I'm addicted to Bak Chor Mee

I've talked often about my love for noodles. Char Kway Teow, Mee Siam, Soba, Pho, Ramen, Wanton Mee but strangely enough for the first 20 something years of my life, that list didn't include Bak Chor Mee.

But since I moved back, I cannot seem to get enough of them. By far, one of my favorite is located in Hong Lim Food Centre # 02-16 rated 3 chopsticks - a die die must try stall by Makansutra. Thankfully this is near my office so I go there at least once a week.


The line at lunch time is always very long but it is well worth the wait.


So what is it so special about this bowl of Bak Chor Mee ? It's the vinegar. The perfectly cooked noodles. The slivers of liver & meat. The wontons & meat balls. My personal favorite, the piece of dried fish.

I must say that I have never been hot about Bak Chor Mee, but maybe like you, with time, it'll change :-)

Hi S. Good to see you here.

I think it's because we've always had mediocre bak chor mee. Once you try a really good one, you might change your mind. We'll go when you are next back in Singapore.
