Ah Kow Mushroom Minced Pork Mee
I noticed these guys last time we were at Hong Lim Food Centre while visiting one of Tai Wah's other outlets. Whoa - another bak chor mee place in the same complex as Tai Wah? And with much longer lines and a full Makansutra rating? This I had to check out (531A Upper Cross Street #02-43).
I can see why people like Ah Kow. It's the vinegar. They use a lot of it, making their bowls even more accentuated than Tai Wah's. Given a recent discussion about the use of vinegar in these things, one might think that would tip the scales in favor of Ah Kow. But I'm still a huge fan of how Tai Wah does its extra tasty meatballs and wantons.
Honestly, it's a tough call between the two. But waiting in line for Ah Kow is not worth it in my opinion. In that sense, I'm still going to Tai Wah.
