Nutrition Info: Calories in Lor Mee

Lor Mee

Lor Mee

Lor Mee is a local Singapore dish inspired from Hokkien heritage.

It consists of thick flat yellow noodles (lor mee) in a starchy broth of braised stock soup containing pork, fish cake, braised egg and slices of chinese five spices sausage.  It can be served with vinegar, minced garlic/ginger, chilli paste, half a boiled egg and even bits of fried fish (depending on the store and how much they charge)

Nutrition Information:  1 serve (450g)

  • Energy: 383 calories
  • Protein: 14.6 g
  • Carbs: 55 g
  • Fat: 11g

This dish has a surprisingly low amount of calories for a local dish! (even I was surprised) It’s because of the fact the thick gravy is from a clear stock that has corn starch to thicken it – as it doesn’t have cream and too much fat it keeps the calories for the dish low. This is actually quite a healthy option compared to all other local dishes.  I always recommend 300 – 400 calories per meal to consume the correct amount of calories for the day – and this meal falls into that category.

This is a great option for weight management!  Enjoy!!
