I have never been a fan but because we were in the neighbourhood and this is my daughter's favourite, we decided to come here for our lunch on a sunday noon. we ordered 4 bowls of prawn noodles- 3 at $8.80cts and 1 at 10.80cts. and when the prawn noodles came, we got a shock at how "big" the portion of the noodles were. My son, a 13 yo, commented he could finish the bowl of noodles in just a few mouthfuls! the portions were pathetically small that they reminded me of the food sold at schools' tuckshops/canteens. While the jumbo prawns for my 10.80 were quite big, the gravy (mine was dry version) had no kick at all. it came with a small bowl of soup which tasted rather bland for me. Even my daughter, who had been a fan, was disappointed and replied "no" when i asked if she would come back again. The $$8.80 version was just as 'sad' looking with some small sized prawns swimming in a broth with little noodles. This is close to rip-off. We also ordered the ngoh-hiang from the neighboring stall and that was equally bad too. The ngoh-hiang and fishballs came "charred" and tasted funny- i reckon its a case of deep frying in a pot of overused oil.
i am a big fan of prawn noodles but this has to be one of the most over-rated stalls i have tried. would i come back again? the answer is simple. NO.
