This stall is a well-known fixture of the Chinatown area hawker foodscape. It originated from Outram Park (hence the name of the stall) and only moved to Hong Lim when the Government decides to pull down the building it was housed in at Outram Park.
While the food isn’t exceptional (how a simple dish like black-soya-sauced noodles could be is left to your imagination:), the combination of well-prepared ingredients (like garlic, black sauce, cockles, etc.), decent prices (min S$2) and efficient service has kept this stall popular over the years. Expect to wait half an hour or more during peak lunch hours when the queue lengthens.
If you love cockles, be sure to ask for S$1 extra of cockles. You’ll see your plate of fried kway teow covered in cockles.
