However, there is a place that serve great Hokkien Mee with air conditioning, “Tua Wa Kong” aka Big Bowl which situated at 8 Row serving only Hokkien Mee and they are specialist is making dry Hokkien Mee. One big bowl of great taste Hokkien Mee.
Tua Wa Kong practice modern style of self-order system where customer walk in and place their order themselves. Immediately after walk into the restaurant on your left is the simple 1, 2, 3 step, first you choose to either dry or soup then prawn or meat follow by choosing one of the four different type of egg. Just that simple.
