Eating Joo Chiat Prawn Mee certainly brings back plenty of heartwarming childhood memories. As I mentioned in an earlier post, my grandmother used to live in Joo Chiat and I was treated to delicious Joo Chiat Prawn Mee when I visited her every Saturday.
Twenty over years have passed and I still craved for those tasty noodles. But one thing I can be sure of, when I tasted Joo Chiat Prawn Mee today, it is still as mouthwatering as ever.
The magic lies in the dark brown soup that is concentrated and brimming with rich crustacean sweetness. It is indeed the best prawn soup I have ever tasted. In addition, Joo Chiat Prawn Mee uses rice vermicelli instead of rice noodles and it absorbs the fragrance of the soup so well, each mouthful is simply irresistable. The prawns are moderately in size and extremely fresh. The pork ribs are tender and savory.
So to all food enthusiasts out there, if you haven't tried Joo Chiat Prawn Mee, you don't know what you are missing. Come down to Carpmael Road and experience it for yourself today.
