Seletar Sheng Mian & Mian Fen Guo – Long Queue For Mee Hoon Kueh at Ang Mo Kio
How many times have I eaten at Seletar Sheng Mian • Mian Fen Guo (实里达生面·面粉粿)? Minimum once a week ever since they open in Kebun Baru Food Centre about 5 years ago. They used to be at the defunct Seletar Food Centre before the elder brother opens a stall in Toa Payoh Lorong 8 and the younger one at Kebun Baru Food Centre. This is our favourite lunch for my grandfather and I. The queue is long but I really don’t mind queuing for it just to get two bowls of soup ban mian and mee hoon kueh. How time flies, I can still remember them serving two small prawns initially, to one prawn and now one bigger size prawns.
The soup is boiled with pork bones and ikan bilis, which is very sweet. For a $3 bowl of Sheng Mian Soup, you can one super fresh prawns, minced meat, pork, vegetables and egg! When cooked together, the flour from the Sheng Mian actually makes the soup thicker. I have grown to love their mee hoon kueh more because they hand-pull the dough into the soup while many other mee hoon kueh stalls have already been using machines to make it. The minced pork in the soup makes it extra tasty and I can’t help it but to finish the bowl everytime when I am there. It is also very popular among the elderly as they are cheap and delicious!
Recently, I have grown to like the dry version where the owner will mix the sauces and pour it to the kueh or noodles after they cook it. I didn’t think very highly of it but when the chilli sauce is mixed with my mee hoon kueh, you get that umami flavour that is irresistible. Not much heat for the chilli, but the savoury sauce is pretty tasty. Sprinkling some fried shallots and crispy ikan bilis makes it even better. I suggest you add another 50 cents for extra ikan bilis.
