Ok I went bck yesterday again for Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee 🤭 because I want to reminisce the taste for Lor Mee again 😋. So the gravy was quite thick and shiok but the ingredients for ngoh hiang and shredded duck meats was quite fresh made. But I need to wait at least around 30 to 45 mins for my turn to order lor mee. For me, I would not going bck for Lor Mee because I want to try punggol noodles nxt time. I felt that the queue was getting shorter compared to the past. Mostly people didn't want to queue and wait for opening hours around noon.

Missed fried carrot stick 🥕 so much for Dong Jin Yuan Dian Xin last time that I went there for lunch time. Need to eat them while served in 🔥.

So I went to Lorong Ah Soo Market for Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee but I went there too early because they will be opening around lunch hour 😳 Decided to went for Fu Yuan Mei Shi instead and some of the stores at there will be need to queue for food 🙃. So its already a plain gravy but adding some chili inside the gravy enhances lor mee ($3). I felt that their ingredients for lor mee was quite less and normal (fish cakes/shredded meat) Preferred Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee over this. OK I already returned back yesterday for queuing for Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee 👌 and will be writing the reviews soon.

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.

😁 Fried Hokkien Mee (S$4). Nice plate of wet style hokkien mee. The prawns and meat are at the bottom.

Deep fried carrot cake sticks aren’t something you usually find in hawker centres. Here, you can get 12 sticks for $2. A cheap and good breakfast.

These wonderful gems are deep fried till golden brown. Absolutely love how it’s so crispy on the outside yet the radish cake is so soft and chewy on the inside.
