From the Burpple community

This bowl of dry mee pok ($4) was decently springy, but still had that slight alkaline taste. Looking past that however, the robust umami from the sole fish and chili was undoubtedly enjoyable.
-
Their chili, in particular, had such a delectable fragrance unlike the usual BCM chili. A very respectable BCM, worth trying for their secret chili blend.

The star here is the chilli - it’s not the saucy kind but the dry kind that is fried till fragrant! A scoop of chilli and a piece of flat fish add much oomph to this bowl of fishball noodles👏🏻

There was a short queue of about 4-5 people. Waited for 15 mins or so.

Buah keras chilli that was used to season the noodles was good; packs a punch. Noodles was perfectly cooked; springy.
(But my parents who frequented the stall said they can be inconsistent in their cooking of the noodles; overcooked at time. Things are not the same after someone else took over. Not too sure. Maybe someone can verify?).
Amount of noodles seem a bit much for an average Asian lady's appetite tho.
But wish noodles was a tad more salty. Just a tad more. Noodles was a bit oily because of the chilli as well.

The small pieces of flat fish that came with the noodles were awesome!
Mushroom was ok, had a peculiar rubberband taste (just me, maybe?)
Fish cake fresh but taste wise, pretty average.

Accompanying soup was bland, but that's not the highlight anyway.
Fishballs bouncy and fresh but a bit bland; I consider them average.
Fish dumplings (aka her kiao) were very good! They added tee por to them. 👍

Recommendation:
Noodles with the chilli is the highlight.
If you wanna top up and get the side dishes, the flat fish is the one to get.
The (handmade) fish dumplings are way better than the fishballs.

Ordered the following:
1) 2X Dried Mee Kia (came with a soup; 2 fishballs & 2 fish dumplings aka 'her kiao')
2) 1X Mushroom ($3)
3) 1X Fishcake ($3)
Total cost:$14

Seriously, the chilli is amazing. something different I haven't found anywhere else. Worth the trip out here for it.

This humble bowl of fishball noodles is what draws the crowd to the unassuming coffeeshop stall across from Mustafa Centre. Despite the long wait under hot and humid conditions during midday, our Burpple community is willing to sweat it out. What you must have is the dry version of the famed Fishball Noodles (from $3), and be sure to add on the succulent braised mushrooms and the big chunks of crunchy, deep-fried (dried) flat fish. Apart from the usual cut red chilli provided on the side, ask for the homemade chilli that is mixed with pork lard, haebee and buah keras (candlenut). Tastemaker Amanda Liu describes the chilli to be "crazy shiok and addictive", which gives the dish the extra oomph! They sell out early, so head here as early as you can to avoid disappointment.
Avg Price: $5 per person

Decent, very affordable bowl of mee pok, with ingredients like fish balls, dumplings, juicy braised mushrooms, meat and I liked how there were crisp flat fish!

Preferred the meepok (tho it could be a bit more qq) to the kuayteow which was a little bland to me but it's probably a good idea because the chilli here is damn shiok! Sinfully made with pork lard, buah keras*, and haebee without being overly spicy, very addictive. The additional soup we ordered was tastier than the accompanying one and came with fish balls and her-giao! Go for additional ingredients like we did - couldn't stop picking at the mushrooms and flat fish 😛

Thanks to a friend for pointing this out - was enlightened on the difference between buahkeluak (the black nut with distinct earthy taste) and buah keras (candlenut) which is usually used for chilli! 🤗
