Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee Ion Orchard is one of the several famous hawker stalls that are housed ‘under one roof’ at B4 of the posh Ion Orchard shopping mall. With their Eunos Crescent stall undergoing renovations for about 3 weeks from April 2023. This can be place to go to get your BCM fix in the meantime.

The most crowded areas in Ion Orchard are levels B2 and B4. Level B2 is where the MRT exits from Orchard MRT pour commuters into the building. Level B4 is where the affordable food places are located. This is where you can find Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee at Orchard Road. It is one of several stalls in Hawkers’ Street, a compact space which houses a handful of famous Singapore hawkers. Other famous names there include Nam Sing Hokkien Mee and Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice.You can read our post on ION Orchard Restaurants 2023 for other dining options at Ion Orchard.

Famous Eunos BCM 100th Anniversary

According to their Facebook page, Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee celebrates their 100-year anniversary in 2023. It is currently run by the 5th generation, whose great great grandfather offered this heritage dish from a humble cart in 1923. For us, this is an amazing story. For this BCM to be passed on to the 5th generation and still going strong is an impressive achievement.

Famous Eunos BCM currently has 3 locations in Singapore. Apart from the Eunos Crescent location that is being renovated, the other two in operation are at Blk 106 Hougang Ave 1and ION Orchard Basement 4 Hawkers’ Street. Here is a picture of the Eunos BCM menu. We decided to try the Signature Bak Chor Mee in both soup and dry formats ($6 each).

What We Ate At ION Orchard

Quite often, bak chor mee is best enjoyed as a dry noodle dish with some soup (usually very ordinary in taste) on the side. At Famous Eunos, it seems that the soup is one of the highlights of this stall. Here is a picture of our noodle soup. A lot of minced pork goes into each bowl of Signature BCM. Yet they have also managed to avoid any hint of ‘porkiness”.

The meat balls were nice and springy while the dumplings were large and soft. In combination with the chewy noodles, the soup version of Famous Eunos BCM was indeed enjoyable. My dining companion was a resident from the East and is familiar with the original taste at the Eunos stall. It seemed that the tastes were very similar. They had managed to replicate their Famous taste at this Orchard Road branch.

This is the dry version of Famous Eunos bak chor mee. The soup was the same as before. With the noodles served separately, one can have them flavoured according to taste. Those who prefer a heavily flavoured noodles will like the dry version and specify more chilli spiciness and/or more vinegar. The portion size was enough for a person with an average appetite. We thought that $6 for this size and quality of BCM was reasonable. Enjoyed in the heart of Singapore’s glitzy Orchard Road, no less.

Nam Sing Hokkien Mee

Since we were at Hawker Street, we also tried a plate of HKM from Nam Sing, another popular stall. It was still the dry style of noodles, with lots of prawn flavour that we are familiar with. With these big names, you can expect Hawker Street to be crowded at meal times.
