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)

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!!
