I went out with my mom's friend for lunch again and she brought us to this well-known prawn mee store at the junction of Still Road and East Coast Road. They used to have only one shopfront until business was so good that they took down the adjorning space too!
Prawn Mee with Pig Tail ($5.50)
I'm not an expert on prawn mee, but the soup here was a clear winner! Light brown in colour with floating red pigments, the rich flavour of prawn bursts in your mouth and left a slight sweet aftertaste. Who knows how many prawns were sacrificed in the making of the soup!
The topped self-made scallions were crispy and delicious to chew, while the prawn was fresh with its shell coming off easily. The pig tail was also cooked to tenderness with a melt-in-your-mouth skin.
Pity there's only one prawn in each bowl of mixed noodles. But I think the soup is enough to make one coming back for more. Maybe should try the jumbo prawn mee someday!
