Good Eats: Hokkien Mee in Upper Serangoon

Yes! Remember that man's face. It is the face of the man who has been dishing out mouth- watering Hokkien Mee nearly every day for the past twenty years to residents in Hougang and farther away. And the long queues for the food he serves has been around for umpteen years.

Try his Hokkien Mee just once and you will return as a very loyal customer for as long as you live - provided he's still around, of course.

Forget the spartan coffeeshop premises and the stall setup. It's his food that you want to savour! But, the Hokkien Mee is not exactly cheap - S$3 for a small portion. He also sells the dish at S$4 and S$5.

When you are about to tuck into the Hokkien Mee your mind may fret about the price of the dish in relation to the amount of mee in it, but all this thinking will evaporate the second your taste-buds get a sampling of the mee. We aren't kidding you. 

The best proof is in the eating. Hop down to the coffeeshop at the junction of Upper Serangoon and Simon Roads and look for the man. He sometimes does not open on Saturdays, so try to turn up on a weekday if you live quite far away. Then, you won't need worry about coming away empty-handed. The coffeeshop's quite narrow so it's best to ask for a take-away.
