Loh Mei Specialist (湿卤味) @ People’s Park Food Centre
This hawker dish is delicious! I cannot find it anywhere else except at People’s Park Food Centre.
At first, I thought this was one of the those mainland China dishes that are invading the local hawker centres and food courts in recent years. After I did a quick search online, I was quite surprised to find out that this is a Singapore hawker fare of yesteryear.
Loh Mei (湿卤味), otherwise known as Lo Kai Yik (or stewed chicken wings in Cantonese) was said to be once a common fare in Singapore. Now, this stall may be the only one selling it.
A serving of Loh Mei comes with stewed chicken wings, pork, cuttlefish, tau pok, vegetables and a whole lot of rojak stuff. It is eaten together with rice or you can also order the version with noodles.
It’s rather hard to describe the exact taste as there’s no close cousin to this among the standard Singapore hawker fare. Go try it before even this stall disappears. 🙂
