More reviews are available at www.umakemehungry.comOne of the popular hot spots in Bedok area for its Mee Pok and Kway Teow Mee. Occupying 2 stall space of the coffeeshop and with one similar branch steps away, they are consider quite big.Well known for its long waiting time, this is no deterence to their faithful supporters and even so tables are usually filled up in the coffeeshop over the weekends.The bigger portion of Bak Chor Mee has more ingredients, such as additional fishballs and prawns.Standards have a vast difference as compared to the very first time I had visited them. Noodles are moist but the soup & food tasted bland this round. I can no longer reminisce the old school days time over a hot bowl of Bah Chor Mee.A red color bowl to differentiate the sizes for the portions of noodles ordered.The portions and pricing are too pricy to determine such a bowl of Bah Chor Mee. Although Lau Lim has its own style in the bowl of bah chor mee, we can better portions and value worth the money else where. continue reading

Little Devil & I get to know about this place a few years back, when out of the blue my FIL keep coming back to this location to eat Kway Teow Mee. On one fine day, he just keep insisting that we must go and try. As we are staying in Hougang, it took us about 20 mins to get here. It was a Saturday morning and finding a parking spot was really a hassle. Alas, it also took us another 30 mins of wait before we get our order. Hungry and annoyed, my first impression here was less memorable.This time around, after sending someone to the airport, we decided to give this place a try again. As it has received many endorsements from the media and food bloggers, there must be something good about this place. Best part, it was a weekday morning, so we don't expect it to be packed with people.Occupying two shops, Jalan Tua Kong Lau Lim ('JTK') stall can be quite big. One shop sell the fishball noodle, drinks and toast while the other location, also have Yong Tau Fu. For a bright sunny day, the al-fresco can be considered quite warm, there is an option for indoors in the second shop. You must order at the cashier, make payment and get your queue number to put on your table.We ordered 2 dry Mee Pok ($4 each) and a bowl of Fish Ball Soup ($5). We waited about 15 minutes before the food was served.The portion size is above average. Each bowl you get 3 fish balls, few slices of fish cakes, bak chor and lean meat and ... Wow, I see prawns!! Yup, 3 pieces of prawns and they are deshelled. I have to admit, now you know where the $$$ goes to.The noodle is cook to al-dente, not sticky and with a bite of crunchiness in it. Covered under the ingredients are the generous serving of pork lard and pork oil that basked the noodle. Wow, no wonder the noodle is yummy. The fish ball is bouncy but soft, while the rest of the ingredients are fresh, especially the prawns.As I ate my noodle without chilli, I can tell you it is very flavourful. LD's like her noodle as well, and she approved of the chilli version of the mee pok.The Fish Ball Soup has around 10 fishballs in it. The soup looks a bit cloudy, covered with excess of the fishball which add to the taste of the soup. Again the fishball is soft and springy. Very Q.Service here is very minimum, as you need to go to the cashier to order before they deliver your food.Overall, based on our second experience here JTK fishball noodle is one of the good fishball noodle around. Price definitely higher, however you are paying for the quality here. Waiting time will be the minus point here, but at least you can seat, have a drink and chit chat while you wait.

People who feeling contented was happier, I agreed the statement. Just like me, I was satisfied my order, a decent plate of Fishball Noodles. Opened early in the morning, I saw their supporters were mostly elderly.Having my late breakfast, I took my time to eat slowly. Chewy and springy noodles were what I expected, great combination to the slices fish cake. Came along with soup for dried version, hearty bowl was watery yet flavourful. Natural sweetness flashed out from pork bone and fishballs, it was obviously cooked without MSG. $3.50 was utterly cheap for mine, like it very much. continue reading

I 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.I 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.See my full reviews & photos at http://chefquak.com/2013/11/12/meepok-tar-jalan-tua-kong-lau-lim-at-bedok-simpang-on-12nov2013/ continue reading

Their fishball noodles are very old-school taste with fresh ingredients used, yong tau foo is very nice and fresh too, with their own special sauce, a must eat, their beehoon with minced meat also very nice with their sauce, pampered for choice for their yong tau foo, for fishball noodles, be prepared to wait for at least 20mins for it, but it is nice, don't compare with the modern type Q noodles, it is not that type, it belongs to the soft type. Overall, this stall is worth to eat and you will see that it is always crowded. continue reading
