Aw's Signature Minced Pork Noodles is a rather unknown stall selling a very different type of bak chor mee at Tanglin Halt Food Centre. Besides the bak chor mee, it also sells other noodle dishes such as their signature noodle, fish maw beehoon, braised pork noodle and shredded chicken hor fun. The most exciting part in the discovering of this stall is that it is run by Gen-Y stall owner.
Signature Noodle Dry 4.2/5
I had the Signature Noodle Dry ($5) which comes with a generous portion topped with ingredients such as abalone slices, fish ball, fried meatball, fish maw, pig liver, minced pork, fish dumpling, prawn and quail egg. Unlike the usual bak chor mee sauce, it tasted like the stall owner has added some braising sauce into the concoction of vinegar and chilli. It's tasted different in a good way from the usual bak chor mee. If you like you noodle to be packed with the spicy kick then this is not the type for you. It is more like a braising sauce noodle.
Fish Maw Beehoon 4.5/5
The highlight for me is actually the Fish Maw Beehoon ($4). At first glance, it looks like a bowl of lor mee but it is not. The sauce is not gooey or starchy. Instead the braised sauce gravy complemented the silky beehoon excellently. The star is the soupcon of orange coloured looking chilli that elevated the whole experience to the next level. It definitely packed a punch. I will definitely asked for more in my next visit. Similar to the signature noodle, the bowl of beehoon comes with generous serving of fried meatball, quail egg, shredded chicken, fish maw and minced pork.
Unfortunately during my visit, they are not selling the braised pork noodle. It is only available on Monday to Friday. I read that their braised pork is pretty good, hence I was looking forward to try it. While I did not get to try it, I am glad to discover the stall and I will definitely be back for more.
