Well after that little uneventful minute breakfast at Pastamania, the guys decided to go for Round 2. I seriously wonder why we even bother to exercise…
The food court at Sembawang MRT Station seemed rather attractive for its decent pricing and especially with an ongoing promotion on various dishes at the stall, the place seemed even more attractive…beautiful rather.
I decided to order a plate of Hokkien Mee, when I noticed two prominent awards on display at the shop’s front. A certificate from Makansutra with a “Die Die Must Try” rating for its Hokkien Mee and Char Kway Teow and a feature from The Sunday Times Live Eats!
The Hokkien Mee ($3.50, promotion $3.00) is definitely what I would call “A Skilled Creation”. The lady displayed a certain prowess in frying up a smoky, fragrant batch of noodles smothered excellently with a hearty prawn broth.
It tasted savoury, with a very strong hint of the presence of prawns all about. The noodles itself were wet and not dry, almost to an extent of it being a little viscous and not thin. And I particularly enjoyed the glistening shine that sparkled on the noodles.
Still, it was not a “Die Die Must Try” for me as I personally would prefer a not too “thick” variety. I prefer mine to be slightly wetter with a more delicate and well balanced savoury taste throughout and not just concentrated in each bite that leaves a slightly salty aftertaste.
The Char Kway Teow ($3.00) was “ta pao-ed” for home. So I guess that the walk made it a little soggy and not entirely fragrant as I expected. Still, it bode a strong smoky flavour with hints of sweetness, spiciness and “lemakness” Good, but definitely sinful.
The Stall name is “Fried Kway Teow” but I reckon that with its accolades hailing it as “Yu Kee Duck Rice & Noodle Pte Ltd”, I guess that should be how I name this stall. A stall of temptations, where I must definitely remind myself not to visit again after any exercise.
