@jiak_song star attraction is supposed to be their handmade noodles, but as toothsome as those noods are, they simply can’t hold a candle to their tom yum broth. The Tom Yum Mee Hoon Kway ($5.80 nett) is a big bowl with lots of charmingly chewy mee hoon kway (flat hand torn noodles), slices of poached fish & minced pork, but all of that are just witnesses to the glory of the terrific tom yum soup.⠀

Jiak Song’s tom yum takes the ubiquitous Thai spicy soup and amps every attribute up to eleven. It’s sumptuously salty, satisfyingly sour and most importantly of all, the spice is violent enough to ignite a wildfire on your tongue. This stellar spicy soup flavours every single ingredient in the bowl, and it’ll spice up your day too. For under six bucks, this banging bowl of tom yum noodles offers absolutely unparalleled value.

It looks plain but it’s truly signature! With an egg dropped in and crispy ikan bilis, nutritious meal indeed!

Instead of the Ban Mian, I chose Mee
Hoon Kueh and it wasn’t disappointing. 1st time to try chilli MHK! Love it! A tat salty overall but still worth waiting for. Cash payment only - $5.50

Ban Mian is a pretty common noodle variant in Singapore, and @jiak_song is probably one of the more prominent ban mian merchants. Apparently it’s a business started by a former Masterchef Singapore finalist, so there’s an expectation of excellence even before your first bite into these noodles.⠀

Jiak Song does live up to its name, fortunately for us consumers. They primarily pride themselves on Mee Hoon Kway, and they have offerings as exotic as Mala Ban Mian and Tom Yum. However, I decided on a simple bowl of Braised Pork Belly with Minced Pork Ban Mian for just $5.50, and I added pork slices on for an extra buck because it’s always bulkingszn. My noodles are simple, but they sure are satisfying.⠀

All the noodles are handmade, so you can look forward to toothsome, slightly softer than normal noods that still retain a sprightly spring. The noodles are coated in a savoury soya sauce, and its savouriness is sufficiently satisfying. Not only does the sauce flavour the noodles, it also powers the minced pork & sliced pork quite adequately. The braised pork belly was brilliant, with a tremendous tenderness that required minimal chewing and maximal flavour instilled into the fatty cut of pork.⠀

Some days you just feel weary of everything, even food, and your hunger demands satisfaction but your appetite is absent. Jiak Song Mee Hoon Kway’s noodles are the perfect remedy for those dreary days, capable of filling your stomach and comforting your soul in one bowl.

Tried the takeaway version of this and was glad they separate the mee hoon kueh from the soup! Soup was interesting: there was a distinct wok hei taste. Unfortunately, it was also pretty oily and there’s not much besides the smoky note. So while it was initially a pleasant change from the usual soup, I got tired of it after a while.

The mee hoon kueh was decent, similar to the ones that I have in Johor.

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!
