Just Google search tiong bahru market, and u will see "Lor Mee" as the most popular reviewed dish here.

There are 2 popular lor mee store here. Decided to line up at the one with the longer queue.

Chilli and garlic need to self service.

Came with 3 large pieces of crispy shark meat, there was battered excessively.

Gravy was quite thick and tasty, no wonder so long queue.

🦈 nuggets drew me to try the lor mee at this stall with an endless queue. Time check, it was only 10ish in the morning. Well, the regulars can’t get it wrong - if there’s a queue after so many many many years of operating at this hawker, the food must be good, if not great. Verdict? Yes it’s slurrrrps! Herbally broth that wasn’t overly herbally for my liking, with generous servings of fish cake, sprouts and some slices of lor bak. And the highlight? 3 fat shark nuggets fried to a crisp! ‘they remained crispy out, tender within. Texture of the “shark” meat is a cross between fish and chicken, a new intro to the tastebuds!


I don’t eat lormee very often (this is my third bowl ever) but this was pretty good! The sauce wasn’t too starchy, and I liked the shark nuggets. They were very crispy on the outside, and weren’t fishy nor oily.


This time I tried the 178 Lor Mee ( the green bowl ). The broth thick, slightly sweet and served with ingredients like shark fritters and egg.
The highlight is the shark fritters , is crispy outside and seasoning well.

Singaporeans love long queues right? We waited 15-20min for this piping hot bowl of goodness! The regular lor mee is $3 but we added $1 for additional shark nuggets! (Do note that the regular one also has shark nuggets) The nuggets are essentially shark meat coated in batter and fried. While interesting, the nuggets didn’t taste that special to me! The lor mee itself was good though - starchy, vinegary gravy and yellow noodles that don’t contain that usual weird bicarbonate taste. So thumbs up from me!


A lot of mee turn me off as I find their gravy starchy and cloying. 178 Lor Mee is one of the good ones.
The gravy was thick and filled with a nice robust flavour. It was not starchy at all, and it paired well with the chilli and ginger. But of course the star is their secret ingredient, the superbly fried shark meat fritters that left me wanting more as I crunched down on each one.
