Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee @ Jurong West Ave 5 - A Delicious Discovery In The Old Jalan Bahar Camp


Little did I know the old Jalan Bahar Camp at Jurong West Ave 5 has been redeveloped. The old camp area now sits a Sheng Siong Supermarket, warehouse and food court. Not known to many, there is an excellent Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee in what is known as the Sheng Siong Food Court or FM Food Master Food Court.


The fried hokkien prawn mee stall offers quite a variety such as Slipper Lobster Fried Hokkien Mee ($10), Big Prawn Fried Hokkien Mee ($8), La La Fried Hokkien Mee ($8), Roasted Pork Hokkien Mee ($8) and Fried Hokkien Mee ($4/ $5/ $8). There is even a Premium Fried Hokkien Mee ($25) which comes with slipper lobster, la la, big prawns, roasted pork and squid. On top of that, it sells Fried Carrot Cake and Fried Oyster.

I only tried the Roasted Pork Fried Hokkien Mee ($8) as I am alone. The stall woks up a wet version of the hokkien mee, which reminds me of Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle. It comes in a generous portion of prawns and roasted pork, soaked in a robust prawny broth packed with depth. Even the chilli goes very well with the slurping goodness.


Overall, it is a good plate of fried hokkien prawn mee. However, if there is any room for improvement, it needs more wok hei to the plate of goodness. According to my friend who lives nearby, it also depends on who is behind the wok. The young Malaysian chap fries a better plate of hokkien mee.
