Ah Seng Teo Chew Minced Meat Noodle (亞誠潮州肉脞面), Hong Lim Food Centre


Ah Kow's minced meat noodle stall has ended their business. I'm not gonna miss them because I didn't have a good experience. That in spite of glowing reviews of their bak chor mee. A couple of months back, I noticed that in the unit that they used to occupy has become Ah Seng Teo Chew Minced Meat Noodle (#02-42 Hong Lim Food Centre, 531A Upper Cross Street) selling the same local minced meat noodle.

Ah Seng did significantly better in my opinion. Their mixture of sauces and chilli was deep and savoury. The vinegar wasn't potent but I guess that's just their style. This $6 bowl came with a couple of their in house wanton that had huge wings. I'm getting quite a bit of that dried sole (ti poh) flavour because the meat stuffings of the wanton, a piece of crispy one they threw in the noodles and the soup on the side had those flavours. Mee pok was well tossed and coated with their sauce.

Speaking of the soup, don't ignore it. This one had the blanket of savoury ti poh taste amidst a gentle sweetness and was robustly salted to bring out flavours. Those fishballs in the soup tender and fishy in a good way. Pleasantly surprised by that.

I like their cut chilli. If you need a bit of additional heat, these would do the job nicely.
