Da Sheng Bak Chor Mee: The Key to Better Hawker Food!
Yong Sheng tells me that with the relocation, their bak chor mee is now better than ever. My initial assumption was that with more years of experience, things would generally keep improving, but this wasn’t the reason for the improvement. The real reason is economics. Over at Bedok Reservoir, rentals were higher and they were not able to sell a bowl of bak chor mee for more than $3.50. Now at Ubi, rentals are lower and the people working around the area are more willing to spend on food. That means that he is now able to use more quality ingredients like dried sole fish and octopus in the soup as well as to throw in more stuff into the sambal!
