This is one of those blogs which I have a hard time writing. I write best when I am enamoured with the food. So why even include this stall in the blog? Well, I was told this is the “Last of the Mohicans”, the “Final Dodo” even rarer than an albino Panda. Yep, I was told this is the one and only stall left in Singapore selling Loh Mei.
Damien raves about it and he looked like a little boy opening a christmas present when the dish finally came. I was of course looking forward to tasting this for the very first time. Such good food and yet its the only one left? Something just doesn’t make sense.
I guess I can describe this as Kway Chap with a Nam Zhor (fermented bean curd) sauce. You know how they say somethings are an acquired taste? This must be an example of it. Both Damien and smart loved it, whilest the rest of us were ambivalent. OK, the sauce was nice but I wouldn’t rave about it. 3.5/5
Not looking forward to eating this in the foreseeable future, but some others might drool over it. The real question is whether this is really the one and only stall in Singapore? Perhaps some of our readers care to shed some light on it?
