We were at the Chinatown yesterday for lunch and I ordered the 豪记 Hokkien Mee (People's Park market). The hokkien mee was fantastic! I had a $5 plate. Yupz the Hokkien Mee (a.k.a. fried prawn noodle) is more expensive compared to normal hawker food, but since this is a 'branded' stall, so I guess the price is expected to be higher.
The auntie at the stall generously put in 4 prawns and lots of sotong. She didn't put in lard pieces though (or they were too fine to be seen). Well I think all fried prawn noodles would have some lard in one way or another. Luckily the queue was not long and I waited only a short while before I had my plate.
Here's my plate of the Hokkien Mee. The dash of lime juice and the spicy fragrant chilli further enhanced the aroma of the Hokkien Mee. The soup stock was a bit thick, and thus I must say that the $5 plate was somewhat too much for me. Perhaps the $4 plate for a single serving would be better.
P.S.: 豪记 is actually a 高记 (the hakka yong tau foo company) franchise. Surprisingly, fried prawn noodle can also be a franchising idea, wow!
