Yu Mei Mei Shi, Havelock Road

Yu Mei Mei Shi, grouper ee mian

A few people have asked me if I've had the fish soup at Yu Mei Mei Shi (#01-03 Havelock Road Cooked Food Centre, 22A/B Havelock Road). I haven't. But I decided to give them a go for breakfast recently. Here's a bowl of ee mian with chunks of red grouper. Soup's sweet and pretty light tasting. The fish was F³. Fresh, firm and flaking. And it's a whopping $10.

Here's also a call out to those old fogeys who like to comment on how people are willing to shell out dollars for ramen and won't do so for local food.

While arguably a bowl with minimal effort in the form of a thin broth, instant factory bought noodles and fish that only needed scaling and slicing in a cheap rental, I'm pretty sure they'd easily double the charge of such a bowl if they went to town; along with the people who actually use hand made noodles, undergo the arduity of making charshu and the numbing hours of getting a rich broth.
