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.

Instant Noodles with Prawns & Oysters

wife, children were out, eating alone this evening.

didn’t feel like cooking anything. looked at the freezer & picked out some prawns & frozen oysters – easiest to defrost. the prawns had shells on so easy to separate.

did not feel like having the more expensive instant noodles like (1) mykuali penang white curry noodles or (2) instant mala ramen 香锅麻辣牛肉面 or (3) nissin kyushu black ramen. so just pick the cheap myojo chicken abalone instant noodles. 🙂

Yummy Big Prawn Noodles @ Why Eat Har on 28Apr2015

S$5 prawn nooldes

S$5 prawn noodles

had another round of yummy big prawn nooldes at why eat har, a big prawn noodles stall opened recently by my good friend’s brother.

the last time i tried was with a big group of friends on 6.3.2015. this time we had 10 chap pies.^^

thye hwa heng canteen is located at blk 29 eunos avenue 6 near to signpost building. many car workshops here.

the S$5 prawn noodles looked marvellously yummy! 🙂

the 2 prawns (4 pieces of 1/2-sliced prawns) were quite a bit larger than the S$5 bowl at ah hui at balestier food centre.

S$6 big prawn noodles

not so evident from the photo that the S$6 big prawns were much larger than these S$5 ones.

6 of us ordered the S$6 big prawn noodles. not sure if this was the usual pricing as the board said S$8, but prawns do vary in size & price on the day & i know the stalls adjust the prices accordingly sometimes. e.g. when we were at wah kee at pekkio food centre, cambridge road recently, the prawns were larger than what they served for S$10 so we had to order S$15 big prawn noodles.

most of us added the S$2 pork ribs so total+S$8. i think one friend had the S$6 w/o pork ribs.

noodles were lesser than the last round (which was like the 2nd day after stall opened & we feedback that noodles were a bit much).

chilli sauce was more intense, could be because of lesser noodles, but did feel a bit tastier.

prawns were good as last time. the proprietor chong long, my friend’s brother, said the fishmonger told him these prawns were sweeter than anka prawns & a friend agreed it was sweeter. i must say i did not feel much difference. i though the prawns this time were just slightly overdone & not as bouncy as last round, but equally fresh & sweet. 🙂

the pork ribs were very good standard, very tender, consistent but not falling apart & great taste. as a pork rib dish i thought it was very good, very well done. personally though i not specially into the tender pork ribs noodles bit. for pork ribs i prefer bakuteh style with slightly more bite rather than the soft bones teture & feel.

very yummy & enjoyable prawn noodles. will come back again later.^^
