Top 8 Lor Mee to Try in Singapore

December 6, 2023

Lor Mee, a Chinese Hokkien noodle dish, is a staple in Singaporean cuisine. Originating from Zhangzhou, China, this dish is relished not only in Singapore but also in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines. What makes Lor Mee distinctive is its thick, starchy gravy, made from corn starch, spices, meats, seafood, and eggs. It's a versatile dish, often served with a variety of ingredients like ngo hiang, fish cake, different types of meat dumplings, and boiled eggs. Traditional toppings include fried fish, although this is less common now. For an extra kick, vinegar and garlic can be added​​.
