Ah Hoe Mee Pok (阿和面薄) @ Clementi West Street 2

IMG_2477ed

If the East has Bedok 85 Bak Chor Mee, Central has Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Pork Noodles, I would proudly say we at the West has Ah Hoe Mee Pok (阿和面薄). Recently, Ah Hoe Mee Pok has gotten some attention from the blogsphere not just because of the Japanese behind the stall cooking the mee pok but its delicious bowl of mee pok cooked to a nice al dente too.

Some interesting fact about Ah Hoe Mee Pok. In the early days, Mr Kuribaba started a Japanese stall at the current coffeeshop beside Ah Hoe Mee Pok. Fascinated by the way Mr Eric Chia cooked his mee pok, Mr Kuribaba who used to work in a ramen stall in Japanese started apprenticing at Ah Hoe Mee Pok for half a year before taking over the stall in January 2015. He then closed his own Japanese stall. Currently Mr Kuribaba runs the stall with his daughter at block 710 while his son and wife runs another stall at block 713 just a few blocks away.

Special Mee Pok Dry  3.5/5

At Ah Hoe Mee Pok, there are a few selections on their menu. Customers have a choice of ordering the Special Mee Pok Dry/Soup ($4/$5), Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle ($4/$5), Crayfish Mee Pok ($10), Meatball Soup ($3) or Teochew Dumpling Soup ($4)

I have a bowl of the Special Mee Pok Dry ($4) which comes with a prawm, meatballs, abalone slices, minced pork and pork slices. The highlight in the bowl has to be the al dente mee pok that is cooked to a nice springy bite. However I find that the chilli sauce lacked the kick I was expecting and the vinegar does not have that tanginess.

Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle Soup 4.5/5

To me the best try at Ah Hoe Mee Pok is not their dry noodles but their soup version. I would highly recommend trying the Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle Soup ($4). First, I think the soup version showcases the springy mee pok even more.

Second, the soup was flavourful and robust. If Seng Kee's soup hits you like a tank with the rich Ti Poh (dried sole fish) flavour, Ah Hoe's soup base is more refine and balance. I felt that this is because of the addition of cabbage, giving it that harmony.

  1. Definitely will try their soup one next time :-D Actually can add their home blended sauce for a bit of tanginess. I like their tangy sauce very much.

  2. This place is certainly worth exploring. I enjoy their specially prepared sauce which should be added to the soup.
