Chef Goo Red Sea Prawns Fried Hokkien Mee, Alexandra Village Food Centre

So I read that the proprietor of Red Sea Prawns Fried Hokkien Mee (#01-13 Alexandra Village Food Centre, 120 Bukit Merah Lane 1) used to be a limousine driver and had in mid life taken a sharp off the road turn into a kitchen - cooking Hokkien mee, pao fan and fried rice. Cool. The Hokkien mee was not bad but I'm not an expert here. I thought the flavour from this stock struck more balance between the pork and the crustacean taste. I'm guessing that most people in general go for a stronger crustacean flavour. But it works. Especially with a squeeze of lime and their sambal.

There's a crab meat fried rice on their menu. Pretty competent local fried rice and as testimony of the level of skill used, the rice was lightly scorched and had very little residual oil left on the plate. No much smokiness though but quite tasty with the chunks of crab meat and again, their sambal added to it. Speaking of sambal, theirs had a flavour profile that was quite similar to Chinatown Fried Rice.
