This is one of my all time favourite dish for breakfast when i was young. The coffee shop near us recently started selling this, but it tastes quite bland and i have to make so many special requests to make it abit nicer. I am so freaking proud that i know how to make this now. My sauce is extremely flavourful and i absolutely loved every bit of it. My biggest surprise is when my fussy ang moh husband cleaned his dish and told me how much he loved it. Freshly made homemade noodles, tender pork belly slices that is braised to perfection in a flavourful gravy that made me proud the minute i tasted it. My secret to the gravy, besides the spices, is the addition of chopped black fungus. It gave the gravy a depth of flavour and texture. I can proudly say that this is the best bowl of Lor Mee that i have ever eaten!
