Credits must also be given to the freshness of the meats, particularly the liver which is very tender.
Yes, I liked it: they kept the noodles nice and firm, and it had just the right balance of vinegar and chili (those mushrooms tasted better than they looked too).
Bak chor mee is definitely a staple for all Singapore foodies.
They are famous for their awesome char siew, which is really tasty and affordable. Their roast duck is quite popular with customers too.
Tien Lai is well-loved for serving great food at pocket friendly prices however, the icing on the cake is the warm and friendly deposition of the ladies serving me.
I was totally expecting plain rice as we didn't order any chicken rice. However, it's not as plain as expected and we sensed a touch of chicken rice flavour somewhere! Strange yet true!
If you happen to be in the area, make sure you check out Feng Zhen Lor Mee at Taman Jurong Food Centre – it will be well-worth your visit.
The grandmother's lor mee is buay pai too if you appreciate your lor mee without additional aromatics.
The texture of the rice kueh was on the soft and slightly gummy side, but was self made and had a good rice texture. The chai poh was salty rather than sweet and quite crunchy, and gave the chwee kueh a slightly different savoury profile.
Taman Jurong Chwee Kueh is a traditional stall that serves delicious handmade chwee kuehs.

De Ji Hong Kong Soy Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle serves one of the most tender and flavourful chicken I’ve ever eaten.
Service here is prompt and efficient but perhaps that is because I arrived just before the lunch crowd does.
The noodles were somewhat disappointing after the half an hour in an invisible queue. The mee kia was gummy, so much so that I worry about what the mee pok would be like. The sauce was barely there. The pork liver was powdery and the fishballs and fishcake were unremarkable and generic, although they were bouncy and had a good subtle fish flavour. They were popular though, so it could be that this is a once off poor bowl.
Ng Kee may only serve up one dish, but they certainly do it well.
The soup is nice to drink and not too heavy on msg or salt.
Leng Huat Fishball Noodle Laksa serves up a decent bowl of fishball noodles, but I felt that it lacked a certain oomph.
Leng Huat Fish Ball Noodle is another fish ball noodle stall on my list found on the same floor as Ng Kee near the escalator.
This $4 bowl is value for money and can actually be shared among two however, I would recommend getting the smaller bowls.
This plate of curry mutton noodle is really good for me and I do not mind having it again and again.
The pork used was tender and i was most amazed by the deep fried pork lard; they remained crispy even though they were soaked in the soup for beyond ten minutes! Maybe i would try asking for extra pork lard the next time i visit; but the next time, i would go for their dry bak chor mee.
