Singaporeans can travel the distance for food, even all the way far-west to Taman Jurong Food Centre for this one stall – Feng Zhen Lor Mee 鳳珍鹵麵. (Also read: 10 Best LOR MEE In Singapore)
I will leave you to decide if it is worth trip, especially if you stay say at Tampines or Pasir Ris (or further).
Taman Jurong Food Centre located at 3 Yung Sheng Road, is not near to any MRT stations.
However, there are stalls foodies head for including 58 Minced Meat Noodle, Tom’s Kitchen (for Western food), Sikkander’s Briyani, Butternut, Xin Sheng Gor Hiang Prawn Cracker, and BBQ Seafood.
Feng Zhen Lor Mee is recently awarded a a Michelin Plate in the MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2021. The other two Michelin Plate stalls are Tien Lai Rice Stall 天來飯店 (for roast meats) and Yong Kee Claypot Bak Kut Teh.
Fun-fact: The food centre was previously known as Yung Sheng Food Centre or “60 stalls” 六十档 in the past, as there were 60 permanent stalls there. Feng Zhen was one of the 60 stalls back then.
Long queues are a common sight at Feng Zhen Lor Mee, opened from 5am in the morning.
While the efficient service is commendable, try to avoid peak lunch time though as the line does go a loop to the back.
There are both the basic Lor Mee ($3) and Fish Lor Mee ($4, $5) available included with fish flakes.
In terms of presentation, there were so many toppings such as scrumptious deep-fried meatballs that the noodles weren’t even visible.
Here’s what I liked about the Lor Mee: the gravy had good consistency, moreish with well-balanced flavours that went amazingly well with the tender meatballs.
If there was one thing I needed to nit-pick, some parts of the ’lor’ was not well stirred, so could be clumpy at parts.
Perhaps people who prefer something richer (”zhong kou wei”) would feel it needs more ‘oomph’ and have to add more vinegar.
But amazing flavours hitting most of the right notes and arriving suitably warm, it is no wonder this stall has all the great elements to attract Lor Mee fans to the stall.
However, some people may feel it is “over-rated” because the difference would be subtle, and not far better than say the above-average ones in the neighbourhood.
Besides Lor Mee, they also serve fried prawn rolls which make for tasty appetizers to go with your meal.
