Minced Meat Noodle
Review (5)
I was at chinatown complex and there are so many stalls to choose from.Decided to try this stall minced meat noodles as it got the longest queue.The waiting time is long as the stall owner prepare the ingredients by himself.In case of any ingredients that is running out he will have to take from the fridge and prepare again.The minced meat noodles($3) come with braised mushroom,fried fish slices,fish cake,minced meat,meatball,fishball,pork lards,bean sprout and lettuces which is worth it.The mee pok is cooked perfectly as it got the QQ taste.The mee pok does not feel dry because it is soak in 1/4 of the mixed sauce.The soup is flavorful and when i felt that the noodles is too spicy i will add in more soup to neutralize it. continue reading

Visit :http://www.dairycream.blogspot.sg/2013/05/teo-chew-street-bak-chor-mee.html for Full Review and PicsDo you like Bak Chor Mee? I enjoy the dry meepok version with lots of chilli and black vinegar. I don't remember queuing at least 25min for a bowl (except for Tai Hwa) and I guess this stall has broken the record. Why the queue? Because the uncle prepares bowl by bowl, from boiling noodles to the meat. And after each bowl, he cleans his working table with the super water jet hose. His wife takes the order.So speaking of the taste, it is lighter, less salty or sourish than most outside. It could be personal preference but I think more splashes of vinegar and chilli would do some magic. The folks find that both the mee pok (thin yellow noddles) were undercooked--perhaps due to the rush in cooking, but the springy bite suit my liking.The best part of bak chor mee I look forward to is always the pieces of crispy flat solefish 扁鱼 and pork lard that impart fragrance to the noodles ($4). So conclusion, is it worth the queue? Yes if you have time. If not, I think you may want to skip it and go to other places.Visit :http://www.dairycream.blogspot.sg for Full Review and Pics continue reading

long queues don't mean a thing.this was a massively long queue! with obviously no plan in mind on what delicious item i wanted from chinatown complex, i was all ready to queue for my food. and being entirely singaporean meant queueing up. now this was a stall with just two people. the man cooking and woman taking orders.it was like clockwork. and it seemed the dry option was a hot favouriteBUT. it came drowned in sauce it was basically a wet option. It was way too oily. The ingredients were ample. The noodles were passable. But i'm not coming back. nor queueing. of course. continue reading

Chinatown Complex Food Centre is one of the biggest hawker centre I have ever been too. I am not familiar with what is nice over here. So what I did was to do a quick walk around and spot where the queues are and then zoom in to one that interest me. After walking round the whole hawker centre that took a whole 15 minutes (not thanks to the layout), I decided to try the Teochew St Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle 潮洲街香菇肉脞麵. What caught my attention was the word Teochew and the queue. There was a queue 5 people in front of me. I queued for at least 20 minutes before it was my turn to order. 20 minutes when there was only 5 people in front? Well, you heard this correctly!There were only 2 people manning the stall. A uncle, who did the cooking and preparing. While the auntie took the order and collected the cash. Normally, in other stalls, the person takes the orders from customers also prepares the ingredients for the chef (uncle). Not in this case. In fact, the uncle prepares all the ingredients himself. I even saw him going to the fridge and taking out more ingredients. Despite the queue, he was not anxious (kan chiong) and did take any short cut (kudos to him). I was certainly impressed as he took great care in cooking each bowl of noodles. I ordered the Bak Chor Mee 肉脞面. This bowl of Bak Chor Mee was excellent! The Mee Pok was cooked perfectly! Soft yet springy. A generous portion of ingredients such as braised mushroom, lean meat, minced meat, fish cake, crispy fish and even pork lard was given. I especially like the braised mushroom as it was not only flavourful but also soft. The sauce; a mixture of vinegar, chilli, oil and (who knows what other secret ingredients) complemented well with the noodles and ingredients. It enhanced the taste of the whole dish and was lip smacking despite the spiciness. The soup (pork stock) was simple yet flavourful. The meat ball and fish ball was average, nothing to shout about.It was a fulfilling meal for me. Not only did it taste good, it was also value for money with generous portion of ingredients and worth the wait (queue). This is one stall worth patronising and I am sure there are many more stalls worth a try at Chinatown Complex Food Centre. Anyone who frequently patronise the food centre here has any other recommendations? With so many stalls, I am sure there are lots of hidden gems here.

There are regular supporters for this noodle stall. You can see people queuing and waiting for the stall to open. The queue moved rather slowly, i waited for 30 mins to be served though i was the number 6 person in the queue.Most of the ingredients are prepared by the owner on the spot, like he can be tossing the noodle, and making the dumplings, and slicing the meat while waiting for the noodle to be cooked there and then. That somehow explained the long waiting time. And, that is also the guarantee of the freshest ingredients used somewhat. For $4.00, you are getting a prawn, a dumpling, a meat ball, mushroom, a few slices of meat and some minced meat etc. No matter, it is definitely value for money. Dry vs Soup. I still prefer the dry one a little more, though the soup one was pretty good too.Patience is the key, but the wait is worthwhile. continue reading
