Was in the area and lazy to wander far from home so decided to head to Ang Mo Kio for a quick dinner before heading home. Decided to have something soupy and settled for the soup version of bak chor mee at the Chai Chee Noodle Village, which always has long queues, for my meal. Plastered along the stall corner is a list of celebrities photos taken with the owner who have visited this little stall.
Now bak chor mee is noodles (flat or thin) served with minced pork, pork liver slices, sliced mushrooms, meatballs, bits of lard and a slice of lettuce. Sometimes you can order it with fried wantons as well, which I did.
It came served with some dried seaweed as garnishing as well, adding to the flavor of the soup, which is a clear broth with minced meat flavouring. Tastes really good and is easy on the stomach. The noodles are thin and springy, just the right amount of cooking done to it ad the meat balls are flavorful and juicy.
The fried wanton was served warm with minced pork filling, though the skin was abit thick for my liking. If it was thinner it would be crispier.
This would be my dinner for the night and it was filling enough to keep me from having any supper cravings. I prefer the soup version to the dried one but most of the patrons seem to order it dry. Give both a try if you have the chance to frequent it more though!
