Minced Pork Noodles @ Blk 85 Bedok North
As we have supper rather frequently, we keep a lookout for new places which serve food that is good and cheap. One night, stumped for a place to spend time together and have little chit chats, the boy remembered good reviews on the hawker food in Bedok that he had come across recently on the internet. The only thing was, he didn't remember exactly where in Bedok. Thus we drove blind around Bedok, and came to block 85 which was still bustling at 11pm.
I didn't find the food at this hawker centre appealing, but seeing that one stall had put up newspaper cuttings featuring their food as well as the awards they received, I decided to give it a try. They were selling mince pork noodles, which isn't uncommon, except that the meat is ground to the consistency of puree, and cooked by simply pouring hot soup over it and letting it stand for however long it took for the noodles to cook. Although I have an issue with eating pork cooked this way, I must admit that it melts in your mouth and is really addictive. Topped with a spoonful of cut red chillies, it was difficult for me to resist going back for more.
