Lobster Noodles

$24.90 ยท 5 Reviews

Run by young hawkerpreneur, Desmond, this stall in 628 Ang Mo Kio Market sees long, snaking queues of up to an hour on weekends. Our Burpple Tastemakers and many others in the queue find it worth the wait, thanks to its robust soup and generous portions of seafood. Various shellfish are available here, from Big Prawn Noodles ($8) to Crayfish Noodles ($13) and the crowd favourite, Lobster Noodles ($24.90). The latter comes with two halves of an Asian Lobster, or Colombian Lobster if the Asian lobster is not in season ($29.90). Tastemaker Justin Teo notes that the fresh lobster meat can be "easily removed from its shell with a light pull using chopsticks". The umami-rich soup owes its distinct taste and colour to the use of prawn shells and pork ribs, not MSG. Tastemaker Felicia Sim also loves how each bowl, regardless of size, comes loaded with clams, which really sweeten the soup. Pro tip: Noodles and ingredients run out quickly, especially on rainy days, so best to head down early to snag a bowl!
Avg Price: $25 per person

Much publicity on social media lately that I have to go personally grade this ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Extreme long queue were there to greet me on this wet Saturday morning.... the long wait had me salivating while contemplating what to savor on the menu!!! Price tag of $24.90 for its premier Lobster Noodles is unheard of considering serving from a neighborhood hawker centre. One full Columbia Lobster, 2 big prawns and loads of pipis. Sweet soup based with fried garlic floating above. Whatever style you choose, be it prawns, crayfish, lobsters all come with the same soup based. I personally feel the chef had been slightly generous on the ่Šฑ้›•้…’ portion hence making the soup a little bitter at the end. I salute the entrepreneurship of the young owner for this extremely daring price tag. Conclusion: similarly to White Seafood Beehoon or Wen Wen Prawn Noodles at Geylang Bahru, traditionally prawn noodles transformation. Yumminess 3.5/5 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

The price tag was definitely hefty for hawker centre but I guess still pretty worth as we are talking about an entire lobster here.
Be prepared to wait in queue for at least an hour over the weekends as that was what I did before landing myself a bowl. At least the broth didn't disappoint - imagine your usual Prawn Mee soup but richer, more of that umami-ness and you can taste more dimension with the interesting addition of chinese wine!
After my visit, I say go for the Crayfish bowl ($13) instead (3 whole crayfish, prawns and clams!!) for more bang for your buck!

It's been a long time since I visited this market, which is the market of my childhood. This stall run by young hawkers caught my eye and I am SO glad I tried it. The soup was super sweet and rich from the addition of clams to the stock. Paid $8 for a bowl of the big prawn noodles, and it came with 4 plump and fresh big prawns, clams and some pork belly (no limp slices of blanched lean pork here!). Even the $5 bowl of normal prawn noodles would be satisfying enough cos man, that soup is SO good. They also had crayfish and lobsters on display, and I saw plenty of people tucking into the lobster noodles with much gusto. So pleased to see young hawkers succeeding - you know it's good when aunties and uncles queue up for you in a market already filled with good food ๐Ÿ’ฏ
