Tang Kay Kee Fish Head Bee Hoon – Serving Hipster Hawker Food For Lunch

Tang Kay Kee Fish Head Bee Hoon, well known for their fish head bee hoon (duh) and zi char dishes is only opened for dinner but the 2 next generation hawkers behind this stall decided to take it to the next level by catering to the lunch time crowd as well. You can find 3 of their star dishes on their menu – hor fun, mui fan and fried rice; and some sides to go along as well if you are gamed for a hearty lunch. The stall stands out in every way, adding touches of what you are familiar with – Instagram, Facebook, marbled posters on easels and loyalty cards so that you keep coming back to collect those chops

The 4th-generation hawker, Debbie took the wok that day, whipping up delicious charred horfun and adding on onsen egg and batter enoki mushrooms for the finishing touches

Hor Fun $5

The hor fun is every bit you would imagine with a strong wok hei taste, springy and slightly salty. Drenched in a thick and tasty stock broth and filled with generous ingredients of pork and fish slices, it is definitely a hearty bowl of stir fry hor fun

But add in an onsen egg and battered enoki mushrooms, this hor fun carries a mixture of modern and traditional flair. I particularly love the enoki mushrooms which was deep fried to a nice golden brown and yet you can still taste the beautiful mushroom in it. It was simply addictive!
