I can't believe I'm the first to review this place! Hawker stalls getting neglected these days I guess...

This Ba Chor Mee is not what you'd get from most other stalls. This comes only with meatballs, minced meat, and noodles. No frills like mushrooms, or lettuce. Visual-wise, it's very plain and boring and not very appetising.

Yet, the simple combination of soup and meat still manages to be endlessly eatable. You could eat bowls of this and not get sick. That is a testament to something that's simply satisfying... uncomplicated and unsophisticated, but no less delicious. The noodles are springy, the soup is just the right taste of meat (not oily, not salty), and the meatballs are firm yet tender.

Don't be tricked. There is a stall right next to this one, at the corner, with its own share of signs. I haven't tried it yet, but if you want the truly famous one, it's this one you're looking for. Location wise, this place is by a bus stop. Atmosphere wise, it's a coffee shop with alfresco dining under the stars, which makes the place remarkably cooler (temperature and ambience wise). It's good for drinking with Uncles but not for chatting with friends. There's a good selection of other stalls to supplement your Ba Chor Mee, e.g. Pork Porridge, Oyster Omelette, BBQ Sting ray, Satay, etc... A real hawker food paradise.

Note of caution, depending on where you sit, order from the correct drink stall servicing that quadrant. Otherwise you risk getting scolded! You're in the right place if the colour of your drink's straw matches that of the other patrons around you.
