Local noodle chain specializing in handmade noodles – namely you mian (thin noodles), ban mian (flat noodles) and mee hoon kway (hand-torn noodles). He Jia Huan’s selection include Mee Hoon Kway ($4), Sliced Clams Ban Mee ($6.50), as well as the fried U-Mee ($4) and E-Mee ($4). All but the Tom Yam Ban Mee ($4.50) comes in either soup or dry version, topped with crispy ikan bilis, minced pork and vegetables.
He Jia Huan’s dry mee hoon kway (or ban mian) features a homemade chilli sauce (paste) that’s based on dried shrimp and sambal belachan (shrimp paste) instead of the regular orange type we often see, while the soup versions see the addition of aromatic sesame oil and Chinese wine.
FYI, the Toa Payoh outlet opens till 3 am everyday.
