Slurp in Singapore: Hong Lim Food Centre

Hong Lim Food Centre is situated pretty much in the heart of Chinatown.  We actually walk our way there from Chinatown market and although it looks far from the map, but then again, its always a short walk  🙂  There were road renovations around that area, so we gotta figure how to cross the road etc.  🙂

You may have read about Barcook Bakery from my previous post, and its also situated at Hong Lim Food Centre.  Anyway, Hong Lim is just like any other food court that you see all over Singapore, and they provide plenty of choices.  🙂 But our tummy can only eat that much.  LOL  😛

Let’s see what we had.  🙂  First of all is this stall #02-43 known as Ah Kow Mushroom Minced Pork Mee.  Minced Pork Mee is also known as “Bak Chor Mee” in Hokkien.  So we ordered a bowl, and well, its worth the try but if you don’t really like vinegar, please do tell them cos their vinegar is one of their signature taste in the mee.  Oh, and there is free flow of pork lard if you like.  🙂

Like I said, free flow of pork lard

Soup with Seaweed

And the Bak Chor Mee

Next, then we went to stall #02-68 known as The Old Stall Hokkien Street Famous Hokkien Prawn Mee.  The prawn mee is the soup version ala Penang style but with a twist.  🙂 The prawn mee is served with their “specially made delicious soup” and with their famous chilli powder.  🙂

Oh and there is this stall next to the prawn mee, there is this uncle (he looks pretty grouchy to me on that day), he serve quite nice Yau Char Kwai tossed rojak style.  TRy it  🙂

So drop by if you are there and let me know if there is any other nice food there, I’m sure there is.  🙂
