12 must-try Bak Chor Mee stalls to tick off your bucket list

Bak chor mee (肉脞面) literally means “minced meat and noodles” in Teochew and I personally love how fuss-free and easy it is. Don’t know what to eat? Bcm it is. But some are so passionate about it that they have whole google map pages dedicated to it!

Whether you’re a fan of the soup or dry version, here are 12 must try bak chor mee stalls to tick off your bucket list.

1. Lai Heng Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle (来興香菇肉脞麺)

Lai Heng Mushroom - Strorefront

Lai Heng Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle (来興香菇肉脞麺) has been serving up bowls of goodness for almost 3 decades and have many loyal customers. They are known for their old-school bcm that goes hard on the vinegar and shiok chilli.

Bak Chor Mee - Lai Heng Mushroom Storefront

The stall actually made headlines in 2022 when they announced that they were planning to retire! Thankfully, they are still going strong and you can treat yourself to their signature Mushroom Bak Chor Mee (S$5/S$6/S$7). It comes packed with plenty of ingredients and lard (on request!). The noodles are also extremely QQ and you can select from noodles other than the usual mee pok and mee kia.

While they are known for the dry version of the dish, some say that the soup bcm here is even better than the dry version— guess there’s no need to travel all the way to the East to get your soup bcm fix.

2. Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee

Famous Eunos BCM - Storefront

Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee can be traced way back to 1923, and all the soup-based bak chor mee are said to originate from here.

Famous Eunos BCM - Soup

Behold, a bowl of Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee (Soup) (S$4.50) in its full glory. Each bowl comes with an abundance of ingredients and even includes dumplings! The heaps of minced meat and fried lard pack the soup with loads of flavour. You’ll be sure to down it in no time.

Famous Eunos BCM - Noodles

While the store is famous for the soup version of their dish, don’t miss out on the dry version, either. The Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee (Dry) (S$4.50) features a blend of black sauce and chilli that is sure to curb all your bcm cravings.

3. Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian

Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian - Storefront

If you like bak chor mee, you must have heard of Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian. They’re known for being one of the OG stalls for soup bcm and serve quite the hearty bowl of it.

Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian - Noodles

To be perfectly honest, I’ve only ever had this for supper rather than for an actual meal. But their bcm would fit the bill at any time of day. Each bowl of bcm (S$3.50/S$S4.50) comes with mee kia, plenty of meat balls and clear, flavourful pork broth. The red chilli that’s added ties everything together for an ultra satisfying meal.

The star of the dish would have to be the soup: robust and slightly sweet, there’s something about it that can’t quite be replicated.

If you’ve yet to try it for yourself, don’t be fooled by the humble appearance of their bcm. It packs a punch and is extremely comforting and hearty. If I lived in Bedok, I’d go broke from getting these noodles every day!

4. Seng Hiang Bak Chor Mee

Seng Hiang Bak Chor Mee - Storefront

If you visit Bedok 85 for the first time, and are looking for soup bcm, you might get slightly confused. Seng Hiang Bak Chor Mee can be found right beside Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian and they both sell the same type of soup bcm. The defining difference between the two stalls, though, is that Seng Hiang Bak Chor Mee also sells the dry version of the dish.

Bak Chor Mee - Seng Hiang Bak Chor Mee, Noodles

While both stalls sell very similar versions of soup bcm, they cater to a slightly different crowd. The soup bcm here is S$3.50 and S$4.50, much like Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian.

The broth in Seng Hiang’s version of the dish is more heavily seasoned and garlicky than their neighbour’s. Having tried both versions, I’d say go for this version if you want something with a stronger taste profile.

5. Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle

Tai Hwa - Storefront

Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle at Crawford Lane is probably one of the most celebrated bcm stalls in Singapore and even have a One Michelin Star to their name. Customers often have to queue up to 2 hours just to get a taste of their bcm!

Tai Hwa Pork Noodle - Bak Chor Mee

A bowl of dry bcm is priced at S$6, S$8 and S$10. The noodles are seasoned with the perfect balance of salty, sweet and vinegary goodness.

The ample ingredients are to-die-for, and each bowl is topped with crispy flat fish for an additional layer of umami and texture. If you are willing to brave the queue, you will certainly be rewarded with a great bowl bcm from this legendary stall.

6. 58 Minced Meat Noodle

58 Minced Meat Noodle Taman Jurong - Area

58 Minced Meat Noodle is located within Taman Jurong Market & Food Centre and I must admit… it’s not the most accessible. But for their bcm, perhaps the journey to the West would very well be worth it.

58 Minced Meat Noodle Taman Jurong - Noodle

They offer three sizes: S$4 for small, S$5 for medium and $S6 for large. What stands out at this store would no doubt be how generous they are with their ingredients. Just look at the amount of minced meat and liver!

58 Minced Meat Noodle Taman Jurong - Spoonful

Everything is cooked to perfection and their special chilli made with haebi really elevates the dish.

While I prefer mee kia with my bcm, I recommend going for mee pok here instead. Somehow the thicker mee pok noodles pair much better with their full-bodied sauce.

7. Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles

Macpherson Minced Meat - Storefront

Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles is yet another store that’s raved about. Much like the acclaimed Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles, the queues here can last over an hour.

Macpherson Minced Meat Dry - Bak Chor Mee

Minced Meat Noodle (Dry) (S$5) is vinegary and drenched with a delicious soy-based sauce. The version of bak chor mee here is extremely flavourful and never disappoints!

If you like lard, though, Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles probably would not be the best place to go to. While the bcm was a great all-rounder bowl, more lard would definitely elevate it even further.

Mahpherson Minced Meat - Soup Bak Chor Mee

If you’re a fan of soup bcm (S$5), the one here is slightly different from the versions over at Bedok 85. The pork broth is extremely rich and full bodied from hours of simmering, and has a slightly cloudy appearance. The more robust soup pairs perfectly with mee pok and the abundance of perfectly-cooked ingredients is pure bliss.

8. Jin Xi Lai (Mui Siong) Minced Meat Noodle

mui siong - Storefront

If you want bcm with a unique twist, Jin Xi Lai (Mui Song) Minced Meat Noodle is the place to go. You’ll be in for glorious bowls of liver-filled goodness.

mui siong - food

Admittedly, the standout at Jin Xi Lai (Mui Song) is their Pork Liver Soup (S$5) and Pork Liver Noodles (S$4/S$5/S$6) rather than their bak chor mee. The liver is cooked to creamy perfection and is not powdery in the least. If you like liver, the stall is definitely one to keep an eye out for: the amount of liver is impressive.

The dry bcm (S$5.50/S$6.50) here comes with plenty of lard and ingredients, too, including the delicious liver. I dare say Jin Xi Lai (Mui Siong) would be able to convert all organ haters with their delicious organ-filled fare.

9. Ru Ji Kitchen

Ru Ji Kitchen - Storefront

Ru Ji Kitchen in fact started with selling fish ball noodles, and then bak chor mee. They have quite a few stores all over Singapore and are popular for their chubby meatballs and fish balls.

Ru Ji - Food

If you choose to get bcm from here, definitely get the chilli version: the combination of lard and chilli with the QQ mee pok is absolutely delicious.

Ru Ji Soup

The fish balls and meatballs here are handmade and ultra bouncy. The meatballs are extremely large and pairs great with their clean-tasting and refreshing soup. If you are a fan of handmade fish balls and meatballs, Ru Ji Kitchen is the place to visit!

10. Hock Lai Seng Teochew Fishball Bak Chor Mee

Hock Lai Seng - Storefront

While Hock Lai Seng Teochew Fishball Bak Chor Mee may not have a long history like many on this list, they sure serve up a solid bowl of bak chor mee.

Hock Lai Seng - Bak Chor Mee

The dry bcm here costs S$4.50 and you can get it with soup at S$6. The S$4.50 bowl comes with loads of vinegar, ketchup, sambal, mushroom braised sauce and pork lard. The mixture of sauces are in perfect harmony and make for a perfectly-balanced bowl of noodles.

Hock Lai Seng - Ingrediants

The stall is also really generous with their ingredients and the sinful chunks of lard are a real delight here. For S$4.50, you really get bang for your buck. Don’t miss out on this gem!

11. JOFA Mee Pok

Bak Chor Mee- JOFA Mee Pok

Here comes a real trendy bcm stall, JOFA Mee Pok. Just look at its neon blue and yellow signboard!

Bak Chor Mee - JOFA Mee Pok Noodles

Apart from regular bcm, their Signature Minced Meat Noodles (S$6/S$8) is buffed up with premium ingredients like abalone, scallops and clams. It certainly looks more luxurious than your standard bowl of bak chor mee!

JOFA Mee Pok Noodle Lift

While the glammed version of their bcm is certainly interesting, their regular Minced Meat Noodles (S$4.50) is good enough, too. The sauce is delightfully vinegary and goes great with the springy noodles.

For those that can’t take spice, this would also be the bcm for you. The chilli is flavourful, yet mild-enough for those with a low spice tolerance to enjoy.

12. My Father’s Minced Meat Noodles

My Fathers Minced Meat Noodles - Storefront

I’m not sure why, but most of the soup bcm stalls are located in the East. My Father’s Minced Meat Noodles is another one for the list, and they serve up delicious, flavourful bowls of soup bcm.

My Fathers Minced Meat Noodles - BCM

The soup bak chor mee (S$4/S$5/S$6) here is lighter tasting than the ones at Bedok 85, but somehow still hits hard in flavour. The QQ noodles are accompanied by juicy wantons as well as pork balls and topped with plenty of crunchy pork lard.

If you choose to get the dry version (S$4.50/S$5.50/S$6.50) instead, it also comes with a bowl of the same delicious soup with both meatballs and wantons, too. Either way, you’ll leave feeling immensely satisfied.
