178 LOR MEE
30 Seng Poh Road
Tiong Bahru Market & Food Center
Operating Hours : 6am - 9.30pm (Closed on Wed)
Was in Mount Faber which was a short drive to Tiong Bahru Food Centre ... we decided to have lor mee for dinner.
Headed for the 178 Lor Mee, which is well-known for its shark meat nuggets.
Without a long queue, I got my order of Lor Mee in a flash.
Top it up with chopped garlic, chilli and black vinegar ... there I have a bowl of black gooey noodles.
For $3, I get a bowl of delicious lor mee with slices of fish cake, braised meat and 3 pieces of shark nuggets fried to a golden brown.
The shark nuggets were crispy ... has a very light fishy taste but goes really well with the noodles.
Noodles cooked to the right texture with a nice bite to it.
The gravy (lor chap) is savory and flavorful, not overly thick or starchy.
178 Lor Mee is definitely one of the best lor mee in Singapore.
I do like the traditional lor mee with braised meat and eggs, ngor hiang and minced fish meat too.
But with shark meat nuggets as its distinguishing factor, it is self-explanatory why this lor mee at Tiong Bahru is so well sought after.
dBilicious Index : 4/5
178 Lor Mee moved to a more prominent location in the same food center ... facing the escalator entrance.
Notice some changes, now they served "ngor hiang", hokkien meat dumpling for $1 ( 2 pcs ).
This time I was a little disappointed with my bowl of sticky noodle served.
Very little gravy was given and the shark's nuggets didn't taste as good as it used to be.
The crispy bits was also missing ...
