The battle of Lor Mee =)

While i was in SCDF, HQ, there used to be a wonderful noodles stall selling great Lor Mee on tuesdays - rich starchy gravy filled with lots of piquant vinegar, and alot alot of minced garlic which gives you wonderfully fiery dragon breath afterwards. So Lor Mee was something I'd always enjoy eating, and basically it's just thick yellow noodles in a starchy savoury gravy (Lor) and topped with fried bits, ngoh hiang, pork, even an egg, sometimes even shark meat. Thus the true test of a Lor Mee is the LOR - good Lor Mee should have great Lor that is fragrant and smooth and savoury.

Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee
This is located in Old Airport Road - and it was not bad. Topped with shark meat and other garnishes. Quite fragrant. Not that mind-blowing though. (7/10)

Bukit Purmei Lor Mee
Located at Block 109, Bt Purmei Road. Super long queue sia, i almost died (of hunger). It has a really nice flavoured lor made with pork and some seafood, if I'm nto wrong, and sipping it slowly, one enjoys the fragrant taste of the Lor with a hint of sour and a hint of salty. Very rich. The toppings were nice, fried crisp bits. The queue is realy long, though. (7.5/10)

Yuan Chun Lor Mee
Amoy street; Has probably the best Lor I have found so far - very fragrant and tasty and savoury, just perfect with a dash of black vinegar (make it a generous dash), alot of minced ginger, pepper, and red cut chilli - absolutely brilliant. The ingredients are not so good (just normal) but the noodles and beansprouts in the Lor was just good enough for me. Great. (8/10)
