http://phuachiuyen.wordpress.com/2013/12/22/xin-mei-xiang-zheng-zong-lor-mee-old-airport-road-hawker-centre/There's loads of fishes in it...... which I think was great! However, the lor mee was a little too sticky to my liking. The paste actually doesn't have much taste either.And there's a forever long queue.......... which I don't know why, maybe because there's only 1 guy cooking? But I'm pretty amazed that there's always a queue each time I'm there.I personally don't think it's so good to the extent that I've to queue for at least 30 minutes for a bowl of lor mee.I doubt I'll queue again! continue reading

For complete review and pictures, please visit: http://theyummyyak.wordpress.com/2013/10/04/xin-mei-xiang-zheng-zong-lor-meeXin Mei Xiang serves one of the best lor mee I've tried. Not too fond of yellow egg noodles because of their alkaline taste, but the noodles here are just faintly alkaline and nicely al dente. The lor bak is tender, and the ngoh hiang aromatic and firm to the bite. Generous chunks of fresh fried angkoli or red snapper top the dish and make for a splendid sight. One thing to note is that fish is only served with medium ($4.00) and large ($5.00) portions of the dish.The make-or-break factor of a bowl of lor mee lies in its starchy gravy. Although the idea of starch upon starch may send a nutritionist into convulsions, the gravy at Xin Mei Xiang successfully achieves an optimum viscosity of being just thick enough to coat every strand of noodle. Under the hands of a less skilled chef, the gravy would be gooey and too heavy to drink on its own. No such complaints from us - we slurped up every last bit of the gravy in her bowl, as though it were a soup. The black vinegar added a pleasant zing to the gravy which derived umami from the prawn-based stock, and the whole experience was made just a little spicy by the red, green and storemade chillies.The queue at Xin Mei Xiang one Sunday afternoon stretched for metres, and didn't show any sign of letting up as closing time approached. This despite the torrential downpour that drenched me completely as I ran from the MRT station to Old Airport Road Hawker Centre, making my Sunday a very gloomy one indeed. The things we do for food. If anything, I've learnt that there's nothing like a piping hot bowl of lor mee in cold weather. continue reading

I queued for approximately 1 hour for this stall on a Saturday afternoon...But I must say it's really worth the wait...The last time I was here, it was sold out...As the stall received such good ratings, I had a very high level of expectation...Everyone who has a bowl of this lor mee seems to have a satisfied look on their face...Lor Mee with good gravy and ingradient combine with chili, the taste is awesome... taste good and price is reasonable, THUMB UP!! continue reading

The FoodWent down to Old Airport Road hawker center for breakfast and decided to try the famous Lor Mee. Served with pork belly, half a egg, shredded fried fish, Ngoh hiangs. Taste wise to me, this stall has one of the best lor mee sauce with smooth, not too thick nor too thin and very flavourful old fashion taste. The ingredients used are very fresh too. The ServiceAs the stall is very famous for its Lor Mee, hence expected to see a long queue especially on weekends.The AmbienceAs the stall is in hawker center, i find that the place was well-ventilated and not stuffyThe PriceReasonably priced at $3 to $4 per bowlOverallI will definitely come back again and highly recommended to try this! continue reading

I have no doubt that this stall has the longest queue in this food centre. A good advice is to try avoiding the lunch hour. I ever waited for 30 minutes for my bowl of lor mee. The lor sauce is super thick and it served with chunky pieces of fish meat, braised meat and braised egg. I always asked for extra minced garlic to be added to give it a garlicky flavour and i like to have red cut chillies to go with it too. This is one of the most perfect lor mee. MUST TRY. continue reading
