Must Try: Tai Hwa Pork Noodle

2013-11-12 12.06.08
So today’s post will be introducing one of me and jon’s favorite place for lunch! We would ride all the way to lavender for this bowl of noodles at least once a month. (not really all the way, since lavender is quite near to town area where jon and me work/study)

To start off, perhaps a little disclaimer, or you could see it as an enticing factor: the queue is really long! They open at 0930am , so do get there by 11am or be prepared to face the lunch crowd and queue for almost 1 hour!

So yes, this is that bowl of bar chor mee (pork noodle), that heavenly bowl of noodles. The noodles are springy, chewy and firm, and it does not stick tgt. I always order mee kia (thin noodles), because it absorbs the gravy so well. And yes, the gravy.. it is fragrant and has the right balance of vinegar. Pleasantly tasty yet not too sour. Damn shiok!
(do note that this bar chor mee is not the tomato ketchup type that you buy from fish ball noodle stalls, it’s the vinegar type with no ketchup)

Now on to the ingredients.. The minced meat is tender yet firm, not those cheap and stinky kind. The dumplings are also really tasty, the skin thin yet thick enough to hold that delicious filling! Mix it with the gravy and you really have one of the best bar chor mee you can ever find! And of course, how can we not love the fried pork lard  🙂
(the bowl is has chili and hence spicy, the previous photo is the bowl without spice. i personally prefer the non-spicy one!)

And last but definitely not the least.. the meatballs! They are firm yet springy when you chew on it. It’s really world’s apart compared to the meatballs served in normal bar chor mee stalls (i presume they use processed meatballs that you can buy in the supermarkets). The meatball here is of the same standard as the best pig organ soup I always rave about! (click on the link)

Do make a trip down and try this for yourself, trust me! It’s worth the time, it’s worth the effort, it’s worth the queue, IT’S THAT GOOD!!   🙂
