If you have wonder where Chun Seng Noodle House known for its “100 year old recipe lok bak” went to, it is now opened at Ghim Moh Food Centre (next to Tom’s Cityzoom Mee Pok Tar).

One thing to note is their style of Bak Chor Mee is different from the typical styles you may be used to, included with slices of braised pork belly.

The hawkers initially let go of their ABC Food Centre stall wanting to call it quits due to the draining and labourious work, but found an opportunity to have a new business partner at Ghim Moh.

The hawker stall now spots a more consistent branding of striking yellow signboard, along with matching tees and flashing display board. The xiao mei called out “I love Chun Seng Noodles” when serving the bowls.

The first time I tried Chun Seng Noodle House 春成 at ABC Brickworks Food Centre was during the “Circuit Breaker” period.

Then I spotted a young hawker mum juggle between taking care of her baby boy and settling delivery orders from the Bak Chor Mee.

The wait for the customer was longer than usual, but the scene of a strong mother warmed my heart and so I wanted to lend some support.

The hawker Fiona thanked me for IGSing her food then, though I did not tell her why I bought the noodles.

Another reason was because I spotted some similarities between this and a Wanton Noodle stall which I like – Yong Chun Wanton Noodle 永春云吞面 at Bukit Merah View Food Centre.

Turned out that they are sister stalls (literally real sisters), and 春 which symbolises “spring” is the name of their mother.

Married couple Jerry Ng and Fiona Lim started becoming hawkers due to the NEA Incubation Stall Programme, which saw them getting some rental rebate for the initial stage and basic equipment in setting up the stall.

The young hawkers start their stall at a very early hour of 6am, which means preparations for the braised pork and pork lard have to be done in the wee hours of the morning as they insist to have them freshly made.

The reason is to cater to older customers who go to the market before sunrise.

On the menu are Minced Pork Noodles ($4.50, $6.50), Braised Pork Belly Noodles ($5.50), Dumpling Soup ($4.50), and Spicy Dumpling ($4.50).

There is no chicken feet noodles anymore, and they have also included a Spicy Dumpling option. (Pictured above are the old versions for comparison, and they have removed the fishcakes and mushrooms.)

So if you like your noodles very vinegary, with braised minced pork, or with tender pork slices, then you may be quite surprised at this bowl.

Other than minced pork, fishballs, deep-fried wanton skin, something you would notice out of the ordinary is the braised pork belly aka lor bak – which replaces the usual pork liver and sliced pork.

They call this the “100-years Lor Bak”. The recipe for this lor bak is passed down through generations from the family of Fiona’s mum (she is also a hawker at the same food centre).

This pork belly was more lean than fatty, though I can imagine some customers preferring a version thicker and more melt-in-the-mouth.

The fishballs were comparatively quite ordinary. One ingredient I liked in the previously bowl was braised mushrooms, which was uncomfortably removed in this current renditioned.

The noodles stay springy with a good bite without a strong alkaline taste.

When tossed with the sauces, you get that mix of savouriness with the mellow vinegary taste (can be more, I feel), and some hints of chilli.

The $4.50 bowl also includes an additional dumpling, but I won’t mind getting a whole bowl of Dumpling Soup ($4.50).

The shui jiao come wrapped with fresh pork and chunks of water chestnut which give this delightful crunch and natural sweetness. The soup has been tweaked with lighter flavours.

Overall, still good value for its money.
