Named a hawker legend by Makansutra in 2005, Mr Ng Hock Wah founded Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee when he was 17. Originally located in Hougang, the current stall at the newly renovated Old Airport Road Food Centre has been winning numerous accolades from food critics in Singapore.
The fried Hokkien noodles served here is the dry version, with the yellow and rice noodles absorbing the prawn and anchovy stock, fried with prawns and squid. Mr Ng also insists on serving it with cut red chilli instead of the usual Sambal chilli paste. Not the least bit greasy, this dish is light and savoury, leaving a lasting impression.
