Located in the same coffeeshop as 6th Avenue Wanton Noodle is this Mee Pok stall called Original Jalan Tua Kong 132 Mee Pok which is managed by two guys.

The name of the stall baffles me as it is a combination of two very famous Teochew Mee Pok stalls like 132 Mee Pok from Marine Terrace and Jalan Tua Kong Lau Lim Mee Pok from Simpang Bedok. 

I know of the story between 132 and Lau Lim but what about this stall which claims to be the "Original"? Is this stall hitching a ride on their names or simply a disgruntled sibling/relative/ex-worker striking out on his own?

In all honesty, I have not eaten both 132 or Lau Lim before hence, I cannot compare who does it better. However, this stall's Mee Pok is the best that I have tasted thus far.

Simply place your order with the guy outside the stall and make your payment at the same time. You will then be given a beeping device to collect your noodles once it is ready.

My $4 Mee Pok came with two bouncy fishballs, a prawn, some slices of fishcake, pork slices and bak chor (minced pork).

Fresh ingredients aside, what wow-ed me the most were the al dente Mee Pok glistening in the sauce.

Do not be deceived by the pale looking noodles but the explosion of flavors in your mouth really hit the spot. The chili sauce, especially packs a punch. I would say this is so much better than the Michelin-starred Tai Hwa Pork Noodles.

The only one word I could think of to describe this Mee Pok is "shiok ah"! (Okay, make that two words)

Apart from selling Fishball Bak Chor Mee Pok, they also sell Abalone Noodle ($10) and Pacific Clams Noodle ($6).

To me, whether this is the "Original" or not is hardly of any importance. What matters more is its fantastic taste and location which is so much easily accessible compared to 132 and Lau Lim.

Until I have a taste of 132 and Lau Lim, this shall be my top choice for Mee Pok.
