Joo Chiat Hokkian Prawn Mee

No other food can bring me more reminiscence of my childhood than a bowl of traditional prawn mee soup from Joo Chiat. Back in those days, a small bowl of prawn mee was to be shared between several people eg myself and my cousins, certainly delicious but not at all satisfying. Thus today I can't help but feel very privileged to be living in Singapore, an affluent society and a food paradise.

Recently relocated to a new coffee shop further down the road, Joo Chiat Hokkian Prawn Mee finally has a prominent signboard featuring its name. Previously I have only known it as the prawn mee soup inside the old coffee shop with Fei Fei Wanton Mee.

I ordered a $3 bowl of prawn mee soup which comes with sliced prawns, lean meat and pork rib. What is most outstanding about this prawn mee is its mouthwatering soup which is concentrated with the irresistable essence of prawn and pork rib. The remarkable flavour is accentuated by the fragrance of fried onion shallots, making this prawn mee soup one of the best I have tasted in Singapore.

If you are craving for the old school type of prawn noodle with no fanciful ingredients eg big prawns, Joo Chiat Hokkian prawn mee is just the right one for you.

Uncle Sim Curry Chicken Noodle

Previously blogged about his delicious economic rice in Whampoa Food Centre, I was delighted to find out that Uncle Sim has opened a new curry chicken noodle stall there.

Feeling really hungry that evening, I ordered the larger $4 bowl instead of the usual $3. Absolutely value for money, the curry chicken noodle came with a huge chicken drumstick, several pieces of chicken, egg, potato and you tiao (fried Chinese doughstick). The mouthwatering curry gravy is thick and savory with an authentic homemade flavour. The fresh chicken is undoubtedly fleshy and tasty.

One of the more outstanding curry chicken noodle in Singapore, Uncle Sim will certainly give fellow competitors like Hock Hai a run for their money.
