‘When in doubt, just follow the queues’—this will lead you to Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee when you are at Old Airport Road Food Centre, indubitably one of the heritage gems in Singapore home to loads of tasty hawker fare.
Many would say that if you should consider yourself lucky if you manage to get your hands on a plate of Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee due to their erratic opening hours, and during lunch time, be prepared to queue for up to an hour long!
This humble-looking plate of rice vermicelli, yellow noodles, prawns, squids and eggs tossed in a full-flavoured seafood sauce packs an unexpected amount of flavour.
You’d notice that the fried Hokkien noodles at Nam Sing are drier than what you’d usually get from usual Hokkien noodles stalls, but this is only because the noodles have soaked up the broth, ensuring only the best flavours upon every mouthful.
Every mouthful of the noodles would encompass a strong taste of wok hei, leaving you satisfied and wanting more. Should you be around Old Airport Road Food Centre, Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee is one stall that you should keep your eyes peeled for.
