Crab Steamboat ($55)
.
After facing rejection countless times due to the need to brave the heat eating at a hawker centre, I finally managed to grab a companion to join me at Wen Wen Pork Rib Prawn Noodle to try their Crab Steamboat on a rainy evening. According to the stall, it is best that this steamboat be had after 6pm as that’s when the stock has developed enough flavour after simmering for the entire day. He was right! Most prawn mee stock I’ve had is usually murky from all the pork being cooked. Instead, Wen Wen’s was a clear broth that packed mainly the sweet umami goodness of all the seafood. So for the price, we get pork ribs, pig’s tail, pig intestines, big prawns, clams, and the crab full of roe. With so much seafood simmering over a slow fire during the meal, the prize really is the taste of the soup towards the end of our meal. Do note that you are also allowed to bring your own ingredients to add to the steamboat and I would strongly recommend bring more vegetables as it’ll cost $5/bowl from the stall.

Wen Wen Big Prawn Mee is now back at the newly renovated Geylang Bahru Market & Food Centre! All I can is that soup is just as shiok, uncle Richard is just as friendly and the experience just as fun as before (sadly, no more lala). He even has his own add-ons now like veg and fresh pork shabu shabu so you don’t have to bring your own (though you still can).

Back to Wen Wen (in Geylang Bahru) ‧⁺◟( ᵒ̴̶̷̥́ ·̫ ᵒ̴̶̷̣̥̀ )

Love the seafood flavors and the super generous ingredients; it came loaded with crab, prawns, pork ribs, intestines (also you can order their prawn noodles FOC), and you can always bring your own ingredients to add! Also uncle is seriously the nicest hawker ever. Only downside is the hawker setting, but this is really worth the sweat.

A favourite on Burpple's Hawker Hot 100 list last year, this Old Airport Road Food Centre prawn noodle stall serves up one shiok hotpot. Boosted with the sweetness of prawns and robustness from the pork ribs, the base broth is without a doubt one of the winning points here. The heavenly broth is filled generously with seafood (prawn, clams and a whole crab) and fall-off-the-bone pork ribs. What we also appreciate is that we get to bring our own ingredients to further fill the pot — think mushrooms, fishballs and all the vegetables you fancy! The Prawn Broth Hot Pot (from $55 for two people) is not listed on their menu, so call ahead to let friendly owner Richard know to prepare it in advance for your party.

Had this due to some recommendations we read. I like that the soup is piping hot from start to end, and that the soup has a distinct seafood taste- the sweetness of it!
We did not bring tofu or vege to add in though we've heard we could.
The soup was added FOC. Promptly when level goes low.
The bowls of noodles goes well with the hotpot.
Recommend anyone who likes hotpot to bring along your own vege, canned mushrooms and tofu. Regretted not brining as these would go very well with the sweet fragrant soup.
Very friendly Uncle and auntie. Bless them!
$60 for 4 pax this time.

The broth was super tasty thanks to the generous ingredients the uncle gave us: lala clams, crab, prawns, pork ribs, and pig intestines (it originally comes with pigs' tails and skin too, but we decided to opt out of them). The hotpot also comes with unlimited bowls of noodle with super shiok chilli and pieces of lard.

Nothing beats great company and good food - especially indulging in comforting eat-till-you-burst hotpots, the ultimate communal activity imho!

A brillant brillant idea, Wen Wen Big Prawn Mee manage to combine two local favourites that is prawn noodles and steamboat into a shiok-tastic upsized, upgraded version. Starting at $50 for 2 pax, the heavenly broth is filled with tons of seafood (prawn, clams and a WHOLE crab), fall-off-the-bone pork ribs, pig tails and intestines but of course you can request to have them replaced with more of your preferred item (not the crab ah). And the best part is that you can BRING YOUR OWN INGREDIENTS, a total customizable hotpot! Imagine shabu shabu meats, more seafood and all your favourite vegetables so we bought loads of enoki mushrooms as well as cabbage to soak up all that goodness. On top of that, there is unlimited serving of carbs (noodles/rice)~ YAS!

The flavourful stock which is the highlight of the entire experience is worth an entire paragraph dedicated to explain its yumminess. Enriched from all the ingredients, the robust broth is just spot on as you get the natural sweetness of the prawns with a boost from the ribs. Harmonized perfectly, it just gets better as it continues to boil and it is said to be enhanced with Pu-er tea. None of that MSG-induced thirst, the sweet, savoury soup also had a great depth of flavours. And a tip, if you still have space, is to finish things off with a refreshing cup of chilled barley two stalls down at Li Rong Coffee Stall.

You really can’t ask for more, so guuud (but please ask for more soup)! Do call ahead to reserve and prep your items beforehand. Psst there is a Fairprice nearby.

Back at Wen Wen for the second time after what seems like forever but the wait was so worth it. ✨We paid $70 for 5 pax. Unlimited noodles and refills of that amazing broth in a mix of crabs, clams, prawns, intestines and pork ribs along with shabu pork and veg we brought along. S H I O K. Their contact number for reservations has changed to 90265983 and I think they now provide additional vegetables for top up if you forget to bring your own!

Second time here but still amazed like the first time by the DAMN SHIOK broth, sweetened by all the goodness - you've got prawns, crab, clams, pork ribs/ intestines etc., minimal msg and enhanced by Pu Er Tea. Wasn't thirsty despite inhaling bowls of it.

This is the ultimate hidden gem of the year. On their sign board, all you saw was their prawn Mee but everyone near the stall was eating steamboat. .
|
Hidden dish in their menu -Steamboat for 2 or more. One crab Two prawns, pig tails, ribs and endless count of clams. My guess was that the owner used sugar crane to bulk up the taste. Because of the fresh ingredients he used, just a little pinch of salt was all the soup need. .

All recommend to bring your own ingredients over to shabu shabu. Nowadays such generous owner is really hard to find.

Such a unique offering in a hawker center! And so bustling on a Wednesday evening too. Imagine the best prawny crabby prawn mee broth, rich but not too rich that you can inhale a whole pot of it. And loaded with goodies! Prawns, the freshest crab, small intestine, pork rib, tail, and unlimited soup. Add abalone if you wish! It's no wonder so many customers bring their own toppings (mushrooms, tofu, veg, etc) and most tables there was prepared! Not only that the set came with unlimited portions of dry noodles coated in a light (but lethal) chili. Perfect companion to the addictive soup! Head down on that chilly night and prepare to wait for this unique offering at old airport road hawker center. Remember to bring some add ons too!

I'm quite disappointed with what was served when I went to eat last Saturday. The first time I went was when it was still at the old location where it's so much less crowded. After bloggers recommended this place after it shifted to old airport, the business shot up and the standard went down.

We waited for 1 hour 30 min to be served because good food deserves the wait but what was served was so lacking. There suppose to be pork rib, clams, crab, prawn, pig intestine, pig tail in the soup. But despite paying the same amount of $50 for 2 pax, the pot does not have pig intestine and pig tail at all. There were only 3 pork ribs, 5 clams and they probably substituted the missing ones with thinly sliced lean meat (which is not suppose to be in the pot). With the lack of certain ingredients and quantity of ingredient, the taste of the soup was not like before. The crab that was supposed to have the soft kind of roe (claimed by them that it is the best kind of crab and is only what they serve) became the hard orangey roe. The noodle was very dry and tasteless unlike what we tasted previously.

This is definitely not what I expect out of $50 + 1.5 hours of wait. Ended up filling our tummies with the extra vege that we brought along to add. Hope they are going to keep up with their standards and the words despite the sudden overwhelming popularity.

But the recent hype over this steamboat style prawn mee soup was justifiable. The soup immediately smelled of crab when served. It was rich and sweet of crab, lala and prawn. There were plentiful pork ribs, intestines and tails too.
For $70 a pot, you could ask for free refill of soup and noodles too. Do mix the soup with their chilli b'cos it tasted so good being steaming hot and slightly spicy too. Overall a good eat, although I only wished their prawns were bigger especially for the slightly bigger price tag. And yes, you could bring your own food to top up to the pot. #burpple

There are few hot pot experiences as unique as this — you can bring your own ingredients to add on, and it comes from a prawn noodle stall! Originally from Geylang Bahru Hawker Centre that is currently undergoing renovation, Wen Wen sells prawn noodles with pork ribs, and doesn't list hot pot on its signboard. First thing you need to do is call ahead and ask for the friendly owner Richard to let him know how many people are coming for hot pot. We highly recommend asking for the Prawn and Seafood Hot Pot ($50 for two pax, $60 for four and $80 for six), where fresh prawns, clams, pig intestines, pig tails, pork ribs and fresh crabs bubble away in a sweet prawn broth enhanced by Pu-er tea. Secondly, be sure to bring along your favourite veggies and meats to cook — our must-haves include mushrooms, cabbage, radish, cheese tofu and shabu-shabu meats. If you'd like to indulge, ask for fancier pots that include abalone (up to $100 per pot). Grab a seat and enjoy this truly memorable meal complete with refillable soup and a choice of rice, bee hoon, or yellow noodles to go with it!

One of the newest addition is Wen Wen Big Prawn Mee and they sell no ordinary prawn mee. Request for it and you get to indulge in a decedent steamboat filled with crabs, prawns, pork ribs, intestines... and the best part is being able to buy your OWN INGREDIENTS to add into the soup! So of course we added in crabs sticks, mushrooms, vegetables, cheese tofu and even beef slices for shabu shabu.
🔅
If you want, they also serve abalone and that will set you to around $100 plus. But it all depends on number of pax and amount of ingredients is added... so, either go for it or bring your own liao to add in lah.
🔅
Reservations is highly recommended if you want to go for the steamboat. ☻☻☻☻☻☻☻☻☻☻
