went to a friend’s place to watch us open tennis finals between djokovic & federer.

finals was rain-delayed from 4am to 7am on 13.9.2015.

another friend joined at 6.30am & 4 of us decided to go for breakfast.

our first choice, the soupy Xing Ji (興记) Bakchormee at Fengshan Food Centre, was not yet opened so we drove over to bedok simpang & luckily jalan tua kong ah lim at bedok road has just opened.

this a good standard meepok tar. noodles was excellent QQ, fishballs were sweet & bouncy, chilli was good & spicy with the oomph, and there were 2 fishballs, 1 crispy dumplin, fishcakes and lots of minced pork.

flavour was good, but it was quite a bit salty. i did not finished some of the mince pork which were swimming in the quite salty chilli sauce at the bottom of the bowl.

in comparison, their neighbour jalan tua kong lau lim (only open at 7am), & also jalan tua kong at 6th avenue, were both better.

if only it was less salty, this meepok tar would have been excellent.

Best Bakchormee @ Changi Airport T3 B2 Kopitiam on 2Jan2015

bakchormee @ changi airport T3 basement B2

sent son to airport on 2.1.2015. he was back for 2 weeks short winter leave. 🙂

after checking in, i had also parked my car, there was a short time before immigration & boarding.

we went down to T3 basement 2 kopitiam food court & ordered a bakchormee at the lai heng fishball noodle stall.

for me, this is 1 of the best bakchormee. we had this many times before & it had always been good, no exception this time.

this the tai hwa crawford-style with mushroom sauce & lots of vinegar. it was very good, like as good as tai hwa’s. tasty, vinegar just right, good ingredients – liver & all. very satisfied.

it is different from the jalan tua kong meepok tar at 6th avenue, jalan tua kong lau lim @ bedok simpang, 132 marine terrace fishball noodles, but similar to ming fa @ upper thomson though that one has less vinegar.

was watching nadal vs djokovic ATP World Tour Finals at friend’s place at 4am. nadal lost in straight sets even with the support of 3 ardent fans. 🙂 anyway he had a good year after being out for 7 months from injury.

it was 6.30am early morning on 12.11.2013. we decided to go bedok simpang for breakfast. so it had to be meepok tar at jalan tua kong lau lim. according to my friend, this was from the original stall. 🙂

on this day it was a bit salty. the guy must have added a bit more fish sauce & usual loads of chilli. love the chilli. still, for me overall, it did not disappoint. meepok was enough qq (al dente), fish balls were sweet, and there were lots of minced pork & quite fatty ones & 3 la pok (deepfried lard) which i took 2. the fish cake & lean pork added to the overall experience. no prawn. but chilli was still the most important.

was it better than the jalan tua kong stall at 6th avenue? in fact i thought the 6th avenue one was better overall though perhaps this fishball was better! 🙂
