Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle | Singapore

5 Jul

In my 2 years away from Singapore, people often ask me – what’s good to do in Singapore? Usually, I answer – “eating, shopping – maybe gambling”. [An unusually pessimistic Quora answer claims this is the extent of it all]

My answer usually prompts the follow-up: “So what’s the food you miss most about being in Singapore?” Apparently the top two answers are usually chilli crab and chicken rice. The foods that I miss though, are Bak Chor Mee and Nasi Lemak.

So I bought Leslie Tay (ieatishootipost)’s hawker food guide – The End of Char Kway Teow, and this led me to Tai Hwa pork noodle, located about 400m from the Immigrations and Checkpoint Authority building at Lavender MRT.

$6 Bak Chor Mee (4.5/5). Noodles are QQ (AKA al dente). Black vinegar makes a nice contrast with noodles. Crispy salted fish bits are a nice surprise. Soup has snowflakes of pork collagen drippings. Overall it’s the best bak chor mee I’ve tried anywhere in Singapore!
