178 Sharks Meat Lor Mee: Tiong Bahru Market Part 3 of 6

Yet another stall with a 3 digit name! Beside this one, I know of 115 Dessert, 132 Mee Poh and 91 Fried Kway Teow. I mean, we are living in an age where nobody remembers the 8 digit phone number anymore and yet we are made to remember all these 3 number stalls. What’s the story? Well, at least it is easy to SMS. This stall is one of those new rising stars, having been around for only 2 years, it has already got long queues and been in the Bryan Wong show. So I was fortunate to arrive after the peak period where I did not have to line up for my Lor Mee. The special draw of the stall is of course its famous Shark’s Meat fritters which are added to the Lor Mee. Ah, at least now we are making use of the whole shark and not just the fins! If you ask me, I really don’t think shark’s meat is that unique in taste. It tastes much like any other white fish. But the Lor (sauce) is very tasty and they give lots of crispy crunchy stuff that is awesome with the Lor. I also really like their crispy meat fritters, very pang (savoury). This is how Lor Mee should be like: Crispy fried stuff drowned in a gooey tasty Lor! There are some things I miss though, like the braised pork, ngor hiang and braised egg. Conclusion Though its been a long time since I ate Lor Mee, this one really got my vote for one of the outstanding Lor Mees in Singapore. 4.25/5
