Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee has been around for more than 50 years

In case you didn’t know, lor mee is a traditionally Hokkien noodle dish that has its roots in Xiamen, China. With its thick, starchy, dark-coloured gravy, this dish isn’t typically on top of Singaporeans’ must-eat lists. Of the few stalls that serve this dish today, Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee is one of them, with a history that is said to date back more than 50 years!

Located on the second floor of Hougang Hainanese Village Centre, Lorong Ah Soo Lor Mee only serves one dish, Lor Mee, in two sizes: $4 and $5.

What’s more, they only operate from 12pm to 3:30pm, for three-and-a-half hours, each day. This is only as long as they’ve got food to serve, which with the long queues is usually not the case.

When you pick up your order, you’ll have to add your own garnishes and condiments. Help yourself to as much fresh minced garlic, sliced red chilli, and chopped spring onions as you wish, and drizzle black vinegar to taste.

The fresh, sharp flavours of these, and the acidity of the vinegar, help to cut through the viscous, thick lor mee gravy so it doesn’t get too jelak.

What makes this bowl of lor mee even more popular is the generous serving of liao in each bowl. There’s ngoh hiang, AKA five spice rolls, bean sprouts, shredded duck meat, braised egg, and slices of fish cake.
