went with 3 RI friends to fengshan market on 9.4.2017.
this the second time I havingxing ji bakchormee 兴记肉搓面 (& with the same group of friends), the famous soupy bakchormee which won the SPH inaugural hawker master award 2011.
the noodles still good, though we thought somehow it was not as good as we expected, though it was difficult for me to really recall the taste from 3 years ago.
the soup & generous minced pork serving still good, and I thought I t was less 清 today, the noodles looked quite the same when I looked at previous photos. it was still al dente & stringy, somehow seemed less of an impression.
anyway still a nice enjoyable light nourishing bowl of goodness. but I probably prefer the regular bakchormee, like the jalan tua kong meepork tar near my place.
maybe I will also try the neighbour stall next time to compare. & talking about this there was a soup bakchormee stall at sin min road corner coffeeshop wife & I used to go 30yrs+ ago, maybe I should try that too if it is still there….
good crowd & traffic at 6.30pm+
& many stalls looking good, so I should be coming here again..
we had some bbq chicken wings. my friend ordered it. he later told me it was NOT from this chong pang stall.
chicken wings were good – tasty, charred not burnt or overcooked/tough.
chicken was good too. and a bit of lime did the trick.
friend ordered 8 otah for 4pax.
nice otah too…not my favourite food, so I took one.
I decided to add some ngor hiang.
picked 4 items for $6 – the crispy thing, fish cake, a ngor hiang & a you cha kuay.
I liked all of them. fish balls were tasty, ngor hiang great skin & tasty, tender fillings. you char kuay was good & the crispy thing was the best!
afterwards we went to our friend’s condo & had a fun AV evening.
a nice view of ECP & the eastern anchorage from his 29th storey condo.
