Japanese Bak Chor Mee – Ah Hoe Mee Pok @ Clementi

Category : Local Singapore Food

Nested in a quiet little coffee shop @ Blk 713 Clementi West Street 2 is a mee pok stall.

Yes, you may say “Mee Pok only what, what’s so special?”

Well…nothing much I suppose, just that this very local Singaporean dish is being cooked and served by Japanese.

So explains the title, Japanese Bak Chor Mee 😉

Because Ah Hoe Mee Pok is dished out by Japanese aka non local, their mee pok is not exactly the same as the ones we’re used to having.

I can’t really pinpoint exactly what, though the 1st thing that struck me was that there’s no vinegar. So their mee pok doesn’t have the sourish vinegar punch.

And yes, I do love my mee pok with extra vinegar. So I’m a biased critic when it comes to missing vinegar. I guess that’s why I find Ah Hoe Mee Pok Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle @ S$4 a little sweet.

But then, all is not lost. Ah Hoe Mee Pok texture is spot on in its elasticity and chewiness. Aka Q-ness is just right.

The mushrooms are tender and well seasoned though their meatballs are a little tough.

I like their soup too.

What sets Ah Hoe Mee Pok aside is also its addition of abalone slices to its noodles. Their abalone slices are sweet and chewy without entering the rubbery state, which is common when it comes to abalone.

Final verdict, I don’t mind having Ah Hoe Mee Pok once in a while for a change. Maybe I could also try their other dishes too, if I (ever) get into the mood of shelling them… 😛
