The prawn mee is just average. What we ordered and what we served was different so it is disappointing. The prawn mee ($6) has just 2 prawns. They just cut it into half so it's so little. The broth is nothing amazing. There are better...one out there. not very worth for money. It's really hard to get parking there if you are driving.More

Repeated visit to the Prawn noodle House after more than 6mths. Visited just before phase w kicked in but was rather disappointed. Foodfare was maintained but the kitchen helpers/cooks obviously either had a bad day when we visited or had changed crew. Got our orders...wrong 2 times in a row and when we feedback requesting politely for a change the kitchen staff came out twice wanting to argue its we ordered wrongly in an extremely rude manners. Luckily we had the receipts to prove but had already spoilt all momentum to dine in. Hope boss do something to kitchen staff attitude as we noticed we weren't the only table orders were wrongly served. A bowl of Prawn noodle cost more than $10 here at a hot coffeeshop so at least the foodfare plus orders should be rightfully served els done will rather top up few bucks more can go restaurant eat then.More

Nice broth of prawn noodles. Don’t have to choose more than $6, one can have a nice bowl. Unless ones needs bigger prawns or ribs. Barley water or lime juice is also nice. The ngoi hiang and Yan Chiang is also good on the next...stand. Price is mid range. No air conditioning. Pay first and get your order.More

I am a prawn mee lover and this was my first and last time here. I ordered the jumbo prawns with pork ribs for $10.90. You get 1.5 prawns sliced into halves. The pork ribs were hard and almost tasteless as if they were simply...boiled. Broth was at best just average. Not sure about all the great reviews. But well, taste is very subjective.More

Reputable 90 years and 4 generations of Prawn Mee history, and almost un Singaporean if you haven't heard of or tasted this Prawn Mee located on the East side of Singapore despite their name Beach Road. Mostly famed for their soup version Prawn noodle, as...a fan of Chilli, Crispy Lard and Aromatic Shallots, I will still always prefer the dry version. Always hard to find a parking spot, you will see frequent Super cars flouting the no parking and take a quick risk though their queueing system, the preparation and meal time, usual a visit here will take up to 40 minutes at the least. Menu now starts from $6, $9 and $12. After the 30 mins queue, go big or go home. $12 gets you 2 Jumbo prawns in halves or a mix of 1 Jumbo prawn and 5 pieces of pork ribs. Their noodles, al dente, Chilli is a little sweet and less savoury, loads of fried shallots and bits of lard to coat the savoury noodles. Next the ribs, unlike many famed Prawn mee stalls, usually come dry and bland, here they're not exactly fall of the bones soft but well marinated and tasty. The Jumbo prawns are cooked to the right texture, and you can taste the pure praw. freshness, meaning they were not marinated ahead and thoughts went into the prawns as like it or not Prawns are bottom feeders and scavengers hence there are usually unsightly black veins. Here every prawn prawns are cleaned properly including the head parts which is quite rarely done. The star of the show, is the soup. Nice prawn umami, with a hint of garlic and shallots. Not too sweet, not too overpowering. Perfect Prawn Mee broth in my books. Since we queue for up to 30mins, might as well go the whole nine yards and have some ngo hiang, crispy Prawn crackers, century eggs to go with. All in all a $20 dollar hearty lunch. And whenever I have an hour, I will come back. Constant reminder to order the Soup version, and lated kick myself when I ended up with Dry againMore

This place never fails to satisfy my prawn mee cravings. I really enjoy the wuxiang here as well. Great prawns and pork ribs, with very flavorful broth!

You can expect a crowd every morning during weekend for breakfast. The shop has great consistency for their broth and noodles. My favorite is the dry noodles with chili. If you are a big eater, don't miss out on the wu xiang. it's pretty good...too. One small thing to note. Parking can be troublesome as lots are limited.More

I would say this is one of my favorite prawn noodle. I will not have the pork ribs cause it is a little too hard. Weekend morning the prawns is fresher, today (Thursday) my first time having it for weekday lunch, the soup taste nicer...but the prawn is not so fresh. If you dare to eat pig's tail. You should try it. It is soft and nicely cleaned.More
