       River South ( Hoe Nam ) Prawn Noodles - Eating Places

    Had this meal after a gruelling day at The Canon Photomarathon 2008.

    Went there with a bunch of friends for dinner. Located just behind the soon-to-tear-down Jackson Center, I had to try their prawn noodles, after some recommendation from a friend.

    So I duly obliged and decided to order a bowl of pork ribs small prawn noodle (direct translation). This will be a detailed description on my order.

    The bowl of prawn noodle given to me consist 2 pieces of pork ribs, a big handful of noodles, several small sliced prawns and shallots (is it spelt that way? LOL.)

    NOW, to let you know how it taste like - the soup is heavenly. Just enough pepper to make it spicy, it blends well even better with the pork rib. Amazingly, the pork rib is actually sweet when you taste it. And it is smooth as well (as in one bite and it detaches itself from the bone.). Then the prawns are alright, but the soup was the best deal. Unless you order the big prawns, the small prawns are just normal I guess.

    I didn’t try their chilli powder, which was sickeningly spicy after seeing my friend perspire like a fountain after putting like 2 to 3 scoops into his bowl of noodles and soup respectively (that’s because he had dry noodles.)

    Apart from the seemingly rude expression and way of serving, the meal made up my day. But do remember to drink more water after that because normally, prawn noodles soup are generally heaty, so do drink more water after that.

    Overall, apart from that coffee shop ambience, all is fine. Do try it because what I ordered isn’t the only variety that they are selling. Go for it!

      This prawn noodle stall sell one of the best prawn mee in Singapore. It is located near to the formal jackson centre.

      It is a coffeshop that sell ONLY PRAWN MEE. And it is a must to try. The soap is cooked with prawn and when the prawn is de-shelled, they actually fried the prawn shell and throw it back into the soap to make the stock. ( This is what I heard of) So the soup was richly yummy. Add a little bit of the chilli powder and you have a power-packed soup.

      The stall also has a lot of variety to its mee. got pig intenstine, abalone clams, pig tail (my fav ^^), pork ribs. The meat is sealed with the flavour from the soup and yet, it is not tough. I think all ah ma can also easily eat them. It tears away from the bone easily. The intenstine doesn't have that '****' taste in them, if you tried the ones in Korat, you know what I meant.

      The stall operates in the morning by the younger brother, which is from 6.30am to somewhere 3-5 pm, then the older brother will take over. And you can even eat it at 2am in the morning. ^^

      However, there are some draw backs which prevented me from giving it 5 stars. first is the price. Normal is $3.50, but it doesn't give you any kick. for a deserving bowl of prawn noodle, the price starts at $5.00. The dry version is too oily for me, but it taste good cos they use pork oil and a lot of fried onions. I prefer the soup version as the soup is what makes the noodle ticks. so head down and try it out. ^^

        For s stall to occupy the whole coffee shop, that means business must be good. When we walked in, we were impressed by the numerous food awards ranging from Yummy King, Makansutra to Sundry Times, Her World, etc.

        We were browsing through the menu and realized that they catered a mix and match of items though they specialized in big prawn and pork ribs noodles.

        We ordered the abalone clams with prawns, pork ribs and big prawns with intestine noodles soup.

        We have our first sip of the piping hot soup. The broth was richly sweet and tasty. The abalone clams were tender. The big prawns were springy and fresh. The slices of pig intestine were chewy but easy to swallow. The texture from the pork ribs was just right that when you bite, it will automatically detached itself from the bone.

        When we left the place, we agreed that this was one of the better prawn noodles that we have tried. Overall, it tasted good but the only setback was the inconsistency of the opening hours. So if you have any sudden craving, then be mentally prepared if the stall is not open on that particular day.
