Had prawn with ribs as well as sliced prawn with ribs. The ribs were great, succulent, soft, tasty. The prawn though were under-served -- 1.5 prawn for a prawn mee??! And the sliced prawn.. they were dried shrimp size. The soup was so-so for a shop that has "Prawn Mee" on its name -- it has little prawn flavor. I'd be okay if this is Blanco Court Rib Mee. Overall unsatisfying prawn mee with intriguing pork ribs. Try it if you are passing by, but not worth a pilgrimage.
Blanco Court Prawn Mee occupies one of the shop houses along Beach Road, we were there early in the Sunday morning and the city area was much a dead town in the weekend morning. When we reached there, most of the shops still have it doors shut but the crowd already occupied half of the shop, looks like there is always a pool of prawn mee die-hard fans.
We ordered the dry and soup version.
The dry version served with bean sprout, vegetable, lard and few shrimp, the sauce was not too spicy and right at the note, the taste may not as good as Da Tou Xia Prawn Mee with lacking or insufficient dry shrimp (hia bee) to perk up the taste, it may not too refine but still comforting to the taste buds.
The soup version came with pork rib which was a little tough, prawns were similar to the dry version and nothing to complaint about. It was the broth that we are more particular, since we were there in the morning and the broth was fairly fresh with not much of the additional seafood flavouring added through the subsequent cooking process of the prawns.
