokkien mee in Singapore. Enjoy!
