More Reviews of good food at Fresh Taste Big Prawn Noodle Dry/Soup (Zion Riverside Food Centre)

Zion Road prawn mee is my favourite! Prices have gone up over the years and they’re now 8/12/16/20/25, but when you see the size of the prawns you understand why. The prawns are huge, and are of monstrous proportions if you pay $25. There’s also a good portion of tender pork ribs, and the soup is wonderfully rich with both a prawn and a porky fragrance.

Ordered the 𝐃𝐫𝐲 𝐏𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐧 𝐍𝐨𝐨𝐝𝐥𝐞 for $8. It was quite pricey for a hawker food, but trust me, it’s really worth the price and the queueing time (it took me ~30 mins).

The broth was incredibly rich, tasty and comforting with a tinge of sweetness. As it’s my first experience eating prawn noodle, I was also surprised to find fall-off-the-bone pork ribs in my soup below the two fresh giant prawns. It was really delicious, and I didn’t hesitate to drink more of the rich yet light broth.

The noodle was the thick yellow vermicelli type that was cooked al dente. Initially thought that the noodle would be bland, but it was addictively yummy and served with fragrant fried shallots. The soup and the noodle really made a souper match! 👍🏼

It’s amazing that the stall was run by just one uncle, who, despite having to prepare for the seemingly unending orders, still greeted each of the customers amicably. His friendliness made me forget the tiredness from standing in the queue for so long ☺️

Would recommend you to try this prawn noodle if you haven’t already!

After having my $8 worth of prawn noodle, my friend challenged to have the $16 one as he mentioned is a lot and he will pay half of it. I accepted the challenge.

When I told the stall owner that I want to have the $16 one having here. He was shocked that I was still able to eat. I also learned that they use wild caught tiger prawn hence the size and freshness of the prawn.

Let's go for the good points first: the broth is very flavorful and among so many prawn mees I've eaten (too many to count) it has the best balance of seasoning, umami from the prawn shells, and sweetness from the pork. Excellent base which is a big plus (and one of the most impt thing in prawn mee)

However, there were other problems: the broth was too peppery, prawns were not the best in quality and pork was cooked too long - instead of a succulent meat you get tender but slightly dry flesh.

Overall would eat if im in the area despite its shortcomings because the broth balance is good

My friend brought me here for dinner.

For $8, it is consist of the noodle & the soup with all the ingredients.

The noodle is not bad but the soup is nothing much to shout about. The prawn is big and fresh but the broth is just normal.

Overall, I wouldn't come specially for this but when I'm around the vicinity.

Highlight here was definitely the soup, it was ‘prawny’ and umami with a distinct amount of pepper. Prawns were pretty fresh and ribs were tender. We had the dry noodles and while the heat was there, it was a little too oily. Would probably go with the soup version instead next time!

$8.00 was the cost for this savoury noodles.
Brisk queue, default seasoning was already quite awesome, add a little chilli for the kicks.

The same amazing flavours, fresh prawns and alkaline (Kee) yellow noodle. Prices have moved up though and the handsome/friendly chef is not around...

Added their house recipe chilli powder and lots of fried shallot & lard (Bak Yew Pok)!!!

A generous bowl of al dente yellow (egg/ghee/flour) noodle tossed in fried shallots, bah-you-pok (fried lard) and springy pork skin is served separate from the "tonkutsu" soup with large fresh shrimps and thick-cut poached pork belly. Who needs a $15 ramen...bhawwahhhahaa

$12

This is definitely a treat for spicy lovers as the sambal has a distinct taste which compliments the noodles and of course the heavenly prawn soup!

The soup takes the center stage as it is really appetizing and the sweetness from the prawn really shine through for this bowl .. prawns are sliced into half and easier for deshelling with your chopsticks and teeth! The noodles are delicious too as they are thoroughly seasoned with their house sauce which is sweet/savoury too.. For chilli eaters, order the spicy version as it's gonna give the noodles more 'ompfh'. This is definitely a lovely bowl of noodles that I will make a point to visit from time to time.
