One of the best lor mee in town

The soul of the lor mee very much relies heavily in the gravy; 178 gravy was not overly thick or too starchy and not as bland or diluted, perhaps this is one of the best balance lor mee gravy we have tried so far that able to achieve a more balance taste.

Flavorful Lor Mee

Even without the usual braised egg, and ngoh hiang (five-spiced minced meat rolled in beancurd skin), this stall's sticky, slurp-worthy dish helped put Tiong Bahru Market on the map. Although at $2.50, you won’t get the frittered nuggets of shark meat, the bowl of “braised noodles” (lor mee in Chinese dialect) is full of flavour, thanks, in part, to the add-on minced garlic topping. It is also crunchy in texture from the deep-fried batter, and hearty from its medium-thick, flat egg noodles. If you’re looking for the condiment-laden version, the most bang-for-the-buck dish we’ve found is at Ma Bo Lor Mee at ABC Brickworks Food Centre. For $2.50, you get a generous portion of noodles topped with ngoh hiang, fish cake, fish fritters, braised meat and a whole braised egg. Now if only the sauce was less cloying.

The last time I visit Tiong Bahru Market & Food Centre was probably more than 5 years ago. My memory of Tiong Bahru Food Centre was bad air circulation, small and crowded. The place has since undergone renovation and now it is more spacious with good air circulation.

There were many reviews on Lor Mee 178. Since I have never tried the stall's lor mee, I ordered a bowl to find out why so many people queued up for their lor mee.

The winner for the Lor Mee ($2.50) has to be the deep fried shark nuggets. The shark meat was surprisely flavourful and moist inside the crispy fritter. Different from other stalls, the bowl of lor mee did not have the usual braised egg, braised pork and ngor hiang. I also found the Lor Mee gravy lacked robutness. You can ask to to add the deep fried shark nuggets at an extra $0.50.
