i have not tried the hawker stalls at the temporary ghim moh food centre since they shifted from the previous location at blk 20 which is currently under renovations.

today after my hair cut at about 1030am i decided to drop by & try some stalls on 2.2.2016.

i never really like lor mee much as they are starchy & gluey.

i remember i had very good one at amoy street market level 2 but that must be 20+years ago, not sure they are still there.

i also remember the long queue at tiong bahru market level 2 (there are more than 1 stalls). again that must be scores of years.

more recently my daughter had a S$2.50 lor mee at hai tang lor mee @ mei ling market & food centre & i tried a bit.

it was really good & that brought back memories. broth was very tasty, good flavourful fish taste, mildly starchy, good amount of ingredients.

this hock lye lor mee though was a thumbs down by comparison.

it was edible but mediocre, the broth was not flavourful like hai tang. so while it was a passable noodles, it was also the reason i don’t take lor mee much.
