I have long heard about this famous "Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle" which have been hailed as the best Bak Chor Mee (Minced Meat Noodle) in Singapore by its fans.

That claim sure arouse my interest but I only got to try it last week when I went to collect my new passport from the ICA (Immigration & Checkpoint Authority of Singapore) beside Lavender MRT.

The stall in question is located at Blk 466 Crawford Lane, which is right behind the ICA building.

Even though I was there at 11am, a queue of 6 people had already formed in front of the stall. The queue is very slow moving; by the time it reached my turn, twenty minutes have passed.

Of course, I know twenty minutes is not a very long time to wait considering that the queue can sometimes stretch beyond the perimeter of the coffee shop during peak hours (which literally translates to at least 60 minutes of wait)!

I really take my hat off to these people who bothered to queue so long just to have a bowl of noodles.

炒果条 Fried Kway Teow @ Amoy Street Food Centre


Amoy Street Food Centre is a great place to grab lunch if you work nearby in the CBD area. It is a two-storey food center that has every kind of local food imaginable.

If you do a search on what's recommended here, the Char Kway Teow is bound to turn up in the results. char koay teow

Char Kway Teow, or Fried Kway Teow is a flat rice noodle dish fried with eggs, bean sprouts, cockles, and lup cheong (chinese sausage).

This particular Fried Kway Teow stall at Amoy Street Food Centre serves one of the better ones around. Well, not out of this world good but good enough.

Afterall, uncle has been frying kway teow for the last 50 odd years when he first operated from a push cart at Boon Tat Street in the 1960s. If his kway teow is not good, his business could not have lasted till now.
