Bak Chor Mee

Bak Chor Mee (肉脞面) is a uniquely Singaporean dish that represents our love for pork! Honestly, it uses so many parts of a pig, from various parts of the meat, to even the liver. All this is great, especially when paired with the vinegar-braised mushrooms. Who can say no to this awesome noodly dish?
Our method is to make this dish right in the old school way, by making use of lard to coat the noodles, for another level of taste to the noodles. Also, when cooking the liver, timing is especially important. We can say with much certainty that this hawker favourite can now be recreated any time from the comfort of home!
