There are the wet types, the dry ones, and the most important, different kinds of chilli. I mean what’s Hokkien Mee without the chilli? And so we decided to sniff out the 10 best Hokkien Mee stalls in Singapore, that’s worth every penny.

Tian Tian Lai
All Hokkien Mee lovers would definitely know this famous store. Generous and affordable, the noodles are fried to a perfection, with loads of fried lard and pork strips that burst in your mouth with every bite.

Address: Blk 127 Toa Payoh Lor 1, #02-27, Singapore 310127
Operating hours: 9.30am to 6pm (Closed Mon)

Geylang Lor 29 Fried Hokkien Mee
Located along East Coast, this store is one of the few who cooks Hokkien Mee in the traditional way–using charcoal. This adds a nice wok hei fragrance to the noodles, which is probably why customers are travelling from afar to have a taste of it.

Address: 396 East Coast Road, Singapore 428994
Operating hours: 11.30am to 9.30pm (Closed Mon)

Swee Guan Hokkien Mee
This is actually run by the same family from the Geylang Lorong 29 Hokkien Mee stall, and their hokkien mee is cooked in the same way. If East Coast is too far for you, this could be your next alternative!

Address: 549 Geylang Road, Lorong 29, Singapore 389504
Operating hours: 5pm to 11pm (Daily)

Nam Sing Hokkien Fried mee
Using thin beehon, Nam Sing’s hokkien mee is drier than the usual ones you see out there. We recommend going there earlier because their food is sold out pretty quickly, and it tastes better during off-peak hours.

Address: Blk 51 Old Airport Road,#01-32, Singapore 390051
perating hours: 7am till Sold Out (No fixed rest day)

Hainan Hokkien Mee
This awesome Hokkien Mee might require some waiting time, but believe us when we say it’s totally worth every minute of your time. Simmered till perfection, this Hokkien Mee is extremely flavourful and it’s definitely hands down one of the best dry ones in Singapore.

Address:  505 Beach Road, #B1-32, Singapore 199583
Operating Hours: 10am – 8pm (Closed Fri)

Xie Kee Hokkien Mee
Instead of the usual yellow noodles and beehoon, this store uses flat noodles that brings out the same awesome taste, if not even better. The stock is extremely rich, and the noodles: amazing. Priced at $2,50 or $3, I would say it’s worth the trip down!

Address: Blk 116 Upper Bukit Timah Road, #02-174, Singapore 588172

Yang Zhou Fried Hokkien Mee
Health conscious people, listen up! You can now eat your favourite Hokkien Mee with lesser calories intake. The chef uses significantly lesser salt while cooking, and makes up for it with the huge amount of lard. Well, you can always ask for lesser of course. And let’s face it, saturated fats beats trans fats!

Address: Blk 40 Beo Crescent, #01-16, Singapore 160040
Operating hours: 10am to 8pm (Closed Fri)


Sheng Seng Fried Prawn Noodle
With prices of food increasing these days, hawker food are getting more and more pricey as well. However, for just $2.50, you’re given a huge serving of food with seafood. And it’s pretty darn good as well, which the long queue can attest to.

Address: Blk 41A Cambridge Road, #01-40, Singapore 211041
Operating hours: 11.30am to 5pm (Closed Mon)

Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodle
The reason behind the name of the store is because the owner is in his mid-twenties, but that doesn’t mean his Hokkien Mee is not up to scratch. With generous portions of eggs fried together with the noodles, this plate of goodness is more than worthy to contest against other Hokkien Mee masters.

Address: Block 153 Serangoon North Avenue 1, Singapore 551153
Operating Hours: 11am – 8pm daily, closed on Monday

Chomp Chomp
Known for its famous oyster omelette, the Hokkien Mee is also one of which many customers order. I especially love the sambal that pairs perfectly with the noodles, which are slightly on the wet side. Not to mention the generous portion of noodles that never fails to leave me walking out feeling incredibly satisfied.


Address: 20 Kensington Park Rd, Singapore 557269
Operating Hours: 5PM to 12AM
