Just as there are two famous curry mee in Hong Lim Food Centre, there are two famous prawn noodles, both located on the second storey. The first, Ah Hui Big Prawn Noodles, failed to leave a lasting impression, so I went to try the second, The Old Stall Famous Hokkien Prawn Mee today.
I ordered the $5 bowl of prawn noodles with pork ribs. The first thing that catches my attention is the light-coloured soup which seems devoid of dark soya sauce. Even so, the unique soup is very flavorful with the sweet essence of fresh prawns and pork ribs. The delicious noodles are well-complemented by the tasty halved prawns and tender pork ribs.
This is one prawn mee that is not to be missed if you are having lunch at Hong Lim Food Centre. It may not be the best but it is certainly worth a try.
