9 Lor Mee stalls in Singapore you don't want to miss!

Lor Mee or called 卤面 in chinese is a Hokkien noodle dish that originates from Zhang Zhou, China. It is usually served in a thick viscous gravy that is made from corn starch, spices, and eggs. The usual ingredients added are braised pork, fried battered fish, braised egg, and ngoh hiang. Some stalls are more unique such as fried shredded yam or shark fish nuggets. Tbh, I don't see a lot of places selling Lor Mee nowadays so I have compiled a list of 9 Lor Mee stall from Singapore.



REVIEW: TIPSY PENGUIN AT TAMPINES - DELICIOUS WAGYU CUBES AND CRAB MEAT CAPELLINI

A group of penguins is called "Huddle". The concept here is to have your friends over and gather at Tipsy Penguin. And of course, who can forget about alcohol when it's called "TIPSY" penguin. They have a variety of alcohol from draft beer, mocktails, shots, soju, red and white wine, sparkling, whiskey and house pour such as gin, vodka, tequila, etc. 

It's basically a hybrid of Asian fusion bistro, sports bar, and live music haunt. If you got a large group with a minimum spending of $250, you can get their private KTV room to sing to your heart's content. It's a multi-concept restaurant that you don't want to miss! It is also located within walking distance from Tampines MRT Station.

REVIEW: KIZUNA CAFE - NEW CAFE IN POTONG PASIR

KIZUNA was originally an old bakery called Shangri-La Confectionary and Delicatessen in Potong Pasir. It was recently revamped into this cafe called KIZUNA by their 3rd generation. I have never stepped into the previous confectionary having worked around the area for quite a while. I only noticed it when the new cafe opened. They have managed to retain the door that was in the bakery and used it as the main door into the cafe. You can spot the old mooncake mold used by the bakery as the door handle too.

I ordered the @kizunasg mini croissant set ($7.80). The flaky and buttery croissant is cut in the middle. My set consists of the more instagrammable Slipper Lobster 🦞 (+$3) and Egg 🥚 Mayo. 



REVIEW: PINK FISH SINGAPORE - FROM NORWAY TO SINGAPORE

What's not to love about Norwegian Salmon! Hailing from Norway, Norwegian salmon casual fast-food chain store Pink Fish sets ashore and opened its first stall outside of their home country in Jewel Changi. True to their fish theme, You can find engraved fish scale patterns throughout their premise. Allegedly Norway's answer to Mcdonalds or KFC too according to the internet.

REVIEW: PLATFORM 1094 for some Harry Potter Magic - Harry potter themed cafe in Singapore

I am a huge fan of harry potter and I once owned all the books but I sold some of them. LOL 
Platform 1094 is a Harry Potter-themed cafe and their name is inspired by the infamous Platform 9 3/4 from the HP movies. It is the first wizard themed cafe in Singapore. 

The interior features brick walls, wood-paneled ceilings, and soft chandelier light fixtures reminisce of the castle while chairs decorated with colorful stag prints are matched with long wooden tables. Does it make you feel like you're at Hogwarts?

A selection of props including the iconic harry potter black-framed spectacles and wands and the wizard robes are provided, allowing guests to truly get into character to fulfill their ultimate cosplay purpose. 

If you're reminiscing about the Wizarding World of harry potter in Osaka, or can't afford a trip to Wizarding World just yet, here's your chance to a pretty great alternative. The cafe is along Serangoon Road and is a pretty easy find. 

What to order: 
Expect some nice drinks such as Mr. Lich's Flaming Brew. It is basically blue curacao liqueur, lemonade, and Bacardi rum, and the flame is caused by sprinkling cinnamon powder. This is THE drink that everyone orders when they come here.  Does it remind you of the Goblet of Fire?

I also ordered The Goal’s Seeker which caused a whopping $15. Not worth for the money I paid but oh so cute.. with the tiny golden snitch nestled on top of the chocolate.

For the mains, I ordered the Crab Meat Aglio Olio ($17) which consists of crab meat, smoked salmon, flying fish roe. The al dente spaghetti was tossed in beurre monte sauce. This was so good!

REVIEW: YUM CHA SINGAPORE 飲茶酒樓 - ICONIC DIMSUM PLACE IN SINGAPORE

I'm sure Yum Cha 飲茶酒樓 is already a well-known Dim Sum restaurant in Singapore. What do I think of when Dim Sum comes to my mind, I will always think of having a Breakfast Buffet with pushcarts and also high tea buffet. They are undoubtedly one of the best Dim Sum restaurants in Singapore.

Weekday High tea Dim Sum Buffet
$26.80 for adults
$16.80 for child

Here are some of the dishes I had when I dined at Yum Cha earlier in March for the International Guide Dogs Days collaboration.

Mini Abalone Siew Mai
Siew Mai, the Chinese steamed pork and shrimp dumplings, is one of the most popular items at dim sum restaurants. They are generous in the fillings as you can see that it's brimming outwards! Topped with a mini Abalone for that touch of prosperity and premium. This was only available in March.

Crispy Roasted Pork
The pork is tender and crunchy with delicious crispy and perfectly golden skin (crackling) with mustard sauce for you to dip in.

Crispy Youtiao Prawn Cheong fun
The traditional Chee Cheong Fun but with youtiao and prawns inside. The succulent prawn is wrapped with a layer of crispy you tiao before enclosed by a thin layer of rice noodle sheet. Not every Cheong fun has that crunch.

Fragrant Pork Slice with Crushed Garlic
Cucumber slice wrapped around by a piece of pork slice drizzled in a medley of crushed garlic and in-house special sauce.

Honey Roast Char Siew and Crispy Roasted Duck
How about some roasted meat?! The honey roasted char siew is marinated with honey for the sweet taste and luscious glistening caramelization, The roasted duck has this irresistibly crispy skin and tender duck meat.

Poached spinach with regular egg, century & Salted egg
A must-order dish whenever we dine out at tze char store. The century egg and salted egg added the umami to the flavourful broth with the regular egg adding that silkiness to thicken the broth and bind the whole dish together.
