Gim Chew Fried Hokkien Noodle (锦州炒福建面) – Bedok, Singapore


Have been to Bedok (east side of Singapore for my overseas readers) quite frequently lately and I haven’t really sit down and write about the food here actually. I mean apart from the well known Bedok Chui Kueh (Steam flour cakes), seriously haven’t ventured around this old food centre. As there are major renovations going on right now, this old facility will be demolished soon and all the hawkers will be moving to a brand new air-conditioned food centre, along the same row where Sheng Siong is. Definitely can’t wait for the new place, so that I don’t perspire while eating! ;P

Anyways came across this stall which was recommended by my colleague who is living in Bedok for the longest time. So I ordered the $4 only as I was pretty hungry. The aunty is a pretty chatty and friendly lady. Don’t mind the poor lighting as the place is pretty dark at the back.

The stall
Looks plain right? The secret is in the broth that is soaked up in the noodles and the sambal chilli is pretty awesome! Great companion for the noodles!

Rating: 5/5. For the taste, the service, the value for money.

Taste: Yummy. The prawn broth is soaked up in the noodles and the sambal chilli is just awesome. Should have asked for more sambal though! Non-Halal.

Portion: Average.

Service: A very friendly aunty and likes to joke.

Ambience. N.A.

Price: $4.00.

RTE: Yes!

Location: #01-62 Bedok Interchange Food Centre.

This place is sort of like a make shift hawker centre and got its name from the big trees around the area. Very messy place with movable tables and chairs all over the place. That’s why its popular with locals mainly and at one glance, you might wanna give this place a miss. But I tried… and I love it. That’s why I’m writing about this place. The original place that started is on the right side if you’re facing the food place… cos there’s another competitor came up with the exact same food offerings on the left side.

See for yourself... messy right? But a lot of good food.
Some of the highly recommend drinks and food
Iced Red Bean... awesome drink for RM$2.50
Iced Fruit Drink RM$3.50. This one has a lot of different kinds of fruits... damn good
Poh Piah... Soso only and they spread a layer of chilli suace on the outer skin... weird..
The chicken here is actually quite good...
The Fried Stuff (Zar Ye) here is the best seller... go choose what you want and then choose the type of noodles you want.
Curry hor fun... very nice.

Rating: 5/5. Many choices.

Taste: Very nice and tasty. Can try the Char Kway Teow also to the left side of the food place. Keeps frying non-stop… must be quite good.

Portion: Above average.

Price: Generally very affordable.

RTE: Yes!!!

Location: Just tell cab driver 大树脚 (Dai Xu Keok)  in Cantonese.
