Kim Keat Hokkien Mee – worth the hype?

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

When I did a search for Best Hokkien Mee in Singapore, quite a few food bloggers recommended Kim Keat Hokkien Mee.

Exactly what is so special about Kim Keat Hokkien Mee?

1) Served it in a piping hot claypot instead of a plate
2) Ingredients include roasted pork, clams and huge prawns, which is a little different from the usual Hokkien Mees

The coffee shop was packed when we got there. We were told to wait at least for 30 minutes before our table will be served.

Online reviews said that the $10 portion is good for 2-3 to share so we got the $15 portion to share between the 3 of us since two of us are bigger eaters. When it arrived… looks and smell wise scored pretty high on my point chart!

For the taste test.. To be very honest, flavors were quite good but not extremely nice like what people made it out to be. The stock was flavorful, which I guess is due to the seafood and roasted meat mixed into the regular gravy.

What we didn’t fancy was that the portion was way too small!! We took a portion each into our small bowl and there wasn’t very much left in the claypot. For $5 each, the portion I ate was probably 1/3 of a normal $3 Hokkien Mee.

Great to have finally tried this out, but I wouldn’t go back all the way and wait for so long for this again.
