Blanco Court Prawn Mee 白兰阁街大虾面 – prawn sweetness in the broth!

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.   Please refer to www.ieatandeat.com for details review.

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.

Apparently, this heritage hawker is actually cousins to the prawn noodles at Beach Road, Jln Sultan and Joo Chiat, so if you thought the flavours at these stalls seemed familiar, it's because they all belong to the same extended family!

We had:

1) Dry Prawn Noodles ($4.80): the magic lies with the chilli paste, heavy with hae bee and oodles of chilli powder, it was both fiery and sweet. To top it off, the prawns were fresh, greens crunchy and noodles springy. 

2) Sliced Prawn Noodle Soup ($4.80): I didn't like how the rice vermicelli was more like a thinner version of laksa noodles than actually skinny beehoon, and it did little to soak up the sweet broth rich with pork ribs and prawn heads. Even if the prawns were split down the middle to appear deceptively plentiful in supply, I still thought they were plenty enough to make the bowl value-for-money.
