Xin Mei Xiang Zheng Zong Lor Mee

Looking for the best Lor Mee in Singapore? Besides Yuan Chun Famous Lor Mee in Amoy Street Food Centre, I will say Xin Mei Xiang is one of the notable Lor Mee stalls in Singapore too. Xin Mei Xiang has never failed to let its customers wait in the queue as they are always pack full of snaky queues line up in front of their stall.

As we all know, the trademark of a bowl of traditional Lor Mee comprises of rich, semi translucent sticky gravy poured over the flat yellow noodles, Kway Teow or even Bee Hoon. What makes them stand up among the rest and the reason of the persistent patrons even knowing they have to stand for 30 to 45 minutes in the queue? Let's try to find out more.

Toppings include slices of tender Lor Bak (Braised Pork), Ngoh Hiang, half braised egg and with the bowls filled geneously with fried fish chunks allowing a filling and satisfying meal.

Lor Mee - $4 (Medium)
I'm not too much a fan of yellow noodles as the Alkaline content can be too much at times but for Xin Mei Xiang, their noodles do not have too much of that smell and were cooked to al dente perfection.

If you notice, there is only Medium and Big portion, leaving the small portion no where to be seen. The bigger portion to me is more exaggerating as it almost covered the whole bowl with the shredded fish meat.

Lor Mee - $5 (Large)
Adding vinegar and chilli to the bowl of traditional hokkien dish sure elevates the taste. What I like best besides the loads of shredded fish will be its consistency of the starch used in its gravy which makes the taste pleasant.

On a side note, after having their Lor Mee a couple of times, there is no urge of thirstiness. If you asked if they are worth the queue. I would say, Yes!
