Eng Ho Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee @ Ang Mo Kio
I have been staying in Ang Mo Kio for close to 3 decades and giving tuition around Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 for about 8 years, but I have never ever tried Eng Ho Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee. Perhaps I was turned off by the queue, perhaps I was always in a rush… but I finally tried it last week when my student highly recommended it! Got the boy to reach earlier to queue, but he assumed that there was no crowd because there was no one queuing at the stall front. When I came down and ordered our hokkien mee, we have to wait for 30 minutes! It is really hard to find good hokkien mee nowadays, and personally, I prefer those fried with thin bee hoon rather than the thick ones. Eng Ho hits the spot by using thin bee hoon in their Hokkein prawn noodle which absorbs all the sweet goodness in their soup. Do you know they are relatives to the owners of Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee and Ah Hock Fri...
