This was Mr J's recommendation, who proclaimed it the best lor mee in Singapore. Ironically, the stall serves up Penang-style lor mee and Penang favourites like prawn noodles, and not the Singapore-styled lor mee.
For those that say that the north doesn't have any good food, here's a stall specializing in Penang classics to prove you wrong.
The Penang Lor Mee ($4 for large) wasn't something you'd expect of the typical local lor mee. The gravy's strongly accented by belachan, so a striking fermented prawn paste flavour comes through every spoonful of the thick viscous gravy. A bunch of kangkong and sprinkling of pickled radish add crunch and a sour tinge to the richness of the dish. We liked this, very much actually. But strictly as a matter of preference, and if push comes to shove, we'd take our local lor mee over the Penang version.
The shop front, it's obviously well-liked, seeing as there are a couple of TV endorsements plastered across the signbboard.
