"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Prawn Mee (Penang Style)

Come across this Penang style prawn mee soup by chance. My family and I wanted to eat the wanton noodles there, but we discovered that this stall looks much better. The wanton mee is not nice.

I ordered the kway tiao soup, but the kway tiao is not the “skinny” kind. That kinda spoil the taste, and makes the soup bland. Prawn mee still tastes best with the yellow mee and thin bee hoon. What attracts me to this stall is their soup base. You can taste the prawn in the soup. Probably the boss has cooked the soup base for a long time with prawn shells. It’s among the best Penang style prawn mee in Singapore.

The chilli paste is not fantastic, neither was the chilli powder. The boss is from Penang and cooks rather slowly. So you’ve gotta wait a little.

Each bowl cost $2.50. Picture above is $3.
