It is finally official that Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle is the best Bak Chor Mee in Singapore when it was awarded one star in the inaugural Michelin Guide Singapore in July 2016. The stall started back in 1932 at Hill Street, moving to Marina Square in 1986 before settling down at Crawford Lane since 2005.
Bak Chor Mee Soup 4.2/5
The stall offers both the dry and soup version. A bowl of noodle at Tai Hwa costs $6, $8 and $10. I would recommend going for the $8 which comes brimming with ingredients. In the bowl of Bak Chor Mee Soup ($8), you can find ingredients such as meatballs, wanton, minced pork, lean pork, pork liver etc. The flavourful soup is being perfumed by the tee poh and pork lard.
Bak Chor Mee Dry 5/5
The highlight at the Michelin-starred hawker is their Bak Chor Mee Dry ($8). The al dente mee kia is firm and has an enjoyment bite. It does not have the alkaline taste at all. This is complemented by the awesome chilli and vinegar sauce which is the primary reason why there is always a snaking queue at the stall. Price may be a bit steep but with the generous serving, I think it is still quite worth it.
