Thye Hong Hokkien Mee

This is quite a well known Hokkien Mee,back dated to the famous site at Newton Food Centre.The main branch at Newton is no more in operation. I last tried this hokkien  mee at Wisma,maybe some around 5 years back.It was really quite good then.Recently I had some chance to try out some other branches at few food courts.But all did not taste quite okay for me.Hoping to have some satisfying Thye Hong Hokkien Mee.Here I am trying out at Wisma.
I have always liked the wet version better than the dry version.Here it's really very wet.Unlike many other  Hokkien Mee stalls,Thye Hong use the thick white bee hoon more than the yellow mee,thus, it does not get soggy easily,and do not really need much of a skill with the thick white bee boon covering the soggy yellow mee.

$5.00.Served on a opal leave,there were about 3 prawns,some tiny pieces of cuttlefish.The wok hei did not quite exists.The stock and the noodles did not quite soak in.It did not quite blend well enough.It was like the soup stock and noodles were still quite separated.The chilly was okay.

Overall the Thye Hong Hokkien Noodles, I have known before did not  quite exists.This is quite expected with  transit cooks rushing,in handling the wok.
