I was first brought to this place about 7 years back by a colleague as this is actually his dad’s shop. Before this, my version of Hakka Noodle is always those that is like Maggi mee, with some pork mince and a few slices of BBQ pork, until I was introduced to the Original Hakka Noodle.
Chong Ko Hakka Noodle is just a block away from the famous Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee and it’s always recommended to come early to avoid the crowd as the place does gets busy during lunch time.

The Original Hakka Mee at it’s full glory! Despite having a plain looking presentation, it’s actually very flavourful. The mee is more chewy in nature, which separates it out from all the other Hakka Mee that I’ve eaten before. It’s funny because Hakka Mee is the only mee that is actually served like the Kolo mee, but without the dark soya sauce, oyster sauce and soya sauce. It’s also not soupy either despite being white in appearance.
The Fine Noodle is also very different from the typical Wan Tan Mee. Despite what kind of mee that we choose, the appearance is always the same. Lots of minced meat in a light soup base.
All mee is served with a bowl of fish ball/meat ball depending on your preference.
I’m not a fish ball person so I went with pork balls instead.
Also worth to mention is their very special chilli sauce. It’s not really spicy but it definitely provide a better taste while eating the Hakka noodles. There are some customers which are more extreme where they will pour all the chilli sauce onto the bowl of noodles, it’s all depending on one’s preference.

It’s definitely a very nice place for breakfast or lunch and the price is quite reasonable too. Give it a try, it’s something that is out of the normal mee.
