Guan's Mee Pok, Maxwell Food Centre


A relatively new mee pok stall has opened at Maxwell Centre, named "Guan's Mee Pok". When asked whether they were related to the Ah Guan Mee Pok at Syed Alwi Road, they were non-committal. I'm not quite sure what that means, and I hope there are no trade mark / passing off issues there. 


In any case, I'm not here to talk about IP law, I'm here to talk about food! And boy was it a good bowl of meepok. The stall is somewhat unique since every bowl of noodles features an Ni-tamago egg (the Japanese half-boiled egg with a semi-solid yolk), and some fish maw as well.










The noodles were good: quite springy, although they tend to clump together (not a good sign). The sauce, made of powerful chilli and spices - was good and coated the noodles well. The egg was delicious, and they also provide some fried fish balls and fish maw. Very untraditional, if I may say so. Good bowl of noodles and the queue wasn't that long, so that's a 8.25/10.


















I also ordered a Dried Scallop with Fish Maw - more fish maw, in a superior stock. Quite delicious too, somewhat like eating a cheap shark's fin soup. (8/10)

I would definitely come back, if only the heat wasn't so unbearable.
