Tiong Bahru Yi Sheng Fried Hokkien Mee (中峇鲁益生炒福建虾面) @ ABC Brickworks Food Centre [Behind IKEA Queensway]

Everyone knows that the dessert stall in ABC market serves a really mean chendol drenched with such generous amount of gula melaka; it is almost guaranteed to make a dietician faint on the spot!

But have you ever noticed this hokkien mee stall located right opposite the dessert stall? I didn't - at least not until i realised the long queue that formed at dinnertime a couple of weeks ago.

Given i was still recovering from my wrist surgery at that point, the chance to try a plate was delayed until last weekend. Frankly, i was so craving for hokkien mee since that surgery!

No thanks to a former classmate, Tang Chee Hoe, who keeps reminding me of our constantly postponed (my fault) trip to an epic hokkien mee stall hidden in an area very near to Yishun!!

Anyway, this fried prawn mee will be what locals call the wet version; the prawn stock was thick with a flavourful consistency that did a fantastic job (judging from the slurpiness) in sticking to the many strands of yellow noodles and bee hoon.

Kon felt that the noodles lacked the wok-hei although i thought it could be forgiven when you add in the homemade sambal belachan that was way different from the generic type found in most hokkien mee; it was definitely more spicy yet there was an unstoppable addictive kick to it!
