Been a while since I last visited Whampoa market for Singapore local food. And it was only in recent weeks when I had been frequenting the area to buy bread from the nearby traditional bakeries that I had the chance to explore further.
First up, let’s take a look at the Best Lu Mian In Town. No, it’s not my verdict, lol. It’s just the name of this lor mee stall that used to be located at Amoy Street Food Centre.
The Lu Mian ($3) came with a good portion of toppings like fried fish nuggets, crunchy flour fritters and braised pork. Spotted bean sprouts too but I was disappointed that there wasn’t any braised egg. The fish and fritters were crispy, full of flavour and didn’t ooze oil when I bit into them. The pork was a little tough because it was of a leaner cut but it was nonetheless still tasty. The gravy wasn’t overly starchy too. While I didn’t think this lor mee was the best as its gravy wasn’t as good as the one from Lor Mee 178 @ Tiong Bahru Market, it was still a robust-tasting bowl of noodles worth trying. Recommended!
