Prawn mee is my comfort food. This place have a really good prawn me soup. The soup is thick and tasty once u start drinking u wont have enough. The place is a bit hot but its cheap too. Definitely will come back again when I need my comfort food. Oh place will bring be too crowded except during lunch when many office workers will eat here.
Costing an average of $5 per bowl, this average dish is overpriced with little portion. The stall assistant even cleared my unfinished food when I just left the table for a while to replenish my soup because they always serves it only 1/3 full.
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.
Very average prawn noodles. Just because this stall has the option of big or small prawns doesn't mean it has good standard. Quantity is rather little. Once you have eaten Wah Kee and River South (Hoe Nam) prawn noodles, you would never go back to this stall again. Mediocre at best.
The soup is a very tasty, thick broth. Must try! Didn't feel thirsty after the meal either (i.e. seems like no MSG!)
Value for money comfort food :)
Friendly and efficient staff too.
The place is slightly warm, but a cold homemade barley drink can remedy that.
