Old Airport Road Lor Mee (Tampines)


Old Airport Road Lor Mee Prawn Mee
旧机场卤面虾面

Everyday Come Coffee Shop 天天來
BLK 477 Tampines Street 44

Opening hours: 10am - 3pm

According to my dad, the store was doing so-so at Old Airport Road. It seems to be extremely popular here in Tampines; super long queues, huge orders, sell-outs by noon..


Lor Mee 卤面
$3 (no fish)
$4 
$5
Very generous serving of ingredients with tasty gravy. Well marinated egg, thick slices of fish and ngor hiang. Some foodies may find the gravy not garlic-y enough, but I think it's perfect. Hints of salted fish at the right amount of thickness.


Prawn Noodles 虾面
$4/$5 (软骨虾面)
$5 (大虾面)
Not impressed by the very mediocre prawn noodles. Let's just stick with Lor Mee.

fake prawns, those are white feet shrimp. real prawns have very long whiskers, almost a foot long, and the spike horn is longer than the head on prawn. It happens here in Korea also, merchant trying to save money and trick customer -_-

Actually they are a cheaper option of FRESH WATER prawns, which has grey legs and short whiskers. I do agree that we deserve the REAL DEAL sea water prawns for the price we are paying though...

I would like to disagree. Tried their prawns and realised that they do use good tiger prawns (that's how we called in in sg) or grey big prawns. It's actually quite good of a price for what we are paying for a coffee shop noodles store.
