Everyone has their go-to spot for their lor mee fix, but there's one place that westies hold dear to their hearts (and stomachs) – Yew Tee Feng Zhen Lor Mee!

The original outlet at Yew Tee's S-11 coffee shop (787B Choa Chu Kang Dr) is not always open due to the owners' poor health, but their daughter, Jaycee, has been working to keep the tradition alive.

She gutsily opened up a second branch at Devan Nair Institute, (during the thick of COVID, no less!), which is just a short walk away from IMM and Ng Teng Fong Hospital.

The spacious al-fresco outlet serves the classic traditional lor mee ($4.50), and jazzed-up versions like the yuan yang fish lor mee ($5.50) and lor mee speciality ($5).

The traditional lor mee ($4.50) comes with fried pork balls, braised pork belly, fishcake and half a braised egg. Of course, it is a must to top it off with a dollop of garlic, some vinegar, and their homemade sambal chilli. The condiments are thoughtfully packed separately too!

Once we got home, all we had to do was to pour the separately packed gravy all over the noodles and heat everything up for a short while. Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), it wasn't a workout mixing everything together; the noodles weren't clumpy at all, and were easy to slurp up. 

The gravy itself had a nice, robust flavour, with a hint of sweetness. No doubt, the vinegar and garlic really helped to give the noodles some oomph, too.

The fried pork balls here are one of the key ingredients, and these are handmade in-house! We got a whiff of the fragrant five spices used, and each bite was well-seasoned with a light crisp.

Of course, we savoured the pork belly too, which was tender with nice meat to fat ratio.

If you're a fan of fish with your lor mee, try their yuan yang fish lor mee ($5.50), which comes with sizable chunks of flaky, fried fish.

A bite revealed how meaty and juicy they were, and since they're boneless, was a delight to eat.

If you opt for the lor mee speciality ($5), you're definitely getting a bang for your buck. It comes with ingredients like housemade egg beancurd and fish dumplings, and they certainly don't scrimp on the portion.

Look at that beautiful cross-section of the egg beancurd! It was crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside, with a nice eggy-ness to it.

If you're going to daobao your lor mee and worry that your precious food might turn into a sorry lump on the way back, there's no need to fret, as the gravy is packed separately from your noodles. Since the ingredients are deep-fried before you get your order, you can still look forward to fresh, crispy ingredients!

It's obvious that Jaycee takes great pride in upholding the quality of Yew Tee Feng Zhen Lor Mee. From the housemade ingredients to the generous portion of ingredients given, a bowl of lor mee is bound to warm your heart and fill up your stomach. As the second branch operates from 7am - 3pm on weekdays, and 7am - 1.30pm on Saturdays, make sure to drop by early!
