Yee Cheong Yuen Noodle Restaurant
31 Lorong Liput, Holland Village


I was keen to try out Yee Cheong Yuen Noodle Restaurant as I’d heard they did a fab Ipoh hor fun, and were around the Holland Village area for yonks. We were there with et all, and she pointed out that it wasn’t very popular nowadays as the quality had gone down etc, and that they’d shrunk their premises and yet were pretty empty. It definitely was surprising that, despite being right smack on lunch hour, only a handful of tables were filled.

I think the main reason they aren’t as popular now is due to the prices. It’s a very simple place, but the set was around $20 for 2 people. That’s really expensive compared to food court prices (that always sell the same Ipoh hor fun)!! They can’t compete with the hawker food prices opposite the road from them, and they’re not pretty/cool enough to compete with the funkier expensive places next to the.

Food-wise, I thought the food as nice but nothing spectacular. Just average. The Ipoh noodles were lovely and silky, and the gravy was smooth and tasty without being too salty. Apart from that, however, everything else was just bang-on average and okay. The food is definitely not bad, but considering all the tasty cheap food outside, I’d rather get that and pay less than half the price!
