If, like Burpple Tastemaker Peter Wong, you're wondering if this Muslim-owned prawn noodle stall at Toa Payoh West Market and Food Centre can turn out a flavour-packed stock sans pork bones, the answer is a resounding yes. If Peter's guess is right, the stock gets its depth and complexity from a large amount of prawn shells, garlic and shallots. The result? A broth that's fresh and sweet, and the perfect base for the soupy Prawn Noodles ($3.50). If you're a fan of crustaceans, consider getting the Prawn Noodles with Clams ($6.50). Hardworking Burppler Doreen Tan counted 18 juicy clams in total — how generous! Pro tip: Note that they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Avg Price: $5 per person
