Heartlands bak chor mee with particular fried fishballs

As somebody who loves languages however doesn’t converse Chinese language, I exploit dish names as little language classes. So, bak chor mee— actually, minced meat noodles— is useful because it tells me what I’m consuming. (In the meantime, one thing like Buddha Jumps Over the Wall is just not so useful)

So, I knew what I used to be in for after I heard of Sin Kian Heng Bak Chor Mee at 22 Sin Ming Highway. The truth is, it’s proper subsequent door to Serangoon BBQ & Curry, which we beloved after we visited in April. Would Sin Kian Heng dwell as much as the Sin Ming Highway hype?

Sin Kiang Heng - stall

What I attempted at Sin Kian Heng

Deciding to attempt what a number of different folks appeared to be consuming, I ordered a bowl of Minced Meat Noodles (S$4/S$5) within the bigger dimension. There have been a few folks forward of me in queue and it took about 10 minutes to be served, which was a bit longer than I’d have thought. However when my order did come, it introduced its arrival with a good looking aroma.

In my bowl, there have been 3 fishballs, 2 medium-sized items of fish cake, about 5 slices of mushroom, 5 items of sliced pork and fairly a big portion of minced pork. Even with out the noodles, it seemed like a fairly large portion.

Sin Kiang Heng - soup

The broth contributed to the aroma, too. It was brimming with minced pork and sliced scallion and I couldn’t assist however take a sip even earlier than I attempted the noodles. Good selection, as a result of it was wealthy and flavourful. The bits of pork have been comfortable and absorbed the broth very properly.

Pulling up a spoonful of noodles, I additionally obtained a fishcake and a sliced mushroom. The noodles have been springy and cooked good. I’m not a really large chilli fan so I had requested them to go straightforward on that ingredient. Nonetheless, the little bit that was included had a contact of fireplace to it. Extra importantly, it was well-spiced and added to the style of the dish. I desire this strategy to the ‘simply burn your tongue’ one the place the chilli distracts from and overwhelms all the opposite elements.

I’m sorely tempted to say that the fishballs have been the spotlight of the bowl. Mild and really springy, their browned pores and skin tells you they’ve been fried. Sin Kian Heng apparently will get its fishballs contemporary on daily basis however they’re then fried within the stall’s personal particular oil earlier than making their manner into your bowl. This little twist makes such a distinction!

My 2 fish cake slices have been simply good, nothing particular that I can say. Nonetheless, along with all the opposite elements such because the minced pork and sliced pork, they added to the ‘fullness’ of the meal. I say that as a result of each chunk I took proper up until the time I completed had a really good noodle-meat stability. Plenty of stalls offer you extra noodles than vital and you’re anticipated to ration the opposite elements to maintain them going until the top. Not so right here, luckily.

Last ideas

My go to to Sin Kian Heng was totally satisfying and I want I had an even bigger tummy so I may attempt extra than simply the Minced Meat Noodles.

Whereas I selected the essential Minced Meat Noodles, Sin Kian Heng presents a variety of add-ons, too. Watching the gang, it appears the Braised Trotters (S$2), Braised Intestines (S$2) and Braised Hen Toes (S$2) are the preferred add-ons.

The bestseller among the many full bowls is Braised Pork Trotter (S$6), however you may also ask for Meatball Soup (S$6). Based mostly on how good the fishballs have been, I’ll undoubtedly attempt the Meatball Soup the subsequent time I’m right here.

Sin Kiang Heng - braising pot

All of the braised gadgets on the menu, together with the mushrooms are cooked in an enormous pot proper on the entrance of the stall. I beloved watching the complete pot steaming away because the broth simmered inside, and all of the add-ons in addition to bones for flavour jockeying for place on the high. The scent of spices and cooked meat added to the expertise.

Anticipated harm: S$5 – S$12 per pax
