"No Signboard" Bak Chor Mee @ Seng Poh Lane

Seems like in the past, having no signboard became the easiest way to start a business - and this joins the gang. Nested in the same coffee shop that is brought alive during lunch because of Loo's Hainanese Curry Rice, this stall garners the most traffic in the morning with snaking queues and minimally a 30 minute wait.

Early bird catches the worm? Hardly so when the elderly couple move to the tune of lullaby.

The full day's menu - they close once they sell out which has been rumoured to be between 2-3pm.

Dumpling Soup

Handwrapped pork dumplings, the skin is thicker than usual though still smooth and comes with a minced meat broth so comforting - let us just forget the lard thrown in to flavour.

Bak Chor Mee ($3)

The dry version seems to be highly sought after and comes with enough ingredients to stretch the dollar. Prawn in my $3 bowl is almost unheard of in other BCM stalls so there is a good deal going on - with minced meat, sliced pork, wantons, mushrooms and even a meatball.

Noodles are already tossed in the chilli oil and vinegar seasoning for easy tucking in.

And may be toss to more deliciosity.

WAIT.

The noodles had an unmistakable alkaline taste, that of machine made noodles and lacked the springyness I so desired. Average at best, just no where near Tai Hwa's.  I would queue for the latter in less than a heartbeat for double the waiting time even for that kind of satisfaction.

Closed on Thursdays.
