Located at the stretch of hawker stalls at Geylang East Centre Food Centre, facing the road is Shanghai Noodle. Lor Mee selling Lor Mee, Chicken Chop Noodle, Pork Chop Noodle and Shredded Chicken Noodle. I only tried the Lor Mee as that is what most of the customers ordered.
Lor Mee 3.5/5
The bowl of Lor Mee ($3) comes brimming with different ingredients such as braised pork belly, fried fish, braised egg and bean sprouts. I could not help noticing that the "Lor" or gravy is without eggs, it was sort of disappointing. The gravy itself is not as robust and starchy compared to many other places too.
I would recommend adding the chilli sauce and garlic, and give the bowl of noodle a good toss. The addition of the chilli and garlic will give the flavour a boost. I enjoyed the luscious topping of braised pork belly which is tender and juicy. The noodle was also well cooked, not over done, still have not al dente texture. As for the fried fish, while it is chunky, the batter is lackluster. It was pre-fried and not crispy.
The Lor Mee here may not be the best but it still provides a comforting meal to fill the hungry stomach. It is also value for money with the amount of ingredients for just $3. While it is not my best, I did observe it has its own regulars during my lunch there.
