Lor mee ($4/$5)
⭐️ 5/5 ⭐️
🍴Probably our favourite #lormee in Singapore! We would willingly brave their erratic opening timings (do check their Facebook for updates after 11pm) and meandering queues to secure a excellently executed bowl. The star was their gravy that was a perfect composition of five-spiced braise sauce, sour vinegar, spicy chilli, fragrant garlic, and fresh coriander. The starchy consistency was also on point - not overly so, but just enough to liberally coat each strand of noodles.

Would recommend topping up the $1 as you get your money’s worth with the generous mountain of ingredients. Love that their version feels healthier with their use of pan fried fish instead of fried fritters and leaner pork meat. There’s a choice of thin beehoon or yellow mee, and we appreciated both. The former soaks up the gravy particularly well while the later adds a firmer textural contrast and slight egginess.

Overall? There’s just a je ne sais quoi to this bowl.
