Lor Mee @ Bukit Purmei [Closed]

Ever wonder why would someone queue up for more than half an hour for a bowl of Lor Mee to satisfy their taste buds? This is a common sight for Bukit Purmei Lor Mee Stall daily. Their diehard fans would just join in the snaky queues and grab a bowl of it to warm up their stomach. 

Perhaps it's spectacular gooey, luscious gravy, slurpy braised pork belly and its crunchy bits are simply above average standard as compared to any other Lor Mee Stall locally. Having tried many Lor Mee Stalls, I can assure that is one of the few that keeps me returning.

Silvia dripping? A trip down to Bukit Purmei is worth the while.


The Diehards in the Queue

I'm quite particular on its Yellow Noodles when it comes to Lor Mee and would immediately strike off any dish if any strong "ki" smell of the noodle is present.

Besides the ingredients as the main criteria for a winning bowl of Lor Mee, its gravy does plays an important role, giving the ensemble a savoury finish.Condiments like their vinegar and finely chopped garlic were added to give another punch to the dish.

It  comes in three sizes priced at $2.50 (Red bowl), $3 (Green Bowl) and  $3.50 (yellow bowl).

A standard bowl of Lor Mee consists of slices of lean Lor Bak, crunchy bits, ngor hiang and char siew. The fragrant braised sauce was consistent and one would not feel "jerlat" even having such a big bowl. The plus point was its cripsy bits which remains a good cripsy texture after being soaked into the sauce.

Yums! Char Siew, Lean Meat and can you spot the Ngor Hiang?


For those who wants to avoid the queue, try to be there as early as 7.30am.
