Prawn pork ribs noodles dry ($5)

3 pieces of pork ribs and 2 prawns. Prawns were rather fresh. Substantial amount of ingredient with the noodles which is very filling. I liked the chilli though can be saltier (just add abit of light soy sauce and it's perfect).

Will order again!

Thank God for queueing Singaporeans! Following the crowd, I discovered this great prawn noodle stall at Tiong Bahru.
-
Their secret is in that fragrant chili, which was easily coated on their unbelievably springy noodle-beehoon mix, for slurp after slurp of pleasurable umami. Alas, the accompanying bowl of prawn broth was, while still good, lightweight in flavour.

At the corner of the most popular area in Tiong Bahru Market & Food Centre where the queues for the fatty char siew wanton mee and the vegetarian bee hoon stalls are is the prawn mee stall which commands a short queue. The noodles are good with fresh medium sized prawns and tender pork ribs. I love the fact that the mee is well cooked and not sticking together. The chilli sauce is deliciously spicy. It has a good lot of greens and bean sprouts making the dish crunchy. Overall it’s a burping good meal.

When it comes to prawn mee, broth is definitive of quality. This broth was lightweight and sapid, with a distinct pork flavour. What’s lacking, however, is the thick crustacean flavour quintessential of the dish. Ideal if you’re seeking healthier options, but not wholly satisfying.

FYI: If limelight is testament to quality for you, this prawn mee won the first edition of Channel 8’s 《抢摊大行动》(Buzzing Cashier) – after many gruelling rounds of taste tests.

Min Nan is the stall to go to for stellar prawn noodles. According to both Tastemakers Vanessa Kou and Julius Lim, the broth here is on the lighter side and not quite packed with robust, punchy flavours as one might expect, so opt for the Pork Rib Prawn Noodle Dry (from $4.50), which sees the noodles tossed in pork lard and fried shallots — shiok! The noodles have Tastemaker Vanessa's vote of confidence. A mix of rice vermicelli and yellow noodles, they were cooked "just right – firm, not soggy or undercooked". The pork ribs are also spot-on tender and meaty, adding to a very humble but hearty bowl.

Spotting a routinely queue, Min Nan Pork Ribs Prawn Noodles 閩南排骨虾面 serves a pretty satisfying bowl of Pork Rib Prawn Noodle Dry ($4.50/$5.50). However, the soup on the side might be their weakest link. Due to the lack of robustness, the broth was very much of a milder variation that didn’t have the usual oomph and strong umami flavour of crustacean (but hey if a light prawn noodles soup is what you are looking for). The noodles, a mix of rice vermicelli and yellow noodles, on the other hand were cooked just right - firm, not soggy or undercooked. And add that with the fragrance of shallots and pork lard, the humble bowl certainly captured my heart. The pork ribs too, were well-executed - tender and meaty.
