1-Michelin-Starred Hill St Tai Hwa Pork Noodle Has New Preorder Takeaway Counter
Hopefully this means we don’t have to wait for over an hour for the famous bak chor mee now.
Sating a craving for Hill St Tai Hwa Pork Noodle’s bak chor mee requires patience and endurance — the one-Michelin-starred hawker stall at Crawford Lane usually has a waiting time of at least 45 minutes.
Now, this stall is not to be confused with the similarly-named High Street Tai Wah Pork Noodle, which started as a stall at Hong Lim Food Centre and has been aggressively expanding as a hawker chain with numerous outlets islandwide. While it doesn’t have its own Michelin star, it was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand nod in 2021 (an accolade given to eateries who offer “great value-for-money options”).
However, the owners of these two stalls are brothers. Crawford Lane’s Hill St Tai Hwa Pork Noodle is run by Tang Chay Seng, and remains the only outlet of its kind, while his younger brother Chai Chye opened the Hong Lim stall, which has since been passed to Chai Chye’s sons Gerald and Jason.
