Recently, I discovered this stall selling Teochew minced pork noodles in a coffeeshop at Seng Poh Road in Tiong Bahru. Besides the minced pork noodles stall, the other occupants of the coffeeshop houses include the well-known Loo’s Hainanese Curry Rice, a vegetarian food stall and a beverage stall.
Manned by an uncle in his sixties or perhaps seventies, the stall attracts a fairly long queue in the mornings. He told me that he has been selling noodles for 50 years in the Chinatown area and has a big group of regulars. I asked him if his stall has a name and he told me that he never thought to name his stall.
Food stalls like this one, run by the older generation of Singaporeans, is a fast-disappearing scene in Singapore.
I have been back many times. My usual order – a bowl of dry minced pork mushroom mee kia with chili and additional vinegar. Yummy $3 bowl of noodles. Closed on Thursdays.
