Teochew Noodles on Tanjong Katong Road

Teochew Mee Pok

I can't read the Chinese name of this stall, but it was the one selling Teochew noodles at the Keng Bee kopitiam (271 Tanjong Katong Road). We came across this by chance, as we were originally thinking of getting Eng's Noodles for breakfast, based upon a quick online search that suggested that they opened at 9 AM. That turned out to be wrong, as they didn't open until 11 AM, so we just went to the coffee shop on the corner, finding this noodle shop with a bit of a line forming.

When we got the bowl, we could see why. The noodle texture was good, and the chili sauce was awesome. It was pretty spicy, and perhaps more importantly, had a bit of a unique earthiness to it that I couldn't quite put my finger on (i.e., it wasn't cumin, Sichuan peppercorn, nor celery seeds). Either way, I liked these guys even better than the man at Zion Road. We'll be back.
