Yishun 81 Food Court may not sound familiar even to Yishunians but mention the famous 925 chicken rice and i bet some of you would immediately recall the exact location!
Within the same kopitiam / food court was actually another notable hawker which had been there for as long as i remember the chicken rice stall although its queue may not be as legendary
The hokkien mee which goes by the name of Toa Payoh (Lorong 1) Come Daily Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle! It's such a mouthful that my family named it simply as 925 hokkien mee.
I have been wanting to blog about it for the longest time ever and the procrastination stopped due to a sudden craving for hokkien mee after the movie "Now You See Me 2" at Yishun 10! Now, i was supposed to have salad and it's extremely rare to catch me eating carbo-heavy food after 7pm!
Sadness / lack of determination aside, i was glad to "satisfy" my need with a spike in the happiness quotient given the generous amount of crispy pork lard that can be self served via the huge container at the stall. *loved*
Every strand of noodle was swimming in rich, flavourful stock and every spoonful was a delightful moment. Those looking for a robust flavour may find this a tad too sweet even though it's exactly this sweetness that complemented with the spicy sourness of the chilli.
Satisfied, i was!
