Lor Mee, some love it, others simply do not like it. For me, Lor Mee is one of Singapore’s most original hawker food and it originated from the Hokkien community in Singapore.
Lao Beng visited North Bridge Road Market and Food Centre one morning to try out Zhen Hao Lor Mee (珍好卤面).
They have a few varieties, Treasures Lor Mee at $6 which basically contains all the good stuff, Traditional Lor Mee at $4, Cod Fish Fillet Lor Mee at $5 and Chicken Cutlet Hor Fun at $3.
As shown above, the various ingredients for making Lor Mee and most notably a Traditional Lor Mee must have chunks of fried fish. Thus, it is a common sight to see an entire fried fish at the stall.
Being the old school me, I decided to order the Traditional Lor Mee at $4.
This bowl of Traditional Lor Mee contains chunks of fried fish meat and skin, yam Ngoh Hiang, braised pork belly, egg and bean sprouts. It is a must for me to add vinegar and chilli to enhance the taste.
Taste-wise, the lor mee gravy was smooth and delicious, while the noodle tasted pretty springy. The ingredients were very delectable and I especially liked the “yammylicious” yam ngoh hiang.
Lao Beng is a big lover of fish skin and I simply loved the taste of the soaked fish skin which still had a slight crisp.
Lao Beng’s Verdict
There are stalls which sell nontraditional lor mee with lumpy gravy and those are a turn-off. This is not the case at Zhen Hao Lor Mee (珍好卤面), so do give it a try if you are in the vicinity.
