Popular Michelin-Recommended Hokkien Mee At Toa Payoh
Operating since 1968, Come Daily continues to be a popular go-to spot among the Toa Payoh residents, with waiting times usually up to an hour. Preparation takes a minimum of three hours daily, with a three-man team being required to ensure they can open promptly.
Dishing out only one item, their Hokkien Mee is served at $5, $8, and $10, with the addition of extra ingredients going for an extra $2.
Comforting And Tasty Hokkien Mee
The Hokkien Mee ($5) is served perfectly cooked, leaning towards the wetter version. Each bite of the noodles is greeted with a delightful chewiness, with a good amount of prawn flavour coming through. Well balanced with the the wok hei, it might however not appeal to those looking for the distinct smokiness from the dish as it is on the lighter side.
Their sambal chilli is slightly sweet, adding a pleasant layer of umami and a delightful kick of heat to the noodles. While it packs a punch, it is not till the point where you feel the need to reach for a cup of water. Additionally, its creaminess adds a nice textural contrast to the noodles. Bringing you a taste of comfort with each bite, you can wolf down the entire plate without feeling jelak at all.
Here’s a tip, be sure to request their pork lard for that extra crunch and delicious guilt to your noodles! Elevating each bite with an extra layer of crispiness and umami, we highly recommend pairing it with your hokkien mee.
While they did not skimp out on the eggs, the portion of prawns and squid was pretty disappointing. They sadly do not serve pork belly as well, which some might consider a staple in Hokkien Mee. For those looking for a substantial serving of seafood, it is recommended to top up the extra $2.
