Joyce, Josephine and I decided to venture out in a totally new direction for lunch today! We ditched our usual Junction 8 & Novena Square for hawker fare at Adam Road. The lunch crowd there was manageable, we secured a comfy, comparatively cool 4 seater table away from the sun within a short while.
Quite a number of tables around us were happily slurping up their prawn mee & it does look pretty good. It seems that this Noo Cheng Adam Road Big Prawn Mee is quite a hit with the patrons. Ok lor, so many people eat this, cannot go too wrong right.
The queue was relatively short and in order to faciliate fast orders, we were able to choose from one of the 4 ‘Happy Meals’ packages. We opted for smallest portion Pork Ribs Big Prawn Noodles ($5) & Pork Slices Big Prawn Noodles ($4). Suggestion: try mixing 2 different noodles together for a more textured bite & ask the auntie for more broth. 🙂
They have different prawn treatment for their Pork Ribs & Pork Slice options. The prawns for the Pork Ribs Noodles were kept intact while the prawns for the Sliced Pork Noodles were neatly cut into half for convenience. Chuckling at Joyce’s disgruntles on having to dirty her fingers, we tucked in. The photo below is the Sliced Pork version btw.
Trying it for the time, I have no basis for comparison. Josephine lamented that the taste maintained its standards but the portion is signifcantly smaller.
My personal take is that the portion is relatively small for $4. The prawns are not really big as what the name suggested and perhaps not as fresh as I would like them to be. But the broth is definitely tasty and the good part is you can go back & request for a refill anytime. Here are the stall details:
