Located in Changi Village Food Centre is the newly opened Woon Woon Pek Beehoon. Prided with serving bee hoon with lots of seafood and other ingredients, this is one stall that stands out among the sea of Nasi Lemak variants.
If you didn’t come down with a party of 3-4pax, fret not, you can still order a single portion. For those who love their dishes with alot of “liao” / ingredients. Have a field day with adding more “liao”. How about sliced fish for $3, crayfish for $5 or even a whole flower crab at $12. Talk about a “Happy Meal” upsize on seafood crack!
The owners are a 2 young and energetic gentlemen who came from a corporate background and decided to fulfill tummies with lots of seafood and premium ingredients, that wasn’t really offered in the hawker region.
Their prawns were decently sized and they tasted fresh. It was pretty effortless when it came to deshelling the prawns.
The star of the dish was the crayfish, which was subtly crunchy and tender. It did a great job, absorbing the flavour from the soup.
Another star of the dish, were the generously sized fried lard that was scattered across the top of the dish. For the health conscious, you guys are missing out. The crisp lard cubes definitely adds more substance into the seafood broth.
There were countless lalas in the dish, even for the 4 of us, we struggled to finish them all off and we resorted to asking each other to finish up the seafood ingredients.
The freshwater fish didn’t taste or smell fishy but it wasn’t able to pick up the flavour of the broth and tasted rather bland. I did ponder if there was a need to add this fish into the dish.
The bee hoon was yummy and even though owner Javien mentioned that this was meant for 3 pax, for the 4 of us ladies, we struggled to finish this. I would bring about 5-6 ladies along to conquer Mission : Woon Woon Pek Bee Hoon!
Overall : If you are a seafood lover and you like your bee hoon with lots of ingredients. Woon Woon Pek is set to satisfy your cravings. Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along too!
