Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle

Finally found the appropriate time to visit this famous BCM stall after reading it on Derrick's post last year and watching the recent season of "Makan Places Lost and Found" has refreshed my memory of this place. 

Filled with the usual ingredients like the minced pork, braised mushrooms, pig liver, the bowl of mee kia dry $4  is an appetizing mix of flavours with a touch of acidity. What perks up this all-time favourite is the use of bian yu (sole fish), which makes the soup stock extra aromatic. 

Somehow the same flavours did not emerged as strongly for the bowl of Pork Ribs Mee Pok Dry $4 . But still, we love the tender flesh of the soft-braised ribs that is flanked by some delicate, chewy collagen. And of course, the crispy pork lard fritters will not be missed. 
Pork Ribs Mee Pok Dry $4
Fish Maw Soup $4 was rather pedestrian and one can't get the soft runny egg because it has turned into a scrambled mess, entangled with the seaweed and minced pork. The queue wasn't as long Tai Hwa BCM but some may argue that the flavours were not as robust as Tai Hwa's. For me, I do miss the fragrant crispy piece of bian yu in the noodles, but I am satisfied with the well-balanced and not overly-salted taste of Seng Kee's version.

Rolina Hainanese Curry Puff 
Straight after the noodles, it's Kopi-session with the folks. They do the drinking. I do the eating. Rolina's famous Hainanese Curry Puff might not win Old Chang Kee for the curry filling but it's pastry crust is superb. Sardine filling is more appetizing with green and red chilli. ($1.40 each)
By the way, kopi here is cheaper than elsewhere. Only 80 cents instead of $1.10
