Bak Chor Mee (Mushroom & Minced Pork Noodles)

Hubby was having a craving for Bak Chor Mee ( a very common hawker dish in Singapore) & wanted me to try cooking it. I have never prepared any Bak Chor Mee before & this creation is based entirely on an experiment. I didn't refer to any recipe, just tried re-creating it based on how it's suppose to taste. And quite pleased with how it turned out & managed to satisfy my hubby's craving :)

Not too bad for a 1st attempt & think I'm going to keep it the way it is. A lot more ingredients in a bowl of noodles than when we can buy from the hawker :)

  1. hi there, i used to live in Singapore and loved eating this dish. Wondering with the chilli sauce, what sort is it? the garlic sort? or just maggi chilli sauce? Kudos on you for making it from scratch!
