SoShiok: Japanese Mee Pok Man

  • 20 Jun 2016

The bemusing sight of a Japanese chef engrossed with preparing the perfect bowl of mee pok in a hawker centre has drawn both stares as well as long queues. For 47-year-old Japanese hawker Naoji Kuribara, his best-selling item is mee pok, or better known as 'Bak Chor Mee'. Mr Kuribara, who took over Ah Hoe Mee Pok in Clementi, has opened his second stall at Block 713. He learnt his skills from his master, Singaporean Eric Chia, who opened the original Ah Hoe Mee Pok.
