Fans of good-old Bak Chor Mee must have missed Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles 麦波申肉脞面, which had been attracting long queues at Opal Crescent previously.
They moved quite a fair bit of times, and finally resettled back at Tai Thong Crescent and Bukit Batok Connection.
Uncle Yap helps out the stall at the Tai Thong Crescent kopitiam, which is a short distance away from its old location. However, the queue does not seem to be half as long as what it was previously.
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 favourite BCM 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 operating hours are considerably short.
What works for its Bak Chor Mee ($5) 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 was 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.
