[Update Jan 2021] Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles has ended operations at Marsiling Mall Hawker Centre.
[Review previously written in July 2020] Fans of good-old Bak Chor Mee must have been missing Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles 麦波申肉脞面, which had been attracting long queues at Opal Crescent.
After its closure due to rental issues (plus Uncle Yap has been talking about retirement), they were wondering if it would be back.
Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles 麦波申肉脞面 has reopened at Marsiling Mall Hawker Centre #01-18.
For those staying around Tai Thong, worry not as there will be another outlet coming soon (October), and its location will be within 1.5km from the old location at Upper Serangoon Coffeeshop.
The stall is known for serving up Minced Meat Noodles aka Bak Chor Mee, Fish Ball Noodles, Chicken Feet Noodles, Pig’s Trotter Noodles and Xiao Wan Mian.
Their dry Bak Chor Mee may just be a shoo-in for one of my personal Top 3 favourites in Singapore.
Watch owner Uncle Yap cook up his noodles, and you know that your bowl is in good hands.
The only thing is the line can be rather long during lunch hours, and the operating hours were considerably short.
What works for its Bak Chor Mee is its balance of sauces, just the right proportion of vinegary goodness and spiciness from the chilli.
And it always come piping hot with the steam almost reaching your face as you toss the noodles around. That is also why I would say just have the noodles there and then, and not dabao.
The pork slices were tender, and the savoury braised mushrooms would add that final magic.
I am quite fond of the Soup version as well.
The soup came very hot and ‘floating’ with many ingredients from minced pork to sliced braised mushrooms, flavourful with slight sweetness as it is cooked with soybeans and ikan billis.
Ah, the taste of umami.
There is that bit of old-school flavour as well, matched with al dente mee kia.
Get the fishcake if you still have stomach space.
