Lor Mee

$3.00 Β· 26 Reviews

178 Lor Mee was closed so we got this. Not bad, but not great as well. The dish was not too starchy and well seasoned.

Priced at $3/$4/$5, we went for the $4 portion which was substantial. Consisting of 2 pcs of fish meat nuggets, ngoh hiong (meat roll) and a braised egg, it was a typical bowl of Lor Mee. The gravy was thick and gooey throughout but lacking depth and the taste profile was bland. We were extremely thirsty after the meal and that suggested that a good amount of MSG was added.

Price: $3/$4/$5

Queue is always Long but when you eat the lor mee, you know the queue time worth it. Nice and cheap! $3 / $4 / $5. those who loves garlic, Chili.. it’s unlimited..

The gravy not too thick, Generous ingredients such as ngor hiang, fish cake, lor bak, braised egg, fried fish and fried dumplings.
It’s a very decent bowl of lor mee for me based on taste n price.

Topup S$1 for extra lor bak (braised meat)
Mixed bee hoon & mee version
Served with slices of fishcake and ngor hiang, fried fish nuggets, stewed pork belly and braised egg, serving with sambal chill, red/green chopped chillies, and minced garlic.
Long queue with about 10 pax in front of me.
Favourite part would be the crispy battered fish.

Doused with plenty of vinegar and topped with a mountain of garlic is always the way I enjoy a bowl of lor mee.

Besides the essential noodles and gravy, this humble bowl also consisted of sliced ngoh hiang, fishcake, half an egg, sliced pork, a fried dumpling and deep fried fish nuggets! Found that the more vinegar and garlic we added, the tastier the lor mee actually became πŸ€” In addition, the stall owners were quite generous as well, what with them not reacting to customers who helped themselves with scarily huge amounts of vinegar and garlic! 😰

All in all, a pretty good bowl of lor mee worth the long-ass queue which snaked all the way to the nearby staircase (took about 20-25 minutes for us to get our food) πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

The area may be known for the lauded 178 Lor Mee that comes with fried shark meat, but most of the Tastemakers actually prefer the Lor Mee ($3) from this stall. Tastemaker Justin Teo likes that the ingredients are more flavourful here in comparison, especially the pork belly, which he describes to be sweet and well marinated. Add on extra for $1! The gravy too is a winner β€” flavourful and not just full of corn starch. Tastemaker Justin heard that the chilli at the stall is great, and plans to return soon to try. We would love to, too!
Avg Price: $5 per person
