Lor Mee!!

By my queenstown on Thursday, July 22, 2010 with 6 comments

Lor Mee is  a noodle dish "invented" by Hokkien speakers in Singapore. Served in a thick starchy gravy and flat yellow noodles, lor mee is a popular dish among Singaporeans. Finding a traditionally made lor mee is not an easy task. The gravy must incorporate corn starch, eggs and spices whereas the ingredients added into the bowl of noodles must include pork or chicken meat dumplings, fish cakes with fried fish as topping. Today, MyQueenstown found one delicious and traditionally made lor mee in Tanglin Halt Market!

There was a huge crowd queuing for the lor mee and MyQueenstown Team has some difficulty speaking to the owner, Mr Ng Seng Yap and his wife. Mr and Mrs Ng has been serving Tanglin Halt residents with this marvellous bowl of Lor Mee for the past 40 years. Started as an itinerant hawker, Mr Lee had operated in a former miniature market down Tanglin Halt Road previously.

Pork was formerly included as an ingredient in the Lor Mee. However, the various diseases in the turn of millennium had prompted them to use chicken instead. Unlike some other hawker stalls, Mr Ng believed in healthy living and used vegetable oil while preparing the dish.

Besides being a cook at this popular lor mee stall, Mr Ng was invited to several cooking competitions as a judge. Taking pride of his achievements, he is "happy to serve the residents and look forward to serving Tanglin Halt residents" in many years to come.

good neighborhood report,
it would be great if it is accompanied with info like price, opening hours, rest day and exact location (unit number) so people that never go there like me can give it a try.

I used to study in Mei Chin Secondary back in the early 80's, being from Sabah Malaysia, I've never tasted Lor Mee before, I took a liking to it when having it in my school canteen. Unfortunately its very hard to find good Lor mee in Malaysia like those in Singapore. Makes my mouth water just by looking at the picture.

This stall is a "must visit" for breakfast, whenever I am back to Singapore. As usual I have too much garlic on the lor mee and blurbing all day long. Shiok.
