Zhi Xiang Special Lor Mee @ Toa Payoh – Nice Lor mee With Nice Shoestring Yam Fries
The word “Special” attracts our attention and drawn our curiosity.
The “Special” is not in the bowl of lor mee, in fact, you get all the usual toppings from the hard-boiled egg, Ngoh Hiang, fish cake slices, bean sprouts, choice of braised fatty pork belly or the braised lean pork. Chopped garlic, sambal chilli and the Chinese coriander gave the extra punch to the overall flavour.
The “lor” or the gravy is the soul of the good lor mee, Zhi Xiang Special Lor Mee serves the traditional thick and rich gravy style lor mee and we tend to agree it has a very well-seasoned gravy, besides the right viscosity which was not too watery or starchy, the nice flavour of the gravy gave the bowl of lor mee a good boost in the taste.
While talking all about the bowl of lor mee, you cannot miss out not to mention the “Special” of Zhi Xiang Special Lor Mee – the shoestring yam fries!
Served separately in a bowl, the deep fried shoestring yam was indeed quite a nice complement to the bowl of lor mee, the yam has a hint of sweetness and the crispiness combined was simply addictive, you can choose to eat it on its own and it was just like munching a package of “MAMEE” Ready-To-Eat instant noodle.
Zhi Xiang Special Lor Mee @ Toa Payoh Our Verdict
