I headed to the Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee at the Eunos Crescent Market and Food Centre after I did an early morning stint at Willing Hearts where I volunteer sometimes and would request you offer some of your time when you can as they always can do with another pair of hands.

Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee

Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee

Now I love a hawker with a queue when I have the time to join one and on this occasion I made the right choice, the Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee is an absolute must if you are in the Eunos area.

What I like most about the queue is you get to chat to people and ask for a recommendation and on this occasion I lucked out, the gentleman buying his wife breakfast used to live locally and travels back to his favourite Bak Chor Mee and gave me the scoop on the place.

Take a look at the logo on the left of the sign board below, you can see a drawing of the original founder of this stall known for selling this Bak Chor Mee which at the time was not so famous but was better known as Hunch Back Noodles given his posture over the make shift stove on the side of the road.

This family business has now been around for over 100 years and with some bright rebranding I think they can go for another 100 years from here!

Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee Review

When it comes to ordering from a famous stall I always go with the default option of the most famous dish, in this case Bak Chor Mee Dry it was! It was most certainly worth the wait. The noodles were supper springy and those little golden nuggets of crispy pork fat were just delectable! The base that lights this dish up is the chili and vinegar, boom! That coupled with a light sprinkling of white pepper and some coriander gives it a pop you won’t forget in a hurry!

Soup on the side for me is often a hit and miss and here it’s a hit, you can see from the murky soup it has depth from the pork and with 3 additional dumplings that resemble goldfish I slurped those bad boys down sharpish!
