Guan's Mee Pok (阿源麵薄), Capitol Piazza

Guan's Mee Pok (阿源麵薄), Capitol Piazza

Have been wanting to come over to Guan's Mee Pok since they've setup an entire space of their own (#B1-55 Capitol Piazza, 3 Stamford Road). Previously they used to be a stall in the Food Republic a stone's throw away. The menu has gotten bigger so we tried some of the stuff that they didn't have in the past. Or at least we didn't recall them having.

Like the mee pok with prawn paste balls. Loved the clean heat and tanginess from their chilli and vinegar. Texture of the noodles also held up well too. Those prawn paste balls were not bad tasting but they were also nothing we'd be looking forward to coming back for either.

There's crispy eel mee pok which looked good on the menu.

The actual fried eels had a thicker and crustier breading. Eels also tasted a little fishy. We got the sensing that they aren't great with fried stuff and we're definitely going to avoid them in the future. Does that mean that we'll be coming back?  Sure. For the mee pok and none of the fried things.

Tasted like how I remembered it from the last time we had them. Nice.

Some crunchy nai bai with chilli and fried lard? Yes please.

They were giving away a couple of fried prawn paste wings for some of the noodles we ordered. Edible. On hindsight, I wouldn't have paid for these knowing how they tasted. Ponggol Nasi Lemak just a few steps away makes much better regular ones.
