    In the heart of Toa Payoh, a culinary gem entices food aficionados with a dish that’s both a feast for the eyes and a dance on the palate. Kim Keat Hokkien Mee, a hawker stall renowned for its unique take on the traditional Hokkien Mee, offers an experience that goes beyond mere dining. With their signature Claypot Hokkien Mee, they’ve turned a familiar local favourite into a gourmet adventure. Here’s the scoop on why this dish has foodies talking and taste buds walking.

    The Showstopper: Claypot Hokkien Mee for Four

    At $22 for a 4-person serving, expectations were high, and Kim Keat Hokkien Mee didn’t just meet them; they leaped over. The unveiling of the claypot is a spectacle in itself, revealing a treasure trove of ingredients nestled within. Topped with eight sizeable chunks of crispy, roasted pork and surrounded by eight crunchy, peeled prawns, the claypot brims with promise.

    A Symphony of Flavours… Almost

    The noodles, a blend of yellow noodles and thick beehoon, fall short of the aromatic heights reached by the toppings. The absence of wok hey and the pronounced lye alkaline taste overshadow the otherwise commendable texture. Despite the generous serving of gravy, its lack of depth and the missing aromatic broth leaves a yearning for what could have been.

    A Carnival of Ingredients

    Beyond the noodles and gravy, the claypot hides delights that salvage the experience. Pork belly strands add a chewy texture, while surprise elements like thick abalone slices and tender squid offer a luxurious twist. Clams scattered throughout the dish contribute a sweet umami touch, rounding off the ensemble.

    Fiery Companion: The Homemade Chili Sauce

    Not to be overlooked, the homemade chili sauce is a revelation. Its spicy, zesty flavour transforms the dish, adding the much-needed punch to elevate the overall experience.

    Verdict: A Mixed Bag of Yummilicious Delights

    Kim Keat Hokkien Mee’s Claypot Hokkien Mee is a paradox—overflowing with top-notch ingredients yet falling slightly short on the noodle front. It’s a dish that’s filling, fun, and definitely worth a try for its novelty and generous portions. The accompanying chili sauce alone is worth the journey to Toa Payoh.
