There are a few stalls in Hainanese Village Food Centre at Lorong Ah Soo that are well-known for their long queues especially during weekends. I have previously tried and introduced Yi Liu Xiang Nasi Lemak during my last visit there. Today I decided to try the famous Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee.
Indeed value for money, a bowl of $3 lor mee comes with an fabulous variety of ingredients like ngor hiang, fried wanton, fish cake, braised duck and braised egg. The delicious gravy is savory and complementary to the noodles but not overly sticky or starchy. I was most impressed by the fried wanton which were filled with abundant crunchy chestnut. The shredded braised duck serves as a healthier alternative to the usual braised fatty meat. If you feel that lor mee can never be complete without braised egg, you will be delighted that this lor mee comes with one whole braised egg which I usually save for the last.
One of the more delicious lor mee in the heartlands of Singapore, Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee just lacks the distinguishing factor present in other famous lor mee eg Bukit Purmei. Nevertheless, this value-for-money lor mee with generous servings of ingredients is still worthwhile queuing up for.
