Perfect for You and MEE

chinsindeniseHello, Makan Kakis! We have a brand new foodie friend joining our rolling panel of gourmands – Lee Chin Sin, who is not only a chef (he was behind Le Bistrot for about 10 years) and a restaurant owner (Lolla & Lollapalooza), he also recently won MediaCorp’s SG50 Gift of Song Songwriting Competition. So you could say, he marries music with makan in the most successful way!

For his maiden makan recommendation, we talk about our favourite noodle dish, Mee Pok Tah – it always has to be dry, because “half of the experience is in the chilli sauce”! In Chin Sin’s opinion this place serves up the most perfectly balanced bowl of noodles – the seasoning is judicious, the noodles are expertly cooked and to use technical terminology, the fishballs are “doiing-doiing” (bouncy yet firm)! So delicious are the noodles, that Chin Sin happily rotates between mee pok, mee kia, kway teow and bee hoon – all are great – the seasoning, the sauce, the ingredients remain top-notch. You get bak chor (minced pork), fish balls, fish cake, her keow (fish dumplings), prawn and bean sprouts for a full-blown, earthy, wholesome, ideal bowl of noodles.
