after the community breakfast at PPH teban gardens community service centre, my OPS primary school classmate & i adjourned to ah hoe mee pok at blk 710 clementi west street 2 on 16.9.2016. ^^

was looking forward to this, especially after the below par, actually quite disappointing seng kee bak chor mee at serangoon gardens yesterday!

2pax queue ahead at 10.30am @ ah hoe bak chor mee on 16.9.2016

we ordered a S$4 mee pok each (the no. 2 bak chor mee style, they also sell the no. 1 fish ball noodles style)

there’s lots of ingredients for S$4, lots of minced pork, sliced pork. pork balls, mushrooms etc & not too much mee pok, just perfecto for me la…

the mee pok was qq, quite perfect (unlike the quite unacceptable soggy mee pok i had at seng kee yesterday).

the chilli sauce over taste was very good, just not spicy enuf, not enuf kick for me,i took some chilli paste from them but that was not enuf, so i added a bit of chilli padi without the fish sauce. they also have the garlic sauce like what they used for ramen in japan, but i quite ok without that.

they served a chashu men japanese ramen style (S$6/S$7) on weekends only. maybe i will come & try that 1 weekend. 🙂

today i tried the ter kah braised pork trotters.

the skin gelatinous part texture ok. the mushroom sauce taste not my preferred style.

i liked both the common styles the lor 鲁 type seved in most bakuteh & other trotter stalls, and also the vinegared trotters. both are more “pang”. this one the sauce is just the similar mushroom sauce for the bakchormee. & i feel the texture of the lean part is not as good.

went with a good RI friend for bak chor mee at seng kee 胜记at serangoon gardens food centre on 15.9.2016. ^^

this supposed to be the famous  stall at eunos then changi road before relocating to serangoon gardens. & the stall holder used to be known for clanging his ladle on a plate when he cooked his noodles.

it was almost 12pm, & there was a queue of about 8pax ahead of us, though when we collected our bak chor mee, there was only 1 person behind us.

queue was maybe 15mins. we ordered a S$4 bowl dry mee kia. the chilli looked potent & great.

however after all these build up, the results was much below expectations la….

S$4 seng kee 胜记bak chor mee soup

S$4 seng kee 胜记bak chor mee soup

today the soup was quite tasty….

surprisingly i forgot to check my own blog post that i made 2 years ago on 19.11.2014.

i said in the post then –

“that should have been promising, however the results were very disappointing. i would say the bakchormee was totally mediocre, can probably get better from any coffeeshop or hawker centre.

for us, the main failure was the chilli. i went to ask for more chilli. chilli looked potent but it had no taste no kick. my wife’s mee kia (thin noodles) was still qq, my meepok was becoming soggy.

the ingredients were quite good, with teepor (dried flatfish/sole) & her kilo (fish dumplings), mushroom sauce, liver, lean meat etc”.

==========================

and today i said on my FB-

Long queue…..

Quite surprise noodles soggy not qq …I thot any body can make qq noodles nowadays???

not really poor but definitely below expectations….soup good got tipor taste…good ingredients but chilli mushroom sauce oso not super…
