Wrap-Up: The Bak Chor Mee Challenge

Some people said that, the birth place of this Bedok’s style of Bak Chor Mee is actually Chai Chee. Well that could be true since Chai Chee is actually very near to Bedok, infact just down the road about 100 metres off those HDBs at Chai Chee district.

But you may ask, if that’s so, why aren’t people calling it a ‘Chai Chee Bak Chor Mee’ instead? Well, nobody may be calling it a Chai Chee Bak Chor Mee but at least one stall in Bedok is calling itself Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodle.

Over at Bedok Blk 216 market, Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodle has been around for many many years. When I asked how long, the lady serving me just said “Many years, hard to count.”. Upon questioning whether they have any relations with the rest of the stalls around Bedok, she said that the stall owner at Blk 58 is the cousin of her husband and she confims every stalls in Bedok are related in some ways except the stall at Bedok Blk 538. But she did mentioned that they have no direct connection with those stall owners at Bedok 85 though, so it’s more likely a case of long distant relatives or something along that line.

I had eaten at this stall in the past and wasn’t impressed, especially in the soup and bak chor(minced meat). This time, my bowl of Bak Chor Mee from this stall seems to hit a new low. I remember in the past, the soup in particular was really a let down because it had ‘flavour no enough’. This time the flavour of the soup was ok but the bak chor and dumplings(bak giao) let me down greatly. The bak chor not only has not much of a flavour, it came in huge lumps that sinked to the bottom of the soup, not really how I think a great bowl of Bak Chor Mee should be. It came with dumplings but the flavour was quite strange. The fillings tasted somewhat like Siu Mai with that sort of sweetness overkill. The noodles came with that similar QQness but can hardly make up for it though.

Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodle’s Bak Chor Mee

Overall, my bowl of Bak Chor Mee from Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodle was way off the mark. There was no queue at about lunch time and my bowl came just approximately 2 mins after I ordered. I also didn’t see any customers ordering at the stall right till the time I finished my Bak Chor Mee. It’s clear that Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodle at Bedok Blk 216 has some work to do before they can attain the level of popularity that’s so zealous at other stalls.

Price: $2.50 onwards

Conclusion: Other stalls have beaten this stall for sure in many ways. Could be due to the lack of competition but to be fair, that market has a lot of good food so that might make it that little hard for them to excel. My bowl of Bak Chor Mee was a complete let down. This would be the last place I’d consider going for my Bak Chor Mee fix.

Likes: None.

Dislikes: Bak Chor not fine enough. Dumplings too sweet. Soup needs more flavour.

But you are giving them better than average (5 points?) rating? There are hundreds of worst one out there, why single this out?

They are closed on Mondays and not Wednesdays. They have stopped operating in the nights.

I’m a regular at their stall as I consider their Bak Chor Mee a very healthy variation to the oily versions in the other stalls.

Have you seen the queues on weekend mornings? They are one of the few stalls with long queues!
