Tiong Bahru Lor Mee


This stall at Tiong Bahru Market has the original Tiong Bahru lor mee. Despite fierce competition from 178 Shark Meat Lor Mee, Tiong Bahru Lor Mee has its steady stream of customers who prefer its traditional lor mee than the unconventional lor mee from 178.


The first thing about Tiong Bahru Lor Mee that impresses me is the great variety of ingredients. A bowl of delicious lor mee, which costs $2 or $3, comes with ngor hiang, fish cake, fish nuggets, braised meat, braised egg, fried fish and fried dumplings, everything you would ever wish for in a bowl of lor mee. The savory gravy, though not as thick as 178's, is tasty and complementary to the noodles. The braised meat is lean and tender while the fried dumplings are sweet and crispy.

One thing for sure, those who prefer the traditional type of lor mee will certainly be delighted by Thong Bahru Lor Mee.

Background of Tiong Bahru Lor Mee Since 1969.

Tiong Bahru Lor Mee was started by Mr Teo who lived at Taman Ho Swee
In 1969, Mr. Teo passed away and his daughter Mdm Teo took over.

The Tiong Bahru stall could be taken over by Mdm Teo brother and stall lady on the pic is Mdm Teo sister's daughter who have work with her for over 30 yrs.

If there is another stall in Bukit Batok it can be Mdm Teo stall as she live there.

Tiong Bahru Lor Mee may be in Kyushu Japan if I set up Kopitiam here.

Keep up your support to Tiong Bahru Lor Mee. Thank you.

Relative of Mdm Teo.

It have been reported in ST news that shark have high level of mercury. It will be good to avoid high consumption of shark meat.
