When I visited Dunman Food Centre last weekend, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the famous Eng's Wanton Mee which had disappeared recently, had not closed down after all. Instead it was relocated to the basement of Dunman Food Centre. Although I was very tempted to try its super spicy wanton mee again, I reminded myself that I was there to try Heng Heng prawn mee soup.
I ordered a bowl of pork rib prawn noodle which costs only $3. Topped with several pieces of pork ribs and sliced prawns, this prawn noodle is certainly value for money. When I tasted the soup, I was immediately reminded of Joo Chiat prawn mee. Considering the close proximity of the two prawn noodle stalls, I really doubt if the similarity is merely coincidental. The mouthwatering soup, which is concentrated with the delightful sweetness of prawns and the subtle fragrance of fried onion and pork lard, really brings out the "old school" flavour that is missing in most prawn mee nowadays.
Regardless of whether it is related to Joo Chiat prawn mee or not, Heng Heng prawn mee soup is certainly worthwhile trying. If you are a prawn noodle lover like me, do not miss this delicious prawn mee with a traditional flavour.
