Review: Hui Wei Chilli Ban Mian (Singapore)



Geylang Bahru Food Centre Singapore

Hui Wei Chilli Ban Mian

is a popular stall serving a selection of handmade ban mian and fish soups. Their ban mian is good!


Chilli Ban Mian

The chilli ban mian is their signature dish and is a popular choice with the crowd. This ban mian comes with meatballs, minced meat, a soft boiled egg, ikan bilis and a dollop of chilli paste.

The handmade ban mian noodles is firm and springy. It is tossed in a black sauce seasoning that contains a faint note of sweet. Comes with some vegetables and pork lard. Some nicely flavoured minced meat and crispy ikan bilis are added to the noodles with a dollop of spicy chilli paste.

Served with the ban mian are some meatballs and a soft boiled egg. The meatball is firm and springy with nice meaty and slightly savoury flavours. As for the egg, it has a runny yolk and soft whites.

This serving of chilli ban mian is good! I like it.

Mee Hoon Kueh

This is the soup version of mee hoon kueh. It comes with minced pork balls, prawns, a raw egg, some vegetables and topped with ikan billis and fried shallots.

The minced pork ball is soft and nicely seasoned with meaty and savoury flavours. The prawn is of decent size and is fairly fresh. Ikan bilis is savoury but losing its crisp and getting soft in the soup, and the egg is soft. The mee hoon kueh itself is firm and springy, and handmade in-house. As for the soup, it is very flavourful with a savoury taste.

This mee hoon kueh is very likeable and a good choice too.

Fuzhou Fishball Noodles

Fuzhou fishball noodles is available as well with your choice of noodles. Seen above is with you mian. This bowl of noodles comes with fuzhou fishballs, minced pork balls, a raw egg, ikan bilis and some vegetables.

The fuzhou fishball is firm and springy with a flavourful meat filling inside. The minced pork ball is soft and juicy with nice savoury tastes. The ikan bilis is crispy but getting soft in the soup, and raw egg is soft. The handmade you mian is firm and springy, and the soup is very nicely flavoured.

I like this fuzhou fishball noodles too. Good!

Double Fish Soup

Besides handmade noodles, fish soup is available as well. Fried fish, sliced fish or both, with choice of noodles or own its own. Above is their double fish soup on its own. This bowl of double fish soup comes with both fried fish and sliced fish, with ikan bilis, tofu cubes, bittergoud slices, lettuce, tomato slices and seaweed.

The fried fish is soft and meaty with nice savoury seasoning flavours. The sliced fish is meaty, not exactly smooth, but decent. Tofu is smooth and soft. As for the soup, it is very nicely flavoured.

Personally I like the handmade noodles here more. However, the fish soup is still a rather decent one.
