Hawker Review: Lai Hiang Pork Rib Prawn Mee

It was a rainy Monday morning when I arrived early at Pek Kio Market and Food Centre for my lunch, having to run some errands nearby. Unfortunately, as it was Monday, most of the stall were closed. I look around to see what was available to eat and realised that about half the stalls were actually closed. Nevertheless, I discovered a long queue of people waiting for prawn noodles at Lai Hiang at Lai Hiang Pork Rib Prawn Mee and decided to do what most Singaporeans would do – join the queue! This article is brought to you by the Tropika Club team.

With 20 Persons Queuing for Prawn Mee

Now, the queue was not a short one. The queue was a consistent one, and even after queuing and getting my meal, I did a queue-count and noted that at its longest, there were twenty people queuing for their prawn noodles! There must be something in the prawn noodles to warrant so many people willing to queue for their lunch. I was glad that I ordered a $5 prawn mee (dry, with white flat noodles and yellow round noodles mixed, and with chilli added, of course).

I was wondering why Lai Hiang did not make it to the Tropika Club list of ranking for Best Prawn Noodles in Singapore. The chilli sauce used by Lai Hiang for the noodles was so delicious that I actually would probably be able to eat another portion of the $5 noodles that I ordered. It was definitely spicy, but yet tasty as well, and it goes to show that the sauce used for mixing the noodles is a key determinant in how tasty a bowl of (dry) noodles score. A small bowl of prawn soup or broth was given as a default, and the soup tasted great, with enough umami and prawn taste to the point that it was sweet but yet not too sweet. 

  • Prawns: The prawns were deshelled and were not halved. Each prawn was tender and juicy and complemented the noodles well.
  • Broth: The prawn broth had a strong flavour of prawns and was also sweet and slightly herbal. 
  • Noodles: The noodles were very tasty and delicious, thanks to the chilli sauce added to the noodles. 

All in all, I would highly recommended paying a visit to Lai Hiang Prawn Noodles if you are a fan of good food. Especially on a Monday when most of the other well-rated stall are all closed.
