    What sets Ipoh Hor Fun apart from the bastardised version lies in the Sar Hor Fun (or 沙河粉). Local-produce Hor Fun somehow just doesn’t seem to meet the mark in terms of smoothness and silkiness factor. This is where Teck Kee steps in to bridge the gap.

    Located just 2 stalls away from Ah Kow’s Mushroom Minced Pork Mee, it is interesting to see which among the two has a longer snaking queue during lunch time, even though a small serving of Teck Kee’s Crayfish Hor Fun comes knocking at $5 per plate, $6.50 for medium and $9.50 for large – surely there must be good reasons! I dare say Teck Kee's rice noodles is probably the closest you can get in terms of texture – It’s so smooth that it slips down the throat easily! I had the medium serving (not very filling though) and what came with it was a pretty good size Crayfish.

    The flesh was firm and meaty but then again that’s all that is to it. Instead I thought the Big Prawns were much sweeter and less “rubbery” compared to the crayfish.

    The gravy sauce was kinda disappointing though – I feel that it is not robust enough to go with the already plain Hor Fun.

    Perhaps one is meant to dip the noodles and ingredients in the chilli sauce for a stronger flavour but I would probably be back for them only when I have a craving for smooth Ipoh Hor Fun.

    This is probably the Best Sar Hor Fun around in Singapore, but gravy was disappointing. I also find it to be expensive for hawker standard, and serving wasn't big.

    The crayfish hor fun was recommended to me by some former-colleagues. Located at Hong Lim food centre 2nd floor, the store is at the corner area, but food lovers still can find the area with ease.

    Coming in sizes of $3.5, $4, and $5, I had the smallest version which offers a small crayfish and some small prawns. My pals had the bigger price tags one, which definitely comes with bigger crayfish and more prawns.

    I found the hor fun to be quite all right, then again i'm not really a big fan of hor fun. The crayfish was quite good given the price, if you wanna the real taste i guess the $5 portion is the one to go for.

      Joined the snaking queues at Hong Lim for a taste of one of the best crayfish hor fun in Singapore. The countless awards that are plastered all over the stall are a testament to that.

      $5 gets you a decent size plate of hor fun with 2 halves of crayfish and another 2 halves of a relatively big prawn. The hor fun was so silky and smooth that it slithered down my throat with much ease. The prawns and crayfish, though fresh, were not as sweet as I would have liked them to be. But then again, its $5 we are talking about and its more than worth it. The gravy only had a tinge of the 5 spices taste, which was a nice change from the heavily infused ones that I've tried before. If you intend to go on a weekday, my advice would be to go before 12pm, before the lunch crowd comes in.
