Took me a while to try Jiak Song out simply because of their infamous long queue when they first opened. But as more and more outlets open islandwide, it has become easier to land your hands on a bowl of their Mee Hoon Kway.

Although there aren’t many options on the menu, everything looked good that I took a while to decide but for first timers, I would recommend the signature all-in combo mee hoon kway. In addition to vegetables and fried ikan bilis, there was a myriad of ingredients such as minced pork, pork slices, pork ball, and prawn ball. Like people around me who have tried (at different outlets), we agreed that the minced pork was exceptionally tender. The handmade pork and prawn balls were really bouncy. But what left the deepest impression has got to be the soup broth which had an egg mixed in it. It was not just about having a rich pork flavour but the unique smokiness that I have never tasted in any mee hoon kway before. Each bowl of mee hoon kway is made to order, with the kway being machine-sliced. The next time I will probably try the soup version!
