Beach Road Prawn Noodles

It had been too lazy a Sunday. After a late breakfast, we had an even later lunch (close to 3.30pm). We opted to try something closeby. The Beach Road Prawn Noodles at 370 East Coast Road. I was heartened to see that at that hour, there were many tables filled (unlike the neighbouring Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodles).

However, the food turned out to be somewhat lacklustre. My "upgraded" soup (S$5) came with only two prawn halves, and a handful of small pork rib pieces (which had a tinge of that unclean "porky" taste). It was not too bad but halfway through, I felt like I wanted something else.

Hubby's dry version unfortunately came with tomato ketchup at the base (I forgot to tell them we want the chili/spicy version). His was all right but the little bowl of soup that came with it was vile! Tasted like they had added swampy water that had been fermenting with shrimp shells and fish guts.

Even the accompanying ngoh hiang and prawn fritters were a letdown. Tough, dry and not tasty. Both the prawn noodles and fritters were sooo much better at the Blanco Court Prawn Noodles at 243/245 Beach Rd. Interestingly, that was the last place we had prawn noodles, and I was pregnant at that time too.

So, we left somewhat unsatisfied, looking for other food...
