Congrats to Hillstreet Tai Hwa Bak Chor Mee for winning a Michelin Star 2016!
This is perhaps one of the most famous Bak Chor Mee in Singapore. The name Tai Hwa is almost synoymous with Bak Chor Mee. Now whenever I meet Teochew Stallowners, our conversation would invariably be in Teochew, and when asked why they are so popular, the standard answer is always: “Chngee, Everyting is Chngee” (Fresh). The Teochew emphasis on freshness is cultural since the Teochew live near the river in Guandong Province. So unlike, say, SzeChuan cuisine, where emphasis is on the spices, Teochew cuisine is quite bland by comparison, emphazing instead on the freshness of the ingredients.
This is perhaps as good as a Bak Chor Mee can get! Its tasty, its fresh, its satisfying. The noodles are real QQ, the chilli shiok, the lard fresh and the black vinegar just gets your salivary glands working overtime. 4.5/5
I love the soup here. My usual fare is a big bowl of Keow Soup (Dumpling Soup) with sliced pork, minced pork and pork balls. Very satisfying and easy to digest so that you get hungry again by dinner! Just look at the density of pork protein in the soup!
Conclusion The best Bak Chor Mee in Singapore? I have not heard many protest against that claim yet!
