Charcoal Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee
This was pretty good, much better than I expected. Charcoal fried Hokkien mee at the Kim San Leng coffeeshop on the junction of Telok Kurau and Changi Road. Yummy enough to get me thinking about coming back even before I left.
It's so gooey and rich, but still has lightly charred bits of noodle and egg. They use thin beehoon here, which works very well. Don't wait too long to eat it (as if anyone would), as the stock or gravy kinda coagulates when it gets cold. The S$3 portion is a rather small plate, but gives you at least 4 prawns. I'd order a larger plate next time.
The heat from the charcoal stove is so strong, I could not bear to stand long in front of the stall. But I welcome the "wok hei" for the dish itself!
I actually came for oyster omelette, which is apparently quite good too, but they didn't have it that evening. All the more reason to come back again!
