*Recently, I went to Seng Kee for dinner and found that they have shifted the seating area to the corner. We ordered the Mee Sua of different bowl sizes (small - S$7 and big - S$9). They have increased their prices!

When they served us our order, the small and big bowls are of similar bowl size except for the very slight increase of quantity in the meat and soup.

*Last visited in February 2014.
