Comforting KL-Style Pork Noodles With Large Meat Patty Found At Yishun Hawker Stall

The Malaysian-born restaurant chef-turned-hawker of Chef Wai Hometown Noodle serves zhu rou fen from his hometown.

Comforting KL-Style Pork Noodles With Large Meat Patty Found At Yishun Hawker Stall

Nope, this is not bak chor mee as we know it in Singapore. Called zhu rou fen (pork noodles in mandarin) in Malaysia, this bowl of meaty goodness was recently introduced to a new BTO estate at Yishun Ave 6 by former restaurant chef Steven Chan, 32. Instead of loose bits of bak chor or minced pork in Singapore’s version, his bowl comes with a photogenic large meat patty soaking in cloudy soup, along with a variety of pork cuts.  

Housed at Prime Court coffeeshop, the ten-week-old stall has a cute but kinda confusing logo. Next to a bowl of noodles are the mandarin words ‘Chen Jia Mian’ (‘Chen Family’s Noodles’ — the hawker’s Cantonese surname Chan translates to Chen in mandarin). Bewilderingly, the English name in small print says ‘Chef Wai Hometown Noodle’. What gives?
