Most of the time, if we ever patronise an eatery that is a distance from our comfort, it is probably because the food is good.
Or, there are cute shirtless hunks or a chiobu running the stall.
If we are lucky, even both.
Bedok Bak Chor Mee Stall Went Viral As Stallowner Poses With Her Food
Bedok 85 is a famous market well-known for its fried oyster, prawn noodles, and bak chor mee.
Even if someone stays all the way in Jurong, it is no surprise that they are willing to travel all the way to the East for the food.
After all, the saying “East side best side” still stands.
On 13 November, a Facebook post was uploaded by Bestfoody, stating that Seng Hiang Bak Chor Mee, the famous stall in Bedok, will be having another outlet in Sengkang.
Many netizens are excited about the new opening, but something else catches their excitement.
The chiobu stall owner.
She held a bowl of bak chor mee and stood outside the stall. The post garnered over 500 likes, 380 shares and 78 comments on Facebook.
Who knows what did the post actually went viral for?
About Seng Hiang Bak Chor Mee
Seng Hiang Bak Chor was founded by Mr Chua Seng Hiang, hence the name of the business.
However, he did not start off his business venture selling bak chor mee straightaway. In 1950, he started off by selling dough fritters at Upper Changi Road.
Then, he moved to 85 Bedok Market to continue selling dough fritters in 1979.
Two years later, his son joined his dad at the stall to sell Laksa, Char Kway Teow, and satay.
In 1985, the founder then switched to selling bak chor mee.
Now, the business was passed down to the 3rd generation, run by Ms Peggy Chua (the chiobu) and her husband Mr Don Ng. They quit their full-time jobs to run their business at Sengkang.
The Sengkang bak chor mee is located at 21 Sengkang West Avenue 1 Fernvale Hawker Centre #03-07 Singapore 797650.
It is open daily, except Wednesdays from 10.30 am to 8.30 pm.
