Introducing the new kid at Parkway Hawker Centre — Mee Sua Geng (面线羹). Opened in mid-October 2020, they have been catching the eye of many with their traditional yet minimalist signboard. There’s also a huge photo of their signature dish, the Oyster Mee Sua, which looks seriously enticing.

The friendly stall assistant would approach you and ask if you’d like to try something new or if you’ll want to get the signature mee sua. He shared that other than the oyster mee sua, he would recommend their Meatball Mee Sua ($5). However, it has been sold out that day by the time I reached, which was about 1:30 pm. As they prepare everything from scratch, they are only able to make 2kg worth of meatball daily due to time constraints. Hence, if you want to try their house-made meatballs,  you got to be an early bird!

We ordered the signature Oyster Mee Sua ($5) and Chicken Cutlet Set ($5.90). The combination inevitably reminded me of my last holiday in Taiwan. Curious me asked Meng, the chef and menu curator if the dishes are created to taste like the ones in Taiwan, and he gave a stern no. He shared that while the dishes might be reminiscent of the typical Taiwanese street food, the type of broth used and the texture of the mee sua is very different from the usual Taiwanese dishes that we love. He added that everything on the menu has been created to suit local tastebuds.

The Oyster Mee Sua, which came in a very generous portion, was topped with black fungus, shimeiji mushroom and some shredded chicken. The oysters were fresh, fat and juicy! It was indeed worth every cent and, in fact, I think that this is a really good deal. The mee sua was firm and not easily broken when scooped up, despite being immersed in the geng (羹, a thick soup or broth).


There is a self-service station where you can help yourself to various condiments. Feel free to take what you think would make the mee sua taste better. For me, it was garlic, chilli and coriander. I added some vinegar directly into the soup too.

We also tried the Chicken Cutlet Set, which comes with a huge piece of chicken cutlet, and a bowl of mee sua with the basic toppings of black fungus and mushroom. You can add on oysters to your mee sua for $2.

You might need to request for them to cut it up as they usually don’t do that. The chicken comes in two flavours — original or with chilli powder. It was not too spicy or salty and the crunch was just right. It is made from chicken breast but it was not dry.

While it is not exactly Taiwanese cuisine, the mee sua and fried chicken might satisfy any cravings you have until you can head to Taiwan for the real deal again.
