You won’t typically find lor mee and laksa at the same hawker stall, but that’s exactly what Ang Mo Kio Loh Mee Laksa specialises in. The stall has been a popular haunt for over a decade now, consistently drawing in long queues. The lor mee features a gravy that is perfectly gooey, neither too thick nor too diluted with notes of Chinese spices shining through. Each portion also comes with fried ngoh hiang, pork slices, and beansprouts. On the other hand, the laksa has a rich and spicy gravy with the usual suspects of tau pok, fish cake, egg and cockles.
