A Makansutra Legend that hails from the old Wayang Street hawkers from the 70's, my family and I have been eating at Ah Kow for as long as I can remember. Reckon to be the authentic Teochew Minced Pork & Dumpling Noodle, one who enjoys an extra dash of black vinegar will appreciate their unrestrained use of black vinegar on the noodles that is purportedly a special brand of traditional black vinegar from China.
For a bowl of noodles that costs $3.50 (they have upped their price), the portion of noodles is paltry. Not as Q as I can remember, the noodles that day were average if not for the saving grace of the black vinegar that was not overwhelming, the slice of Ti Po (Crispy Fried Sole Fish) and the free helping of Crispy Pork Lard – that was fresh and crunchy.
And for an additional of $4, one can delight in the bowl of Teochew Keows (Dumplings) that comes with a generous helping of minced pork, slice pork, and my favourite vegetable - Tang O (Garland Chrysanthemum). Sadly, the soup was slightly lacklustre and bland that day, but the dumplings were still as good.
One might noticed that fried sole fish was added to give it an extra oomph. For $4 a bowl, one will get eight big pork filled dumplings.
However overall, I think Ah Kow’s standard has dipped slightly from the numerous times I have tried. One might also find a bowl of $3.50 minced pork noodles (without dumplings) expensive.

Ah Kow Mushroom Minced Pork Mee has been around ever since the Japanese surrendered in 1945. That's more than 60 years ago! This is definitely one stall with a long history and has been named one of the Makansutra legends. $3 gets you an average sized bowl of Mushroom Minced Pork Mee. The only thing that I liked about it was the slice of Ti Po which was crispy and salty and the hand made dumpling, which packed in the meaty flavours. The black vinegar was not too overwhelming and the soup had Tong Cai in it which made it tasty yet light on the palate. Quite good, but it certainly wasn't spectacular. Oh it comes with free flow lard too if you are interested.
