While price tag is on the steeper side but the prawn noodles here is good. Springy noodles, fresh prawns; thought the broth is quite well balanced with a slight sweetness to it!

🍴 First time trying this and we think it has taken the spot of among our favourite prawn noodles! The star was definitely the rich and flavourful prawn broth that had a creaminess probably from the long simmering of pork bones. Their signature big prawn noodle came with 3 giant prawns, kangkong, and beansprouts and differed from the prawn noodle (that comes with small prawns) in having a slightly richer prawn flavour given the infusion of the big prawns in the broth. We also enjoyed the pork rib version as the ribs had tender meat that easily fell off the bone. We went with beehoon mee and enjoyed the mix with their yellow mee being one of the better textures around - chewy and springy - and the beehoon nicely soaking up the broth. There was a much larger mee:beehoon portion though and we would have preferred for slightly more beehoon 😅. Already looking for a return visit and to trying out their dry version as well
⚠️ Be prepared to wait for this popular #prawnnoodle in the East. We went at noon on a weekday and waited 35 mins.

I got my fix with liver added this time because I was told it’s especially good for those who’ve recently recovered from Dengue. Not that I need any prompting since I already love how young hawker Watson is a master at cooking liver. Every piece tastes really clean and practically melts in the mouth.
If you are a lover of liver, you need to add it to your prawn noodles too.


But I am thrilled to announce, Circuit Breaker or not, there is NO COMPROMISE to the taste of Da Dong Prawn Noodles.
If you order the soup version, they pack their famously concentrated-with-rich-umami-goodness broth separate from everything else. Therefore, if you’re not having it immediately, you can warm up the broth before pouring it on without affecting the al dente-ness of the noodles or overcooking the prawns. We didn’t have to since it‘s only a short drive home.
As for the dry version, it is also epic shiokness once you splash on a tiny amount of the robust soup and give the noodles and savoury housemade sambal a proper toss.
My standard order is the $10 portion with prawn and pork rib and I recommend you just zero in on that. There’s a generous portion of noodles (I go for a mix of yellow mee and thick beehoon) and comes with large prawns that have been peeled and halved lengthwise as well as a few pieces of flavourfully-simmered, tender pork ribs. Sometimes, if I want to take things up a notch, I add on pig’s intestines or liver. They do both very well.

Comes with prawns, bean sprouts, kang kong, pork ribs and crispy pork lard. The ribs were tender soft which detach from the bone easily. Soup was more creamy rather than rich and it’s not refillable. A little pricy for the portion served too 》$8/regular

Chili was normal, pork ribs and prawns were not bad. But I really liked how their did they kway teow, it's soft and almost sticky, quite different from my favourite stall at yuhua. Their sauce base was also quite fragrant, if subtle.

Theres no refill for the soup and for good reason, it's the most intense bowl of prawn broth I've had. It's pure prawn umami and sweetness, not like other places with gao soup beefed up by pork stock. Sip slowly, I needed to take gulps of water in between sips lol.

Definitely a must-try, I love super gao prawn broths and this is the first bowl up to my standard

Edit: learnt that there's pork broth lol but nonetheless super gao in prawn flavours
