A bowl of bakkwa you mian from Yo Banmian

Yo Banmian (coffeeshop @ Blk 654 Yishun Ave. 4) looked no different from the numerous ban mian stalls that dot our sunny island. I'm normally not a fan except for that stall down at Toa Payoh Central which I know is good. The commonly seen soup rendition is way too hot for our weather. At least for me it is. So I got intrigued by their dry ban mian bowl with bak kwa. Yes, you heard that right. Bak kwa. It's chopped/cut into little bits like minced pork so one eats them like minced pork noodles. There's some dark soy sauce, some lard and the minced bak kwa with some vegetables and a poached egg.

And because of those ingredients the noodles were a little sweet. Interesting.
