When you’re in Serangoon Gardens, make a detour and head to Seng Kee and try their Bak Chor Mee Soup.
A long-time hawker stall, it has been running for 36 years and operated by owner Mr. Lee and daughter Melody.
If it has been awhile you last visited them, they are now at Stall #36.
While you are at Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre, other hawker stalls to look out for include Aliff Nasi Lemak, Serangoon Garden Bakery & Confectionery, Bossi Ban Mian, Ah Seng Braised Duck Rice, Hock Kee Fried Oyster, Soon Huat Pig’s Organ Soup, and Covent Garden Kway Chap.
The Seng Kee queue can get relatively long during lunch time. As every bowl is cooked up one by one, so getting your food may take a while.
Mr Lee is quite famous for his antic of tossing his bowl up into the air whenever he prepares Bar Choe Mee, so look out for that.
The stall serves up Minced Meat Noodles Dry or Soup ($5, $6), Fish Maw Noodle Dry or Soup ($11, $13), Pork Rib Noodles ($5, $6) and Fish Maw Soup ($11, $13).
Order the Fish Maw Noodles bowl which includes slices of pork liver, minced pork and braised mushrooms. Mr. Lee himself assures you he uses premium quality fish maw in his BCM.
What’s special about Seng Kee’s version of BCM are the sliced mushrooms that come with it – braised for at least 4 hours for full flavour.
The noodles, cooked to the right texture, are tossed in a thick mushroom sauce and some chillies.
The pork-based soup is cloudy with a good chance of rain of umami and deep flavours. They boil pork bones for hours and add dried sole (ti poh) for extra flavour.
With all that said, if you had only ordered one bowl of noodles from the stall and it was the dry version, you might have been slightly disappointed and find it to be more ordinary.
Some fans also mentioned the bowl used to taste better in the past.
That could be because it lacked that rich mixture of flavours that would blend well with the noodles and vinegary kick.
