Singaporeans love Hokkien Mee. In contrast to the Malaysian version which uses dark soy sauce and thick noodles, the Singaporean version uses yellow noodles with bee hoon and is cooked with pork or prawn stock. We have gathered 10 best Hokkien Noodles in Singapore. Let’s see which stall makes it to the list!
1. Tian Tian Lai (Come Daily) Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee
Tian Tian Lai (Come Daily) is considered to be one of the top 3 best Hokkien Mee in Singapore. Singaporeans and even tourists come here for its flavourful and strong prawn stock. The crispy fried pork fats complement really well with the cooked rice noodles and egg noodles. The “wok hei” will definitely wow you with each bite. No wonder people are willing to queue for at least 45 minutes to 1 hour for a plate of hokkien noodles, especially during peak hours on weekends.

2. Ah Hock Fried Hokkien Noodles
Situated at Chomp Chomp Food Centre, Ah Hock serves a drier version of fried hokkien mee when compared to the usual ones. Instead of using pork lard, Ah Hock uses pork and prawn stock to cook the broth for an aromatic taste. The noodles are fried until all the broth is absorbed. Served with their special chilli sauce, this plate of Hokkien Mee will make you crave for more.
Address: 57 Garden Way, Chomp Chomp Food Centre Stall 27 Serangoon Gardens, Singapore
Opening Hours: 5.30pm – 12am (Wednesday to Monday); Closed on Tuesday
3. Geylang Lor 29 Fried Hokkien Mee
Don’t be deceived by its name, Geylang Lor 29 is actually located at East Coast Road. It is operated by the brother of the original stall at Geylang. The main highlight is that it still uses the traditional charcoal fire to fry the noodle, thus giving the noodle a strong “wok hei” fragrance. So it might take around 20 to 30 minutes for the chef to prepare your dish. If you’re a seafood lover, this might be the place for you as a generous amount of fresh prawns and squids are given in each plate. Do note that a regular serving size might be sufficient for 2 persons.

Opening Hours: 11:45am – 9pm (Tuesday to Sunday); Closed on Monday
4. Swee Guan Hokkien Mee
Located at Geylang, Swee Guan is the original stall of Geylang Lor 29 (the one we mentioned at #3). The stall’s name was changed to Swee Guan to avoid any confusion. Also cooked using traditional charcoal fire, Swee Guan serves one of the best hokkien noodles in Singapore. It has a similar taste to the one on #3. However, many Singaporeans prefer Swee Guan’s as the “wok hei” and smokiness of each bite is simply amazing.

Opening Hours: 5pm – 10pm (Thursday – Tuesday); Closed on Wednesday
5. Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee
Nam Sing’s Hokkien Mee is a dry version of the usual hokkien mee. One thing worth noting is that it uses thin bee hoon instead of the thick one. The yellow noodles and thin bee hoon soaked in the light and savoury gravy is what people crave for. Served with sliced chilli in soya sauce, the stall’s owner refuses to use sambal chilli as they feel it will cover up the original taste of their signature dish.

6. Hainan Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee
If you are a fan of wet hokkien mee, Hainan’s version might not be your cup of tea. It also serves a dry version of hokkien mee. What makes it special is that the stock is left to simmer until all flavours are absorbed into the noodles and bee hoon. You are guaranteed to get a rich and immense smoky flavour in every mouthful. Definitely a must try!

7. New Ubin Seafood
Most of us know that New Ubin Seafood serves delicious US Black Angus Ribeye steaks. However, its Fried Hokkien Mee Special is worth mentioning for those who like a wet and gooey version. The strong seafood stock gives the gravy a savoury taste, just enough for a burst of flavour inside your mouth. Instead of the normal version, New Ubin uses thick bee hoon and thinner yellow noodle for a unique texture.

8. Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle
Believe it or not – considered to be one of the best in Singapore, Xiao Di’s Hokkien Mee is actually cooked by a young hawker who is in his late twenties. The noodle is wet and gooey, with a strong “wok hei” fragrance. In addition to the taste of garlic and pork lard, you can definitely taste the prawn stock in every bite of the noodles. Served with Xiao Di’s special chilli sauce, it gives the dish a slightly sour flavour.

9. Nam Kee Fried Prawn Noodle
If you happen to visit Clementi Hawker Centre, Nam Kee is one that you shouldn’t miss. Well infused with the aromatic seafood stock, the noodles and bee hoon are cooked with a chewy texture.

10. Kim’s Famous Hokkien Prawn Mee
Speaking of Hokkien Mee, most Singaporeans will think about Kim’s place as it has a long history starting from the year 1965. The hokkien mee is cooked just nice, not too soggy nor too dry. They are known to only use fresh seafood ingredients. And have we mentioned that the amount of prawns and squids given are generous? However, some might say that the quality has dropped throughout the years as the taste was not as flavourful as compared to the past.
