With famous food like Outram Park fried kway teow, Tuck Kee crayfish hor fun, Ah Heng and Heng Kee curry noodles which have been featured on local food blogs and forums, Hong Lim Market is certainly a food paradise in Singapore. Today I decided to try Chuan Bee lor mee which was recommended by some food lovers.
I ordered a $3 bowl of lor mee which comes with braised meat, fish cake, fried fish, fish nuggets and fried yam balls. Though thick and savory with a herbal tinge, the gravy seems to be lacking in flavour and does not complement the noodles well enough. I especially like the special fried yam balls that are sweet and crunchy and the fried fish that is fresh and tasty.
While the lunch time crowd at Hong Lim feel that Chuan Bee lor mee is one of the best, it certainly did not live up to my expectations. As taste is subjective, do come down and try it for yourself.
