Xiang Ji Lor Mee Zha Jiang Mian @ Old Airport Rd
The Old Airport Food Centre is now a new battleground for the Lor Mee. The longest queue from Xin Mei Xiang to the all time popular 178 Tiong Baru Lor Mee and now the new kids on the board – Xiang Ji Lor Mee, Zha Jiang Mian.
Xin Mei Xiang is undoubtedly the king of all three with its perpetual queue and highly raved about in the media world although we don’t think it does justify for the wait. The competition is now heated up with Xiang Ji Lor Mee came into the picture and we are fairly interested with Xiang Ji Lor Mee, operated by the ex-staff of Xin Mei Xiang.
The serving come in the portion of $3/4/5/6 with proportionally increase in the serving size and the ingredients. The $4 portion already quite heavy with generous topping of fried fish flaked, slices of pork belly, Wu Xiang and braised egg.
The soul of a good Lor Mee largely depends on the bowl of gravy, Xiang Ji Lor Mee never disappoint us on this aspect, the gravy has the right viscosity and seasoning to stimulate the taste buds, the chili and minced garlic further boosted the overall flavour and not at all inferior to 178 Tiong Baru Lor Mee or even the Master of Lor mee Xin Mei Xiang.
What need to be improved are their toppings and ingredients which have some room to work on. It was too ordinary and lacked of the good quality when compared to the gravy.
Xiang Ji Lor Mee Zha Jiang Mian Verdict :
Overall, Xiang Ji Lor Mee has passed the requirement of a good lor mee with its savouring and exquisite flavours, it could well position to challenge the best Lor Mee stalls around including the two big brothers in the vicinity if the accompanied toppings could be made more robust.
