Where else can you find lunch for $3 in the CBD? This venerable institution has been around for years and only just raised their prices by 50 cents(you could previously get a large portion for $2.50). The lone uncle in the kitchen dishes out an amazing variety of local staples all for the same price, including mee reebus, mee siam, lor mee and prawn noodles, but none can beat the bak chor mee, which is usually sold out shortly after 12pm.

This version differs from the norm and only comes with braised minced pork over noodles. It’s highly savoury, saucy, a little sweet, spicy and oily, and utterly satisfying.

Taste: 3/5
