Whenever I am home and need to go to the market to get food for lunch, my brain is automatically wired to “Lor Mee” (Noodles in Braised sauce). This stall sells Laksa too but it is the Lor Mee that brings me back.
My Bowl of Lor Bee Hoon (Small), $2.50
There is something strangely addictive about this Lor Mee or my Lor Bee Hoon as I prefer bee hoon to mee. 😉 There are no complex ingredients in this dish – just a few slices of braised meat, fish cake,eggs and bean sprouts together with the sauce and your choice of noodles topped with minced garlic, chilli, chopped parsley and vinegar. Perhaps it is the simplicity of this dish that brings me and many patrons back again and again.
Digging into the bowl to reveal all the ingredients buried underneath. $2.50 bowl is enough to fill me up!
They stopped making their own fried wantons a year back (though it was really popular!) and now adds ngoh hiang (spiced minced meat ball) in replacement of the wanton. I find that the taste of the meat ball does not gel with the sauce. I really missed the taste of their fried wanton soaked with the braised sauce… Hope that they will bring it back despite it being very labour intensive!
Be prepared to queue for at least 15min to get your fix as it is really popular with the folks. Doesn’t help that they are made well known by blogs and forums and the Channel U program 排排站, 查查看 where Kym Ng 钟琴 gave the thumbs up too!
