Recently, there were so much Johor Food flashing out in my friends and my social media pages that we could not resist any further, thus this is why we were here! We searched through the place for handmade noodle and was a tad lost due to the address given, nevertheless we found the place eventually.
O Master Q is located along the same stretch as our frequent visit massage place, Bangkok Spa.
Interior was rustic, just like any coffeeshop of Singapore in the 1980s with its flooring tiled up by 1 x 1 cm square tiles in alternating colors (Greyish blue and White).
The stall is located at a prominent spot, right in front of the coffeeshop at one corner with bowls neatly stack and a refrigerator behind its shelfing. Besides the hand made Mee Hoon Kueh, there are other noodles for your choices.
Mee Hoon Kueh Stall with Bowls Neatly Stacked
Take a look at the master pulling off the Mee Hoon Kueh from the dough and into the pot of broth under the fire.
Cooking in Action
Each bowl was cooked individually and takes about 3 - 5 minutes. The main use of ingredients is fried crispy Ikan Billis. The soup version of Mee Hoon Kueh tasted pretty normal to me with a home cook taste.
Mee Hoon Kueh Soup - RM 7
Black fungus are good for health and they are also added as one of the ingredients. I bet this is the first time I ever had Mee Hoon Kueh with meat ball in it.
Dried version is most preferred by the diners from our observations. Mee Hoon Kueh was served in a mixture of sweet black sauce and sesame oil with ingredients slightly different from the soup version. It was topped with generous amount of fried Ikan billis, fried Wanton Skin, cut black fungus,meat ball, "Mani" Vegetables, Kang Kong and egg.
Mee Hoon Kueh Dry- RM 7
While it may not be that fantastic till we will purposely make our way back again, I will say they are still worth the try for their traditional, old-school Malaysian style kind of noodle and a decent broth.
Among all ingredients, I find that they could have omitted the minced meat and as a minced meat lover, I'm kind of disappointed here.
On a side note, some of the websites mentioned that they open at 11 am but when I was there during that time, staff of the same coffeshop told me that handmade noodle stall will open about 12 pm. Since its located near Bangkok Spa, those who feel hungry before or after their session can take a chance to visit O Master Q Mee Hoon Kueh since its a stone throw away.https://www.umakemehungry.com/2019/09/o-master-q.html
