Lai Heng Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle 来興香菇肉脞面 (Toa Payoh)

Kway Teow Noodles (Dry) $5
Lai Heng Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle 来興香菇肉脞面 is a very popular bak chor mee stall in Toa Payoh. They used to be located at Blk 51 but have shifted to Blk 73 in late 2018. Their relocation is good news for most foodies as it is now walking distance from Toa Payoh MRT station and Interchange.
Do not be deceive when you visit the stall and notice that there is no queue. They have adopted a queue system where you would be given a number after ordering and making payment. There is a sign next to the stall showing the number when the food is ready for collection.

I visited during lunch time on weekdays and slightly more than half an hour during each visit. Each time, the mee pok was already sold out!
Bee Tai Mak (Soup) $5
I saw many people ordering the soup version and decided to give it a try. Boy, I had no regrets. The $5 Bee Tai Mak (Soup) tasted way better than the dry chilli version.

The bowl of Bee Tai Mak came with slices of braised chinese mushroom, lean meat, minced meat, bean sprouts, seaweed, liver, pork lard and even mock abalone. This whole combination provided different combination of taste and texture to the dish. The pork lard and beansprouts gave it a crisp and crunchy dimension while the mushroom provided the soup with so much flavour. 

This is one of the best soup bak chor mee I have tried. 
Kway Teow Noodles (Dry) $5
The $5 Kway Teow Noodles (Dry) came with similar ingredients as the soup version. The bowl of soup that accompanied it tasted drastically different from the soup version of minced meat noodle. 
Kway Teow Noodles (Dry) $5
The taste of the dry minced meat noodle was average. The sauce and chilli did not combine well with the ingredients. The chilli was just very spicy and lack the fragrance. As a result, the taste of the chilli overwhelmed the other taste of the ingredients and the sauce.

Go for the soup version! That is the food to try out!
