Lor Mee is everywhere but it is never easy trying to hunt down the tastiest of them all. Although the starchy gravy makes it one of the worst contenders for a light, hearty meal, it is that same thick, black gravy and that distinct taste of vinegar just makes you want to keep going back for more.
Feng Zhen Lor Mee
They say in order to master a craft, one needs to hone one’s skills for a total of years. The auntie who mans Feng Zhen Lor Mee has been selling lor mee for the past 46 years – that’s almost 5 times the recommended time so you can be sure that the lor mee here will likely put the others to shame.
The noodles are QQ and the braised eggs are braised to perfection, with the sauce even penetrating to the middle. For the best taste, it is recommended that you come in the morning within the first few hours of the stall opening since that is when the fried meatballs are at its crispiest.

Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee
Xin Mei Xiang was listed as one of Makansutra’s Street Food Masters back in 2007. Compared to many other places, the lor mee here is slightly less thick and starchy. The smoother texture of the dish makes it easier for customers to slurp up the noodles and the gravy that was thickened with eggs and seafood.
Surprisingly, this stall still does their lor mee in the traditional manner, using snapper flakes instead of Spanish mackerel flakes which are readily available. If you wish to know how traditional lor mee tastes, you have to visit this stall.

Hai Tang Lor Mee
For $3, you get a bowl of large-sized lor mee that is chock full of ingredients, such as braised eggs, fish cakes, mushrooms, and chunks of braised meat. It is also delicious to boot – thanks to the flavorful, yummy gravy that consists of a hint of a special blend of spices! However, compared to other
However, compared to other lor mee, the gravy isn’t as thick so it might not be to some people’s preferences.

Yuan Chun Famous Lor Mee
Nobody should admit to the fact that they have never tried Yuan Chun’s lor mee before. It is, after all, famous as stated in their signboard. This is a stall that sells solely lor mee and you know what they say about such specialised stalls. The ‘
The ‘lor’ from this stall may be thick but it is not at all sticky, making it rather interesting. It is also smooth, flavourful, yet doesn’t overpower the rest of the ingredients. Indeed, Yuan Chun is deserving of its name. Well, it did win the title of the best lor mee last year during the Singapore Hawker Masters ceremony.

Keng Heng (Whampoa) Teochew Lor Mee
Unlike all the other lor mee listed above, Keng Heng sells authentic Teochew-styled lor mee instead. That means that the lor mee here is served up with a generous amount of sambal belachan mixed in with the gravy instead of having just the gravy alone. As such, the Teochew-styled lor mee may not be everybody’s top choice when it comes to the important decision of picking the best lor mee in Singapore. Nonetheless, it is an interesting pick and a breath of fresh air compared to the other Hokkien-styled lor mee on this list.

Lor Mee 178
For those who dislike the starchy and thick consistency of lor mee should probably try the one from this stall instead. Not only that, Lor Mee 178 doesn’t serve the traditional snapper meat in their dish but instead, serves them with shark meat. Although the taste between
Although the taste between shark and normal fish meat is indistinguishable, it is still pretty interesting to have tasted shark meat before. The crunchy shark meat nuggets make for an interesting texture and pairs well with the smooth gravy of the lor mee.
