I discovered this noodle stall at Seah Im Road Food Centre by chance, before I realise it was voted one of the best braised meat noodle (Lor Mee) in Singapore (no, no, not really deserving a top 3 spot imho, it will be too flattering :P).
I believe they had just risen their minimum price to $3 from $2.50, but for $3, they are quite generous with the braised meat, pork spring roll (ngor hiong), slices of fish cake, half a braised egg, and toppled with abundant coriander leaves as well as garlic. The thickness of broth was mild, much to my liking, and the rich fragrance of the coriander leaves was a welcome element in good supplement with their garlic paste, giving the noodle a rich taste. Talking about the noodle, I thought it was the only sub-par (main) ingredient. They were using a rare thin flat type noodle, but they apparently failed to rid the alkaline taste from it, if it was not embedded with the rich taste of their broth, I’d render the noodle inedible. But credit have to be given to the other ingredients, which are surprisingly fresh & tasty. I guess these were the factors making them one of the better braised meat noodle in Singapore. The best, in my opinion, is a short bus ride away to Bukit Purmei… 😛
