Hello everyone! The weekend’s almost over boo! It’s 1155pm as I’m writing this now and I really should get myself to bed, but I felt like blogging so why not.

I wanted to share with you guys a great Hokkien Mee place I know called New Hawa, at Selegie Road. By virtue of its location and late opening hours (ok I checked with the folks at New Hawa and their official closing time is 1130pm but on busy nights they stay open past midnight!) — New Hawa has become the go-to spot for me and my friends whenever we watch plays at the LaSalle College For The Arts.

New Hawa - 213 Selegie

New Hawa itself is actually at the corner of the coffeeshop, you can see the ‘Awa Rest’ just peeking out between the pillars!

I’ll put the menu at the end of this post since there are so many pages, so for now let’s look at the food itself. Here is the Hokkien Mee (S$6) that I like to have:

New Hawa - Hokkien Mee

Hokkien Prawn Mee (S$6) – 10/10

Truly guys, this is the best halal Hokkien Mee I’ve ever had!! It’s always so basah (wet) and freakin’ tasty, the gravy is savoury af (astaghfirullah what’s this af all) and to die for! As you can see in the picture, it’s pretty spartan with just the 2 prawns and with no squid unlike Puncak’s version, or fishcake unlike Cahaya’s version. Don’t be fooled though, what it lacks in fancy ingredients, it more than makes up for with taste and texture. Just typing about it and thinking about that gravy is making me drool ugh. Please always order this. 10/10

I didn’t really taste the other stuff, but I will leave you with a couple of pictures of my friends’ orders so you have an idea what they’ll look like.

Here is the Tomyam Fried Beehoon (S$6.50):
