Jalan Tua Kong Lau Lim

Back to the popular place for BCM in Bedok where we used to have frequently last time. The signage was seen to be brighter and since we were rather early, there was no queue at all.

Mee Pok with Chilli and Ketchup topped with a handful of ingredients like lean meat, minced meat, fishballs, fish cakes, beansprouts and prawns. The Noodles were springy and the fishballs were bouncy.

Mee Pok Dry - $7.50 (Big)

A $2 difference between the bigger and the smaller portion. Comparing the previous picture, there is a different amount of ingredients in the bowl and also an absence of prawns in the smaller bowl.

Mee Kia - $7.50 (Small)

The taste of the soup is still to my liking and likewise for the style of their noodles still fit me all these years.

One of the popular hot spots in Bedok area for its Mee Pok and Kway Teow Mee. Occupying 2 stall space of the coffeeshop and with one similar branch steps away, they are consider quite big.

Well known for its long waiting time, this is no deterrence to their faithful supporters and even so tables are usually filled up in the coffee shop over the weekends.

Waiting Queue

The bigger portion of Bak Chor Mee has more ingredients, such as additional fishballs and prawns.

Mee Kia (Big) - $6

Standards have a vast difference as compared to the very first time I visited them. The noodles are moist but the soup & food tasted bland this round. I can no longer reminisce about the old-school days time over a hot bowl of Bah Chor Mee.

Mee Pok (Medium) - $5

The portions and pricing are too pricy to determine such a bowl of Bah Chor Mee. Although Lau Lim has its own style in the bowl of bah chor mee, we can better portions and value worth the money else where.
