Kim's Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee @ Jalan Eunos Branch

Recommended Posts

Kim's Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee @ Jalan Eunos Branch

Kims first opened a stall in a coffeeshop at Changi Road in the early 1970's. (At 5 1/2 mile Changi Road)

Oveall, their hokkien prawn mee is in my opinion, better than many other comparable fried hokkien mee.

What is unique about it is that Kim's always wear long sleves and pants with a shiny Rolex watch pluc a distinctive Mercedes belt. He has two large woks.

His version like that of the old school style Hokkien mee is the drier version. Another famous stall serving drier hokkien mee is at old airport road.

The old airport road stall gives less value as his $5/- is a small packet with sliced chilis.

This stall's noodles have condiments of crispy pork lard which adds fragrance and flavour for the noodles. And generous portions of belacan chilli to go with it.

I hardly see Kim doing the frying of the hokkien mee. Often are his worker doing it.

Thus was surprised to see him do it himself, yesterday.

The $8/- packet comes wrapped in the traditional leaf.. as shown in this photo (bottom left):-

The Jalan Eunos premises is run-down and close to the main road thus (call it dusty)... And shortage of nearby parking. Although there are ample parking spaces at the Eunos MRT. 

The staff, here are not exactly that friendly most of the time.

Occasionally I would buy a packet of Hokkien mee (only) and scoot-off...

Mr Rolex and Mercedes personally frying it:-

He has been in this business for at least 40+ years...

Once upon a time, he had lots of versions of Sa-por or earthen pot versions... in his younger days...

Never tried anything else... only aim for the hokkien mee..

P.S. Another branch is at Bugis.
