Craying for a fish for lunch?

'Hor Fun', is a type of noodle made from rice. It can be found in delicacies like 'Hor Fun', Ipoh 'Hor Fun', etc. Just for the dish 'Hor Fun' alone, there were different ways in preparing it. In the past, you can only get 'Hor Fun' that comes with vegetables, seafood and clear soup. However, as time goes by you can get 'Stirred fried Hor Fun', 'Beef Hor Fun', 'Slice Fish Hor Fun', etc... One of my favourite would be 'Stirred fried Sambal Hor Fun'. :P As for today let me introduce to you a different kind of 'Hor Fun' that you can only get during lunch hours.


'Crayfish Ipoh Sah Hor Fun' with regular Crayfish.
If I'm not mistaken, you can get a plate of 'Ipoh Sah Hor Fun' that comes with
different sizes of crayfish. If you are there pretty early or if you are
lucky enough, there will be chances that you can get a plate of 'Ipoh Hor Fun'
with the biggest crayfish. For the crayfish, it would most likely be a contest
of the survival of the weakest, as for us, this would be a contest of the
survival of the fittest... :P

Taste wise, I don't really like the 'Hor Fun' of this store. The taste
of the 'Hor Fun', prawns and the vegetables were pretty normal but the
Crayfish is fantastic. (Probably the stall owner is trying to use a
normal plate of 'Ipoh Sah Hor Fun' as a decoy to make the Crayfish
stand out even much more. Or am I thinking too much? :P)
Either way, the crayfish is of a high standard and I personally felt
that the taste and the texture of the Crayfish is much better than some
of the reputable restaurants in Singapore. On top of the points listed
in the above, I'm not sure how did they prepare the crayfish but its
pretty easy to pull out the flesh of the crayfish using a spoon and a
pair of chopsticks and for the price (S$6.50) that I have paid for this,
it's definitely worth going back again. XD
(Too bad they don't serve dishes that comes with the crayfish only...
Else I would only go for the crayfish only. :P)

So where is the stall located?
The name of the stall would be 'Tuck Kee (Ipoh)' Sah Hor Fun.
It is located on level 2 of 'Hong Lim Market Food Centre'.

  • Finding seats at 'Hong Lim Market Food Centre' during lunch hours can be a challenge.
  • The queue leading out of this stall can be quite hectic. (Survival of the fittest rule applies here, if you are not fast enough you might ended up queueing for more than 20 minutes for the regular crayfish...)
  • The store is closed on Sundays and if I'm not mistaken, the normal operating hours are from 11am to 3pm daily.
