Nowadays, when we are talking about mee goreng, we would always link to the one at Bangkok Lane.

But today I am going to review another mee goreng and definitely a good one. This mee goreng sotong is sold at the food court next to Fort Cornwallis at Esplanade.

Business start in the evening. The stall name is Hameed "Pata" Special Mee.

See, a very very generous amount of sotong. The noodle colour is not as red as the one at Bangkok Lane, but it's definitely more spicy than that one. The mee goreng is slighty wet but very fragrant.

The sotong taste sweet and spicy at the first few mouthful. Then it tasted spicy all the way until I finished the noodle. *Sweat*


If you are a sotong lover, you should definitely try this out.

I prefer this one than the one at Bangkok Lane. This is just my personal taste.

    Ya.. the sotong was like 30% of the food. So generous. No wonder it called Mee Sotong.

    The mee goreng is real good! but too many crows bombing there .... hehehe ....

    Opposite got a chinese western food which sell a pretty good hainan mee, fried rice and also prawns platter. I haven't visit them since 1997 ... lol.

    Wow! I have not been there, like for 4 year. The stall is always crowded and have to wait for quite some time.
    You can actually call to order before hand. You could try this number, 0134319384, if they have not changed the number.
