Popular Sim Lim Square Bak Chor Mee Has Reopened In Redhill

27th October 2023

Sim Lim Square Bak Chor Mee is now open in Redhill

If JJ Lin liked this bak chor mee (BCM) so much that he brought Jay Chou to eat here, it must be pretty good: cue Sim Lim Square Bak Chor Mee, a decades-old institution of the Bugis mall food court that unfortunately shut down last December when their lease came to an end.

P.S: The stall was featured on the Netflix show J-Style Trip, where JJ Lin shared that he’d been eating at this very stall since he was little!

Sim Lim Bak Chor Mee, or Fishball Minced Meat Noodle, as they used to be called, has been around for more than 20 years. The stall was started by Grandpa Ng who came to Singapore in 1960, and Grandma Ng, though they were less active in the stall operations towards the end of their tenure at Sim Lim Square, having passed on the baton to the next generation in their family.

After a 10-month break, their legacy has been given a new lease on life, after the affectionately named Papa Tan, according to a post on their Facebook page, found a business partner to reopen as Sim Lim Square Bak Chor Mee. This stall is now located in Lengkok Bahru, a seven-minute walk from Redhill MRT Station.

The Signature Bak Chor Mee is priced at just $4.90. Unlike your run-of-the-mill bowls of the minced meat noodles, this comes with ngoh hiang, fried house-made dumplings, fishballs, fishcake, pork slices, and mushrooms.

We can’t be sure about the new stall, but when they were previously at Sim Lim Square, everything, down to the chilli and lard, was prepared in-house. Their sauce mix is said to be on the vinegar-heavy side, so take note if you aren’t big on that!

Besides BCM, you can go for Dumpling Noodle ($3.90/$4.90) if you’re a fan of their water chestnut-studded shui jiao, or Handmade Fish Ball Noodle ($3.50/$4.50). Make any of these a set for just $1.90 extra, which gets you three dumplings—have them deep-fried, or in soup.

Otherwise, Mini Pot Noodle ($5.90) might be a more filling option, with a bowl of dry-tossed noodles and a heated mini pot of minced meat, fish- and meatballs, dumplings, ngoh hiang, and an egg in soup.

Since you’re in Redhill, check out Jia Xiang for mee siam with a 50-year history that comes with two kinds of sambal! Alternatively, get your soup fix at Michelin-approved Ah Er Soup.
