Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian 兴记肉脞面

Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian 兴记肉脞面 is a very famous minced pork noodle (soup only) stall located in Bedok which I had eaten twice last year (last visit was on 16th June 2014) but had no incentive to blog as I did not find it spectacular on both occasions.

Taste is very subjective and a few of my photography friends would only eat Xing Ji’s Rou Cuo Mian whenever we are at this food centre. For me, if they are ordering it, I will tumpang or “ride pillion” my order alongside theirs as the wait is very long!

I am not a fan of fish ball noodle soup or prawn noodle soup. I prefer dry version with good sambal any time so when I first placed my order at Xing Ji, I was taken aback. The stallholder’s assistant immediately became aware that I’m a newbie.

“We only have soup version. Just let me know you want big or small and table number, that’s all.”

Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian 兴记肉脞面 sells only soup version of Bak Chor Mee.
Seng Hiang, the stall with red signboard, sells both soup and dry.

Minced Pork Noodle Soup – S$2.50 to S$3

Why this bowl of noodle did not wow me? While I’ve always equate fats with flavour, I found the soup too oily for my liking surprisingly. My mouth felt slathered with some greasy lip balm during eating. The meatballs were okay and pretty standard factory produced – I could be wrong. The minced pork lack texture – too soft. And their crime? They did not have chilli padi, only the big red chilli which had no kick to it, I felt like I was eating fruits.

Of course, this Bak Chor Mee (BCM) dish wasn’t all bad. After all, they do have a large fan base as experienced by the long queue/waiting time. But like I said, taste is subjective and having had it twice without oomph, my personal taste is different from Xing Ji’s die-hard fans. Perhaps I’m a die-harder fan of dry version?

You must be wondering what made me dig up this old folder containing Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian 兴记肉脞面’s photos to blog now. You’ll know in upcoming post (wink wink).

Have a great Thursday!

Update: I was wrong about not blogging on Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian 兴记肉脞面 before. I double-checked and found I did a review on them in June 2014. Click here to my previous review.
