Hokkien Mee(Goh Lim Hua Eating House) – Delicious & Fragrant Noodles!
There are two types of Hokkien mee — one is parched like the Sahara, and the other sees fragrant charred noodles sitting in a pool of savoury broth.
The Hokkien mee served at Goh Lim Hua Eating House fits the bill of the latter. The noodles, both bee hoon and yellow noodle, sit in a luscious brown broth. There isn’t a signboard, so look out for a big picture of hokkien mee to locate the stall.
It’s difficult resisting the urge to just scoop a spoonful of piping hot noodles into your mouth, the moment you’re seated comfortably. I suggest that you wait a couple of minutes so that the noodles can soak up more of the broth. Then, squeeze the lime, add an adequate amount of chilli, and mix the noodles well. You’re now in for a treat!
You’ll realise that the noodles are fragrant and have quite a strong wok hei. For $4, you get a generous amount of noodles, pork belly, fresh prawns and a few rings of squid. The ingredients are tender, and not overdone. What I like most about this unassuming dish is the morsels of egg found inside. The lightly charred pieces of egg are flavourful and carry a delicate smoky aroma.
The stall also sells Fried Kway Teow ($3.50), Fried Bee Hoon ($3.50) and Fried Bean Sprout Cockles ($6), but the Hokkien mee is the star!
