Lao Li Zi Char Super Eggy Fried Horfun

We saw this super eggy fried Horfun on a Facebook video and just had to come and try.  Lao Li is a casual zichar eatery at Simpang Bedok offering pretty decent Chinese stir fries. 

Well, the dish did not disappoint but didn't really wow us too much. Maybe we had built up excessive expectations! It's got just enough wok hei and flavour but for me, the eggs were still too runny. Maybe some will enjoy that. 

What we found surprisingly better was the Dai Lok Mee, or the Malaysian dark style Hokkien Mee. Deep intense umami flavours! Only letdown was the choice of udon-like noodles. Hey proper Hokkien noodles are available in Singapore now. No excuse. 

The other standout was the prawn paste chicken wings. Oooh perfection. Crispy, juicy and moreish!

We also tried the Sweet and Sour Pork, a dish highly recommended by other diners.  Nice that it came with lychees, but the pork was literally encrusted with sugar. Too sweet. 

Well, would I come back? Maybe for the chicken wings and other dishes. The collagen soup looked good too.
