Effing Lard-Rich Hokkien Mee

Rainy morning. Makan buddy. Taxi. Work. Lunch. Ewan recommended me this stall in Toa Payoh.

This Hokkien Mee ($4 for medium size) is seriously not for the faint-hearted. It was chock-full of pork lard! This gave this noodle dish a very pleasantly robust taste and not to mention an alluring aroma. The noodles were soft, nicely moist and really tasty, being cooked with a stock that was infused with seafood flavour. A squeeze of lime perked up the dish a notch further.

I enjoyed the pieces of lard with their crispy edges. Scarily, it was so shiok lah!
