Came all the way to Tekka Food Centre for a good bowl of prawn mee. I would usually go for their soup version as the soup is really flavour but today's weather tells me to get the dry version instead.

I had the largest bowl at $5, opting for a mix of bee hoon and mee (yellow noodle) which also come with bean sprouts and four halved prawns that have been shelled and deveined.
A small bowl of prawn soup is served on the side.
Firstly, the prawns. I loved the freshness and firm bite but that is only because sea-caught prawns like ang ka and sua lor are used. Non of that farmed nonsense is being used here.
Apart from that, another highlight would be the tender and chewy pork slices which is one of my favorite things to eat. I seriously could not get enough of them and should have topped up for more.
Next, Theron home-made sambal chili is really good and the sauce-mix coated the bee hoon/mee really well. During the tossing, I even discovered crispy pork lard hidden at the bottom of the bowl!
The fried shallot crisps sprinkled on the noodle deserve a mention. Just the thought of peeling all those shallots alone is enough to make me cringe however, instead of relying on ready-made supplies, the stall make their own.
Indeed, the effort shows as the freshly fried shallot crisps are far more superior in terms of texture and aroma compared to the stale and rancid ones from the suppliers.
The prawn broth is on the lighter side, but still flavorful enough with crustacean essence and a underlying pork sweetness that does not make me feel guilty for finishing it to the last drop.

545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles is an old-school prawn noodles stall which is currently run by its 3rd-generation owners.

I love that their noodles doesn't taste alkaline and their sambal is really kick-ass good. Their deep fried lard comes in big shiok chunks.

Their broth is just simply out of this world. The flavours are intense and hearty. Unlike their competitors which tend to be overwhelmingly salty, you can taste the distinct sweetness of the prawns used to cook the broth.

Definitely one of the better prawn mee I have had recently!

I enjoyed the dry version more than the soup.
The savoury spicy homemade chilli tossed in noodle, served with prawn and slice pork (the slice pork a bit tough).

Huge thanks to Derrick (@sgfoodonfoot) for bringing us to this gem of a prawn noodle, helmed by a young hawkerpreneur and her recipe was passed down from several generations. Between the soup and dry version, the latter was totally on a league of its own, especially when you have their homemade sambal, lard oil and fried shallots tossed in beautifully with the kway teow and yellow egg noodle to give it an umami boost. There are no fanciful ingredients, just lean pork slices, prawns and bean sprouts to make it a well-rounded bowl of prawn noodles. When you order the dry version, you will get a bowl of the prawn broth which has a slight sweetness and packed with seafood flavour that you will crave for more from each slurp.

Tried this twice and the first time I felt it was a little bland; but the second time I asked for less ketchup and more chilli and it was really good. I must say the prawns are quite disappointing because they aren’t very big/juicy/fresh. But overall a very comforting eat and my prawn mee go-to at Little India!
