My Grandparents’ Nam Seng Noodles & Fried Rice Stall.

I am so proud of my grandma and late grandpa for many reasons. One of the reasons is their Nam Seng Noodles & Fried Rice food stall that has been around for almost 40 years. They cook and sell delicious Chinese Fried Rice, Wanton Mee, Venison (deer meat) Hor Fun, etc. See a photo of their food menu below.

Numerous locations

This is their most current address, as seen in the photo above. Their first stall location (which made them famous) was at a hawker centre which was formerly beside Singapore’s Stamford Road National Library. The gorgeous old library is now demolished, which is a huge waste!

My grandparents moved to 33 Pekin St, Far East Square Food Meseum after that. They then moved again to Market Street briefly, and now they are operating at 25 China Street, #01-01 Far East Square. It is along the same stretch as Ya Kun Kaya Toast, right at the other end (where Don Pie used to be). Don Pie is now opposite Nam Seng Noodles & Fried Rice.

Here are some photos I took when I visited my grandma at the stall with my friends last Wednesday afternoon.

A photo of my grandparents and the menu at the stall.

Delicious Venison Hor Fun, they no longer sell the beef version of this. My grandma made my three friends and I a huge plate, I mean really huge.

The best wanton ever, and I am not saying this because it is my grandma’s stall. Eat it to believe it.🙂

My friends and I visited the stall because we happened to be in the area. We had lunch just a couple of hours ago before the visit, so we ordered only two dishes to share. However, we managed to finish up everything. I wish I had more room in my tummy for their Wanton Mee – the fresh Char Siu and homemade chilli in the dish is really tasty.😛

Here are some interesting links. (Note: This blog post has the most updated address of Nam Seng Noodles & Fried Rice stall)

    oh my goodness…your grandparents own Nam Seng? I literally grew up eating their wanton mee and hor fun at the library! I hardly visit them ever since they moved.=(
    But your post has really stirred up fond memories of the place and food…i hope you have taken down the recipes and maybe one day, you can take over and continue their legacy!=)
