For those who like large prawns, dark flavourful soup, juicy pork ribs, your choices are invariably those few prawn Mee places like Beach Road, Jalan Sultan....and Blanco Court Prawn Mee. Not bad. I notice their service is slower than the other two aforementioned outlets but unlike those two, there was no queue on a Sunday morning. For that alone, we should consider switching.

Will be back for more.

Accidentally read about this in a review so I have been meaning to try out this stall. But they are off on Sundays which is the day when I normally enjoy Prawn Mee brunch.

Ordered the dry bee hoon mee. At $3.50 a bowl, you get three pieces of pork and three decent sized deshelled prawns. The chilli was not too spicy and goes well with the lard and fried shallots. But the soup! The soup! Really umami with strong flavour of prawns.

Hooked! I must come back soon.

Place was almost empty at 12.15pm. No lunch crowd. Ordered their prawn noodles (Chef Kang’s Prawn Noodles duh) instead of their Hot stone Prawn Paste Spare Ribs rice. Service was fast but then there was no other customer to serve.

Perhaps I was all hyped up by the reviews I read. Perhaps I’m spoilt by the likes of Beach Road Prawn Noodles but I felt disappointed as the star dish of the restaurant was really mediocre. Stock was neither bland nor flavourful. Noodles were blanched about right but there was no Omph!when coupled with the prawn stock. The prawns themselves were not very fresh as evident from the difficulties in peeling the shells. Rather, the star of the dish was the prawn paste spare rib (actually a generously large piece of pork chop). Crisp on the outside juicy band tender meat inside with just a hint of fat. Very flavourful as well from the prawn paste marinate. I almost ordered another piece.

Not happy with the dish overall, since I came for prawn noodles and got a very good pork chop instead. And rather expensive at S$10 a bowl. At one stage I actually suspected Chef Kang is no more associated with this restaurant. Not coming back.
