Heng Kee Curry Chicken Bee Hoon Mee 531A Upper Cross St #01-58, Hong Lim Mkt & Food Ctr (Map) 10.30am – 3.30pm Sun

They are one of the old names in the business and it was started by the late patriarch. Mother and son carried on where he left off and nothing has changed. Their own-made curry paste takes two days to make at a separate little central kitchen and rested, before it is used. The dried chilli roastiness in the curry is so distinct, it’s one reason why die-hard regulars swear by it. They practically know everyone in the long queue each day. Trivia: they are up and about at the stall by 3am each business day to prep and poach the chickens (using an archaic dip and dunk method and it takes about 100 dips per fowl), fry the curry paste, cut the greens, puff tofu, parboil the potatoes plus a ton of little mise en place work, just so they can be ready by 10 am… ridi culous. But they are local food heroes in so many ways.
