Ah Hoe Mee Pok - The Branch Managed by Japanese (Mother-Son) @ West Coast Block 713, Clementi West Street 2

Having tasted the original Ah Hoe Mee Pok, it's time for me to check out the man's disciples who have set up two separate branches in the West Coast district.

The amazing story scope was that his disciples were Japanese who didn't mind the back-breaking work required from hawkers! Their dedication was especially commendable as even locals shun the occupation preferring comfortable, air-conditioned environment.

Unlike the torturing close-to-45 minutes wait standing in the queue, the wait at this mother-son branch was made sitting down at our table; i have never been that grateful for this technology!

At first glance, this didn't appear too different from the one served at original Ah Hoe but before i start with the bowl filled with mee pok and its company, let's talk about the soup which infused with a richer flavour.

On ingredients - have you noticed the difference? This one at the Japanese branch was added with meat balls! Boy do i love meat balls! 

Noodles at this branch were better cooked and i must say the noodle-cooking skill from the young Japanese man had definitely surpassed its master! The taste of vinegar was also significantly stronger yet not to the extent of overpowering although as a whole, the overall combination was in fact nicer. 

Now, i wonder if the last branch, the one consisting of father and daughter from the same Japanese family, would be even better. Anticipation awaits!
