Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles @ Marsiling Mall Food Centre - Famous Bak Chor Mee Re-opens In Woodlands


A regret I have is not able to try Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles when it was at Serangoon Road. When I heard that the Uncle Yap has come out of retirement and open a new stall at Marsiling Mall Food Centre, I simply just have to drag my lazy feet to the North. No more regret and it is definitely worth the trip.

Mee Pork Dry 4.5/5

I tried the Mee Pok Dry ($4.50) which comes with minced pork, braised mushroom, fish cake slices and pig liver. It may look like an ordinary bowl of noodle but what binds all these ingredients together is the sauce and the doneness of the noodle's texture. Making each mouthful a slurping enjoyment.


Besides mee pok, you can order a variety of noodles such as mee kia, mee tai mak and mee sua. Incidentally, we discovered that the mee sua goes very well with the sauce. It soaked the vinegary sauce better, with the tanginess coming through more. I will order mee sua next time.


Not forgetting the bowl of soup. It is packed with flavours that are boiled over 3 to 4 hours with old hens, soybeans and anchovies. If you want to really enjoy the soup, I would recommend ordering either the Bak Chor Mee Soup or Xiao Wan Mian (小碗面).


I am glad that Uncle Yap decides to reopen his stall, and I can get to taste his delicious bowl of noodles. Hopefully don't leave any regret like me, go and check it out. Just in case he decides to retire again. By the way, I heard through the grapevine that they are opening another outlet in Serangoon, 1.5 km away from their old stall.

Yan Ji Wei Wei Seafood Soup @ Woodlands Centre Food Centre - Famous Woodlands Seafood Soup


This has been a much over due visit. I have always wanted to visit Yan Ji Wei Wei Seafood Soup at Woodlands Centre Food Centre near the Woodlands Checkpoint but the distance to the far north is just too discouraging. But for the seek of good food, I just have to make the long journey to taste the bowl of seafood soup myself.

Seafood Soup 4.5/5

Having tried AS Seafood Soup, I am quite eager to try the difference and compare them. The seafood soup comes in three pricing, $6, $8 and $10. I ordered the Seafood Soup ($10) which comes with crayfish. The stall also offers other variety such as Promfret Fish Seafood Soup and Grouper Seafood Soup. You can even add fish maw for an additional cost.

Seafood Soup 4.5/5

Compared with AS Seafood Soup, both stalls use the same ingredients for the delectable bowl of seafood soup. There are crayfish, prawns, dory fish and minced pork. However Yan Ji seafood soup is a notch better because the soup is more robust and intense.

Pig Trotter 3.8/5

Besides the seafood soup, we also ordered the Pig Trotter ($7) to try. For the pricing, this is consider quite a huge portion. I like variety for my meal, hence this is a good addition on top of the seafood soup to go with my bowl of rice.


The question is whether it is worth making the trip to try Yan Ju Wei Wei Seafood Soup. In my opinion, it is worth it. I have not known of another place that does such a delicious bowl of seafood soup, that is packed with rich intense flavours. The closest competitor would be AS Seafood Soup but it is still a notch behind.
