Several things stand out in their rendition.
The gravy, slick with pork lard, light soy sauce, black vinegar, and chili, coats the soft mee pok / wide flat egg noodles well, lending robust savoury salty spicy flavour.
The tender soy braised shiitake mushrooms, juicy and vegetal salty earthy savoury in taste.
The bouncy fish balls and springy fish cake have a light savoury sweet flavour with a hint of vegetal fishy notes, yum.
Bits of tender minced pork with meaty sweet savoury flavour, and crisp spring onions with vegetal herbal sweet notes, complete the dish.

Love the bak Chor mee ($4) here! I always order the kway Teow and 3 sauces (chilli, vinegar, ketchup) combi 🍜


If there's an identity to the overall meh Kovan hawker centre, it's the bcm rivalry. I rarely join the queues but I know they're all quite good. Compared to bcm elsewhere, here they're generously seasoned. The portion of the noodles was also huge.

Noodles texture cooked just right, retaining it's springy texture for a good bite. Comes with a good portion of ingredients such as minced pork, liver, fishball, fish cake, meat ball and braised mushroom. Their sauce includes their fiery chili but carries a hint of sweetness and the amount of vinegar used is not too overpowering.

The Bak Chor Mee ($4) from Fa Ji Minced Meat Fishball Noodles at Kovan Market and Food Centre (#01-05) features springy egg noodles, fishballs, minced meat, pork liver and mushroom tossed in a delicious chilli sauce - pretty good stuff! The portion is quite generous too - there is usually a queue but it is worth the wait:)

$5 (add fishball)

The best bar chor mee of the 3 at kovan 209

Will return for this all the time.
