Amoy St Lor Mee is now open at Boon Keng

Lor mee aficionados, Amoy St Lor Mee is now open in Bendemeer Shopping Mall, just outside Boon Keng MRT Station! This newest stall adds to their growing list of locations, spanning Amoy Street Food Centre, Whampoa Drive Food Centre, Jurong East, Fernvale Hawker Centre, Ubi, and Senja Hawker Centre.

The new stall, like its other branches, only serves one item: Lor Mee ($4.50), though it also comes in a Jumbo Lor Mee ($5.50) version. Of course, you can then customise your bowl of the stewed noodles with any of their add-ons. Choose from Noodle ($0.50), Mee Hoon ($0.50), Braised Pork ($1), Batang Fish ($1.50), Mixed Fried ($1) and Onsen Egg ($1).

Getting the basic $4.50 bowl means you won’t get the jammy-yolked marinated egg, but you’ll still be served a portion of everything else. If you’re wondering what Mixed Fried refers to, here at Amoy St Lor Mee, it includes ngoh hiang, that’s said to be house-made!

This Popular Lor Mee Stall Has Been Around For More Than 50 Years

The braised pork belly, egg, fried Batang, and even the chilli sauce are also reportedly made in-house, according to the original recipe that dates back to 1959, when these noodles used to be sold from a push cart behind Jit Poh Building, along Keppel Road.

Unlike at other lor mee stalls, the viscous, savoury lor gravy here is thickened not with corn or tapioca starch, but plain flour. This switch makes it such that the gravy doesn’t turn watery as you dig in, and is meant to be less heavy on the stomach as well. Choose to have it with thick yellow Hokkien noodles, thin bee hoon, or a mix of both. Then tweak the flavours with vinegar, sliced red chilli, minced fresh garlic, and fresh coriander!

Other lor mee stalls of note in Singapore include Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee, which has been around for more than 50 years, and Feng Zhen Lor Mee, a Michelin-recognised institution that’s been serving lor mee since 1988.
