10 Bak Chor Mee Stalls In Singapore You Must Try, Including Traditional And Japanese-Inspired BCM

1st July 2024

Bak chor mee in Singapore

Hands up if you could have bak chor mee every day for the rest of your life. There’s just something addictive about slurping mee pok, braised mushrooms, and minced pork that’s tossed in a heavenly mix of black vinegar, lard oil, pork stock, fish sauce, and chilli.

I, for one, am eternally grateful to the person who discovered this magical combination. Although bak chor mee is attributed to early Teochew immigrants to Singapore, this is a dish that’s uniquely Singaporean. This humble bowl of noodles can be found in almost every kopitiam, but here’s our shortlist of 10 stalls worth a try.

1. Xiang Xiang Traditional Bak Chor Mee


Xiang Xiang Traditional Bak Chor Mee in Kallang is known for serving up traditional bak chor mee with collagen soup that’s simmered for hours every day. If it’s your first time here, we recommend getting the Traditional Minced Pork Noodles ($4/$5/$6), a signature dish well-loved by many regulars. This comforting bowl features noodles of your choice topped with meatballs, minced meat, and pork lard submerged in a robust collagen broth. Those who appreciate innards in your bak chor mee can opt for the Sweet Intestine Noodle ($6/$7) instead! Besides the usual ingredients, this dish comes with pig skin and intestines.

2. No. 25 Minced Meat Noodle


For bak chor mee with a fun twist, head to No. 25 Minced Meat Noodle, where you can enjoy a rich tonkotsu-inspired soup. Their Signature Minced Meat Noodle ($9/$11/$13) is the most popular item on the menu; it comes with a bowl of minced meat noodles and another with their famous soup. In case you were wondering, the creamy soup is the result of boiling and simmering pork bones and chicken feet for more than eight hours. Pair this with the minced meat noodles, which come with Taiwan meatballs and Fuzhou fish balls to make your meal extra hearty and tasty.

3. Jin Xi Lai Mui Siong Minced Meat Noodle


Jin Xi Lai Mui Siong Minced Meat Noodle has been around for more than 50 years, and they are best known for serving up really good pork liver soup alongside bak chor mee. A bowl of noodles here costs $5.50 or $6.50: you get a generous amount of dry noodles tossed in a house-made sauce and topped with chunks of pork lard. There’s also a separate bowl of soup to go with your noods, starring fishballs, fishcakes, sliced pork, and liver.

4. Minced Pork Bros


At Minced Pork Bros, bak chor mee takes on a modern look with the additions of ajitsuke eggs and ikura. If you’re iffy about this combination, their Teochew Modern Pork Noodles ($6) is a good place to start: a bowl of your regular bak chor mee is joined by half an ajitsuke tamago, a piece of abalone, and a Teochew-style meatball. Take it one step further with their Seafood Minced Pork Noodles ($6), which features a bunch of delicious seafood treats, including a prawn, scallop, ikura, and fish dumplings. FYI, Minced Pork Bros is in the midst of renovation until late September or early October 2024. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates on their Instagram page!

There are currently eight branches in Singapore, with the OG stall located at Hong Lim Food Centre. Do note that there’s only bak chor mee in three sizes here: $6, $8, or $10.

6. Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle

Winning a Michelin Star did no favours for the waiting time at this bak chor mee stall. Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles has been around since the 1930s, and is said to be the OG creator of this dish. We’ve heard of people waiting two hours for a bowl here! Prices start from $6, but we recommend going for the $8 or $10 bowls to make the queueing worth. The liver is said to be fresh and cooked just right. We also appreciate the handmade dumplings and meatballs.

Macpherson Minced Meat Noodle is helmed by the adorable Uncle Yap, who makes his bowls of bak chor mee tirelessly from scratch each day. Fans love the balance of savoury, sour, and spice in his noodles, with a punch of umami from his braised mushrooms. A bowl of minced meat noodles here costs $5, with the option to add extra ingredients such as braised pig trotters or chicken feet, if they’re available.

8. Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee

This family-run business has been around for over three generations, and dishes up bak chor mee around the clock. A bowl of Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle ($4.50) comes with mushrooms, mince, and pink-hued liver, but the Specialty Mee Sua ($4.50) is where the money’s at. The absorbent noodle is a great base for the flavoursome sauce, which clings to every inch of the mee sua.

Li Yuan Mee Pok, previously known as Ah Li Mee Pok, made waves when they first opened as it was run by Mr. Naoji Kuribara, a Japanese chef. He spent half a year learning how to make bak chor mee from the original Ah Hoe Mee Pok before taking over the shop! Besides the traditional Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle (from $5), the stall’s offerings are influenced by Japanese ramen. The Japanese Fusion Mee Pok series features a Miso/Shoyu ($7) bak chor mee.

The bak chor mee (from $5) at Lai Heng Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle is popular enough that you have to get a queue number and wait for your bowl after you’ve paid. Social media is rife with images of noodles liberally sprinkled with lard because here, it’s free for all. As you help yourself to the freshly fried, crispy lard and chilli, here’s a hack: get a soft-boiled egg from the drinks stall to mix into the noodles for extra richness.
