SG PRAWN NOODLES – HAIG ROAD, SINGAPORE

Advertisements


Intro:

I reckon naming the stall is pretty important especially for first timers trying out the food. I’ve been seeing this SG Prawn noodle place for the longest time near my cafe and decided to try this time round. So is it a hit or miss? See my comments below.

Taste:

One sip of the broth sends umami vibes down my throat and its something not attainable by MSG and just prawn shells. Broth is the result of a lot of pork bones and prawn shells boiled over hours and maybe even days to get the taste. Pork ribs were tender too!

Price:

$4.50 for pork ribs and prawn noodles.

Portion:

Average.

Service:

Self-service.

Waiting Time:

Usually no queue.

Rating:

4.5/5.

Location:

#01-56 Haig Road Market & Food Centre

I’m starting to write about hardworking hawkers with good food offerings around my neighbourhood. So those living around Hougang area, you’ll probably wanna bookmark these blog posts. 😝

This handmade pau shop does pretty delicate paus all handmade from scratch daily from 5am and they’ll sell till around 5pm. I can imagine the hardwork making these daily, well it’s something I may not be able to do for years and a job that requires helluva passion. Check out the pics below:

Rating: 4/5

Taste: Love it when they use pretty lean meat in the paus and taste was pretty good and juicy inside. Siew mai was good but they added carrots which I didn’t like. I’m ok with Chinese mushrooms but carrot makes it taste on the sweet side.

Portion: A little smaller than usual but fillings were good portioning.

Service: Pretty good, better than the kopi lady anytime!

Ambience: Coffee shop

Price: Cheaper than most places. Big Pau $1.30, Char Siew Pau $0.70, Siew Mai $0.50.
RTE: Yes
