This week Sabby went hunting for Lor Mee! This delicious Hokkien noodle dish features a distinctively thick dark brown gravy and is normally topped with braised chicken feet, pork meat & skin, hard boil egg, and beansprouts.
Some local friends highly recommended Restoran Joo Huat so I've decided to give it a try.
The service was very prompt and friendly - food arrived in less than 5 minutes despite the slight queue outside. A quick chat with the owner revealed that the stall is currently run by the second generation and they're still using their 30-year old family recipe!
Lor Mee (4.5/5)
The portion size came out larger than expected. For a "medium" order, they were very generous with the noodles and toppings.
The sauce is on the starchier side but with a good mix garlic puree and chilli sauce, it came out nicely balanced.
Toppings wise, the braised chicken feet and pork were tender and flavourful. It has all the makings of a good bowl of Lor Mee but if I were to nitpick, I'd have liked more variety to the toppings to help it stand out from the other stalls.
I only ordered the Lor Mee as it was an afternoon snack after a heavy breakfast. Apparently, the chicken rice and Char Kuay Teow is also good, I'll be back to try those next time!
