Da Dong Prawn Noodles

Hokkien Prawn Mee is a hot favourite Singapore hawker food...probably amongst the top 5 most popular, I rekon.

My favourite is Wah Kee in Pek Kio, but a friend suggested that since he has been eating at Da Dong for many years, following the hawker as he moved several locations, I had to try.

The fragrance wafts to one's nostrils as the noodles are being served.

This is the dry version. The noodles were firm...al dente even. Very nice, with a light kee base, but being coated in the sauce/soup had a beautiful aroma of the crustaceans. The soup is probably the star here...savoury, but very fragrant, aromatic. The liquid is more viscous than most watery soups, and packs a punch. The prawns were very fresh.

Overall, for me, this is very good prawn noodle, but the Wah Kee auntie gets to keep her crown for the best.
