In an official Yan Kee (炎记) Noodle House facebook page post back last year, it announced that it has moved out of BK Eating House and will be reopening at a new premises on 29 August 2018. According to several online articles, it seems that landlord and ex-tenant got into some form of disagreement. It must be so bad that Yan Kee decided to open their new stall right across their previous landlord.
Dry Bak Chor Mee Sua 4.2/5
As I am in the vicinity, I decided to check out Yan Kee at its new premise. Now Yan Kee took up the whole shop house opposite its previous location, having the whole for itself. The bowl of Dry Bak Chor Mee Sua still comes with minced pork, lean pork, meatball, mushroom, ikan bilis and lots of vinegar.
Great to see that Yan Kee still maintains its consistency, the golden standard of not overcooking the mee sua so it will not be gluey and soggy, retaining a delightful bite. At the same time soaking up the tang of the fragrant vinegar.
So do remember that the original Yan Kee has already moved out of BK Eating House and opened just right across the road. Don't be misled by the old signage that the previous tenant has took over to serve the same thing.
