Crayfish Prawn Horfun @ Tuck Kee (Ipoh) Sah Hor Fun (德记怡保沙河粉) in Hong Lim Hawker Centre [Chinatown, Singapore]

I don't have a feet fetish but i thought this would be a more subtle way to reflect the popularity of a particular stall in Hong Lim Food Centre without having to compromise the shyness of those in the queue.

The stall in question was said to have the longest queue in the hawker centre and after hearing quite a number of positive reviews, i guess it's about time for me to give it a try and give my two-cent worth in this blog.

Makansutra gave it a die-die-must-try rating back in 2013! As i mentioned in food philosophy, one person's meat could be another person's poison and there are just too many factors affecting "your taste" for that moment.

Notwithstanding the disclaimer, let me present to you the luxurious (at least for hawker standard) Crayfish Prawn Horfun! Don't start digging in; mix it up before you put anything in your mouth!

I made the mistake of tasting the flat noodles first (without mixing) and it was dry obviously since there was a huge pool of savoury sauce that i am supposed to make use of! The seafood ingredients had a firm texture with a sweet freshness; no complaint on that.

However, the thick gravy didn't excite me as much as the chicken chop horfun from Changi Village. There was something lacking; an oomph that would have made a lasting impression. No matter what, it was still a good plate of horfun and i had to do it justice by cleaning up everything (especially the crayfish and prawns)!
