This new noodle kopitiam stall at KopiWU started operations on 18 April 2024. It’s helmed by Kelvin Chuah, who used to be the executive chef of Hatten Hotel Melaka and other establishments in countries like Taiwan, Cambodia and Indonesia.

In 1984, Kelvin’s senior old chef taught him the ropes on how to prepare a good Teochew noodle. When he was working at Melaka, he hardly had the chance to showcase what he had learnt due to the scarcity of the Teochew community living there.

The menu mainly consists of 5 noodle dishes, which all costs S$4.50 for a small portion and S$5.50 for those who have a larger appetite. The Lai Fu Bak Chor Mee contains a truckload of ingredients like minced pork, slices of fishcake, pork slices, pig liver, black mushroom pieces, wanton, fishball and meatball.

If you’re not a fan of bak chor mee, not to worry. There’s also Fishball Noodles and Laksa. For something crispy and sinful, order the Pork Chop Noodle which arrives with a golden-brown breaded slab of pork chop, served with your choice of noodles. The Fried Pork Chop (S$3) is also available as a side order.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Ipoh Hor Fun Soup is perfect for those who want something light and heartwarming. For something a little extra, you can also throw in a plate of Fried Wanton (S$3) or Handmade Vegetarian Fishcake (S$3).

The soup served on the side is boiled using pork bones and seaweed, producing a naturally sweet and umami broth.

This spot is just 3 bus stops from home, and I can’t wait to try it!
