Everyone loves Bak Chor Mee. We can literally eat this any time of the day! Especially after a night of clubbing at Zouk, Bak Chor Mee is definitely my comfort food for late night supper. Bak Chor Mee is said to be a dish of Teochew origin. You can choose the noodles of your preference and the more common noodles are Mee Pok (thick noodles) or the Mee Kia (thin noodles) although some would go for the less common ones like yellow noodles, kway teow or bee hoon. It is usually topped with assortment of pork meat such as sliced lean pork, minced pork and pork liver and braised mushrooms. This is definitely a truly uniquely Singaporean dish that you probably can't find out of Singapore and a dish that gets the Singaporean staying abroad craving for it.
