A wait of more than forty minutes is not impossible on weekends when you order hokkien mee from this famous stall in Chomp Chomp hawker centre.
Nonetheless, i am grateful that Ah Hock is not a self service stall where you have to stand and queue in a smoky environment for extended period of time!
The whiff of freshly fried noodles simmered in a seafood stock was invigorating for the soul; especially when you couple it with a hungry stomach eager to snatch any edible thing that was placed on the table.
Each mouthful of the yellow noodles mixed with strands of beehoon was met with the flavourful seafood essence but we found the dish to be too dry and would definitely do better with more delicious gravy! At S$3 a plate, i counted two prawns and quite a generous serving of sotongs (squids).
Overall, this was quite a good (note: not exceptional) rendition of Singapore style hokkien mee.
