Hokkien Mee

$3.00 · 14 Reviews

They use a flat yellow noodle, like those in lor mee.

A cheap plate of hokkien mee.

Not a fan of their sambal, a little too sweet for my liking.

Overall quite a decent eat.

It's been here for a long Time, and always have a queue

This is the much vaunted Xie Kee Hokkien Mee in Bukit Timah Market and Food Center. The market is always crowded during lunch and with safety distancing, there are not many seats left for dine in. So I decided to packet home for lunch.

Big mistake. When it was being cooked and packed, I saw the noodles being slurpy and wet. By the time I got home, it was clumpy and the noodles all bloated.

I have to go back and try on the spot. And brave the rant of the owner about the pandemic and the havoc it has created for him.


They use flat yellow noodles instead of your typical yellow noodles and though it might be a small change, it makes all the world of a difference texture wise. Might be a bit bias when I say that this is my favourite Hokkien mee in Singapore but it’s really quite up there.

The only thing it might lack compared to the one at ABC Brickwerkz is the wok hei. Other than that, a wholesome plate of Hokkien mee with rich broth and flavourful noodles.

Start queuing now!

Has remained one of the stall’s loyal followers for more than two decades. This comforting plate of Hokkien mee is a must order whenever we visit Bukit Timah Food Centre. The distinct difference of their version from other stalls is the use of flat yellow noodles with thick bee hoon, fried to a thick & gooey texture. 😋

$3 per plate. Especially good after a hike at bkt timah hill

I have been wanting to try this particular store out since it is quite popular and is located along the way to school! This food centre is always crowded but somehow i always manage to find a seat. ⠀

The noodle that they use is the flat kind which different from other stores. I can definitely taste some wok hei in it but i feel like this was kind of just above average and lacking in taste. I wouldn't say it is extremely tasty but you can try it out if you're in the vicinity?⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀✨#sgig #sgcafe #sgeats #sgfood #forkyeah #foodandwine #f52grams #sgfoodporn #instafood #food #foodie #foodporn #foodshare #foodstagram #foodspotting #foreverhungry #foodphotography #eeeeeats #foodgasm #burpple #onthetable #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #feedfeed #onthetableproject #bestfoodworld #devourpower


Another hidden gem in the bukit timah food centre! This was my first time trying hokkien mee fried using the flat noodles instead of the usual yellow noodles, which was probably the reason why it leaves an impression on customers! $3 for a plate of fried hokkien mee with a reasonable amount of prawns and sotongs. Before he scoops up a plate for you, the stall owner uncle would first add in a ladle of the soup stock. I could also taste the burst of flavors with the strong wok hei as the noodles seemed to have absorbed the soup stock really well!



Run by father-son duo, this humble, no-frills stall behind He Zhong Carrot Cake dishes out gravy ladened Hokkien Mee (from $3) on signature green or orange plates. Uncle shares that he's been in the business for 42 years, and chooses to use flat yellow noodles rather than the normal yellow noodles because he likes the way it tastes better. Rather than cooking one plate at a time, he cooks up a big order and then portions it accordingly. For Tastemaker Rachel Xie, she loves how spot on the texture of the "gloopy sauce-slicked noodles" are — making her 10 minute wait well worth it!

Fried Hokkien Mee ($3)

Nothing beats comfort food from the hawker centre! While this plate of hokkien mee isn't particularly outstanding, I would not hesitate ordering this again if I am at 7th Mile Bukit Timah Food Centre! Of the various editions of one of our most loved hawker fare, I love the kind that uses thick bee hoon and flat yellow noodles, fried full of wok-hei and is hovering somewhere between semi wet and not too dry so that I can savour the zhup as I slurp up the noodles because it is thick enough to stay coated on the noodles! Yum yum😋!
