This was one prawn noodle in Singapore which I used to love so much when I was working in Novena many years ago. It was located in a coffee shop opposite Novena Square at that time and after it moved to its new premises at Novena Ville, there were rumours that its standards have dropped. Plus there is another stall at Old Airport Road with the same name, it makes us wonder which is the original one. However, when I tasted Whitley Road Big Prawn Mee again yesterday, I felt that it is still as good as before.
The concentrated soup, brimming with the irresistable flavour of prawns and pork ribs, complements the delicious noodles. The medium half-prawns are fresh and sweet while the pork ribs are tasty and tender.
For prawn mee enthusiasts who are impatient, the service is prompt with minimal waiting time. Indeed one of the best in Singapore, Whitley Road Big Prawn Mee is definitely worth trying.
