This is probably not the first time I am featuring Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee and definitely not the last time.

The gravy is just perfect and I just love their shredded fried red snapper bits.

My favourite lor mee in town has opened a new outlet in Balestier. Looking forward to trying it soon!

Really the best lor mee in Singapore.

Been hearing lots of good reviews, especially on food king.

Usually closes early. So never got the chance to eat. Have to go down early for this on a Sunday.

Queue was around 30mins long during sunday lunch time

The fish chunks were soft and tender.

The sauce sibei thick. And smells and taste so good.

Will come back queue another 30mins next time

๐Ÿ’ธ Lor Mee: $5
Woke up super early to try this highly raved lor mee at old airport road hawker centre which always has long, snaking queues.๐Ÿ˜ต To us, having deep fried items like ngoh hiang or yam roll in lor mee are a must so this bowl of lor mee which includes mainly flakes fish and braised meat was something really different.๐Ÿ˜ฌ The flaked fish added a really nice savoury touch, and the gravy really blew us away. Flavourful but not too starchy and just the right consistency, which made the gravy super palatable.๐Ÿคค Also, definitely get the bigger bowl of lor mee as it's more worth it with the humongous pile of flaked fish on the noodles!๐ŸŸ Overall, a good bowl of lor mee and especially if you haven't had this variation with the flaked fish, definitely worth a try!๐Ÿ‘

๐ŸดProbably our favourite #lormee in Singapore! We would willingly brave their erratic opening timings (do check their Facebook for updates after 11pm) and meandering queues to secure a excellently executed bowl. The star was their gravy that was a perfect composition of five-spiced braise sauce, sour vinegar, spicy chilli, fragrant garlic, and fresh coriander. The starchy consistency was also on point - not overly so, but just enough to liberally coat each strand of noodles.

Would recommend topping up the $1 as you get your moneyโ€™s worth with the generous mountain of ingredients. Love that their version feels healthier with their use of pan fried fish instead of fried fritters and leaner pork meat. Thereโ€™s a choice of thin beehoon or yellow mee, and we appreciated both. The former soaks up the gravy particularly well while the later adds a firmer textural contrast and slight egginess.

Overall? Thereโ€™s just a je ne sais quoi to this bowl.

I was curious to try out this famous lor mee although Iโ€™m not a fan of lor mee. Came to visit Old Airport at Saturday morning 10.30am, queue for 1 hour until I get to enjoy my bowl.

To be honest, the most stand out from this dish is the gravy. They did a good job in making the gravy tasty. So everything it covers become good.
The meat topping was shredded fish meat & thin tiny pork belly.

In my opinions nothing specials other than their gravy. The pork belly was too tiny, you canโ€™t even feel you bite a pork belly. The staff recommend me to order yellow noodle mixed with thin bee hoon. Which I did, but seems yellow noodle alone will do just good. 3 options for the carbo: yellow noodle/bee hoon/kway tiao.

The verdict: although the gravy was tasty I donโ€™t think it worth the queue for 1 hour.

While most hawker food see a pool of contenders for "best", Xin Mei Xiang's rendition of ๐—Ÿ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ ($4/5/6) seemed to have abnormally strong backing and recommendations from many โ€” reflected in their hour long queues.
The essence of the dish is in its gravy and theirs was expertly rendered โ€” thick and consistent with little hint of starchiness. The drab shade of brown deceptively concealed a wealth of deep and robust flavours, accented by agreeable sweentess. Punchy vinegar zest and bright chili added levity to the hefty richness โ€” proportioning was inch perfect and not a shred of cloyingness was felt.
In place of fried fritters commonly found in other renditions, an eye-catching amount of pan fried fish swam about the pool of brown, each mouth flaky and fresh. A very convincing classic, but didn't astound to the extent for me to consider another 1 hour queue. The Tiong Bahru ones might suffice for me.
