Lin Lin, where I declared they sold possibly the best vegetarian dish in Singapore. That dish is fried hor fun. Recently I found myself back in Bedok again, and felt a magnetic pull from my stomach to this stall. It would be a crime for anyone to go to Bedok and not eat at this stall. Just to be sure not to visit on Monday, as they are closed all day. So without further day, let us visit the king/queen of wok hei.

Fried Hor Fun, I watched the kitchen in amazement, as I saw it fill with a thick smoke. The wok hei (smoke flavour) is so strong that the chef has to wear a mask! I have had a lot of people comment proclaiming Jing Yi has stronger wok hei. I am sorry, I still feel that Lin Lin is miles ahead. You must make sure it is the wife or husband owner that cooks it however. I did once have it cooked by another member of staff, and the wok hei was not as strong. If you like wok hei, then you must go and order the hor fun from this stall. Since my first visit, the price has undergone an increase - I do still feel it is worth it though, because the quality of the dish is so high.
Price: $4.00. 10/10
Conclusion - Surprisingly Lin Lin does have quite a vast menu of other dishes. For myself though, I am very single-minded when visiting, my focus is totally on fried hor fun. To achieve this level of smoke flavour, yet not burning the ingredients too severely is a masterful skill. You simply must visit and order this dish.
