When I went to Old Airport Road Food Centre for breakfast last week, I was surprised to see a very long queue in front of Xin Mei Xiang lor mee when there is hardly any queue for the other stalls. There must be something special about this lor mee that keeps its customers wanting to queue for it.
I ordered a $4 bowl of lor mee which was topped with such generous servings of fried fish (take a look at the photo) that I could hardly contain my delight. The thick and mouthwatering gravy complements the noodles really well, giving every strand a thorough coat of irresistable flavour. Besides my favorite fried fish, this fantastic lor mee also comes with ngor hiang, braised meat and braised egg.
The winning factor of Xin Mei Xiang lor mee has to be its special fried fish. Like the rest of the customers, I certainly don't mind queuing up for half an hour just to have a taste of it.
