Do You Love Mee?

When you have a fever, you consume Panadol. When you are thirsty, and crave for a fizzy drink, you drink Coca-Cola. When you want a fast and quick meal, you frequent McDonalds. And in Singapore, when you are hungry at night and feel like eating noodles for supper, you head for Bedok 85 Bak Chor Mee. Slowly but surely, these “SuperBrands are slowly becoming representative for the product category that they belong in. However amidst these “SuperBrands”, there are always worthy competitors. And under the local Bak Chor Mee category, there lurked the Chai Chee Noodle Village. It is reported that this noodle chain owns 14 outlets islandwide, of which six open 24 hours. Providentially, I have one such chance to visit one of the outlets in the wee hours of the night, and get the chance to taste the soup, which is famed for being prepared by 18 ingredients. Along with the noodles, we also ordered the beancurd with mincemeat, which goes well with the chilli sauce that comes along with it. But above all, it was the noodles that I enjoyed most. With its generous amount of pig liver, mincemeat and mushrooms alongside the most critical element in Teochew-style Bak Chor Mee - the Dark Vinegar - the noodle is definitely a strong contender in the category of Super Mee.
