Swee Guan Hokkien Mee
Filed in best hokkien mee | February 19, 2020
Swee Guan Hokkien Mee is the original stall of Geylang Lor 29 Fried Hokkien Mee which was started in 1968. The name was changed to avoid confusion and to differentiate it from Geylang Lor 29 at East Coast which is run by the owner’s brother. Over the years, loyal patrons have been flocking to this hokkien mee stall for its original recipe which has remained unchanged after more than 50 years in the business.
What are so special
- Traditional cooking method: Swee Guan Hokkien Mee uses the traditional cooking method of frying all the ingredients above charcoal fire. This is evident in the “wok hei”, hint of smoky flavor as you bite into the noodles.
- Thick yellow noodles: Swee Guan Hokkien Mee uses more of the thick yellow noodles than the finer bee hoon noodles. This gives the dish a sticky texture as the noodles absorb most of the gravy.
- Large prawns and squid slices: The hokkien mee is served with a generous helping of prawns and squid. The prawns are already peeled so it is more convenient for customers who don’t want to bother with peeling the prawns while eating.
