Hawker Terence "Little Brother" Chee may only have opened his stall in March 2012, but his experience frying this dish dates back to 2005.
.
His signature 'wet' rendition has noodles tossed with fluffy egg, crisp spring onions, prawn shell and pork bone stock, sitting soft in ample gravy. Carries robust smoky grainy eggy sweet savoury flavour, with the aroma of wok hei / breath of the wok that perfumes the air and attracts attention.
.
The squeeze of lime juice lends a zesty tangy sour zing, while strips of tender pork belly lend meaty salty savoury flavour.
.
The chunks of bouncy squid and crunchy deshelled prawns carry sweet savoury flavour. A bright chili mixes in well with a sour spicy kick, yum.

Expanding quickly since opening in October 2022, with 7 stalls across Singapore at present, this brand serves traditional Hokkien dishes with a premium gourmet flair.
.
This shows in quality. On good days, their 'wet' rendition has soft gooey noodles soaked in gravy, wispy egg, crisp bean sprouts, crisp spring onions, and bursting with grainy vegetal sweet savoury eggy flavour, but at other times, you get distinct alkaline sour 'lye water' notes.
.
The ingredients are always fresh and premium though. Garnishes of succulent tender fatty lean Iberico pork belly with meaty salty savoury flavour, thick bouncy squid rings and juicy crunchy deshelled prawns, both with sweet savoury flavour.
.
Nuggets of crisp pork lard lend a yummy layer, while a drizzle of lime juice cuts through with zesty tangy sour flavour.

This stall makes the list for serving over 20 years or more, and their 'wet' style is rather nostalgic for me.
.
Their noodles are cut short, soft and slippery, tossed with fluffy egg and crisp bean sprouts, soaked with gravy for mild grainy sweet savoury salty eggy flavour.
.
The tender pork belly is nicely fatty with succulent meaty savoury salty flavour, while both squid chunks and deshelled prawn are tender springy with sweet savoury flavour.
.
Some spring onions lend vegetal herbal sweet flavour, and a drizzle of lime juice lends zesty tangy sour notes. Less wok hei / breath of the wok, and the pork lard alternates limp and crisp.

There's a rather strict and orderly queue system in place at this stall, which has been serving its delicious 'wet' rendition for over 20 years or more.
.
Known for being a supper spot, they still draw queues during the day for their soft gooey noodles tossed with fluffy egg and crisp bean sprouts, soaking up the gravy and carrying smoky grainy savoury sweet salty eggy flavour.
.
The tender pork belly strips are meaty savoury salty in taste, while springy squid chunks and crunchy deshelled prawns both lend sweet savoury flavour. Some lime juice for a touch of tangy zesty sour notes.
.
Regulars love how the spicy savoury flavours in the sharp sambal belachan lend a fiery kick. Together with their wok hei / breath of the wok, it makes for an addictive plate.

Since 1963, fans of Ng Hock Wah signature 'dry' rendition queue for up to 45 minutes - though with the introduction of digital buzzing, the lines are now invisible.
.
Their legacy stretches back to hawker legend Ng Tong, who together with brother Ng Seng, created the Singaporean style version of this dish.
.
Each batch of long cylindrical yellow egg noodles and thin bee hoon / rice vermicelli noodles have fully absorbed the pork and prawn stock, and tossed with chicken egg, result in a soft chew with lovely smoky grainy eggy sweet salty savoury flavour.
.
The garnishes of bouncy squid and crunchy deshelled prawns lend body, and smoky sweet savoury flavour. Balanced with good wok hei / breath of the wok.

A squeeze of lime juice and cut red chili in soy sauce lend zesty tangy sour salty spicy flavour, cutting through with a zing.

Serving since the 1980s and having attained the Michelin Bib Gourmand award over the last 7 consecutive years, 3rd-generation owner Manfred Lim carries on much like before.
.
Their rendition tends towards balanced, leaning more to 'wet'. A robust prawn and pork stock infuses the large portion of noodles, gooey soft chewy (almost al-dente) with grainy savoury salty flavour, but has less wok hei / breath of the wok.
.
Garnished with soft chicken egg, crisp bean sprouts, springy squid, bouncy fish cake, and crunchy deshelled prawns, combining for a vegetal eggy sweet savoury salty flavour. Finished with lime juice for a zesty sour tangy touch.
.
Expect to queue around 20 minutes.

So named because of their Hainanese heritage, this stall serves a distinct 'dry' rendition that has been enjoyed by many for over 30 years.
.
Here, the robust prawn and pork stock is fully absorbed by each fresh batch of long cylindrical yellow egg noodles and thin bee hoon / rice vermicelli noodles, carefully tossed with crisp bean sprouts and wispy egg.
.
Carries an appetizing smoky grainy savoury salty sweet eggy flavour. No added sliced pork though.
.
Chunks of crunchy deshelled prawns and bouncy squid have also taken on the wok hei / breath of the wok, bursting with smoky sweet savoury flavour.
.
The kicker is the duo of chili - the savoury salty spice flavours of the sambal belachan, and the sharp spicy burn of the bird's eye chili / chili padi.

Possibly the newest contender, having only opened in August 2019 to much acclaim.
.
Former Les Amis sous chef Xavier Neo and wife Alice Lai brew their stock of garlic-fried prawn heads and pork bones for over 3 hours, utilising a culinary fine-dining technique, resulting in a heady gravy in a 'wet' style.
.
The noodles, tossed with wispy chicken egg, crisp bean sprouts, and crisp spring onions, soak in some of that delicious gravy, resulting in a smoky grainy savoury salty sweet eggy flavour and a soft smooth texture.
.
Chunks of bouncy squid and crunchy wild-caught grey prawns lend sweet savoury flavour, while silvers of tender pork belly lend meaty salty savoury flavour. A drizzle of lime juice for added zesty tangy sour notes to complete.

The more frequented of the stalls carrying on the legacy of hawker brothers Alex See and See Hock Siong, this is run by Alex's younger daughter Penny See and husband Qin Sheng, with mum Grace supporting.
.
Compared to her elder sister's stall, there are slight variations. Their rendition is rather balanced, leaning towards 'wet'. Continually stir-fried over a roaring charcoal fire for up to 30 minutes, the yellow egg noodles and rice vermicelli are tossed with egg, pork lard, and a pork and prawn stock broth gradually infused.
.
This results in a soft gooey texture, with robust smoky grainy savoury salty sweet eggy flavour.
.
There's crunchy deshelled prawns and bouncy squid, bursting with sweet savoury flavour. An edge over her sister's version is the addition of fresh crisp spring onions, lending vegetal herbal sweet flavour.
.
A drizzle of lime juice lends bright tangy zesty sour flavour, while a house secret-recipe sambal belachan lends a punchy but not overwhelming savoury salty spicy flavour.

This stall carries on the legacy of hawker brothers Alex See and See Hock Siong, being run by Alex's oldest daughter, with the family recipe stretching back to the 1960s.
.
They've styled themselves as '3rd-generation' as the recipe has been handed down from their grandfather (Alex's dad), and are related to the similarly named stall (manned by younger sister Penny See).
.
