Are you a Lor mee lover? If you are just like I am, do check out Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee (02-51) at Hainanese Village Food Centre. They always attract long queues before they open at 12pm and only open till 3pm. Each bowl sets you back $3.50 or $4 (pictured).

It’s a fairly simple bowl of lor mee but you get a generous serving of tasty ingredients. Just ngoh hiang, fried fish, shreds of braised duck, fish cake and boiled egg in a slightly starchy, braised gravy. No shark meat or fried fish as I’d like it to be.

When it comes to the choice of noodles, I’ll always have just the flat yellow noodle (the traditional noodles with lor mee). Although you can choose to have it with bee hoon, kway teow or mixed.

As for the gravy (lor), it was not as starchy that I’d expect it to be. It’s more towards the lighter, soupy side. I prefer my lor mee to have a stronger flavour but good for those who like lor mee this way.

Remember to have it with garlic, fresh red chilli and vinegar for added flavour. It’ll help to enhance the flavour of the dish since it’s on the lighter side.

The stallholders are pretty friendly which helps to make up for the half an hour queue. I wouldn’t queue for it again if I could though.
