Ah Hoe Mee Pok 啊和面薄

There was apparently a hype over this mee pok when it was published on the Straits Times on October 11th, 2015. However before the article was published, I sent my dad the address of this mee pok for him to try. When my parents could finally go down, it was when the article was already published. Hence there was a terrible queue. You queue to order from the Japanese lady, pay and take a number. You will then be given an electronic beeper to inform you of your collection when your order is ready. This took my dad one hour. Then he sat down to wait for the beeper to ring that took another hour. Who would ever imagine eating a bowl of mee pok to take two hours other than the famous Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle?

This was the queue from Blk 713 branch run by the wife and their son.  The father and daughter run the first stall at Blk 710.

#5 Teo Chew Dumpling Soup

More than a month later, today, there was no visible queue. But it still took about 15-20 minutes for my kuay tiao to arrive. It was a pleasant surprise to see it filled to the brim of the bowl. I liked the soup so much I finished every drop of it. The kuay tiao was smooth and the minced pork was to my liking. The soup was hot and every ingredient including the wong ah bak was hot. Would love to have this comfort food near me but too bad, it is too far away. Hope to come back soon!
