Bak Chor Mee
There’s a limited quantity of Mei Mei’s bak chor mee meal kit, so you’ll want to order quick. The Singaporean spot provides the wonton noodles and the pork stock, along with pork balls, crispy lardons and shallots, braised mushrooms, and dressing. They recommend adding your own pork mince and livers as well, but that’s up to you chef.
You. A bench. The distant squawk of a seagull landing in the Thames. Mei Mei’s nasi lemak from Borough Market. Is there anything else you could possibly need? Well, maybe physical affection and a national ban on faux-inspirational ‘new normal’ TV adverts, but seeing as we can’t help with that, let’s focus on this coconut rice dish. Packed full of peanuts, fried chicken, and egg it’s perfect for a sit-down lunch on the river. You can’t go wrong with their kaya toast or Singapore curry either.
How do step-by-step instructions, pre-measured ingredients, and the knowledge that you could eat Mei Mei’s nasi lemak at home sound? Pretty great. This Singaporean spot is delivering nasi lemak, bak chor mee, beef rendang, and curry meal kits - but hurry, they’re only making a limited amount.
What they’ve got: The Star Wars x noodles t-shirt we never knew we needed.
Two words. Baby Yoda. Although it might feel like eighteen centuries back, Baby Yoda actually broke into our lives and hearts at the end of last year. Undeniably cute and from a simpler time when you’d never so much as uttered the words ‘Zoom Party’, Baby Yoda is the energy we all need in our lives this festive season. Especially when he’s depicted with a bowl of steaming ramen on one of Mei Mei’s t-shirts. They’ve also got a design featuring a couple of jolly cats, and you can always add a jar of kaya coconut jam into their stocking too.
The Singaporian kopitiam spot in Borough Market has begun collection and delivery every Thursday to Saturday. Hainanese chicken rice, fried chicken, and more is on the menu. Order via app and check their Instagram for more info.
Mei Mei is a Borough Market stall taking its inspiration from Singaporean kopitiams. There’s counter seating around an open kitchen, and you can expect dishes like Hainese chicken rice and nasi lemak, as well as Nanyang coffee.
