Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles @Pek Kio Hawker Centre

Located at Pek Kio Hawker Centre (or Blk 41A Cambridge Road), this stall seemed quite popular. Can see lots of awards displayed (awarded in Year 2003 and 2007) and a poster from "Our Makan Places, Lost and Found."

Today there was a short queue and we waited for about 10-15 minutes to reach the front (there were about 4-5 customers infront). Once we're at the front, we waited for about 5 more minutes before the aunty spoke to us.

To order, you need to wait for the aunty to speak first. Otherwise, she can't/won't remember what you are saying also.

I've seen the $3 noodles and frankly speaking, you can skip that one. Today we had the $5 noodles. I liked mine soupy.

The ingredients were pretty simple. Big prawns, kangkong, big heap of fried lard, oil, minced garlic and noodles. The broth tasted somewhat like a mix of Penang style and local prawn noodles soup. Tasty. The chili powder seemed like a pricey commodity because the aunty would keep it inside her stall and my friend had to ask from her three times before the aunty entertained her request....

The 3 prawns were big! And in my opinion, befits the $5 price tag. The prawns' flesh falls off easily, succulent and firm. And most importantly, not overcooked.
