Heng Kee Lor Mee @ Bendemeer Market

This stall in the Bendemeer market serves one of the nicest lor mee.

You might be wondering what made their lor mee tastier than others. The answer lies not in any secret recipe but simply in the addition of those wonderful fried pork bits. It provides that much needed crunch to the otherwise gluey bowl of noodles and it is especially yummy even when the fried pork bits are soaked in the lor mee gravy.

Hence, I always like to save the best for last!

Priced at $2.50 for a regular bowl, it is a definite must-try! But be prepared for a long queue on weekends where the stall normally closes as early as 10am!

And a word of caution to those with special requests such as doing away with certain ingredients like egg or braised pork etc, you would most certainly be frowned upon by the less-than-courteous hawker. :)

Hi there!

My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site Food on Foot recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

Warm regards,

P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:
