Nam Sing Hokkien Mee

Similar to the likes of char kway tiao and fried carrot cakes, hokkien mee is another calorie laden food which I usually do not order. Due to the fact that it's very oily and also, I'm allergic to seafood.

But even so, I can't help but finish a whole plate of hokkien mee by myself because it was just so, uberliciously tasty. The taste, the texture... Omph!

Nam Sing Hokkien Mee. And that's one of Makan Sutra's Hawker Legends for you there uh-huh uh-huh. Apperently this uncle has been frying hokkien mee for a few decades now and attributes the good taste of his mee to superior seafood broth. And apperently, he's right!

Chow chow! Adds noodles. Wham! Closes the lid, does it a few more times. Adds in seafood, egg and garlic. Swirls the noodle around and splashes his superior broth in with a flick of his ladle and then turn up the heat and Chap chap chap! Stir frying the noodles in a final chopping motion which looked like karate to me. Oh yeah, I was there to watch the shifu in action.

Well, of course that's not all but I wouldn't be so mean to reveal all his secrets right?
But then again we can always negeociate on a price

Nah, you sly brat...

(Okay lar, actually I don't really know the actual ingredients and sequence also haha!)

Woo! The noodles are well seperated and the wetness is just nice although I would prefer a little more gravy. Oh, the gravy is also not the slimy kind but more to the watery side, but not of the soupy kind. Ahh you'll know what I mean. The taste, however, is spot on! Ummm, the seafood taste is strong and seafood is fresh.

Definately one of the best hokkien mee I've eaten. ;)

Blizzard warnings were issued for parts of Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin as snow socked the states in tandem with wind gusts topping 45 miles (72 kilometers) per hour.
The blizzard -- 10 days before the hit of winter -- took its greatest levy in Minnesota, where as much as two feet (61 centimeters) of snow had fallen in some locations, according to the Nationalistic Weather Service (NWS).
The splendour's largest burg Minneapolis was directed a blanket of white 17 inches (43 cm) broad, the worst snowfall to bat the urban district in more than 19 years and the fifth-biggest on record.
As an with of the simoom's hardness, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport -- a traversing heart with expertness in contending with unclean weather -- was shush down exchange for the maiden point in years.
