Bak chor mee, as I learned, is a true Singaporean dish. There are many similar dishes in parts of China and Malaysia, but the real bak chor mee is, from what many say, a true Singaporean food. So I was excited to try it for the first time. Since I was staying not too far from Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles, which happens to be one of the most legendary hawkers selling the dish, Ying and I decided to try it one afternoon. To my surprise, the line wasn’t very long when we arrived, and there were just about 5 people waiting in line in front of me. So it only took about 5 minutes before I got my bowl of noodles.

Bak chor mee, which is also called pork noodles, includes yellow egg noodles, which are tossed in a sauce of oil and chilies and vinegar, and then topped with a variety of different pork ingredients like minced pork, liver, and in this case a couple of meatballs and some wanton dumplings, and finished off with some green onions. I added in a few spoonfuls of diced bird eye chilies to the side of my bowl to kick the heat up a notch as well.

After mixing up the noodles and all the sauce, I took a bite of my first bowl of bak chor mee. I’m a huge egg noodle lover, so I immediately enjoyed the egg noodles, which were slightly chewy and fresh. I also enjoyed the sauce, which was slightly spicy from the sambal and chilies, and especially balanced nicely with vinegar to give it a sour touch. It was similar to a bowl of wanton mee, but it had a different taste to it as well. I can’t really speak for other days and how busy Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles will be, but on a weekday in the middle of the afternoon, it wasn’t bad at all. And they serve a bowl of noodles that I think are worth making a queue for.
