[ signature “Chao da” (charred) ebi noodles ]
I love how the prawns are huge, grilled and sliced for easy peel to consume 🦐 🔥 the hand pulled noodles are so silky and softly QQ - perfect with the thick flavorful broth boiled with 40kg of prawn heads for 8-10 hours!?! Much effort into the details 💯

The restaurant is a contrast to the dated history of the mall with its modern take on some of the Singaporean classics. From its namesake, the main focus is using the prawn in most of its dishes, starting from the Signature Chao Da Ebi Noodles ($14.90) using a prawn stock that has been prepared for 8 to 10 hours using approximately 40 kilograms of prawn shells and heads. The dish is served with ramen noodles with a pair of charred tiger prawns and slices of seared chicken. Unfortunately, the egg was slightly overcooked as the yolk is no longer as runny as I would have hoped for.

Comparing with their other signature the Chao Da Ebi Pao Fan ($18.90), the latter was much more preferred as the addition of the dried shrimp elevated the umami-ness of the broth, which effectively gave it an additional layer of flavour and richness. To me, the broth takes precedence when it comes to both dishes while the accompanying tiger prawns are the secondary factor to provide the meaty chew texture. To change the profile of the broth, the restaurant also serves broth boosters in Truffle ($2.50), Mala ($1.90) and Miso ($1.90) that you can add to zhng up your meal.

When it comes to the sides, we tried the Ebi & Vege-Crispy Fritter ($5.90), Salted Mackerel Fried Chicken ($6.90), Chilled Tofu with Homemade Sauce ($4.90) and Ah Ma’s Achar Gone Fancy ($4.90). The crispy fritter pays homage to the Japanese ebi kakiage tempura and is something that you should get to complement your meal while the fried chicken is a rendition of har cheong gai but this time round, the restaurant uses salted mackerel instead of prawn paste in the marinate.

Shall we have a hearty bowl of Pao Fan? @ebibarsg now offer a new “Chao Da” (Charred) Ebi Pao Fan after their popular Chao Da Ebi Noodles.

Rich flavourful rice broth with signature charred prawns, pan-seared chicken, fried dried shrimps, add-on the homemade fried puffed rice for an umami kick.

To further enliven the soup, there are three boosters to choose from Get-Truffled-Up, Hey-Hot-Stuff (Mala) and You-Make-Miso-Happy (which is our favourite!)

Hidden gem nestled in Cuppage plaza that serves fusion prawn noodle with an affordable pricing. The broth is rich and flavourful, and you can opt for a truffle boost to further enhance the flavour!
I have ordered the chilled tofu as a side which is surprisingly tasty and refreshing.
Definitely worth a try and value for money! 🤩

The star of the meal was definitely the grilled prawns which had a nice smoky charred flavour. Super satisfying to get your hands dirty and peel the prawn out of its shell. You could tell it’s fresh and also has a slight sweet taste to it. The broth was also flavourful and was no doubt the result of boiling the prawn shells for hours.

The noodles were quite forgettable. I recommend eating it from the spoon so you could get more flavour by including the soup. Slurping it has a much lower ROI in terms of flavour. The chicken meat was kind of meh and quite tasteless.

In terms of appetiser, the cold tofu was fantastic with the fried shallots that I can’t get enough of.

Chanced upon the new Ebi Bar — an establishment which focuses on serving up prawn noodles that had recently opened its doors at the basement of Cuppage Plaza. With its main central focus revolving around their rendition of prawn noodles, they also serve up a small variety of sides and light bites to go along as items to share at the table, or as bar snacks with the alcoholic beverages that they have to offer.

The Soul-Good Luxe Noodles is the most expensive item on the menu here at $39.90 — featuring all the goodies in one bowl such as charred, lobster, prawn, scallops and lightly pan-seared chicken with a “thick flavourful broth” — we also opted for the Miso Booster and also went for the set where we ended up with the Edamame and a canned soft drink for an additional $3.90. Really enjoyed the noodles that all their prawn noodles came with — reminds us of the broader Japanese Ramen noodles that comes with a firm, “al-dente” bite; the prawn broth carrying a lighter body overall but comes with a distinct umami note which was actually more on the refreshing side with a slight hint of smokiness from the charred seafood and meats that come together with the bowl, though those into more heavier, “creamier” broths may find it just a bit short of a punch from the crustaceans. That could be easily fixed by opting for one of the three broth boosters (choose between Truffle, Mala or Miso) — basically a secondary broth base served in a vial that could be added to the original broth for a flavour contrast — our choice of the Miso providing the broth with a richer and earthier note that brings the bowl of noodles closer to Japanese Ramen. While most other similar establishments may choose to serve Japanese Chashu for a more Japanese-inspired approach, they have opted for pan-seared chicken that interestingly comes in a roll — pretty bouncy without being as meaty as pork which may otherwise interfere with the lighter umami notes of the broth here. The accompanying seafood are also pretty fresh and pretty huge; naturally sweet and does come off from the shells pretty easily.

While the Soul-Good Luxe Noodles does come a bit pricey given how it comes with all the goodies, the true value-for-money dishes would probably be the Signature “Chao-Da” Charred Ebi Noodles and the Ebi-Vege Crispy Fritter Noodles which are priced at $14.90 and $12.90; a slight premium from the standard coffeeshop offering, but worth paying extra for the slight upgrade as well. The folks here are still getting the kinks sorted out so do expect some teething issues (i.e. our order of side was actually the Chilled Tofu with Homemade Sauce, though we let it slide since the partner wanted Edamame anyways; they had also missed out our additional of ramen egg which we did inform them of subsequently). An option worth considering dining at for something simple whilst around the lesser trekked areas of Somerset.
