there’s a lot of buzz in the media & among friends lately about a japanese family who started a bakchormee mee stall at clementi west.

one friend rounded the rest of us up so today 9 of us descended on ah hoe meepok at blk 710, clementi west street 2 on 2.11.2015. ^^

some of us were there at 11.30am. there was no queue yet. nearer 12pm we had about 6pax & started queueing. there were then about 4 to 5 persons in the queue. but shortly after the queue was 10+ long and continued so.

singaporeans vote with their feet. as one of the reviewers johorkaki said, if the food were not good, the hype would soon fixxle out.

8 of us ordered the S$5 meepok dry. only 1 friend ordered the soup.

so do i think it was that good?

meepok was qq, texture was very good. the chilli & sauce coated the noodles well & taste was good.

there were loads of ingredients, i had 5 pork balls, 3 slices of shellfish, sliced pork, mushrooms &minced pork. there was no liver, or tipoh (the dried flatfish).

for me though, it could do with a bit more vinegar, and the chilli sauce though tasty, was not spicy & did not have the kick.

there was some garlic vinegar sauce i think, which a friend who was here for the 3rd time now said it was good, so i added that to the noodles & tossed.

i think it was similar to what we added to the ramen at Ichiran 一蘭 in fukuoka. it was nice, but somehow i still prefer the more fragrant black vinegar.

i did not try the soup version. it looked good too. i will certainly try the soup version next time.

my benchmark for meepok teng (soup version) is xing ji (興记) bakchormee fengshan food centre

i certainly like this bakchormee here & will take it again, but it was not compelling or must have variety for me.

i would prefer-

  1. tai hwa bakchormee at crawford lane.
  2. lai heng bakchormee at changi T3 B2 kopitiam
  3. & also the 6th avenue jalan tua kong meepok tar though that is a different fishball noodles style

bakchormee was good & we had a great time among old friends 9 of us.

it is not something though i would specially drive myself to come & eat alone. unlike say my favourite ah heng curry chicken noodles at hong lim food centre; or

the really good why eat har big prawn noodles.
