Prawn Noodles in Singapore - Rich Broth, Succulent Prawns!

Prawn Noodles is definitely one of the hot favourites among Singaporeans. The original Prawn Noodles Soup is a local dish made up of Hokkien Mee (thick yellow noodles) in a rich broth of pork bones and prawn stock. The prawn stock is made from prawn heads and shells. It was brought to Singapore in the 1880s by immigrants from Fujian province in China.

Over time, the Prawn Noodles in Singapore has evolved into mainly three types - The Atas, The Original and The Innovative. I feel that a good bowl of Prawn Noodles is characterised by its deep flavours of the prawn broth and sweet tasting fresh prawns. What do you think?

Le Shrimp Ramen - The Atas 


Le Signature Trio S$19.90

Fusion food has been trending for the past few years. Recently, I went to Le Shrimp Ramen by the Paradise Group, which celebrates the marriage of Japanese and Chinese flavours in a bowl of piping hot prawn broth with ramen instead of the usual Hokkien yellow noodles. I tried the signature bowl - Le Signature Trio Shrimp Noodle with fresh big prawns, handmade ebiko prawn paste and prawn dumplings. The prawn broth was made of fresh sea prawns, pork bones and Chinese spices, giving the broth a delightful tangerine-orange hue. I hope that Le Shrimp can offer other types of noodles for a different texture or experience. Overall, it was enjoyable and the broth reminded me of a very robust lobster soup.

Blanco Court Prawn Mee - The Original 

Blanco Court Prawn Mee

Blanco Court Prawn Mee is my favourite Big Prawn Noodles soup. The quality is always consistent. The broth felt like it had been boiled for hours with prawn heads. The jumbo prawns were very fresh and sweet. Do you know that Blanco Court Prawn Mee and the hugely popular Beach Road Prawn Noodle House are run by the same Lee family? According to ieatishootipost, Blanco Court Prawn Mee was set up by Mr Lee Pi Duan opposite the current location in 1936. In 1986, the younger generation of the Lee family, set up the famous Beach Road Prawn Noodle House along East Coast Road, introduced the idea of jumbo prawns and setting up a Wu Xiang stall. Thinking about the combination of  the crackers from the Wu Xiang stall and Big Prawn Noodles is making me salivate right now!

Prawnaholic - The Innovative

Prawnaholic

It is indeed admirable that more and more youngsters are joining the hawker centre scene. Prawnaholic founded by chef-owner Mr Alan Choong, is located in Fareground, a very modern looking hawker centre in Pasir Ris. I tried the famous Prawnaholic Prawn Noodles Dry version after hearing many rave reviews with my sister. Subsequently, we introduced it to our aunt and she also loved it and introduced to her family and friends too. Foodies!

A bowl of Special Prawn Noodles Dry comprises 2 fresh prawns, torched Kurobuta Pork, homemade prawn ball and a choice of adding an onsen egg. The sauce itself resembles a good bowl of dry prawn noodles with plenty of flavours from the pork lard and chilli. Delicious!

Do support Prawnaholic if you are in the East so that we can continue to keep the Singapore Hawker Culture alive!
