Shi Hui Yuan Locations & Outlets 實惠園
From a hawker stall in 1969 to a 4 year consecutive Michelin Bib Gourmand Award winner (2016 – 2019), SHI HUI YUAN has bravely weathered the passage of time. Famed for its collagen-rich gravy and nutrient-loaded herbal braising sauce that has been cooked uninterrupted for the last 30 years, SHI HUI YUAN is a uniquely Singapore-invented Hor Fun.
Back in the 1960s, Hor Fun was an expensive dish served only in restaurants. SHI HUI YUAN’s founders, Mr Fong Pak Thim and his wife, wanted to create their version of Singapore Hor Fun that is both nutritious and affordable for the local community. Hence the name 實惠園 came about.
Passionately, they developed a recipe using over 30 herbs such as Dang Shen, Yang Shen Xu and Luo Han Guo, in line with their Cantonese cooking philosophy of “Food as Medicine”. The herb-based braising sauce has been continuously stewed over 30 years with meat and bones from chicken and duck. Each plate of Hor Fun is packed with more than 1500 mg of collagen. The founders believe that “Good things should always be shared with others”.

Shi Hui Yuan Review (Compass One)
Shi Hui Yuan 實惠園 at Compass One is located in the Kopitiam Food Court at level 4. Upon entering the food court, head for the corner stall on the right.
We learnt about this stall through the Shopee promotion ($3.40 for the Braised Chicken Drumstick Hor Fun) and used its vouchers on two different occasions. We used the first for take-away and the other for dine-in. There was a $0.50 additional charge for a take-away container that separates the Hor Fun from chicken drumstick with gravy. On both visits, there were no customers in the queue and we were served promptly.
The taste of its braise gravy was rich with herbs and the chicken was tender. The only issue was that the hor fun lumped into a ball instead of being noodle-like, even for dine-in version. In all, we find the meal was good for the discounted price but if it is sold at its original price of $6.20, we think there are much better options at the other stalls for this price (e.g. chicken cutlet with sides at $7.00).
