Bak Chor Mee

I went for the northern part of Singapore to the eastern part where this food centre is located hoping to have a taste of that famous soup version Bak Chor Mee. I was totally disappointed when i saw the dim signboard of that stall with the shuttle down.

I shifted my attention to the competitor stall right beside.

I went over to order for a $3 bowl of soup Bak Chor Mee. I was a bit surprised to find out that they do serve the dry version as well but the soup one seems to be a more popular choice. There is the selection of $2.50 for a smaller bowl of the soup one. The dry one is priced slightly higher at $3 for the smaller bowl and $3.50 for a larger bowl.

I given my table and proceeded to wait. The wait was a bit longer than expected. I actually waited for about 25 minutes before i gotten it. I was there for an early dinner at about 6 pm and so it was quite unexpected.

The presentation of the noodle was slightly boring. A handful of the thinner type of noodle served with 6 pieces of meatballs and bits of minced meat in the soup with a spoonful of red cut chilli.

I took a sip of the soup first. The taste was rather light with a slight sweetness detected. The spiciness of those red cut chilli was rather mild so it did not add much flavour to the soup or having it together with the noodle. I do like those tasty meatballs though.

The noodle has got a noticeable springiness with just the right softness to give it the near perfect texture.

Though it did not taste the best but it was a comforting bowl of noodle particularly ideal for a light dinner and on those cold nights.

The queue was getting longer when i done with my bowl of noodle. I am going to make another trip right here to taste the supposedly original stall of this particular version of Bak Chor Mee. This stall is a good alternative though.
