When it comes to comfort breakfast food, nothing makes me more nostalgic than a plate of chee cheong fun. But nowadays, it’s so hard to find a plate of freshly made chee cheong fun in coffee shops and hawker centres — pre-made ones are just not the same. Fortunately, that’s where Chef Wei HK Cheong Fun comes in.

Opened just a few months ago, this stall sells chee cheong fun freshly made to order to ensure maximum freshness and quality.

Not just that though, the chef behind Chef Wei HK Cheong Fun is a dim sum chef with close to 2 decades of experience making dim sum at top restaurants. So you can be sure that their silky rice rolls are comparable to restaurants in quality.

After years as a dim sum chef at Peach Garden, Chef Wei decided to open his own business during the pandemic making his signature dish, chee cheong fun.

After the first outlet at Bedok was met with plenty of great reviews and social media hype, they’ve since opened up a second outlet at Clementi and will be opening a third at Bukit Panjang on 21 September.

The menu here at Chef Wei’s HK Cheong Fun is small with just 4 items, to guarantee tight quality control. Besides your normal Plain Cheong Fun (S$3), Char Siew Cheong Fun (S$4), and Prawn Cheong Fun (S$5), the star item here is a very unique Mushroom Cheong Fun (S$4).

All the important ingredients here are made from scratch, from those soft white sheets of rice flour to their fragrant sauce, and even a chilli made with a secret recipe.

Not only can you watch them roll out your dishes here at Chef Wei HK Cheong Fun, but you can also really taste the striking freshness as compared to the stale pre-made chee cheong fun you’d find at most kopitiam dim sum stalls.

It’s silky, with a nice gentle bouncy chew while the sauce is clean and fragrant without overpowering the delicate profile of the chee cheong fun itself.

While we enjoyed the char siew and sizeable prawns, the must-try item at Chef Wei HK Cheong Fun is the Mushroom Cheong Fun passed down from Chef Wei’s very own shifu.

It’s a rare version that we’ve never seen anywhere else — the rice sheets enveloped a fragrant filling made by stirfrying shiitake and shimeji mushrooms in butter and oyster sauce. The rich earthy taste complements the light chee cheong fun perfectly.

So if you’re fond of chee cheong fun but don’t want to shell out big bucks for freshly made ones, you’ve got to make a trip down to try these for yourself.
