Good Bakchormee on 23Oct2014

See my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/10/23/tai-hwa-bakchormee-at-blk-466-crawford-lane-on-23oct2014/

was at ICA for some errands. decided to walk over to tai hwa bakchormee @ blk 466 crawford lane. this the original stall from hill street 1932. time was about 11.10am. i joined the queue at no.7. no one ordered like 5 bowls or packets, so i got my bakchormee in just over 15mins. a very pleasant surprise. the stall proprietor was very polite & friendly, not the usual nazi chef! :-) well, the  S$5 tai hwa bakchormee was good. :-) noodles were qq (al dente) and tasty mixed in the sauce. ingredients minced pork, pork balls, pig liver, soi kao (fish/meat dumpling) & tipoh were good. i thought this style bakchormee had mushroom sauce, but there was none, just the very nice vinegar, chilli sauce taste. very good. overall i think i like the bakchormee at ming fa bakchormee upper thomson a bit better. close fight anyway. but after all these time, i think i now prefer the S$4 jalan tua kong meepok tar at 6th avenue. & don’t think i will wait 1/2 for this tai hwa bakchormee.

A pity if is a heritage food...need improvement.

Went over last weekend to have western Food and noticed the queue was short.
So decided to give a try and jump into the queue.
The queuing was tough....as u queue nearer to the stall, the warmer it get.
Four persons was queuing infront but takes more then 30mins.
My family had started drinking and eating the western food but i was still queuing.... As first time eating and ordering, it was really disappointing.
Firstly the lady who took my order keep repeating my order 2 to 3 times and asking whether $8 per bowl. The bowl I had was vinegar overdoused.
I do not like the taste of the base gravy, not good at all. I felt if i paid $10 for a bowl. i rather go for Ah Nam abalone noodle.
A cheaper alternative, at Pek Kio or Rochor blk, can get better BakChor noodle and with more pig liver. Not sutiable for kids, Kopi shop is in dirty condition and smokers are not far away. (Comparing to many hawker Centre i visited)

Service and system sucks

1 of the best bah chor mee where i used to find more than willing to purposely go there alone spend hours to eat,but after this bad experience I won't make such effort.was there after overnight shift since 8.30am till 9.30am got a number tag "5" sitting under the tv waiting to be called.they called number 1-3 in front of the stall but more than 10 plp rushes to stand in front of the stall so i waited.heard some shouting inside the stall but can't make out the details so i moved to join the whole bunch and reliase i missed my turn.was treated rudely by the guy who say he alrdy called until number 7 and when i told him I can't hear him,he replied rudely "i shout so loud still can't hear!!" Was really pissed in the 1st place the system sucks.no  queue control and they should shout in front of the stall not from inside.No wonder i notice lesser plp queue now.use to be  long queue most of the time but now maybe only weekends.surely won't be going to eat there anymore.

Great but not worth the wait

Was there at 1.15pm on a Sunday afternoon and waited 45minutes for my bowl of $6 noodles. Definitely one of the best bak chor mee in Singapore but I wouldn't queue 45mins again for it. Come during off peak hours to beat the queue.

Not worth the wait

For a full review, go to: https://baconmonster.wordpress.com/2014/06/15/hill-street-tai-hwa-pork-noodles/

The pork noodles were nice, but definitely not worth the 1 plus hour wait. I probably went at the wrong time, so warning: don't go at 2 plus pm on a Saturday afternoon!

I really liked the fried fish skin and dumplings, something that not every bcm stall gives. However, the vinegar taste was too strong for me and I really could not tell the difference in the noodles' texture between this stall and other stalls elsewhere. Perhaps my tastebuds are not discerning enough.
