I literally grew up on the "meepok ta" from 132 Traditional Teochew Meepok. My memories of going to the defunct Siglap Market with my family when I was a kid to tuck into a bowl of this after my mum finished her marketing, are still vividly etched in my mind. Even back then, I insisted on having it with "hiam jeo jway jway" (or "plenty of chilli" in English). I guess I could already tell how special their chilli paste was (it is a closely-guarded secret recipe by the way). During their 40 years of business, this little stall has moved quite a few times (and spawned a few spin-offs of which I strongly feel, still can't hold a candle to the original). With each rediscovery of 132 Meepok's new location, I would breathe a huge sigh of relief of being able to continue to enjoy my favourite noodles once again.
Presently run by the founder's wife and one of their sons, the quality and taste remains the same but the queues are longer than ever. So I always get the biggest order at $5 whenever I'm there. And yes, still with "hiam jeo jway jway" :) #Hawkerpedia
