I was alerted by my friend, MissTamChiak that there is a pretty good Hokkien Mee stall - YouFu Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle at Golden Mile Food Centre cooked by a young 21 years old hawker. That is pretty young to take up the spatula and cook Hokkien Mee, which needed a lot of skill.
Hokkien Mee with Thick Vermicelli 4/5
The Hokkien Mee here is the dry type and comes in two versions for customers to choose. You can request for either the thick or thin vermicelli. I would recommend the thin vermicelli because it tends to soak up the broth and smoky wok hei more.
For $5 a plate, it comes with prawn, pork belly slices and squid. Not forgetting that you can add your own pork lards. As for the chilli, it is not bad, but my followers will know that I prefer the tangy type, which I think is more appetising.
Hokkien Mee with Thick Vermicelli 4.2/5
For 21 years old, I have to say Andre woks up a really delicious plate of Hokkien Mee which is already better than a lot of places. He picked up the skill from his father who used to sell fried hokkien mee at Changi Village. By the way, the father is also helping out at the stall too. He also shared that his son skill is not perfect yet, but I am sure with time and experience, he will only get better.
For those that are taking away their order, the hokkien mee will be wrapped in opeh leaf which enhances the flavour. Overall, this is a decent plate of hokkien mee that is way better than many places. I personally feel that the stall should improve on the chilli sauce to make it more enjoyable.
