Wrap-Up: The Bak Chor Mee Challenge

If you’ve been to Tiong Bahru Market Food Centre, you would realised that there are about 5 stalls of Lor Mee. Only few years ago, before the market was upgraded, there was only 1 Lor Mee stall. So from 1 to 5 Lor Mee stalls within a few years is quite a mean feat and it’s so mean that very few people actually know which is the original Lor Mee stall.

At Bedok Blk 85 Fengshan Market & Food Centre, it took 20 years to reach 3 stalls of Bak Chor Mee. Now probably because the growth was span over 20 odd years at Bedok Blk 85 Fengshan Market & Food Centre therefore Xing Ji Ruo Cuo Mian( the original stall) is still able to attract the bulk of the customers.

Ah Poh Meat Noodles at Bedok Blk 85 Fengshan Market & Food Centre seems to be attracting the odd Bak Chor Mee customer only. This stall is actually open by the younger sister of the owner of Xing Ji Ruo Cuo Mian(stall no 7 ). They also serve only the soup version and I read somewhere that says they have dumplings if you request for it though when I asked, they told me they don’t have dumplings aka Bak Giao.

I was told by a friend(who always visits this stall) that the original seller from Stall no 7 is actually now working at this stall though when I asked the man who was taking orders at the front of the stall, he kindly told me that this stall is open by the sister of the original seller and even asked me to go to stall no 7 if I want the original one.


Bak Chor Mee from Ah Poh Meat Noodles

My bowl of Bak Chor Mee from Ah Poh Meat Noodles is slightly different from the other 2 stalls( Xing ji and Seng Hiang). The noticeable difference is the Bak Chor is not that finely grinded and the soup is a lot saltier though for my friend who always ate at this stall, it has the best soup for her. The soup does have that bit more punch(though saltier too) but it left me a little thirsty after finishing up the bowl so that’s a minus point at the end of the day.

My noodles’ QQness was ok but the minced meat’s doneness was too ‘well done’ and so it had big chunks all over the bowl. Ah Poh Meat Noodles’ Bak Chor Mee is not refined enough for me and infact a little dull. It didn’t produce that slurpy good effect that I had with the other 2 stalls. This stall is probably good for those who likes their food to be that little saltier, otherwise the way I look at it, they’ve got it all wrong at the very basics.

Price: $2.50

Conclusion: Possibly the least points scored for authenticity so far. Eating the Bak Chor Mee at this stall gives me the feeling that the quality control can be improved. Didn’t make me yearning for more but left me quite thirsty at the end. If you like saltish food, this will probably wins your vote.

Likes: None.

Dislikes: Nothing special about this bowl of Bak Chor Mee. Also come with 5 meatballs – if they have dumplings then it might score some points. The noodles, minced meat and soup failed to complement each other well. Too saltish.
