Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee @ North Bridge Road

Bak Chor Mee $3.50

Bak Chor Mee (aka Minced Pork Noodle) has always been one of my favored noodle dish.

When I was at Bugis to see the 3D Street Art by Joe Hill the other day, I thought why not cross over to Seng Huat Eating House at Liang Seah Street for a quick bite?

I had specifically requested for extra vinegar and spiciness but they had either forgotten about my request or added too little to make a difference.

Despite that, however, Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee did not fail me. The al dente mee pok tossed in a winning concoction of chilli and vinegar was such a delight!

After tossing in the sauce

Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee was served with meatball, liver and pork slices and of course the braised mushroom and bak chor (minced meat).

I do not usually like meatballs but this one was a little different. Is there crispy dried fried fish added in the mixture? Whatever it is, it sure added an extra punch to the bouncy meatball which I wished there were more of.

The liver slices did not disappoint as well. It was slightly pink without being too raw or overcooked tasting like rubber.

I have always enjoyed having pork slices in my bak chor mee but not every stall serves them. The slices of pork in this bowl was tender and not tough.

Although called Bak Chor Mee, I felt the deciding factor which makes or break a bowl of this noodle lies in the braised mushrooms. Seng Huat's mushrooms were plump and juicy. Chewing on them, I could literally feel the sauce bursting in my mouth...

I really could not find any fault with the mee pok but the soup on the other hand, is a little overwhelming for me as I find it too cloyingly sweet for my liking.

In spite of that, I have to say that Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee is one of the better Bak Chor Mee around even though the portion is a little unfulfilling for me at $3.50.

Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee operates 24 hours.

Now you know where to go if you crave for Bak Chor Mee in the middle of the night?
